"I can't recommend Lailan highly enough! She was a huge help to us as we navigated a purchase from the mainland. Her patience, understanding of the local market, and connections with other professionals was invaluable in making it a smooth transaction.

We found Lailan through her good reviews here on Yelp and we weren't disappointed. She's highly professional, detail oriented and just a really nice person too." ~ Keld B.
"Lailan is amazing and I'd highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Kona area.

She's pleasant, honest, and extremely responsive. She even will babysit other agents and keep on them to follow through.

In addition to being a great real estate agent she has basically been our island representative and helped with everything from inspections to financing and insurance recommendations." ~ Steve M.
"Lailan, is just beyond FABULOUS.... She went way way over our expectations, to help us find a home in a timely manner and one that would be great for our family. I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family, who is looking for a home or any real estate. And to top it off she's a local girl born and raised here in the island, and understands how it is to live in Hawaii with all the high costs. Lailan, is very knowledgeable, understanding, and thorough on everything. If you got questions, well she got the answers for you and even to find a lender as well.  

"Lailan is doing well in the real estate industry for three reasons. She is a go-getter, seeks out the best for her clients, and she is born and raised Big Island, which, is the key to her success. She will be able to match the client with the local market. Congratulations for choosing Lailan for your real estate needs.~ Daisy M.
"Lailan is absolutely the best realtor on the island. We were purchasing from the mainland and she took care of so much during closing. We will definitely use her for our next purchase and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.~ Steve N.
"She is very sweet and professional. Help us to found a nice house in Hawaii . Lead us to went through all things step by step. We become very good friend after purchasing house." ~ Lailani K.
" Very professional and was very good at communicating. Easy to ask questions and if she didn’t know the answer she immediately tried to get one for me. Will work with her again in future. " ~ Matt M.
" Lailan was fantastic. Professional, punctual, trustworthy and great personality. She was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond. We would definitely recommend her to others and will work with her again if we purchase any more real estate on the west side of the big island. " ~ Jeremy B.
" If you're not from Hawai`i, rest assured she will guide you through the unique intricacy of local market/process and that she is well-versed from humble home to luxury resort, big ranch, you name it. My parents who reside in MN also took part in the transaction were very comfortable working with her and trusted her after seeing how she handled everything. 
If you are from Hawai`i, she upholds our local value 100% and she respects and understands you. It was evident in every step of the way. Her conduct with care also extends to other people who take part in the process. So you know you are in good hands when you work with this Kona girl. This was my first family home (and on another island) and I would not have been able to make it happen if it weren't for her, especially with dealing with seller's agent who weren't exactly helpful in facilitating the transaction smoothly.
Lailan is a fantastic agent. Give her a call. You will be glad you did when you are sitting in your new home after closing. #teamlailan rocks!!!" ~ Makato S (cont. from above).
" I really enjoyed working with Lailan while I was purchasing a home in Kailua-kona. She is honest , working hard and respond quickly and genuinely care about you. I highly recommend you to contact Lailan if you are looking for a real estate agent in Kailua-kona. "~ Alex R.
"We are blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Lailan on the purchase of our new home. With all the emotions that can come with being a new homeowner she kept us calm and confident by being responsible, responsive, and positive. Lailan is so much fun to work with! She follows up and follows through. We appreciated the continued communication throughout the process. Even if it was just a quick text during the waiting periods of the lender or sender, she would let us know there was nothing pending on our side. That was important to us to know that we were on track. Being a local girl made it easy to communicate with Lailan, I never felt hesitant to question something. She made us feel very comfortable. At the end we celebrated all together. Lailan was part of the process and has now become part of the family. Take my words as a true testimonial. We highly recommend Lailan Bento for your relator needs.  Mahalo nui loa,"~ Rebecca S.
" Excellent across the board! Very responsive and caring. Took the time to explain things when needed. Even paid for some items to expedite the process of the escrow. Will definitely use her again for future sales and purchases and recommending her to everyone that is in need of a great realtor."   ~ Nicole J.
" Lailan has been very professional and through the entire real estate process. We had a number of unusual events and she was able to overcome them. Thank you for all of your help."   ~ Chris F.
"We have relied on Lailan for two condo purchases now. Buying property from another state can be complex but Laila's extensive local knowledge and resources made both purchases painless. She was able to help negotiate great prices and kept us informed every step of the way. If you want a realtor who is a partner in the process, make your first call to Lailan Bento." ~ Amber M.
"Lailan is an island girl with forward thinking. Each time I have dealt with her in purchases or referrals she is professional and exceeds the limitations where most agents may quit or give up. She is knowledgeable about Hawaii Real Estate and market trends to get the win-win for buyers and sellers. From the mountain to the ocean -on the Windward or Leeward side-she's the one to contact.  

I highly recommend Lailan for all your Real Estate needs." ~ Lani L.
"Lailan goes above & beyond with her services. She has amazing work ethic & truly cares about her clients. She caters to their specific needs & has really focused in on helping our family. She cares about everyone, especially us local people & for that I appreciate her even more. I would highly recommend using her for all if your real estate needs. She responds at all times of the day & night & gets things done efficiently & is very proactive in her dealings & doings."
~ Kapuamelia L.
"Lailan helped us with the remote purchase of our condo in Kona. She is knowledgeable, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make sure all details are addressed. Lailan went above and beyond and helped us to feel comfortable yet never pressured with our transaction. We highly recommend her!" ~ Scott S.
"I am so fortunate to have found Lailan when I moved to the Big Island. As my Realtor, she helped me find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was patient as I traveled from the mainland to look at homes over several months and cautioned me about making unreasonable offers when I fell too quickly for overpriced homes.

In short, she was always on my side working to make my house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Lailan was that she was always more focused on answering my questions, giving me good advice, and finding homes that met my needs than she was on closing a deal. I would recommend her to anyone."  ~ Danielle S.
"It was a real pleasure to work with Lailan in selling our house in Kailua-Kona. We had already purchased a new home so needed our old home to sell as quickly as possible. She was extremely conscientious, dedicated, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the entire process and went over and above in so many ways to make our sale happen. She did so many constructive and unanticipated things that we would never expect from a real estate agent. Lailan is truly a hardworking and diligent professional who makes every effort to deliver a seamless sales experience and always follows through, despite having to deal with other much less professional and disagreeable agents. She showed extreme patience, humility and a high level of tolerance when dealing with prospective buyers’ agents that really shouldn’t be in the business because they don’t know the meaning of “customer service”...unlike Lailan! We highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs and would not hesitate to use her again should we find ourselves in need of a kind, competent, efficient, experienced and well-qualified agent. Thank you, Lailan, for everything!"  ~ Karen C.
"Lailan Bento SOLD my single family residence located in Kailua-Kona. I listed my house twice prior with no luck. From the second she took on my listing she worked hard for me! Lailan got me an offer within the first 2 weeks of listing. She is dependable and hard working and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home. I’ll be calling Lailan for my next purchase!" ~ Lewis C.
"My husband and I have worked with many other agents in the mainland and know what is the norm. Lailan is exceptional. She was above board in all the areas that we expect an agent to represent us, in this case, the buyers. I would recommend her highly without any reservation. I would love to see her have huge success and mentor agents starting out as she is a shining example of what is good in the real estate world. She is the agent to use!" ~ Edith O.
"I bought a home in Hawaii, sight unseen from the Mainland. It was a big decision to not fly over and inspect the home and area myself, but I had the utmost confidence in Lailan. She went above and beyond to help me out; driving all over the place, doing inspections, taking pictures, and making me feel confident about my purchase. After closing, when I finally arrived, my home far exceeded my expectations. I am extremely happy with my purchase and with Lailan's performance. I would highly recommend her services."  ~ Jerry K.
" Lailan is fantastic. She was our sellers agent and works very hard to assist you with your every need. Definitely we would use her services again. She is diligent and responsive, everything you need in a great agent. " ~ Cameron D.
"Lailan has been wonderful to work with when we purchased our most recent property. After helping us with our first home two years ago it was no question who I would ask to help me this time! She is a breath of fresh air from other real estate agents in Kona. She works hard with you to see the process through to closing. If you want someone loyal, honest, reliable, and excellent at their job, Lailan is the realtor for you! " ~ Ray S.
"We HIGHLY recommend Lailan Bento as a qualified real estate agent! She listened to what we were looking for and had a great variety of places for us to see. Her expertise and knowledge of the area helped us make a sensible offer on our (now) new condo! The process was explained every step of the way and her tenacious attitude with the bank & mortgage broker was awesome! We could not be more grateful to have Lailan on our side. She has helped us make our dream of owning a bit of paradise a reality. We look forward to working with her again when we retire to the beautiful isle of Hawaii. " ~ Sharon K.
"Lailan was a blessing in what could have been a really stressful process trying to buy a house near Kailua-Kona while living and working on the mainland. She was a rock! She is hardworking, professional, great personality to work with and super knowledgeable about real estate and so much more. We recommend her without hesitation and will work with her again if we ever buy/sell on the west side of the Big Island. Super trustworthy too!! She got us our house and we are thrilled." ~ Jennifer B.
"Lailan is fast, efficient and smart when it comes to Kona Real Estate. She has great knowledge of the area being a local girl born and raised on the island. That makes a huge difference when I was searching for a place. She is very thorough and does not rush or pressure you into buying something you are not 100% sold on. And she's young and pretty. Can't beat that!" ~ Mike S.
"I just wanted to take a moment to express my sincere thankfulness and gratitude that I have for Lailan. I was given the task to help oversee buying a property for a very dear friend of mine. (He resides full time in California) but considers Hawaii especially Kona to be his home away from home. I recently reconnected with Lailan only to find out that she now sells real estate. Her vast knowledge quickly turned into us finding several possibilities. I'm extremely humbled to have been given the opportunity to work with Lailan. She's not looking for a quick commission she really takes the time to listen and understand you and your families needs and she ultimately finds you your dream home. That's who I want working for me. Lailan I'm blessed to call you friend and look forward to working with you again." ~ Rodney A..
"Lailan is the most incredible things in Hawaii!!
She made buying a piece of Hawaii property so much fun! My wife's so fired up, now she wants Lailan to help her find an investment property for herself?? Buying something in Hawaii can be quite challenging but with Lailan at your side, problems solved!" ~ VM J.
"We couldn't have asked for a better realtor than Lailan. She was extremely helpful, professional and a pleasure to work with. We live on the mainland and Lailan was a huge help in navigating much of the process from afar. Her knowledge of the local market and connections to other professionals were invaluable in making us feel confident in the purchase. We highly recommend her!" ~ Kelly P.
"We recently relocated from Oahu to Kailua Kona for a new job and had to find a place to purchase quickly. We were indeed fortunate to find Lailan through a recommendation as she was so helpful in searching for several housing options and scheduling numerous appointments to look at the properties. We had several issues regarding the sellers agent and the escrow service but Lailan professionally guided us through the process. She was always available to take our calls and responded to our numerous email questions right away. Her personality is captivating and always pleasant no matter what the crisis. Through her tireless efforts, we were able to purchase a beautiful house in the short time line that we had." ~ Gary M.
"Ms Bento is a hard working agent. Weather working with $200,000 or 2 million she gives you her full attention to your service. She was always available to answer our questions and give progress updates." ~ Tuti K.
"We were so fortunate to have worked with Lailan as she made absolutely everything about the process easy especially as much of the transaction was performed from out of state. She is personable and knowledgeable. We couldn't be more pleased with how our purchase went and it is in large part to having had the opportunity to work with Lailan. Without hesitation we would refer friends and family to her for their Hawaii real estate needs and if we need another purchase in the future, she will be the first one to hear from us! ~ EM W.
"Lailan is THE most hard working, honest and driven realtor I know on Hawaii (big island). When deciding to sell my home, it wasn't an easy decision at first and knew that it could possibly take some extra hustle to get it done in a specific timeframe, which meant I needed someone dedicated to to her real estate career. I've known Lailan for over 24 years growing up in Kona and saw her drive to always do her best for her clients, and that's when I knew without a doubt Lailan had to be the one to sell my home. 
There were so many unforeseen challenges that came up, but without fail, Lailan stepped up to the plate to go above and beyond to make it happen!
If you are looking for someone that can help you buy a home that has experience, knowledge and resources, Lailan is your girl. She has connections in every area and in Hawaii that's golden because it's not what you know, but who you know."  ~ Sanya H.
"Lailan is an amazing realtor. She has knack for establishing the perfect balance of being intuitive and attentive to your needs while not being intrusive. Her knowledge of the process, laws etc is excellent and in the event she does not have an answer she will seek it out and respond promptly. Lailan has extensive local knowledge and contacts/connections. Many people outside of Hawaii don't fully understand the advantage that those relationships provide to a client. Lailan most of all is persistent and positive. Despite some challenges that my home posed because of layout and potential permitting concerns she was very successful in finding me a offer that I was happy with. In short, I would highly recommend Lailani to help you sell or find a home." ~ Valery L.
"Lailan was the hardest working agent that I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She went the extra mile for me in every aspect for the purchase of the home that I purchased, from the beginning to the closing, and for that I'm for ever grateful." ~ Angelo B.
"Lailan is a true professional RA who helped me to find a house. She is honest, great in follow up and always protect my interest.  Mahalo Lailan and thank you so much!" ~ Jak H.
"Lailan brokered our remote purchase of a condo in Kona; we have nothing but high praise for her! She went above/beyond to make things work for us and then helped out with some things after closing. She knows the market and will give you honest, helpful advice. I would recommend Lailan to my best friend; I think that says it all. ~ Scott D.
