Joe is an amazing loan officer. He answered all of my questions quickly, and went above and beyond to make sure that I felt comfortable with every decision and that I was always informed with the status of the loan. I would quickly recommend him to my friends who are looking to buy a home and want the easiest process possible. Mahalo Joe 🙂

My wife and I were purchasing our first home and as you can imagine we were nervous about the entire process. Working with Kent Okihiro, however, was the best decision we could have made in this new experience. He understood that as first time home buyers we needed a little extra time and information to be confident and comfortable with our purchase. He answered even our most mundane questions with care and attention, offering his expert recommendations when needed. We never once felt like we were working with a loan officer but instead with a friend. My wife and I are now proud owners of our first home and we couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. I highly recommend HME and Kent Okihiro for all your mortgage needs!
