There are very few things that are as happy as closing a property for a client. I have collected a number of testimonials over the years, and developed some wonderful friendships that extend well beyond a real estate transaction.
I look forward to working with you.
My wife and I lost our son through an auto accident, who was the owner of the property. He was having financial problems and was in the middle of trying to do a short sale of his property with Ronda, who was assisting him at the time of his death. We met Ronda at the time we went to recover the body and bring him home back here to California, and she came by to meet us and share her condolences and express how sorry she was about our loss.
Ronda was working very hard to assist our son to get the best possible deal to help him get out from the debt the house had put him in while he was not able to work. He told my wife and I how lucky he was to have met the nicest realty lady who was helping him out. Ronda was a God send to us also, as she was supportive to us in her efforts to continue to sell the house and get the best settlement we could. I cannot express how grateful, and blessed we were by having Ronda at the helm handling the sale of our son’s house. It was very comforting to be able to have her continuing to proceed with trying to sell the property with all the added obstacles that now became apparent. We could sense her sincerity and Trusting her actions and judgment were never an issue.
With us being on the mainland, and not available to handle so many of the necessities that have to along with a sale, upkeep, maintenance, etc. she definitely went the extra mile for our family. Ronda’s patience matches her perseverance to reaching her desired goal and completed the deal.
It could have been a different situation with another realtor, who very easily and understandably so, who could have walked away from all the different tasks that are not a normal part of the process and wish us good luck.
There personal qualities and skills are not something you can teach someone, they are instilled in a person by their values and inner traits developed by the way they conduct and live their lives. Anyone who is fortunate enough to have Ronda working for them, whether as an Agent or Employee, is truly lucky, and better off, for being able to do so.
I had worked with Ms. Day for almost a year before finally purchasing my current home. Knowing my purpose of working with a real estate agent was only to be familiar with the market, Ronda showed me many properties all over the island while teaching me about market trends, common preferences, prices, location differences, and information in other related areas. She really listened to my understanding and thoughts in regards to such investment and during the time we worked together, she never pushed me or intended to push me into purchasing. This made me very comfortable to continually work with her. During the educational process, I varied my decisions so many times but Ronda never complained or stopped working with me. In addition, her extensive knowledge on the financial side really helped my decision-making.
When I suddenly had a housing emergency this past February due to my job, she was on the road helping me again to search for homes. When we finally found my current home, I knew it was exactly what I wanted. Thanks to Ronda’s education through the past year that I was able to make the right decision. As I have never had any experience of purchasing a home, she helped me to go through the transaction smoothly while still educating me of what information and details are necessary to know and be aware.
Most amazingly, she completed the entire transaction within two weeks of time! Before I walked into my new home the first time, she had cleaned my home already and decorated from top to the bottom! She also created for me a beautiful custom-made home decorating book for my future reference! I don’t know what to say but appreciate the fact that I met her.

Review from a Vacation Rental Guest
Our stay was very comfortable and relaxed for the ten days we holidayed at the Waikiki Banyan. The apartment was very clean, modern and cozy without being too small for the both of us, and we felt right at home.We enjoyed the amenities provided, including the huge beds, and the lanai which overlooked the pool and spa and had distant views to Diamond Head.
The welcome package complete with pineapple and chocolate macadamias was much appreciated! We found the apartment to be within a short walking distance to the beach, eateries, and other attractions. Public transport including trolley was virtually at our doorstep, only around the corner. The mini-mart on the ground floor came in handy for last minute necessities.
Our agent Ronda was fabulous and went out of her way to ensure that we were happy and comfortable with everything. She even bought the softest low pillow for me the day after I mentioned my pillows were too high! As we were so busy sightseeing, unfortunately, we didn’t use the pool, but I did enjoy the jacuzzi once. I promise to rectify this when we return to the beautiful Oahu…..Both my sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Banyan and would highly recommend Krzystof’s one bedroom apartment to stay in.
A big mahalo to Ronda for her efforts and friendship during our wonderful holiday. Can’t wait to visit Waikiki again and meet up with our new friend Ronda to finally have that coffee we talked about!

I VERY MUCH enjoyed working with Ronda. She has an outstandingly positive attitude and I believe she genuinely cares about her clients. She goes out of her way to make sure her clients are receiving the best service and support possible through all phases of the transaction. Ronda displays the upmost professionalism and ethics and I would strongly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a home to contact Ronda and trust her knowing that you are in good, capable, and caring hands. She is the BEST!

You’re so awesome Ronda!!! I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for me on my recent transaction; I could not have done it without all your hard work and support!
Ronda is so knowledgeable and was so patient in walking me through a myriad of paperwork and details throughout my complex transaction. She even helped to better educate the buyer’s real estate agent to ensure a more smooth process.
Ronda always had my (client’s) best interest in mind and not her own which is a rare trait to find these days! She took the time to make sure I was comfortable with the decisions I was making.
Ronda spent an enormous amount of time on my transaction more than anyone would ever expect. I was the one stressing but Ronda was always positive and encouraging and her can-do attitude never failed me! Ronda is a person that you can easily develop a great working relationship with; she is honest, trustworthy and credible.
I look forward to working with again on any new ventures and would highly recommend her to my friends and colleagues. Thank you so very much Ronda!!!

Ronda is a very sharp and personable Realtor. She is an expert on both the high end as well as the very complex transactions. I have seen her handle the “diamonds” as well as the “dogs”– both in terms of people and deals, wonderfully.

I have worked with Ronda over the past few years with excellent results. She is completely professional with has a wealth of knowledge about the Oahu real estate market. She is diligent, honest and dependable. Ronda has excellent communication skills, constantly keeping me up to date not only on the real estate market in specific areas of interest but also on every step of the purchase/sale transaction process. She is always reachable and responsive to questions and inquiries.
When issues/problems come up, as they inevitably do in real estate transactions, Ronda quickly and efficiently resolves them. Her reputation in the community and working relationships with other agents is excellent. She is the most hard-working, responsible and trustworthy real estate agent I have worked with and I highly recommend her.

I recently closed a short sale escrow with Ronda being on the seller’s side of the transaction and my company representing the buyer. What a joy Ronda was to work with! Professional, an excellent communicator, and always timely in her communication. If she was unable to take a phone call immediately, she returned it asap.
I like to work with agents who are efficient, diligent, and yet will smile and laugh at the drop of a hat. That’s Ronda! Thanks, Ronda, for all your efforts to make our short sale transaction work so smoothly for all concerned. I look forward to working with you again. Aloha..
