Maui is your gateway to some of the best whale watching in the world. The waters off of West Maui and South Maui are shielded by the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala, creating calm and clear waters for high visibility. Humpback whales are also drawn to the area’s shallow waters, less than 600 feet deep, making Maui an ideal spot to start your voyage during the winter whale watching season from December to May. From 1825 to 1860, Lahaina was the center...
I love living on Maui. I used to live in Maui when I was a kid and went through the 3rd grade at Wailuku Elementary. When I lived here many years ago, there was nothing in South Maui but sand and open beaches. We moved back to California and I ultimately remained there for 30+ years. Hawaii must have been in my blood as I had to return. I love the ocean and try to get out kayaking at least once a week if not more. I am drawn to the sea turtles, the...

It’s all about building relationships, here are a few words from some of my past clients:
Sylvia is probably one of the most resourceful professionals we met. Not only does she know her craft extremely well, but she has the perfect combination of being both driven and personable. She is the Energizer Bunny of Maui! She will work tirelessly to help you accomplish your goals, and at the same time earn your respect and friendship. We simply could not have achieved our immediate goals without her. If she were a public corporation, I would buy stock immediately!

Sylvia located a Maui condo for me, and then helped me secure both Federal and State grants for down-payment and closing costs. The condo was a Fannie Mae REO, so there were many extra steps dealing with government negotiators which Sylvia handled flawlessly.
I wholeheartedly recommend Sylvia to anyone looking for a realtor who pays attention to detail and has the ability for creative-problem solving.
Mahalo nui loa, Sylvia – a big thank you for helping making the American dream of home ownership a reality for me!
Sylvia Burton helped us purchase our dream home. Throughout that process, we found that Sylvia was always available to help us. On the rare occasions that she didn’t have an immediate answer to a question, she would quickly do any necessary research and provide us with the information we needed. Although the bulk of her considerable experience in real estate was gained on the mainland, she has adapted quickly to the Maui market and can be relied upon for sound advice and useful perspective. Although our purchase was a short sale, Sylvia showed admirable patience and stamina from start to finish, never losing sight of our goal. We recommend her highly and without hesitation for your real estate needs.

We originally met Sylvia after our previous listing expired after a year of sitting on the market. In that time it had very little activity, interest and showings. Sylvia had a potential buyer, but we were no longer officially listed and she did not know how to find us easily. Within a matter of a few hours she had hunted us down and we were engaged in an active conversation. That particular opportunity fell through, but in the process, she was up to speed on our ocean front condo unit within a matter of days.
Because of her tenacity and her ability to perform and get things done during that experience we decided to re-list our unit and use Sylvia. It is important to understand that we had not met her face-to-face and this would be unusual for me to make a decision like that. However, it was clear that she was different, smart and understood how to work hard. I have bought and sold many properties and never been satisfied with the realtor experience, until now.
After having sat on the market for a year, we listed with Sylvia in October and closed a few weeks later on the last day of December.
Working with Sylvia is a pleasure, it is easy, she is electronic and available. Silvia is the rare realtor that works hard, and in Maui that is a remarkable statement. We met Sylvia on our next visit to Maui after we had sold the property. Having mentioned to her our interest in other properties, she had a list to us within a few hours — it would have been sooner had she not been busy. We have now experienced Sylvia as sellers and as potential buyers.
It is without any reservation that we recommend Sylvia. Without a doubt, buyer or seller, satisfaction is guaranteed.

The things we liked about Sylvia:
Sylvia listened to our needs and found several homes for us, which we might not have otherwise considered. Once we chose a home and only after her diligent negotiations, the offer was accepted . She was very good at keeping us informed and up-to-date with the process. She answered our questions completely and timely. She went above and beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend her to our family, friends or anyone looking for property on Maui.

Sylvia Burton was Awesome helping us Sell our Condo in Kihei Shores. The Facility had many Short Sales prior to our Listing driving prices down. Sylvia was Great helping us Market our Condo and Sell it with a Profit. She made things so easy being the Buyer’s AND Seller’s Agent. All exceptions and conditions were worked out and agreed upon with very little Heartache or Anxiety due to Sylvia’s diligence on making ALL Parties Happy and satisfied. We didn’t want to leave Maui but Sylvia made it a very pleasurable and seemingly painless experience with the Buyers being Totally informed as-to all proceedings. We would overwhelmingly advise Future Sellers OR Buyers to seek Sylvia out if you want an Honest, Reliable and pleasurable Agent looking out for you and yours.
Bruce & Jan Markham Former Maui Residents now on the Mainland.
We wish to thank you for your excellent service in selling our Kihei Shores Condo. The whole experience was very painless for us thanks to your knowledge and your connections, both in California and in Hawaii. Everything went very smoothly and the transaction was finalized very quickly. You were able to get the price that you expected to get for the unit. You were
able to get a higher price for us than we had been told we would be able to ask. Although we live in Canada, everything was handled very efficiently and escrow was very painless.
We enjoyed meeting you and we would certainly recommend you and if ever we need a real estate agent in Maui we would most certainly use your services again.
Thank you very much,
James and Mary Mossman
