“Christina and her team handled our last two sales. The professionalism of everyone involved made it a pleasure to work with them. All of our questions, concerns and issues were quickly answered. With their knowledge of the commercial building market and keeping us informed every step of the transaction, I wouldn’t hesitate to have CIS represent us on another commercial project. Thank you!”

“Property for me is personal, I’m a hands on investor. I had a local island friend/realtor and I always said I would want that individual to sell the property, however after getting an undesirable estimate of a listing price, I was pretty disappointed and decided not to sell. I had been receiving Christina’s post cards for a few years back and kept her post cards as inspiration and market value data. I contacted Christina (she answered the phone herself) and asked her opinion on the fly, since multifamily/commercial real estate washer specialty, and she gave me a vastly higher price range. I signed a contract with Christina due to her vast knowledge and experience with commercial real estate. Christina’s marketing is off the charts amazing; postcards, social media, drone footage, professional photography, etc…. When the property was listed, there was so much interest, the results were eight offers; six of them exceedingly over asking with the end result of $110K over the list price and multiple backup offers. Christina was present for every showing, walkthrough, inspection with the buyer. When you need a professional, please use someone that is an expert in their field. I gained an EXTRA $600K + with Christina as my commercial real estate realtor. For an investor off island, Christina is amazing at having clients in different time zones. Christina listens, she’s all business and she knows the value of time and money. She skillfully articulates to her clients, keeping them informed of each step until everything is recorded. If YOU/YOUR COMPANY wants top dollar for your hard earned investment property, Christina is the TOP choice.”

“My family and I inherited two properties from our mom, who recently passed away. We hired Christina Dwight as our listing broker because she came highly recommended. Throughout the process, Christina was there to guide the way and make sure we understood every step. Because she does this each and every day, she knew how to navigate this process which we had only done ourselves once or twice. It wasn’t easy getting everyone on board, but at each step, Christina’s thorough explanations and expertise in how to handle the buyers made our decisions clearer and easier to explain. Both properties have now sold for more than our asking price, and we can move on with our lives and get back to being the family Mom always wanted us to be. We can now move forward knowing we honored all of Mom’s wishes for both properties. Thank you, Christina!”

“I chose Christina to help me sell my property in Hawaii due to her experience with multi-family properties. Her marketing efforts were very targeted using her established investor database. Through every step of the process, she was diligent and professional. Once signing the engagement Christina acted quickly to gather due diligence and get the property listed within two weeks. Her efforts produced multiple offers and in the end, I settled on a cash buyer. I was not in Hawaii during the sale, but Christina handled everything for me. I would definitely consider using Commercial Investment Strategies for future real estate transactions in Hawaii.”

Christina was very easy to talk with; she understood our family situation and goals. Her professionalism and expertise guided us through every step of the process.
Christina provided us with detailed and thorough research which helped us to choose the best options and to quickly ( in less than four months from the listing) close a satisfactory deal.

“It is our immense pleasure to recommend Christina Low Dwight, a real estate agent specializing in commercial properties. Despite the covid-19 virus pandemic, Christina made it possible to sell. She had an initial meeting with us, diligently taking notes regarding specific needs to sell our 15-unit apartment building. Her recommended minor changes worked like a charm. Coupled with excellent use of search engines and real estate databases the property got sold in no time. In our humble opinion, Christina mastered the art of contract negotiations which is why it’s a win-win, to both the buyers and us, the sellers, considering the challenges in the current market. My sisters and I found Christina to be highly attentive, professional, and personable. All our concerns were addressed. She even returned phone calls and emails within the day; which is why we felt so valued and important. Hence, my sisters and I, are pleased to recommend Christina Low Dwight. She is the cut above the rest in the commercial real estate industry!”

“Christina Low Dwight is a true professional. She is organized and focused, and very detail oriented. Her specialized knowledge in the multi-family market was the key in selling our property. Christina’s listing presentation with property analysis allowed us to select the right strategy for the current real estate market. I signed the listing agreement on May 23, 2020 and the property closed on July 17, 2020. Christina’s guidance resulted in a smooth experience in this stressful time. She kept me informed throughout the process, and always available if I had a question. If you are selling or buying a commercial property I would highly recommend contacting Christina.”

She made the complex process of selling commercial property easy & seamless. From bringing in immediate multiple officers, advising on the best offer to accept, to helping close the transaction, her wide real estate knowledge, experience & counsel made a stressful task much easier every step of the way. Her customer service & responsiveness always exceeded my expectations. Also, to complicate matters, I lived out of state & had unique tax requirements which she successfully navigated. Christina’s communications to me were also clear, concise & direct which I appreciated. I would use Christina’s services again in a heartbeat & her commission was worth every penny!”
-Kim Wong, Seller
“I knew from Christina’s marketing efforts for other multifamily properties over the years that she had a singular focus in this market. Throughout a longer than expected listing and sales process, Christina was always proactive in trying to work the sale of the property. From resetting expectations to providing feedback and offering suggestions and ultimately in negotiating a deal that worked for us. Experience, knowledge, reach and tenacity cannot be overemphasized when looking to buy or sell a multifamily property in Hawaii and Christina has all of these characteristics. Looking forward to working with her in the future.”

“It was a pleasure working with Christina. She was professional in her handling of our transaction, which involved many details. She was incredibly responsive, and always made herself available given the various times zones of our location. She has a vast knowledge on multifamily apartments, which helped us understand the specifics in her markets. I would strongly recommend Christina Dwight for anyone seeking successful results.”
-Rico Saken, Seller
“When Christina first approached me to consider selling my building, I was reluctant because I didn’t know her and I wasn’t excited about the estimated value of my property at that time. Christina understood my position and concerns, but kept in touch without pressuring me. She kept me informed about the improving market and potential replacement properties. After a couple years, I saw the value of my property increase to a level that got me more interested in taking advantage of the market. Since our first meeting, I’ve also had time to learn more about Christina’s substantial expertise and capabilities, and eventually felt comfortable and confident enough to have her represent me. Subsequently, we listed my property at a price point that I was very happy with, just to test the market. To my surprise, I started receiving interest and felt very encouraged and excited about moving forward. In a relatively short period of time, I received a very attractive offer and proceeded with the sale. Christina was very professional and responsive during the entire process of marketing and selling my building. She has very specialized knowledge about this multi family market and provided sound expertise and advice. She was always sensitive to my goals and specific needs, and helped me reach them.”
– Rodney Leong, Seller

– Jon Lam, Seller
“Christina is the consummate professional. In the two and a half years that we’ve been her client, she has helped us both purchase and sell several multi-family investment properties with great returns. Our partnership group comprises individuals who have been in various sectors of the real estate business for over thirty years — from appraisals, to loans, to construction — yet Hawaii was a wholly new market to us. Christina quickly helped us identify trends in the market, familiarize us with up-and-coming locations and gave us access to a vast network of sellers and buyers. Besides her wealth of knowledge, contacts and experience, her clients will appreciate her go-getter attitude, her organizational skills, frequent reminders and prompt responses to phone calls and emails. Whether you’re an experienced investor or new to the multi-family market, she should be on top of the list of realtors you reach out to.”

She moved myself and my brothers through what might have been a ‘sticky sale situation’ with aplomb and grace dealing with every detail in a proficient manner.

“As a first time investor, I was very apprehensive as to how the process of acquiring a real estate property would go, but working with Christina made everything seamless and easy. What I value most about Christina is three fold.
Firstly, I appreciated that Christina was always there throughout every step of the entire process. From viewing open houses to finally signing closing documents, she was always there in person to assist me and answer any of my questions.
Secondly, I liked that Christina handled all correspondence with the seller for me. Especially when coming to a Purchase and Sale Agreement, she was firm to negotiate all of my requests.
Finally, Christina works in an incredibly expedient manner, which was pivotal in acquiring a property in Hawaii’s fast-paced market. She would allow me to walk through properties within just hours of me expressing interest in them and she also took care of all of my requests and concerns the very moment they came up. I highly recommend Christina for anyone looking to invest in Hawaii real estate.”
– Chris Chock represented as buyer for replacement property.
“Christina Dwight is one of the most motivated and hardest working persons I’ve ever met. Her extensive knowledge of Hawaii’s commercial real estate is unmatched.
I had been unsuccessful for many years in selling my building. However, after a few minutes of talking with Christina, I could tell we understood each other immediately.
Shortly after, Christina brought exactly the type of buyer we were looking for. The process was so easy for me and I felt really comfortable knowing Christina was looking out for my interests.
I will only work with Christina for my future real estate needs and will always recommend her to anyone looking to invest in Hawaii real estate.”
– Jenny Wong, represented as seller for relinquished property and as buyer for replacement property.
“I called Christina because she was a specialist in commercial real estate. She was very professional and had a very good understanding of the market for apartment buildings. Christina was very responsive and found a buyer for our property.
It was great working with Christina and I am very satisfied with her representation. I highly recommend Christina, she is the one you need to know if you are dealing with real estate investments in Hawaii.”
– Colin Chung, represented as seller for relinquished property and as buyer for replacement property.
“I am always hesitant recommending anybody and unless I am 100% satisfied with the service I receive, I refuse to write recommendation letters. It’s fair to say that I have written letters as such, a handful of time, at best, over the 35 years of doing business as a real estate investor. Recommending Christina, however, is a no-brainer.
My first meeting with Christina was arranged after I called her randomly, and rather than being ignored, she was very receptive to meet me and advise me on real estate in Honolulu as I was completely new to the area. From the moment I met her and discussed what my needs were, I knew that I had gotten lucky. I had met The Best of the Best in the business.
Christina recognizes the needs of her clients immediately, which in my opinion, is the most essential part of this business. She is focused and responsive, organized and communicative, kind, professional, and on top of that, she has a wonderful personality. I can honestly say that I hit the jackpot when I met her, and she is the main reason I will continue investing in Honolulu.”
– Shardad Sanjideh, real estate investor, retired appraiser, represented as seller for relinquished property and as buyer for replacement property.
“Christina Dwight’s professionalism and personal assistance was above and beyond anything I’ve experienced before. Her knowledge and expertise in commercial real estate, along with her ability to be proactive, allowed me and my family a smooth closing for the sale of our property.
Throughout the process, I felt fully supported by Christina. She was always present to answer my questions, explain what was happening, and address my concerns. I highly recommend Christina to anyone looking for a true real estate professional.”
– Trin Hunt, represented as seller for relinquished property
“Mrs. Dwight was beyond helpful when it came to helping my husband and I sell our family’s apartment complex on Oahu. The laws and processes when selling a commercial building on the Islands is very complex.
Christina explained the entire process in layman’s terms and walked me thru the entire transaction which took only 45 days. Given the size/number of units was very impressive!”
– Chris and Dawn Ho, represented as seller for relinquished property
“My family and I would highly recommend the services of Christina Dwight. She assisted me in both the sale of our property, as well as finding an off market replacement property for our 1031 exchange.
She was both professional and responsive at all times to our needs. I would recommend her services without hesitation.”
– Bruce Arinaga, represented as seller for relinquished property and as buyer for replacement property
“I have only the highest praise and recommendation for Christina. She has recently handled a property exchange and some other assorted real estate related functions for our family and everything proceeded without a hitch from start to finish. Our search times went from months to weeks and from weeks to days. She has always been fast, efficient, knowledgeable and most of all a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to take care of any of their real estate needs.
Thank you Christina for getting the job done and taking some of the stress out of my life. “
– Wesley Wong, represented as seller for relinquished property and as buyer for replacement property.
“Christina has shown a level of professionalism that is above the norm for Honolulu and has carefully culled the existing owner database to bring as opportunities assets that I would otherwise not be aware of. In this regard and others she adds value to the customer looking to buy apartments in this market.”
Steve Heimler, property owner and manager of over one billion in assets nationwide, represented as buyer.
“I appreciate your congratulations on this day of “recording” that seemed to elude us despite heroic efforts by many, including yourself. It was a year-long journey with many ups and downs and some moments of despair.
I thought we worked well together despite some rocky moments. My family and I appreciated your tenacity and your ability to get things done when needed. I want you to know that our entire family really like the property. It meets our current and future needs.
My husband joins me in sending our thanks to you.”

“It has been a pleasure having you represent me as my agent, Christina. Your professionalism, experience, and attention to detail helped to create considerable interest in my property.
I was pleasantly surprised to receive multiple offers from qualified buyers — some over our asking price. Your persistence in finding a suitable replacement property allowed me to successfully complete a 1031 Exchange. Thank you for keeping me on course with reminders of important timelines which were crucial to the exchange.
I look forward to having you assist me with all future transactions.
