As Clark Realty's Relocation and Referral Manager, Blake Howell is part of the CORE Services team based at our Kailua-Kona office. His primary responsibilities are to provide excellent service to customers who make inquiries from ClarkHawaii.com and to grow our relationship with our LeadingRE network partners. 

Blake has lived on both sides of Hawaii Island, which gives him a unique perspective when working with those who haven't yet decided which area of the Big Island they want to call home. Currently, he lives, works and plays in Kailua-Kona and loves it!

Like many who are transplants to Hawaii, Blake fell in love with the islands on his first visit in the 1980’s and traveled back many times over the years before making a permanent move. On the mainland, Blake’s career was centered around high-tech marketing and advertising. After moving to the Big Island and taking a short sabbatical to settle into his new home, he pursued his real estate career, joining Clark as a sales agent in 2011 with a focus on the North Kona and South Kohala market. Today, he applies technology to real estate to better serve and communicate with clients and to help others pursue their dreams of building a life in paradise.

 

It is a huge risk, and takes a great deal of trust to buy a condo in Hawaii sight unseen from the mainland. Yet that trust was well deserved with the thoughtful interactions I had with Blake.  It couldn't have been easy for him to work with a client he only met via email, and who had very specific criteria in what he wanted for his condo, and at only a certain price.  Especially a client who daily perused the internet listings and asked a ton of questions about possible units. Blake was able to help clarify the glamour of a staged internet listing with the reality of what a unit really was. And even better, he replied immediately. If it took more than 4 hours to reply he would profoundly apologize. When we both found the listing I eventually bought, he jumped on it right away, saw it and sent me honest photos, and without any pressure helped me with an offer.  On the first day it listed there were 4 others seriously interested and another offer. Imagine if Blake had not reacted so promptly.  I didn't have the highest offer, but Blake was able to convince the listing agent that my offer was the best anyway. Then the flurry of documents toward closing. Given I have a very busy life, without time to run out to FedEx or even faxes, the use of docusign made the closing easy.  Everything was efficiently handled by email, with all the essential documents sent in a timely fashion.  We closed in exactly a month. I'm sure you can read that I was incredibly grateful for Blake, and I can vouch that any client can trust Blake for the best possible real estate service.

Thanks Blake, for all of your help and expertise. You have been delightful to work with and we will definitely get in touch when we are ready to sell our other property. Mahalo.

Blake is a very knowledgable and professional agent. He made selling my condo easy. I never even met him, we did all transactions via phone and email due to my living off island. I can't believe how easy he made it by answering all my questions so quickly. I would highly recommend Blake to anyone selling or buying real-estate in Hawaii.

Blake was amazing. He was considerate and went out of his way to do everything in his power to make my house hunt a successful venture. He also did a bit of hand holding and helped clarify the process as escrow took days and days. I would highly recommend Blake for anyone lucky enough to be buying a home on the Big Island.

Thanks for everything you have done for us! We appreciate the quick replies; no matter what time of day we contacted you we alway heard back instantly. It was also very evident you are an experienced realtor in the Kona area; you answered our many questions, and anything you didn't already know you were able to find the answers quick enough or direct us in the right way. Our first experience buying in Kona was a challenge for us as we learned new things, but the one thing we were always confident about was our realtor and we brag about you to everyone. Thanks for making us feel welcome in Kona and we can't wait to work with you again the future!
