Tell Us Your Story

Cara is the ABSOLUTE BEST!

We can't think of enough kind things to say about her. Imagine combining a caring mom, a best friend, a personal advocate, and an industry expert into one and that's what you get with Cara. She took all the intimidation of buying our first home and replaced it with clarity, excitement, and peace. We recommend her to anyone and everyone for their real estate needs.

We would give 10 stars if we could.

This is the dream team right here. They guided us every step of the way, timed and planed strategically the listing to optimize the open house with their magic had OVER 50 people show up and 3 offers within 12 hours. The open house was so well advertised and planned with signs, balloons and extra realtors to guide and tour: They guided us on how to properly stage and gave us a clear and concise instructions on a punch out list before open house that was really helpful. They took calls from us anytime of the day. Every barrier along the way they provided solutions. They have a strong positive relationship with the real estate community and this is crucial. We have real estate agents in our extended family and their professionalism is top notch. This is our 3rd time using Melanie Vitalie and adding Cara Crimmins was a phenomenal marketing genius value making them truly the DREAM real estate team. Today is the 1st and in the midst of closing and moving we are making sure to leave this review as we are beyond impressed.

Melanie & Cara were amazing helping us with the purchase of our first home.

In this crazy market having them by our side was vital! They guided us through the whole process and were quick to respond to questions and ensure a smooth transaction. They went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our new, perfect-to-us, home. Thank you guys!

We just finished our home purchase with Melanie & Cara after many months of looking for a home.

They are a dream team that always has your back and your needs in mind. We must have looked at over 40 homes and not once was it an issue that we still needed to find “the one”. Their patience and experience along the way was reassuring and made the whole process run smoothly. I highly recommend these wonderful ladies! Not only are they professional, they are kind, well respected in the real estate community and always a pleasure to be around!

Maui Reef Adventures- February 2023

My fiancé and I always wanted to own a condo in Maui, Hawaii.

Rent was always more than what we could afford until we met Melanie and Cara who helped us buy our dream condo 6 years ago. I have to say that Melanie and Cara are by far the BEST realtors we've ever worked with, their professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness and their ability to close the deal was Outstanding!!! They literally made the process so effortless that we decided to buy a second condo! Most recently, my fiancé and I decided to sell one of our Condos. Once again, Melanie and Cara were there to assist us. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a smooth process while we moved back to the mainland. I don’t know how they did it but we got more than what we expected! If you are reading this post, I would HIGHLY recommend reaching out to Melanie and Cara. They are fantastic partners and I promise you.. will not regret it!

There are not enough superlatives that we can give to Cara Crimmins and her team.

We arrived in Maui with a dream of condo ownership and not much else in the way of details as to how or where to make it happen. Cara really listened and with patience, creativity, and good humor, honed in on our needs, and matched us with a condo complex. We then waited until an opportunity arose that matched our timing, and she assisted every step of the way, through the bidding and closing process (we were off-island), and beyond, going above and beyond our expectations every time.

Cara worked with us for a year as we tried to find the right house.

.. we finally purchased a home and moved in, and couldn't be happier. Cara explained the process along the way and anticipated our needs before showing us homes, and made sure we were comfortable with each step. I've referred others to Cara and they're all happy in their new homes!

2022-David & Amy Peterson

Cara Crimmins is an outstanding real-estate agent.

Her enthusiasm is contagious, her commitment to helping her buyers find the right place is awesome, and her willingness to go above and beyond made a tremendous difference in the success of our move to Maui. We came to this purchase as relatively seasoned buyers and Cara's expertise was apparent immediately and it made our sight unseen purchase comfortable and perfect.

Pat & Jackie Morrisey

The team of Melanie and Cara handled every issue that came up (even with COVID) with a personal touch and treated our house as their own.

11/17/2020 - jatkinson972 Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Kula, HI.

Melanie and Cara did what no other realtor could do.

They orchestrated a miracle with putting together necessary preparations and fixed significant deficiencies of our rental and turned our home into a pristine gem ready to sell in just 6 days. Amazingly in just 23 days it was sold. This team partnered with us and we never had to set foot on island. They literally took care of every detail from painting interior to getting the countertops reconditioned. Also, the integrity and experience these two Professionals possess are next to none. When we encountered critical decisions their advice was spot on every single time!!! We trust them and they delivered what they said they would do. Even after the sale they assisted us with closing tasks with peripheral vendors such as lawn care, trash pick up, termite program, utilities, and even helped clear out our storage cabinet! If you want a dynamic duo just look for the two wearing capes. They definitely put their money where their service is!!! We are so blessed to have Melanie and Cara represent us! We definitely recommend their service, you will not be disappointed!!!

Danny Okawa- 2022

Melanie and Cara Crimmins have been excellent to work with.

They have been with us every step of the way not only from the beginning of our search but months after the purchase, helping us to get settle in and find the resources we need to improve our home. When things got a little bumpy with our purchase they were on top of every detail helping us navigate and solve the issues, even taking responsibility to solve issues when others would not. They are well connected and very knowledgeable about Maui and were even able to help negotiate the asking price saving us 10’s of thousands on our purchase. If you desire five star excellence we highly recommend Melanie and Cara you will not be disappointed!

Reviews on Zillow
Average Rating
"I want to give praise and commendation to the two magnificent and most professional ladies, Melanie Vitale and Cara Crimmins of Elite Pacific who recently facilitated our buying our home in Maui. They went far beyond the call of duty, becoming literal family/Ohana friends to us during the very remarkable expedited process from viewing our home in mid June to the closing of escrow in mid July. We had been involved with numerous other realtors the previous few months until we met with Melanie and Cara. The two of them are clearly in a brilliant league of their own. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in all matters relating to real estate and home purchasing to utilize their services and exceptional expertise. I personally guarantee you will experience exactly the same remarkable performance."
