“Ron has professionally handled my real estate needs over the last 10 years from Waimea to Volcano. He has sold my uncle’s condo in Kona and through his CRS network sold two properties of his in San Francisco, all in record time.” – Jacqueline Gillen

Good work- well done, you are a professional.

To Whom It May Concern:  A short note to say much Mahalo to Ron and Jocelyn for their patience and professionalism in helping me sell my home at Mauna Loa Estates in Volcano. The length of time it took to sell my home was not really a concern for me, but the amount it sold for, I felt, was indeed a fair price to me. Kudos to Ron and Jocelyn for their excellent work! Aloha, Emerick Lamontagne.

Congratulations on a job well done!!! With best regards, Rick & Quack

Ron – Rita and I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the sale of our property in Volcano Village. We know it’s a difficult market for land sales, to say the least, and we appreciate you finding a buyer and negotiating an excellent price on our behalf for the property. From the first time we met you more than 10 years ago, we realized that you are a realtor we trust. You’ve advised us well and been of service on many, many occasions. Thank you very much for everything.
Ray Stoddard & Rita Harris
As regards Ronald (Ron) A. Riggs (REALTOR, Broker, CRS) successful efforts to help me sell my “Kilauea house”: It is my experience and firm belief that Ron can be trusted, and he was able to present adequate advice when putting my interesting “artistic” house on the Hawaii market this summer (2015). And I did not even have to be present: All papers could be signed despite my absence from the Big Island. In particular his long experience made it feasible for him to focus on the essentials and report about both good and (minor!) bad “news” in a neutral way and thus balancing his recommendations in a trustworthy way so that both buyer and seller felt confidence in his doings.
The process of selling our home from the mainland would have been unobtainable without Ron’s guidance. We have known Ron for many years, he is also a good neighbor to have in our area. He guided us through the process with a level head, although we were at time indecisive and balked at some things the buyers came up with. Ron listened to our ramblings and came up with answers only a knowledgeable and dedicated person could. Ron provided us with options and solid recommendations for things that needed to be taken care of, many times doing them himself. We consider Ron the best, for the honesty and professionalism he provided. We highly recommend his dedication and services to all clients. Thank you, Ron, for all of your hard work. We appreciate it so much.

Ron provided us with truly world-class service. In our particular experience, he was acting as a dual agent (which is normally a very tough balancing act for any realtor). He was flawless in fulfilling his fiduciary responsibilities – both to the seller and to us, the buyers. He worked very hard, was conscientious, diligent, professional, and expert in his duties. We’ve dealt with a lot of Realtors through the years, and he is the best and most trustworthy. He really took care of us from the beginning through the end.

I just wanted to give you our warmest mahalo for managing the sale so well. The hale was and still is very close to my heart, so it was good to know its fate in your hands. Best wishes, also from Manfred.
Ron – Maria and I would like to thank you for the excellent level of service that you provided to us in your “dual agent” role assisting us with the purchase of our “home away from home” in Hilo, Hawaii. The selection of properties that you had ready to show us on our three-day buying trip was just what we were looking for– it made the buying decision easy. Your detailed attention to follow-up action was critical to the successful purchase. Your job was particularly challenging because we experienced a serious illness that required a lengthy hospital stay immediately after the contract was signed, and then had to complete the transaction “long distance” from the mainland. Your actions communicating between us and the buyer made everything go off smoothly in the end. We certainly recommend your services to anyone else looking to buy property on the Big Island. With sincere thanks,
John & Maria Edgar
Aloha Ron,
We have owned and sold five houses in our time but never one like the
home you just sold for us in the Volcano Golf & Country Club.
Somehow, you were not only able to see past its plain exterior to the
wonderful home inside, you were able to make multiple buyers see it
your way. And, as if that wasn’t enough, your customer service in
personally handling all the little glitches of the escrow process is
what got us to the finish line. When and if we decide to buy or sell
any more real estate, you are our guy, Ron.
Pam & Kurt Hirabara
Aloha Ron – I simply could not find the appropriate enough way or the definitive words to express my immense gratitude for all you have done. Suffice it to say that your professional service and expertise in selling my home and property in Volcano have been exemplary and much appreciated by me. Truly, I can’t thank you enough. To say the least, you delivered on all that we aimed for in expediting a quick, efficient, accurate and positive sales presentation and transaction. It is hoped that you fully understand just how grateful I am. Finally, it was a pleasure to have worked with you. You are a fine person that deserves the best in life. Needless to say, I will be happy to recommend you to others. Much aloha and mahalo,
