"Lester is very patient with me, there were time that I snapped at him because every time we put in an offer someone else get. My husband and I hardly have the same days of so when my husband worked night at my days off, he made sure to show us all the properties that I requested. Although we offered to meet him at the locations he insisted to go with him and took us to all of them. The most important thing that I like about Lester is the communication. He gave us head ups about properties and suggestions. There was one that I really like the property and location but the owner want the buyer to rent the it to the owner until they find a place to stay. Thank you for the feedback Lester. It is my first time to buy a house and had no expirience of the stressful situation if buying a house so I thank Lester for his hard work and got us a house within two months of searching "

"I highly recommend Lester as a real estate agent. I am a Marco Polo owner and am displaced due to the fire. Lester was recommended to me so I called him to ask him to help me find a rental property. He sent me listings and gave me contact info for the ones I was interested in. All the while, I thought that this was part of his job and he would get a commission on the unit I rented. I found out that it wasn't part of his job. He helped me out of the kindness of his heart. He always answered my emails and phone calls promptly and was so pleasant to speak with and eager to help. He is not only a great agent but also a good humanitarian. What more could you ask for in a business professional?"

"Need a real estate agent? Then you better call Lester Salazar. Les is fairly new to the real estate game but you wouldn't know it by his expertise and professionalism. From day one he had a plan mapped out as to what we would do and when we would do it. He provided daily updates via text, email, or phone call and goes beyond the call of duty to make sure every need is taken care of. I've had more than a few real estate agents in my life and this is a fact and indisputable: Lester Salazar is the best agent I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and call Les. You won't regret it."

"I would like to nominate Lester Salazar for the 2021 Aloha ‘Aina Realtor Award. I was born in Honolulu and currently live in New York City. With the current pandemic and my aging mother, I decided to move back to Honolulu to be closer to family. Lester was a true pro in helping me search for homes that met my criteria, setting up zoom calls to view the properties, coordinating with the mortgage broker and submitting all the offers and counter offers. This also involved videoing homes that we eventually decided not to make offers on. Lester is a consummate professional that does his job with so much Aloha! An example of this is shortly before closing, he sent us an email with links to Hawaiian Electric, Board of Water Supply, Internet providers, etc. Truly helpful and necessary in setting up our new home. He is amazing and I honestly don't know how we could have purchased our home without him. He was a pleasure to work with and so I wholeheartedly nominate Lester for this award! "
