Tina was very professional, always kept us informed with status on our listing and activity. The actual listing was very informative and photos were professionally taken. Tina contacted several local Realtors and builders about our property and our lot was one of the first sales in both Bayview and Keauhou Estates in the last 6-9+ months. My wife and I would highly recommend Tina Kitchens for any future listings and/or representing a buyer do to her professionalism, knowledge of the area and walking us through the process of closing our sale.
Very professional and communicates well! I would not hesitate to refer her because she is that good! We closed on time and are very happy! She also has a team that supports her very well
‘Simply the Best!’
No more visits and part time vacations—we sold our house on the mainland and were moving to Hawaii. But how to find a place or even a realtor?
A friend said DERINDA THATCHER. And boy was she right! Before we even left the mainland Derinda showed us around a home we liked with her iPhone. We ended up letting that go, but after looking at several other homes, found our dream.
There was dickering over price but Derinda made it happen. Next the sellers wanted to walk away because they didn’t like our lender (previous problems they had had), but Derinda found a way to keep the deal going. The inspection came and Derinda made that work in our favor. Whatever the crisis or obstacle Derinda magically made it disappear. She even sent us a photo of the spray she uses to keep insects from invading her house. (I often joked that if I wasn’t sure which tissue to buy at Costco i could text Derinda and she would tell me. And of course she would be right!)
Human, warm, fun, punctual, and she gets the job done! Over the years I have had numerous realtors show me houses. I have had 4 realtors help me buy or sell a house. All were good and I appreciate what they did. But none were Derinda.
If you want ‘THE BEST’ go with Derinda.
Derinda helped me find and purchase 2 properties in Kona. She was truly a pleasure to work with! She has been doing this a long time and knows the ropes. Both purchases went very smoothly in spite of the fact I was living in California at the time. We toured a number of properties when I was visiting but when I returned to California she continued to look for properties that would interest me. We did a few home tours on the phone with Facetime. That did not always work well due to phone reception in certain areas but when it failed she sent pictures. I highly recommend Derinda!
Derinda and her team are outstanding professionals in every regard. Throughout the entire process, from listing to staging to showings to closing, their expertise, knowledge of the area and attention to detail were remarkable. We were always kept well informed and came away from our home sale experience impressed by the ease with which it all transpired; courtesy of the extraordinary efforts of Derinda and TeamSold.
Derinda and her support staff are a delight to work with. We were both buyers and sellers, they are very attentive to details and provide you with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Derinda's experience and knowledge of the market, is a big advantage. We have, and will continue, to recommend Derinda and her team.
We can’t say enough positive comments reference our selling experience with Derinda and her team of Tina and Jessica. Our home sold in just 44 days and we couldn’t be more pleased with the effort Derinda and her team contributed to this quick sale. They did a fantastic job of staging our home and were always available for any questions or concerns we had during the entire process. In the short time we lived on the island (5 yrs.) we used Derinda as our Realtor for 3 home transactions. (One buy and two sells)
In our opinion she must be the BEST realtor in Kona. Her longevity in as a Realtor and in the same area for all those years speaks volumes regarding her success.
Whenever we hear of a friend who is thinking of selling we always provide them with Derinda’s name as being the top agent with Clark Reality. We are extremely confident that when recommend Derinda and her team of Tina and Jessica to a friend that they will not be disappointed.
Always remember that Buying or Selling a home can be, and is, a Very Emotional event, so why not go with the BEST to professionally guide you though this experience.

Derinda and her associates went above and beyond all expectations I had with respect to the sale of my property. Her and her team took care of all details of the sale while I was afforded the ease of being able to stay on the mainland. I can't thank them enough, I can't recommend them enough.
If you want to sell property in the Kona area, these are the people to use and trust.
We listed our lot with Derinda on recommendations from friends and of her exceptional reputation within the Community of Kona. Her professionalism and experience brought a closing within less than a month from listing with her. I cannot find enough words of praise and gratitude for her in bringing a buyer quickly and closing the sale without any delays at all.
Derinda is very professional and at the same time is extremely personable. She and her team did a wonderful job of staging and photographing our home. We received four offers our first day due to her expertise and sold for over asking price. What more could a customer ask for.
Our family of four visited Maui and Big Islands spanning the end of 2017 and the first few days of 2018, falling in love with beautiful Hawaii. We asked ourselves if we should purchase a vacation home or perhaps a future retirement home here. We met Chelsea and Derinda by accident. Chelsea was able to find us several homes that met our requirements and showed us around the Kona area. We identified a target but unfortunately another offer came in while we were touring the house. We did not get our dream house but had such a good experience with Chelsea and team that we told ourselves if we are going to buy any property in Kona, we will sure to have them represent us!
Derinda is busy for a reason. She encouraged us to list our home at our best price, then narrowed down and focused on the best potential buyer. Our home sold at full price with a 6 week closing. Derinda also has a good assistant.
Derinda listens to all concerns and since she's been in this business a long time, she's knowledgeable about all aspects of either selling or buying. We were selling and when an issue came up at the last minute, she was on top of it and got it resolved very quickly to everyone's satisfaction
We had a very positive experience selling our house through Derinda Thatcher and her excellent team. They managed much of the paperwork or helped us navigate through it. She arranged for excellent professionals to stage our house and to photograph it to maximum advantage. The result was sale in just a few days. And, through multiple bids, we realized a significantly higher price than it had been listed for. This was largely due to Derindas efforts and expertise. All in all, a very satisfying experience.
I have known Derinda for several years. I have high respect for her. I know her experience follows her.. She has received many rewards for her experience & sales. Her reputation in Kona is very high. These are a few of the reasons why I chose Derinda to sell my house. If I had to do it over, I would choose Derinda.
Have worked with Derinda since 2013. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and will always give you a straight and honest answer to any question you have. I most highly recommend her. If I need an agent in the future, she would certainly be the one I would call.
Really felt like she was looking out for our best interest through our home search. I could tell she was trying to match us with the right home. Really made us feel at ease with the process. We liked her from the start and was very responsive through it all . A real pro.
Derinda was fantastic to work with after having a negative experience with a different realtor. She understood my special circumstances and made sure all of my needs were met. It couldn't have been a more graceful process selling my home for top dollar in only 4 days.
Derinda is every thing a buyer and/or seller needs in the real estate market.
She is sensitive, sensible, and professional. Derinda sold me my first house then 17 years later I requested that she list the same house (in a very uncomfortable situation). The sale was completed due to Derinda's ability to work with all parties. I am ever grateful.
Derinda has been my real estate agent for 18 years. I would not do anything without her advise and counsel. She has been my champion and anybody that "lands" her as their agent can feel comfortable she will do the same for you! My house was on the market a little over one month and Derinda was extremely helpful with assistance in showing, making sure my dog was always cared after during the showings. She truly lent the personal touch, even while she was traveling. Thank you Derinda
Derinda is fantastic to work with. She has been our agent through several transactions, both buying and selling.
In our most recent project, Derinda was immediately challenged with helping us to refresh the property. She provided guidance and worked with our contractor throughout the process. Derinda kept us informed about potential buyers and ultimately negotiated a deal that was just what we wanted.
We have been very fortunate to work with Derinda. Her personal service was instrumental in completing this transaction. We recommend her without reservation to anyone considering a real estate transaction in Kona.
Derinda did an outstanding job in marketing and selling our home. Her staging and photography made our home stand out above all others in our price range. This is the reason our house sold in four days at full price.
Her knowledge of the area, real estate laws and boundary issues were reassuring. We can, without reservation, recommend Derinda Thatcher if you're looking for a home in the Kona area.
Derinda, did an excellent and professional job.
She is very knowledgeable of the area and market values, and assisted with all situations that came up during sales negotiation.
I highly recommend Derinda, for all your Real Estate needs.
Over the years I operated as a Real Estate Brokers in Hawaii, Washington & California. It has been so many years that I wouldn't have dared trying to sell our own Home because so much has changed. I also owned & managed a mortgage company in Hawaii. I'm giving you my background to add credibility to my review of Derinda. Derinda was the listing Broker for our recent sale in the Keauhou Mauka area of Kona.
Derinda was very helpful in preparing our house for the market including providing a "no cost" interior designer to make suggestions on what to do to make the house more presentable. Next she hired a first class photograper to take pictures of the house both during daylight and at dusk. The house looked so good we were almost reluctant to sell it. The day the listing came out, Derinda arranged an open house for all of Kona's MLS members. The open house was very successful. t concluded at 12:30PM on a Thursday and we had ourr first showing at 1:10 PM. That couple wound up buyng the house at full price and we received a back up offer two days later a little bit higher!
It's a little bit scary selling a house in these "sue happy" days. Derinda was always there to give us guidance throughout the escrow period which was very re-assuring. The closing took place without a serious hitch. We could not have done it without her "positive attitude" guidance. We were extremely pleased with the jot she did. We recommend her without reservations.
Derinda is by far the best Real Estate agent I have ever worked with. She went above and beyond in every way! Not only did she help me find the perfect home, she gave me excellent advice concerning financing my home.
After understanding our needs and expectations for property on Big Island, Derinda showed us a wide variety of locations that really helped us make an informed decision. She wanted us to experience the feel and natural beauty of each place. She was prompt picking us up every morning and had printouts of every property with all pertinent information. Her understanding of the island and Hawaiian culture is fantastic. When we decided she was efficient, thorough and worked very hard getting us the best price.
Derinda is extremely professional, knowledgeable and experienced and sold my house in less than a week. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to list their home for sale.
Derinda is the BEST realtor we have ever been associated with. She treats you as if you are her only clients, which is not the case. Derinda has dozens of clients which are buyers and sellers that she manages to please and represent with total professionalism .
You will not find a better agent on the Big Island of Hawaii. From the beginning, Derinda provided expert advice, pricing strategy, professional photography and home staging. She managed the entire process with ease relieving any anxiety we had. We sold in only 9 days with multiple offers, accepting one well above our asking price! It should be noted that much of this occurred while she was on a two week camping 'vacation' in the Colorado mountains. That is truly going above and beyond. We give Derinda and her team the highest marks. Look no further...she's the best.
Derinda was responsive, professional, creative and thorough throughout the whole selling process of the property. We were off Island and she keep in constant contact to make sure we got the best market price. We completed the process without a hitch and would HIGHLY recommend her selling a Kona property. Thank you Derinda for all your help.
Derinda Thatcher did an outstanding job as our real estate agent. As out-of-state owners, we relied on Derinda to handle the preparation and sale of our Kona Condo in our absence. She coordinated and scheduled all of the needed repair work, inspections, cleaning, staging, listing and showing of the property. Derinda has a network of local service providers that did an excellent job at reasonable prices and in a timely manner, thereby keeping our expenses low. She was very attentive to detail and responded to all issues to get us through the process as quickly as possible. Our property sold within the first week of listing for more than our initial asking price. Working with Derinda is a very productive and positive experience!
Derinda is an excellent communicator and planner and executor. She is very knowledgeable about not only the local market but markets elsewhere.
We enjoyed working with Derinda as the listing agent for our home. She was always on time for scheduled appointments and staged our home beautifully.
Derinda always went the "extra mile" to facilitate the sale of our home in Kona.
We highly recommend Derinda to be your Real Estate Agent. Our communication via email and texting was very timely and certainly mitigated any anxious moments in the sale of our home.
Thank you for a job well done Derinda.
Derinda is one of the most amazing realtor that I know. She is professional, communicates well, organized, knowledgeable, and reassuring. There are so many positive reasons as to why she has consistently been one of the best realtor in Hawaii!
We have purchased a condo and bought and sold 2 lots in Kona with Derinda's help. She was patient, insightful, and organized. We have continued to use her unparelled expertise because she is a joy to work with. No question, one of the best.
Derinda was very helpful in ultimately helping me buying two condos on the Big Island. I say ultimately because I actually backed out of buying an initial property (long story). She was very understanding, supportive and professional. Once I was on the mainland and circumstances changed, I contacted Derinda regarding another property I was interested in purchasing directly from the seller. She gave me good advice regarding dealing with the seller, however; it was Derinda that found a similar condo at a better price, thus saving me considerable money. I purchased a second condo in the same complex a few months later and she once again did a great job of handling the transaction. I highly recommend Derinda Thatcher. She is an outstanding Real Estate Professional!
Our realtor, Derinda Thatcher is bright, knowledgeable and very responsive. She helped sell our house in Holualoa and later locate and purchase our current home in Kona. Derinda is very experienced on the west side of the Big Island and particularly in the Kona area. I don't think we have ever caught her without an answer to any of our questions, or without a smile on her face. We would recommend, in fact encourage anyone looking for a responsible and honest real estate agent to call Derinda.
Mark and Nannette Wormley
It was truly a pleasure working with Derinda in the purchase of our first property on the Big Island. She has a ton of experience that she brings with her into every phase of the home buying process, including local area knowledge, evaluating homes, reviewing comps, negotiating and escrow. We Highly Recommend Derinda Thatcher as your next Big Island Realtor, you won't be disappointed!
Derinda worked closely and well with us when we bought a residence in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 2004. She was as good or better in all sales skills than any realtor we have had in prior years. As a sales manager for thirty years with the Josten's Corporation I would not hesitate to hire her in any sales-service situation.....she is extremely talented, always is current with knowledge of the market, and is a wonderful and enjoyable person. Both my wife, Sharon, and I give Derinda the highest marks possible, and wish her well.
Derinda has helped us purchase 2 homes and sell 1 here on the Big Island. She is very experienced and professional. I would not hesitate to turn to her in the future. She will research every facet to advise you in your purchase or sale, and will work with you all the way through the process, always just a phone call, text or email away. She will hold your hand and make sure every question is answered, she will market your place like it is the only listing she has, and she will be tireless in getting the job done. We couldn't be happier with an agent.
Derinda was very knowledgeable about the area, and arranged for us to visit a number of possible properties in a short period of time. She also connected us with a local lender and expedited process of getting a loan. Our closing went very smoothly. We were very pleased with the process.
Derinda is everything you could possibly want in a real estate agent for the Big Island. Honest, hard working and always had our best interest in mind. If she did not have an expertise we needed, she found someone who did.
We wanted a specific location and made a full price offer on the property. We were totally surprised when the seller decided NOT to sell. Derinda knew our desires and spoke to other property owners in the area who were thinking of selling but had not listed the property. Voila! She found a property that was better suited to our needs!
Derinda is well connected and got our banker (who incidentally got us such a fantastic rate that we ended up refinancing our mainland home too saving us money and made our Hawaii purchase so much more affordable. Escrow went smoothly and our Hawaii dream home was a reality.
If you're looking for a Big Island real estate agent that you can trust, Derinda Thatcher is your agent. Honest, hard working, and tenacious to make your deal happen. Yes we are very happy customers and we promise that you will not be disappointed in choosing Derinda to represent you!
