We’re Here to Guide You Every Step of the Process
At Ho‘okele Title & Escrow we have simplified the process of navigating successful Hawaii real estate closings by introducing innovative technology to an age-old industry, transparency in the escrow process, and setting a new standard of reliability.
What is escrow?
Escrow is at the hub of a wheel that brings all parties together in the transaction. Ho‘okele Title & Escrow is a neutral third party that holds all the money, contracts and, legal documents until the parties are ready to close the transaction. Our team is an essential partner who intermediates this complicated financial transaction, acting as a “clearinghouse” for the receipt, exchange and, distribution of the items needed to transfer or finance real estate.
For a one-time fee, title insurance protects real estate owners and lenders against property loss or damage they might experience because of liens, encumbrances, or defects in the title to the property. Each title insurance policy is subject to specific terms, conditions, and exclusions. Title defects can be serious, time-consuming, and expensive and can even result in loss of ownership. If you have title insurance, your insurer will pay for defending against an attack on title as the insured and will either perfect the title or pay valid claims, all for a one-time charge at closing.

Property Profile Reports
Property profile reports are essential to the title and escrow process. These reports provide a record of full ownership of a specific parcel of land, showing the liens and encumbrances. It is important that a review is conducted so all parties are aware of any limitations to the property prior to the commitment of buying.
With my 20+ years of experience with Maui real estate transactions as a Realtor®, I know what is required for a smooth escrow. From the time of contract acceptance through closing, Hoʻokele Title & Escrow team, Agnes and Quinn were efficient and very responsive to all calls and emails. They value communication, and so do I.
We look forward to assisting you with our solutions.
