, Founder (RA)
Originally from Denmark, Kristian has spent his entire adult life overseas. His career took off in the financial market in London, followed by 10 years in Tokyo, where he established and ran a leading executive search firm. He was trusted by his clients to handle their senior, and most challenging, hiring needs, demanded superior negotiating skills.
For more than a decade he's studied and followed Oahu's real estate market, investing in his first property, a Diamond Head oceanfront condo, in 2008. His wealth of knowledge about the local market is one of the keys to his success at the negotiation table, navigating even the most complex and challenging situations with a calm, steady hand.
Kristian had a vision to create a different kind of real estate firm, utilizing the Internet to offer a deeper insight into Oahu's real estate. His idea was to provide content that was digestible for the beginner, yet still beneficial for the savvy investor. Those principles lead to the creation of Honolulu HI 5.
He lives in Kahala with his family and, when he isn’t working, you'll often find him walking his Newfoundland dog near Diamond Head Lookout or going for a swim at Kaimana Beach.

Testimonials"....genuinely cared about my family and I...."
Honolulu HI5 (Realtor Michelle Brown Johnson) was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! She made the process of buying and selling our home such a wonderful experience! From the very beginning -- she treated us like family and we immediately felt so comfortable with her! Although home buying and selling can be an extremely stressful time -- Michelle made us feel at ease throughout the entire process! If unforeseen bumps arose (which, I'm sure did -- but I can't seem to remember any!), she would smooth them out immediately! Michelle always kept the lines of communication open with us - - letting us know what we can expect and when we can expect it. She was true to her word and did everything she said she would -- and more!! Aside from being a top notch realtor -- who comes with many years of experience AND is well versed in the Hawaii housing market -- Michelle is also very caring, compassionate and truly valued us as people. She genuinely cared about my family and I -- both personally AND in our wants/needs in buying and selling our home. It was such a pleasure to work with her and I would HIGHLY recommend her to all my family, friends, and even strangers off the street, LOL!! She really is THAT GREAT of a realtor and as a person.

"....essential to our success
George Krischke cannot be praised enough for helping us find our dream home in Waikiki. His expertise in the Hawaii real estate market was essential to our success in this endeavor. Throughout escrow, George was there for us on our behalf, steering us through a number of unexpected obstacles as we approached closing. His consummate professionalism, patience and dedication to his clients saw us through what seemed like some stormy seas to us at the time. Today we find ourselves at home in our 33rd floor condominium, awestruck by the views. Thank you George for your exemplary professional service!

"....a good negotiator
Kristian helped me purchase a condo in Kakaako this year. He is an expert on this particular aspect of the Honolulu real estate market and is also a good negotiator. He had patience with me through some offers that didn't make it into escrow, and ultimately helped me settle on a unit I purchased sight unseen while traveling for work on the mainland (he made a video tour of the place for me). We worked together for several months this year and he provided excellent service. My interests were protected through a tricky transaction, and he was very responsive to questions/concerns, even when I was in a different time zone. I would recommend him to anyone interested in jumping in to the competitive market for condos in Kakaako.

"....stress less experience
I give Michelle 5 stars, she made our experience in finding and purchasing our home a wonderful and stress less experience. I'm a raving fan and will refer everyone I know who wants to purchase or sell a home. Mahalo May.

"....understands this market very well
George did a great job identifying condos that met the criteria I mentioned to him. After picking the condo I was interested in, George helped me at every step of the purchase and was always extremely responsive. Since George has been a realtor for many years in Honolulu, he understands this market very well. I would definitely work with George again.
Michel - Honolulu, HI
"....very professional & knowledgeable
Jim & I have worked with George Krischke, Honolulu HI5, for several years, purchasing & selling a high end condo. He is very professional & knowledgeable with the Hawaii real estate market. He would be the first one we would call if we planned on buying or selling any of our properties. We highly recommend him & Honolulu HI5.

"....shows how dedicated and professional
My wife and I just purchased a condo in Waikiki and George Krischke of Honolulu Hi 5 was our Real Estate broker. George is a very professional, knowledgeable agent and was there for us every step of the way. We are extremely satisfied with how we were treated and would recommend George to friends and family. George is still in contact with us today even though it has been nearly a month since closing date. This shows how dedicated and professional George is with his clients.

"....sounds advise was invaluable
We recently purchased a condo in Honolulu and had the good fortune to work with Kristian Nielsen.
He us an outstanding realtor, professional, competent, and conscientious, with a broad knowledge of the real estate market. He always responded promptly to any questions we had, and his sound advise was invaluable in addressing any difficulties that arose as well as negotiating the contract. Of all the realtors we have worked with over the years, we can say, without hesitation, that Kristian is by far the best; and we would recommend him highly to anyone seeking to sell or purchase property in Honolulu.
Michael and Peggy M. - NY
"....responsive, hoest and hard working
We have bought and sold many homes, including 3 now in Hawaii, and worked with many Realtors. George is one of the most responsive, honest, and hard working Realtors we have had the pleasure of working with. George is a credit to the real estate profession and can be depended on to get the job done, and done right. George worked extremely hard to ensure we got the property and the deal we wanted, and because of his hard work and due diligence, we actually closed early.
"....completed smoothly and without issue
George Krischke is a true professional. My husband is a licensed NV real estate agent, and George worked with him to ensure that the transaction was completed smoothly and without issue. This is the second time we have worked with George, and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our family, friends and colleagues.
Barb Falvey - Las Vegas, NV
"....patiently waited for us to make the rigth choice
We were very lucky to have Mr. Kristian Nielsen of Honolulu Hi5 as our realtor. By chance we met him as he was working as the selling agent for a unit in the Waipuna. Although we were not able to buy that unit, Mr. Nielsen offered to help us find a unit that was comparable or even better. After showing us many different places, he patiently waited for us to make the right choice. We even cancelled two different offers before we found the ideal home for us at the Harbor Court. We used the loan agent, home inspector, and moving service that Mr. Nielsen recommended to us. All turned out to be honest and hard working professional. If you are looking to buy or sell, please give Mr. Nielsen a chance to serve you. He is by far the best agent we have had, taking into account the multiple relocations we have endured due to military life.
Willow Mai - Honolulu, HI
"....smile and heart full of Aloha
We met George at an open house and was immediately impressed with his knowledge of the real estate market and Waikiki vacation rentals. He listened to our parameters and within a day had a list of units for us to view and we made an offer that same day. He is a conciencious professional who will do all that he can to bring your transaction to a successful close. He does all this with a smile and heart full of Aloha!
"....professional, friendly, get-it-done attitude
George Krischke went far beyond my expectations in selling my home and worked tirelessly to do anything and everything that was needed. He was the seller's broker when I bought the house 11 years before and was the first and only realtor I thought to call when it came time for me sell. I can't say enough for the professional, friendly, get-it-done attitude George brought to the difficult game of real estate sales. If you choose George to sell your home or help you buy, you will be very happy with the results. Thanks much George!
Gwen Purdy - Honolulu, HI
"....a man of integrity and his goal was to get me exactly what I wanted
I want to share my experience with Kristian Nielsen of Honolulu HI 5 Realty. I called from the mainland and Kristian answered the phone personally, no machine, no message, no waiting. I arranged to fly to Oahu and met with him. He showed me a few properties to give me options and educate me on the market. I went with a penthouse in Kakaako's Ward Village, a very prestigious new condo development area in Honolulu. Kristian was very creative in thinking of options in the build out as it is a project not net started. Then he proceeded to secure me a rental in a luxury condo in Waikiki based on his referral, which saved me a lot of qualifying annoyance. In the entire process, Kristian took great effort to educate me so that when I made decisions, I had all the information I needed. It was obvious, Kristian is a man of integrity and his goal was to get me exactly what I wanted being armed with all the facts. He is proactive, takes no shortcuts, and makes himself your personal real estate valet and whatever is needed, he handles with great care and graciousness. I plan to buy another condo in the next three years and am so glad I found the best of the best in Kristian Nielsen.
Julia Rose - Honolulu, HI
"....In Honolulu at this time, that doesn't happen too often
When we were looking for an apartment in our building to purchase, we decided to contact Kristian Nielsen. It was a great choice. We were very specific in what we were looking for, and rather than convince to look elsewhere, Kristian agreed to keep his eyes open for a listing that fit our needs. When an apartment came on the market that might be right for us, Kristin let us know right away, and arranged for us to see it before the first open house. That was really valuable because apartments in our building have been selling rapidly. The apartment we saw was not in the greatest condition, and rather than try and "sell us", Kristian was very realistic about what would be required, in time and money, to make it pleasant. When we decided to go ahead and make an offer, Kristian was very savvy. He readily agreed that the asking price was excessive, even though we knew that if the unit stayed on the market someone would surely snatch it up. Kristian sounded out the sellers agent and based on that he suggested what our opening offer should be. He was right on target. In the end, with a minimum of negotiation, we agreed on a purchase price about 7% under the asking price. In Honolulu at this time, that doesn't happen too often! After our purchase closed, Kristian also gave us great advice and several recommendations as to finding a contractor to help us fix things up a bit. We are now living in our new home, and it's pretty fabulous. We're lucky we found Kristian. I am quite certain no other agent could have gotten us in to our new home. I recommend him wholeheartedly. In fact, if we ever decide to sell, he'll be the one I will call.
Akiko & Jeff Tash - Honolulu, HI
"....made a rather difficult process seamless
George Krischke did an amazing job of helping me sell my mom's condo in Hawaii after she passed away. He communicated regularly and walked me through the entire process. He clearly explained what we were doing (and why we had to do it) during each phase of the sale. I live in California and have no knowledge of the Hawaii real estate market. George's knowledge of the local market and real estate law saved me thousands of dollars. George even took the time to go to the attorney's office to pick up paperwork, ensuring escrow closed on time. He made a rather difficult process seamless. If I ever have the need to buy or sell real estate in Hawaii again, Hawaii HI 5 will be my first call. Thank you, George!
Todd Cook - Santa Rosa, CA
"....made me feel like family
Just would like to say the type of Real Estate person Michelle Brown is. She is a terrific person not only in her selling ability but also as a friend that helped me through the entire process of the sale of my home. I felt very comfortable with her and she made me feel like family. Michelle has a positive attitude and I know she will go far and possibly either own or run HawaiiHI5 agency.
I met Michelle when my partner and I were looking for a home on Oahu and she was always there to guide us in the right direction and very prompt on showing up at the real estate we were interested in. The market at that time did not have any homes that really caught our eyes and we seen several that wasn’t worth the price the owners were asking and Michelle was there to let us know about the pros and cons of what we were looking at. So we decided to move from Oahu to the Big Island of Hawaii. This is when I agreed with Michelle to sell my home on Oahu and she did a very great job and I would recommend her to anyone either looking to buy or selling. She really knows what she is doing and she does it well. Like your company name I give a HI5 to Michelle on the selling of my home.
Clayton Souza - Ewa Beach, HI
"....impressed with how well versed you were with the area
Hi Kristian, I want to thank you for helping me become a homeowner again. I've been looking for a property for the past 2 years; I worked with numerous real estate agents, viewed several properties and even made offers on some of them but all those efforts were unsuccessful. One day I was reading an Ad about your firm and decided to give you a call to see if you could assist me with my search. I was so impressed with how well versed you were with the area. In just a matter of a week, I was able to pick a unit that I wanted to purchase. Making a reasonable offer on the property was critical but you did the 'homework' and came up with an offer that worked for both me and the seller. I was very impressed with that because it was in the offer phase that my previous attempts to buy failed. The step by step guidance you provided during the closing process was invaluable, I had very little to worry about because you took care of almost everything. I appreciate the follow-up to make sure things are going well at my new place and the updates on the developments around the area, specifically, the Whole Foods project.
I couldn't ask for a better agent to work with. Mahalo nui!
Cecilia Balinsat Lucas - Honolulu, HI
"....professional, meticulous and a pleasure
During the past two years, George Krischke has helped us both buying and selling. In both instances he was extremely professional, meticulous and a pleasure to work with. He has extensive knowledge of the local market and we were able to get an excellent price both in buying and selling. The transactions were fast and he helped us through every detail with care and expertise. We wouldn't dream of using any other real estate agent in Honolulu.

Kristian, I want to thank you for your professional approach to the sale of our Condo.

We could not have been more satisfied with the service that we received from George Krischke, who helped us locate and buy our beautiful condo. George's knowledge of the Honolulu market combined with his direct and friendly approach, his attention to detail and follow through made the whole experience a very positive one for us. We would highly recommend him!

"....thank you for your patience and dedication
Aloha George, Both sales of our properties were trying and complex and we thank you for your patience and dedication. I'm glad I followed my instincts of following you as my first impressions of your service, calm demure and confidence kept you in mind. We really appreciate your constant updates, patience, prompt attention to pending litigation and long hours spent on these sales.

"....went above and beyond
I recently purchased a condo in Waikiki - I live out of state so that made things even more stressful than usual. Kristian Neilson and his wife Maki were wonderful to work with and they gained my trust very quickly. Kristian was always very responsive to my emails and phone calls and I felt supported throughout the process. Kristian went above and beyond on several occasions - organizing an electrician and other things. I would definitely contact Kristian and Maki in the future if I purchase another property and I definitely recommend Honolulu HI 5 to my family and friends.
Joanne H. - San Francisco, CA
".....no words to describe how helpful, efficient she is
Michele is one of a kind! She was able to sell my house faster than I ever thought! When I was on an extended vacation and didn't expect to close on the house that quick, Michele would take care of all the stuff in my 5 bedroom/4 bath house to the storage so by the time I get back everything was taken care of! I would refer her to all my friends and family! There's no words to describe how helpful, efficient she is. Best of all, she is always available everything I text or call her! She is the best of the best!!!! I could go on and on about Michele.
Ann Huynh - Orlando, FL
"....meticulous follow-ups and updates
I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the energy Kristian brought us every time we met. He has shown us much compassion and kindness as well. It was through his thoughtful and careful attention to details that my family benefited to purchase a condo unit in Waikiki. Kristian is a self motivated and goal oriented individual, who delivers dedicated high-quality service and knowledge with speedy, meticulous follow-ups and updates. He is the realtor who certainly generates enthusiasm in others.
Noriko Narita - Honolulu, HI
"....couldn't be happier
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kristian Nielsen to sell our Waikiki condominium. He was professional, responsive and provided sound counsel on pricing. We interviewed several realtors before deciding who to list with and couldn't have been happier with Kristian as our choice.
Mark M. - Seattle, WA
".…head and shoulders above the competition
George, I want to take a moment to thank you for having dispelled all the "negativeness" that I have experienced in the past with Realtors.
Number one, you listened to what I wanted to accomplish by the sale of my beautiful condo at the Villa on Eaton Square. We then walked the talk, in coming up with pricing goals that would achieve my needs. You kept those concerns foremost, and throughout the showings and resultant sale.
Second, you kept me informed as to the progress in meeting those goals; and never once tried to impose your particular will on my desires for the outcome. You were respectful throughout the actual sale and finalizing process.
Your experience and real estate knowledge was indeed very evident. When other realtors showed the unit, they were quick to acknowledge your expertise and experience, without being asked "that you are the best"! I have bought and sold millions of dollars of real estate during my lifetime; you indeed are "head and shoulders" above the competition.
The result was a very satisfied seller and buyer. You have now earned, deservingly, the title of the Realtor to get the highest price per square foot price at the Villa.
Although we miss our unit at the Villa, we now enjoy the opportunity to move on with our adventure of enjoying life in Palm Springs, California.
We were hesitant to hire you because you were referred to us by a family friend of yours and ours. We are in their debt for having encouraged us to interview, and then hire you to work for us.
Again, Thank you very much,
Robert Herberger - Palm Springs, CA
"....most amazing realtor
Mr. Kristian Nielsen of Honolulu HI 5 is the most amazing realtor with whom we have ever worked. Before we contacted him, we had lost several chances to purchase a condominium, but Kristian acted quickly enough to put us in the bidding for the unit we wanted. Thanks to him; we have found a home we love and we have successfully purchased it. The condo with which we fell in love is Hokua at Ala Moana, which is known for wonderful management services and well-made units. We had really wanted that unit. In fact, we had lost a chance getting another unit at Hokua and we just couldn't back off. We contacted Kristian one evening and exchanged e-mails through the night, and the next morning, he contacted the seller agent to see the unit with our purchase offer in hand. He took several pictures and checked the points that we had asked him to, since we live outside Hawaii and couldn't see the unit so quickly ourselves. After we agreed, he quickly handed the paper to the selling agent to beat any other people who would like to purchase it. Kristian made every effort to satisfy our requests and needs and eventually we closed the deal within a month. Even after that, he continues to help us coordinate projects we are undertaking to refurbish the unit. These projects are still in progress, but we are very confident because we know Kristian and his beautiful and kind wife Maki have our back. Thanks again, Kristian, we are so fortunate to know you as our agent who has such extensive knowledge and kindness, and as our friend.

“....attentive and meticulous
I’m pleased to endorse the professionalism, integrity and expertise of George Krischke of Honolulu HI-5 Realty, who has helped me purchase two homes and sell three over the past 14 years.
With his expert counsel we were able to achieve our desired sales and purchase prices on all five transactions.
Most recently, we put up for sale our home at Koko Villas in Hawaii Kai. Working with George, we reviewed the market conditions, set the price and made minor repairs and improvements to achieve our goal. Honolulu HI-5 Realty marketed the property, which then sold at the first open house for the price we were looking for. George is pleasant to deal with and is attentive and meticulous in his work. He brings great peace of mind to the entire process. I highly recommend him and Honolulu HI-5 Realty.
David R. McNeil - Honolulu, HI
“...patient, good listener, very accommodating
I originally was referred to another agent, but after calling on one of your listed properties – which George showed me, I knew he was the agent I wanted to work with. So, I chose your company because of George. He is an excellent realtor – knowledgeable, patient, good listener, very accommodating – great! I already have referred several friends and associates to George, and will refer others. I highly recommend him.

"....trustworthy, never pushy, meticulous with numbers
I live and own properties in California but I've always wanted a place in Hawaii to call my own. So when the opportunity arose via a 1031 exchange I combed the Internet for such a property. With just a couple of emails with Kristian Nielsen, I instinctively knew I could trust him to look out for my best interest. With just one trip to Hawaii, he helped me find a place in Waikiki and made the whole transaction painless & stress free. I found Kristian very honest and trustworthy, never pushy, meticulous with numbers, and very professional every step of the way. I certainly would not hesitate to use his service when given another chance to buy a second, or maybe even a third property.

“....patient, diligent, timely, & professional.”
George Krischke was always so patient, diligent, timely, & professional. He was able to help us locate the right property and close in record time; 16 days from the first day we met.

George helped us fulfill one of our dreams of owning ocean front property in Hawaii overlooking the most beautiful sunset.

“What a luck that I discovered him in the internet!
About the adventure to buy an apartment in Honolulu. My whole life I am German – it is important when you are old. USA I visited the first time (Chicago) at the age of 70. Afterwards Honolulu in memory of Jack Lord – Hawaii-5-0 (we liked to watch at TV in Germany). Back to Germany I decided to buy an apartment in Honolulu. But how to do? I did know not anybody in the USA. At first I bought a laptop and the connection to internet. With a lot of difficulties I learned to use it. And – searching for an agent to buy an apartment – I discovered George ! His picture looked as if you may trust him, his last name looked as if he is German, and there was written that he speaks German and English ! I wrote a letter in German, telling him all my problems and asking all questions which were important for me to buy an apartment in Honolulu. I was really astonished and very lucky that he called back very soon. Our conversation was interesting and after it I knew, that I could trust him. At the beginning of December 2007 we had our first meeting. George offered me a lot of possibilities and he never pressed me to take this or this apartment ! At the end of December I decided. I never was disappointed. And I never was disappointed that I chose George as realtor. He always was helpful and very honest ! He enabled me to understand processing of applications and processorganisation buying an apartment. He was kindly and very, very patiently. What a luck that I discovered him in the internet ! Thank you George!
