, Owner (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 several clients to facilitate senior and challenging hiring needs, demanding superior negotiation skills.
Kristian has studied and followed Oahu's real estate market for more than a decade and in 2008 he invested in his first oceanfront condo in Diamond Head. He has a wealth of knowledge on the local market and excels at the negotiation table, navigating even the most complex and challenging situations with a calm and steady hand.
Kristian had a vision to create a different kind of real estate firm, utilizing the Internet to offer more insight to Oahu's real estate. He had an idea to offer content in a format digestible for the beginner, yet educational for the savvy investor. The thoughts lead to the creation of Honolulu HI 5.
Kristian lives by Diamond Head with his family and when he isn’t working you will often find him walking his Newfoundland dog by Kapiolani Park or going for a swim at Kaimana Beach. He is also the owner of Hawaii Job Engine - an online job board free to the local community.

"....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.

".…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
“....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.
Marietta B. - Chino Hills, CA
“.. 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. He was able to help us quickly focus on finding the right property and negotiate the best terms with our interest in mind. 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 !

"...out of state for the entire process."
We found George by way of an internet inquiry. We couldn't have gotten a better agent than George Krischke if we would have hand-selected him. We were out of state for the entire process. George just handled things.
