I don't believe you could find a better realtor then Fran on the island of Kauai! Her specialty is the Poipu area and that is where we bought but I don't doubt she could represent a buyer who is looking anywhere on the island and would have great success.
My wife and I met Fran at an open house in Feb. 2018. We expressed some interest in looking at properties and over the next week+ we looked at some wonderful properties, mostly condos, in the Poipu area. We let Fran know we would need to se ... [Read More]
Fran helped me sell my home recently and did a fabulous job. As a first time seller I knew very little about the selling process. Fran did a great job educations us around the various nitty-gritties and was also extremely patient in answering all my questions. Fran's knowledge and experience around homes, the local housing market, and the various stages of home buying was impressive and helped make the process as painless as possible. Great experience!!!
Fran is professional, thorough, available and gets it done. She is easy to deal with, always responds quickly and has excellent knowledge of the Kauai real estate market.
Fran is one of the best realtors on the island. Her knowledge of Kauai’s individualized markets is why we used her for the sale of our home. She is highly organized, a great negotiator, very responsive, and understood our families goals for the sale of our home. I’ve been in real estate for 20 years as a small developer, and wouldn’t have just chosen just anyone to sell our own home we built. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent to buy or sell a home on Kauai.
I flew in from a neighbor island with interest in the south shore of Kauai and contacted Fran through Zillow. She was very professional, she really listened and understood my taste and price point. Fran assessed what I wanted and spent the day showing me some great properties. I felt it was a very productive day.
When my sister and brother in law needed to move into long term care, their home had to go up for sale. As their trustee, I was dreading the whole thing and did not know how I was going to accomplish it, since I live on the mainland and have a high pressure job that does not permit a lot of extra time off. Well, with Fran's help this ended up to be no problem at all. She had a buyer for me within three days, she helped me find sources for everything that needed done to prepare for sale, and e ...

Fran helped us sell our house on Kauai last year and in fact also helped us find and purchase the home five years prior. This was a second home for us that we were not able to visit often enough to justify keeping it. We appreciate that she was not aggressive in persuading us to sell but very responsive in answering our questions and helping us set a sales price. Once our decision was made, she quickly helped set up the sale getting the house listed and into the agents' caravan almost immedia ... [Read More]
Fran McDonald has all of the 5 star qualities listed above, but perhaps just as important is her integrity and honesty, as well as her attention to our needs and wishes, patience, perseverance, and thoughtfulness. Fran started communicating with us even before we arrived back on Kauai. Once we arrived, she welcomed us and worked closely with us to find our home, never trying to sell us the most expensive house in our budget range. She was was very knowledgeable and persevered through challenges ... [Read More]
Fran is very professional and always made herself available to help in any way she could to sell my condo! She went above and beyond time frame to get me home sold within that I needed. Fran also was the one who found my home for me several years ago. I highly recommend Fran and look forward to working with her again when I am ready to purchase another home.

Fran was professional in every aspect of the process of selling my home.
She did not sugar coat any thing when I asked her about pricing the home and did not set expectations too high.
She always gave me a straight answer even if she knew I would not like it.
She kept me informed every step of the way through escrow and the sales process.
She did not try to sell me. Other agents gave me a wrong picture of the area's sales figures and property values because they wanted my bu ... [Read More]
When my husband and I were ready to buy our first home, we contacted Fran McDonald. She corresponded with us right away and she started finding homes for us to see. She was always available for any questions. Her enthusiasm and knowledge made our first home buying experience very fun and smooth! By working with Fran, within a few weeks, we found a great home and our offer was accepted. Fran helped us through the whole process. If we buy more properties in the future, we will definitely work with ... [Read More]
Fran helped us purchase our first home and was wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and always there when you her. A thorough and caring real estate agent and person.
Fran helped us sell our house a couple of years ago. She is energetic and knowledgeable, but she's never pushy.She went WAY beyond the call of duty, offering to tidy up our house before a surprise viewing while we were at work, sacrificing her own turkey sandwich to lure our dog to the backyard before another viewing, making excellent suggestions about what we should do to fix up the house before putting it on the market and, even more important, what we shouldn't do. After we sold our house (fo ... [Read More]
Fran was an exceptional asset in the purchase of our home. Our only option was the VA loan and she went the extra mile again and again to run the guantlet of the loan and VA process. When the VA denied us two times, she did the research, found all the parties involved and got the process unclogged even when everyone had given up. Looking at my beautiful home now, i am extremely thankful..
In our initial research and she was highly recommended by friends and coworkers.
