Which of the Hawaiian Islands Should I Choose to Retire? Oahu Because..... - 03/27/08 04:18 AM
This is a question I am often asked from those looking to retire here from the mainland. All of the islands have their own unique beauty and pros and cons about them. However, one factor that is driving their decision and has come up more and more lately is access to health care and hospitals. Having just spent this past weekend in Queen's Hospital for the birth of my daughter, I take for granted the time that I do not have to spend in hospitals. However, when you need access to a good hospital and physician, most everybody wants somewhere convenient and someone good. (3 comments)
One "Buck" Richer! - 03/27/08 03:57 AM
Our family just got one "Buck" richer with the birth of our daughter, Margaret Leslie Grace Buck this past weekend. She came in weighing 6 pounds 10 ounces and 19 inches long. Our family is very thankful and we thank God for our wonderful gift. It was nice taking some time off from the Real Estate biz over the weekend.... it is also nice to be home from the hospital too...

What's New in Kailua Town? - 03/17/08 09:27 PM
Last week Thursday, I had the opportunity to get a tour with the Urban Land Institute's Young Leader group with Mitch D'Olier, the President and CEO of Kaneohe Ranch. We started at the Farmer's Market, which is relatively new to Kailua and takes place every Thursday from 5-7:30 PM. It is hosted by the Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation. It's in the parking lot behind Long's Drugs in the heart of Kailua Town. What's great about this & other farmer's markets (such as the one at Kapiolani Community College on Saturdays) is that they do not even have to advertise. The products are so (1 comments)
Useful Tips on Getting Great Exchange Rates for Your Canadian Buyers - 03/17/08 07:56 PM
As a follow up to my previous blog posts, this Canadian buyer movement keeps on rolling... I was quoted again in the Star Bulletin last week. Believe it or not, some are saying the "new Japanese" J I don't think their purchasing power will be anywhere like the Japanese of the late 1980's or early 1990's, However, this trend of them coming here more often and spending more money is definitely on the upswing. The article I was in also caught the eye of an up and coming company called HiFX. They are a company that specializes in offering great exchange (0 comments)
More Canadian Interest in Hawaii Real Estate - 03/03/08 08:42 PM
As a follow up to my last posting, there is still evidence of more Canadians interested in Hawaii. In the Star Bulletin the other day it said that Canadian visitors continued to boost our tourism growing by 27.7% from a year ago! That also helped boost visitor spending to its largest increase in 19 months! Well, they are also interested in our real estate too! I spent last week working with another buyer out of Brittish Columbia. It seems so many of the "snowbirds" are looking to purchase somewhere nice & warm for a stay during the winter... I was also the featured (2 comments)
