real estate: Investing in Real Estate 101 - 02/24/07 04:16 PM
Chances are if you are reading this you have not had much chance to experience the fun and excitement of investing in real estate. Most of the people I know who are avid real estate investors are self taught. Several of my more affluent real estate investor clients were brought up in families that were avid real estate investors and much of their wealth came from those type of investments.
If you are not one of the lucky ones that was born into a family that is real estate savvy, you will need to learn the ropes. You can read all (1 comments)
real estate: Destination Kapalua Maui - Mercedes Golf Championships January - 01/07/07 01:32 PM
Held at the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort in Maui each year, this tournament bring some of golf's biggest names. Unfortunately with Tiger's baby on the way and Michelle Wie preparing for the Sony Open, two of my favorite names are not present. The Mercedes-Benz Golf Championships are the creme de la creme of golf, in a an extraordinary setting. No cameras were allowed during play time so the best I could do was to get the in-laws and my son under the merchandise sign. On the other hand, my son got a big kick out of seeing Vijay Singh shoot one (3 comments)
real estate: Dude! Surf's UP!!! Makapu'u and Sandy Beach, EAST Shore Oahu, Honolulu, Hawaii - 01/07/07 02:37 AM
When I read the paper this morning, there was no mention of impending high surf on the South Shore of Oahu. Not that I was looking for it since winter months are the time for Oahu's North Shore to shine whether it be the Triple Crown of Surfing, or Eddie Aikau Big Wave International Surf Contests. Granted Eddie Aikau's contest takes place when the waves are 20+ feet or more.... but it sure was big for the South Shore today! I grabbed the camera after I dropped my client's off because I have not seen this is some time. 8 - 10 foot waves (13 comments)
real estate: So You Want to Become a Realtor - 01/05/07 05:29 AM
Looking at real estate as an industry and as a profession can be a pretty intimidating thing. Unless your family was involved in investing and bought multiple properties, chances are you hadn't been exposed to much of the how to's of the profession. It took me years of consideration before I finally decided to take the plunge and if I can share with you a few things I've learned along the way, I hope it will help you undertand what it's like to start and how you can be successful. In this land of over 6300 licensee's what you won't hear when (19 comments)
There are two types of property ownership in Hawaii. One, called Leasehold and the other Fee Simple. Both have something to offer and each is incredibly different. Buyers and investors alike are likely, at least initially to consider both types of purchases. All buyers considering real estate purchases in the State of Hawaii should be completely aware of the type of conveyance that is taking place. Fee Simple Ownership is a property that is conveyed with no obligation to the previous owner. You buy the property outright with no strings attached after the sale has recorded under the terms and conditions (7 comments)
On the island of Oahu we have a 122 miles of shoreline around our island. Our average temperature is 85 degrees year round and our biggest insect is a cockroach. My favorite creature in Hawaii is a Gecko and it looks nothing like the Geico gecko. My island is comprised of many different enthnicities and is one of the most remarkable melting pots in the United States. We have some of the best water quality in the world and the cleanest air around due to the tradewinds that keep our island breezes flowing. Just a few fun facts... Waikiki Beach is one of the (9 comments)
real estate: Hawaii After the Quake... - 10/17/06 05:17 AM
For those of you not in Hawaii, I'd like to share some insight to what is happening here in light of the quake. I've heard from some people on the mainland thinking all islands had significant loss and damage. To clarify, our damage was most significantly sustained by the Big Island. There is some road damage, structural damage to business, hotels and homes. There were landslides, but nothing like I've seen in California. There was no tsunami generated... Our people, for the most part, went untouched. We had no fatalities and are very very lucky that the injuries statewide were minimal. Our most (4 comments)
