Information and Updates on the Maui real estate market, the Kapalua resort, and events island wide.



Back in March, 406 Monarch, a bank owned property, was listed for sale at $1,700,000.  It was snapped up the first day on the market, and closed today at the asking price, "As Is", cash closing, with no seller's disclosures. Today, the property was re-listed at $2,300,000 (MLS 337416).  Asking pr...
I'm writing this post having just received a marketing email from offering a free listing service. I am wondering if anyone on AR has tried it, and if you have any feedback?  With continual advances in technology and the proliferation of marketing websites on the internet...
Whenever there is an event in the Kapalua Resort, I immediately run to my blog to let my friends and readers know about it.  This Friday, May 1st, the Kapalua Resort will celebrate May Day.  While people around the world celebrate the beginning of Spring, May Day is truly a special day in Hawaii....
I've always enjoyed Maui's artists and our local galleries.  I hear that we have one of the most sophisticated art markets in the country, and you'll find art galleries in every town across the island.  While there are many wonderful ways to spend a day in Kapalua, my ideal day off is to meander ...
The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay are on schedule to open May 31, 2009.  I had the opportunity to tour the Kapalua Resort's newest luxury condominium residences with clients just this last week.  It's exciting to see the progress of the Residences, as the grounds begin to take sha...

Join your community members and volunteers from local organizations at Honolua Bay at 8:00 am for a stewardship event to celebrate Earth Day.  Honolua Bay is located just north of the Kapalua Resort, and is one of Maui's most treasured natural resources.  The Bay is home to fantastic coral reefs ...
Last night, a colleague leaned over my desk and asked me in a confiding tone "How are you staying motivated?"  I hadn't really thought about it until that point, but I realized something:  even though our market has slowed, I feel like I am busier than ever!  I've been getting to work earlier, st...
Aloha, I've just posted my latest Kapalua Resort Newsletter and Market Update.  Looking back at the MLS activity for the Kapalua Resort in the month of March, the Kapalua Resort Market: There were 12 new listings, ranging from a low of $650,000 for a two-bedroom Golf Villa one-bedroom to a high o...
I've been working with Kapalua Realty since 2000, and this is quite an unusual development in the Kapalua Resort market, which has seen very few foreclosures, and even fewer auctions.   Ridge Villa 2512, a one bedroom, two bath single level villa, has been listed at $495,000 in the MLS as an open...
