kapolei: Don't take a signed contract for granted - 04/06/11 10:06 PM
So I had a contract signed, great price for my seller and a quick close....Great Job right?  Not really!!!  This was in January and a couple days after opening escrow a water heater leaked (property was vacant) on the 2 units directly below my sellers.  Now what to do?  File an insurance claim, send in paperwork, wait, get a few quotes from contractors, wait, wait, check with condo association make sure things are moving forward, wait, wait and more waiting, uncooperative owners in units that were damaged....so I think you get the point.  
We have a signed contract but because of … (1 comments)

kapolei: Yard Signs 2 - 02/25/11 04:45 AM
Coming soon to a home near you....

I just wanted to thank all of you who put your input into my question about yard signs.  I decided to go short and sweet and to the point, reflective also so it can be seen at night.  
Home owners: Are you looking to sell in Hawaii?  I would be happy to give you a free evaluation of your homes value.
Mahalo and Aloha from Hawaii!!

kapolei: Yard Signs.... - 02/21/11 05:25 PM
So I need to buy some new for sale signs and for some reason or another I can't decide on which type to get...it seems like such an easy thing to do but after doing a bit of research and speaking with a few companies one would never believe the amount of bells and whistles that go along with a simple for sale sign.   Full color, 4 colors, laminated, not laminated, reflective, non reflective....and that is just the sign itself, the stand is a whole nother thing to decide on. 
The ones that I have been using are just the standard … (6 comments)

There is a rumor of a very bad computer virus that will be going around for April fools, so make sure that you don't become a victim.  Here is the article:
 By the Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - The Conficker worm, a nasty computer infection that has poisoned millions of PCs, will start ramping up its efforts tomorrow to use those machines for cybercrimes. It's unclear whether everyday PC users will even notice, but this is as good an excuse as any to make sure your computer is clean.
There are some easy ways to figure out whether a computer … (4 comments)

kapolei: UP and coming... - 03/11/09 10:23 PM
So the economy is pretty BAD right now, most people say it hasn't been this bad since the great depression.  So what should we do...pack up our things and feel sorry for ourselves?  NO THANKS! 
I consider myself pretty knowledgeable even though I am young, not a mogul yet but on my way (one day).  So I like to pick the brains of other successful agents and business people on occasion.  Although there is a wide range of things that they share with me, there is one thing that most have in common.  "You sure picked a tough time to … (1 comments)

kapolei: Buyers Beware... - 03/03/09 07:31 PM
I still do not understand why there are so many buyers that are still on the fence and not taking the plunge into the market.  With home prices having dropped substantially and interest rates as low as they are, homes are on SALE.  The economy of course is not in very good shape, but people still need a roof over their head right?  If you don't own a home you are going to rent somewhere...why pay rent to someone when you could purchase a home and pay the same amount (or very close to it) monthly.  I have spoken to a … (3 comments)

kapolei: Note to Sellers - 12/01/08 10:52 PM
Here is an entry to people who are considering selling or are selling their property now...Don't get discouraged with what you see on TV, newspapers or what you have heard.  It is true that the majority of properties are sitting on the market for months, but there are others that are selling in a much shorter time. 
The main objective is to get your property sold in the least amount of time, right?  This way you don't have to make mortgage payments on your house while it sits vacant and the listing gets cold.  With my proven track record I can … (1 comments)
