mililani: Mililani Town Homes| Mililani Mauka Homes| Growing Up with the Mililani Community - 03/24/10 06:26 AM

Mililani is a Master Planned Community that started building on June 3, 1968 with 112 homes offered for sale by Castle & Cooke. 
My parents bought their newly constructed home in Mililani Town in 1971 and it was completed in the summer of that year. It was the summer before I entered my first year of high school and I had my last slumber party with my intermediate school girlfriends (from my old neighborhood district) in our new home.
Rich red soil covered the Mililani Community and across the plain we saw pineapple and sugar cane fields … (21 comments)

mililani: Mililani Real Estate and Housing Market - Sales Numbers Climbing! - 04/26/09 12:16 PM
In 1971 my family moved to Mililani and it was in the beginning stages of a 40 year Master Planned Community development of single family homes, condos and townhouses with the first homes built in 1968. 
My children went through their school years in Mililani (they're adults now) and my mom still lives in the same house bought in 1971.
I remember when....
Miililani is centrally located to all military bases on the island and 5-10 minutes from Schofield Barracks and Wheeler Army Airfield, 20-25 minutes to Hickam AFB, Pearl Harbor Navy Base and over the H-3 to Kaneohe Marine Corp Air … (9 comments)

mililani: What You Didn't Know about the HAWAIIAN ISLANDS - 07/13/08 04:12 PM
Dedicated to Bob Stewart
(who is attending the Hawaii Association of Realtors®  2008 Pacific Rim Conference & Expo on the Island of Hawaii on September 18 & 19th, 2008 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village )
Yes, Hawaii is a State that was admitted into the Union on August 21, 1959 and making it the 50th State. Now, for those that have never even stepped foot in Hawaii.... let's clear up a few things.
First of all, it's widespread near and far that Hawaii is an island paradise. Right? Full of trade winds blowing through your hair and beautiful balmy sunny skies above. We have beautiful beaches and lush green valleys and wonderful hiking … (26 comments)

mililani: Mililani Recreation Centers and Fun for All Ages! - 07/01/08 07:21 AM

Mililani Town was voted the All America City in 1986 and it is the only community in Hawaii to ever receive this distinction.
My parents bought their new home in Mililani in 1971 and I was just starting high school. To this day my mom still lives in the same house and my son and daughter grew up in that same house too. From Kindergarten to High School the Mililani Community and Schools served us well. My children just came back home within the past two years and help my mom (who just turned 80 in January of this year) … (19 comments)

mililani: Somewhere Over the "Mililani Rainbow" - 05/03/08 06:21 AM

Sharon Simms came to Hawaii in January for the CRS Sellabration at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and she and her daughter also got to do a little sightseeing.
Along the way to the North Shore they stopped by Mililani Town and noticed (actually she was in awe) of the rainbows around and above the Mililani area.
A slight drizzle coming from the Koolau Mountains will give an array of colors for many wonderful rainbow shows throughout the year over Mililani, Waipio Gentry, Schofield Barracks, Wahiawa and Wheeler Army Air Field.
Of course rainbows are rampant all over Oahu...but these wonderful shows are right in our neighborhood. … (19 comments)

 My mom turned 80 years old in January of this year. She's still spunky and works at Oahu Country Club 4 days a week, goes golfing every week and .....VEGAS twice a year.

We remodeled the Master a year ago and with our busy lives we finally were able to get around to it
Prepping for painting, new screens and ....I'm pooped. My son and daughter will be working on it this … (39 comments)

mililani: Picture Perfect Morning - 04/15/08 02:27 PM
April 14, 2008. Monday morning and on my way to the office in Mililani.
I saw beautiful cloud formations on this beautiful spring morning and after many days of vog from the Big Island (Island of Hawaii) volcano it was clearing up.
I chased the sun down Mililani side streets until I found a perfect shot of morning sunlight glowing around a large palm tree high above the rooftop of a home.
I was so pleased when I saw the result.
I caught another view with a little more blue to the sky but same concept and zoomed out a little.
I can't decide which one is nicer … (53 comments)

mililani: My Waipio Gentry Hawaii "Home": The Price We Pay to Live in Paradise - 07/07/07 08:09 AM
Ahhhhh. The price we pay to live in "Paradise". How about a tour through our little townhouse and fenced in little courtyard? Hawaii is truly a scenic splendor of crystal clear blue waters, lush green mountains and valleys with gorgeous botanical scents. If you have time to view the tours then....let's begin!
Before we moved into our Waipio Gentry townhouse in early 2005 we went on a short "vacation" in Laie.    (Click on the button for the fishing vacation tour!)
Our little piece of paradise is in our back yard (left)and I have an abundance of greenery from palms to orchids to bromeliads and roses. If you … (54 comments)

By: Celeste "Sally" Cheeseman, Century 21 Liberty Homes, Mililani, HI  96789
There seems to be a story for every piece of land in Hawaii so let's start with Kaena Point (picture left taken from Sharks Cove) on the island of Oahu. Travel to Kaena Point from the North Shore and past Mokuleia; but alas! There is no thorough fare from this point to the other side except for a small pathway which can only be crossed by foot. (Unless you want to take a chance and fall of the cliff -this pathway is the only way around) The other … (40 comments)

Are you really satisfied with the office and location that YOU chose to conduct your real estate or related industry business?

mililani: DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR ME! - 05/14/07 04:53 AM
I was called by a news reporter this morning and immediately I said no! I do not want to answer questions! 
He said he got my name off Active Rain (and calling all the way to Hawaii mind you).  At least he wasn't one of those pushy obnoxious types.  He said he understood and we hung up. 
I am one to be cautious of what I say on AR due to being in the public eye. Now even more so with the 60 minutes piece that I did not even watch! But I did read the newpiece here: 60 Minutes and I do have my opinions and … (35 comments)
