We were fortunate to have one of our major newspapers, The Star Bulletin, in Hawaii contact us a month or so ago for a story about local Hawaii Real Estate Agents that were using technology to assist the deployed military men and women of the Armed Forces in their desire to purchase real estate in Hawaii.  Our
The fact that we are a RETIRED MILITARY FAMILY and have been in the shoes of the Soldiers and their spouses made us the number one choice in Hawaii for this story. Several of our clients that are from Mililani, Hawaii were … (16 comments)

Mililani Mauka and Mililani town are located in an area referred to as Central Oahu for the obvious reason that it is in the center of the island.
The word Mauka means that it is located toward the mountains.  When someone refers to an area of the island that is "mauka" of something, they are referring to the mountain side or inland.  The word Makai means towards the sea.  Mililani Mauka is located at an elevation of approximately 700-1,000 feet above sea level and Mililani … (0 comments)

Attention Hawaii Home-sellers! Attention Home-sellers!
If you have not heard, the VA home loan is one of the best loans you can get in today's current market.  Don't be afraid of the VA home loan.  All of the horror stories you have heard in the past about the VA home loan are not true.  If you are being told that you should not accept a buyer with VA loan eligibility then you need to turn around and walk the other way.  Hawaii real estate is a great … (24 comments)

By: David J. Kucic RA, ABR, AHWD, e-PRO, GRIFirst Sergeant, USA (Retired)Tropic Lightning Real Estate, Oahu, Hawaii
Recently I was asked by Active Rain member John Occhi if I could get him some information on the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act for him.  John knew that I was retired from the military in Hawaii and served in a position that would have given me knowledge about this program.  Since it has been several years since I retired from Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, I decided to make an appointment with the Judge Advocate Generals Office and obtained some information about the program to insure nothing had … (0 comments)

The Real Estate Market on Oahu, Hawaii
By: David Kucic (RA) GRI, ABR, e-PRO
What is really going on? Why are homes staying on the market longer than usual?  What happened to the real estate market that made everyone excited about purchasing a property a little over a year ago?
The truth of the matter is that there are several factors that are driving our current market such as supply and demand, interest rates and loan programs available to buyers. 
One of the major issues right now is with "Mortgages".  Of course, cash buyers won't have this problem. The lending industry has taken a real beating lately because … (7 comments)

With all of the recent deployments and the need for some good continuity, the Army has recently dedicated $100 million to the Family Readiness Groups or FRG's.  This will go all the way down to the battalion level of deploying units.  The position will be a civil service position and will be of the pay grade GS-6.  The official title has not been named but will be something similar to Family Readiness Group Assistant.  Schofield Barracks, Hawaii 2nd Brigade Combat Team should be one of the first … (0 comments)

Are you in the Military and on orders for Schofield Barracks, Hawaii or Wheeler Army Airfield in Hawaii?  Both of these installations are just outside the town of Mililani, Hawaii.  Are you thinking about buying a home when you arrive on the island?  Are you thinking about renting a home off post when you arrive?

On most days I am very glad to sit down, open emails and reply to the ones that require feedback.  However on occasion, I get something that really sets me back and has me scratching my head saying "Why, why, why?"
Yesterday I received an email from an old Military buddy that is deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.  He is serving with the 82nd Airborne Division from Ft. Bragg as the battalion executive officer.  I do not want to give his name because this … (17 comments)
