"The traffic out to Ewa Beach SUCKS" is something I hear almost daily.  That statement is a fact unless you like sitting in traffic.
Why is there so much traffic going into Ewa Beach?  Because all of those people on that road have found Ewa Beach to be a great place to live including my family and I.   Most of the homes are new or newer construction, lot sizes are pretty decent and the homes are some of the most affordable on the island.  The … (5 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)

schofield barracks: 1SG (Ret) David Kucic Writes: What Is A Military Relocation Specialist? - 07/02/07 08:13 PM
What Is A Military Relocation Specialist?: By 1SG (Ret) David Kucic
To answer in very simple terms, this means assisting the moving of a military family from one military installation to another.  It is not nearly as easy as that simple explanation though.
For those of us that have served in the military know that there is A LOT more to moving from one place to another.  Tonya and I have moved well over 25 times during our military life that we have become accustomed to moving and look at it more like embarking on a new adventure rather than a stressful task.  … (7 comments)
