¡Feliz Año Nueve! Bonne Année! Hou'oli Makahiki Ho! Felice Anno Nuovo! And for Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® Frohes Neues Jahr! And to all of my friends in Active Rain, clients and associates: Happy New Year! Honestly, it's not that I don't know where 2017 went. It's that I don't know how we...

I might not always recall the first sale of the year but I always remember the last one. Especially when it closes just under the wire on the last day of the year. In the olden days, like 2010, often that last sale was a short sale that I battled for 4 to 6 months. It was often bitter sweet. Now,...

It did not take me long to figure out why there is nothing growing in several areas of our garden in Hawaii. Of course, like any buyer, I can't help but wonder if this is something the seller knew and failed to disclose or forgot to tell me. I find it really odd that when I dig through the volcan...

Many agents, if you ask them, do not like being involved in multiple offer situations. It can stress out some agents. They probably tend to prefer dealing with one buyer at a time, not juggling things, and not trying to maximize seller profit potential. Just slide the transaction into escrow.On t...

One of my projects scheduled for the day after Christmas was to climb up on my SUV and try to install a garage tennis ball. It's the sort of thing that I would joke about with my friends whenever I spotted such a thing at somebody's house. It never made sense to me. Well, maybe if the front end o...

Conversation around the dinner table with my neighbors in Kona was quite entertaining this Christmas. One neighbor is building a Tiny House and plans to travel around the mainland, towing her Tiny House, giving lectures to single women babyboomers about realizing dreams. Talk about life-changing ...

When I asked my neighbor, who is also my Christmas dinner host, if I could bring a liliko'i cake as dessert, she was fairly adamant that I not leave the remainder of the cake at her house. First, I think she was assuming I would bring an enormous cake, and second, she apparently has about as much...

When I upload documents to DocuSign, I often will email them first to the seller and explain the paperwork we are about to sign. I also try to include a note with the paperwork in DocuSign, just to refresh and explain. Much of the paperwork is redundant throughout my day as more and more disclosu...

When I sign a listing agreement, agreeing to represent my sellers, I sign it with the intentions of seeing their transaction through to its completion, regardless of what happens or how long it takes to accomplish. Because there are things that can occur which are out of our control. I see some s...

When you hear people say: "it's not the money, it's the principle," it's generally the money, ha, ha, ha. However, in this particular instance, it is definitely the principle and not the money. I lost less than 50 bucks. Not enough to make a big deal about it.But it's the way that it happened. I ...
