Going Green and Sustainable in Hawaii
I have a good friend who has chosen to move to Washington State where they can  have more for less.  It isn’t cheap to live in Hawaii and there are always concerns about supply in case of storms or other disasters that would disrupt our supply line from the mainland and elsewhere.  But my friend (and yes, I will be listing the home in Enchanted Lakes later this year – more on that later) had an aquaponic system he’d gotten from another friend when that friend choose to move.
Now it’s really advantageous to have … (1 comments)

homes in hawaii: Hidden Dual Agency – Your Agent Cannot Negotiate for You - 04/11/14 07:11 AM
What Do You Mean You’re Not Negotiating for Me? With newly clarified rules, some larger brokerages may find their buyers in dual agency situations more often than not.  What’s dual agency, you ask?  Remember that paper you signed or the discussion we had about agency when we first started working together?  Of course you don’t, as the language Realtors® deal in can be very “legal-eze” and we all tend to “skip” hearing things we don’t want to hear and get on with what we want to do – get a good deal on buying or selling property.
In a nutshell, when … (0 comments)

homes in hawaii: Becoming Invisible...Again - 03/19/13 07:14 AM
When I was a child a common saying was children should be seen and not heard. My father was not much for babies or toddlers, but was a large part of our lives once we became “interesting”, i.e. could have salient arguments and back our premise with facts. He was a formidable devil’s advocate, but that was how he taught us – to teach is the true meaning of discipline – and by his example.

homes in hawaii: We Search for Homes in Hawaii By Neighborhood Not City-Here's Why - 09/28/12 01:08 PM
Hawaii, the State, is a small chain of islands in the middle of the Pacific (more on Hawaii).  Hawaii is also the island of Hawaii and the county of Hawaii, which includes the island of Hawaii (better known as the Big Island).  Maui is an island and a county, but the county of Maui also includes Lanai island - confused yet?  Oahu is an island, but it is in the county of Honolulu, which is also a city and is the capital of Hawaii (the state) and is located on the island of Oahu. Now I bet I've got your head … (1 comments)

homes in hawaii: Will the Price of Cherries Go Down? - 07/24/12 04:28 AM
It's the middle of Summer here in Hawaii.  We've had a plethora of cherries in the markets and I've been looking to buy when the price was right to make Christmas gifts.  I need ripe, but not overripe friut but I didn't want to pay the high price of $7.00 a pound.  I found some in Chinatown in Honolulu for $2.99 a pound, but that wasn't quite low enough.
Today, at Safeway in Kailua, I saw the last of the season cherries were on sale for $1.99 a pound.  They were ripe but not too ripe. I drove back to the … (2 comments)
