oahu hawaii real estate: Aquaponics in Hawaii Part Two - BUGS!!! - 11/06/14 09:28 AM
 Water, water all around you’d think the likely invasion of bugs bothering your plants would be reduced.  But, no – I have an invasion of aphids and ants on my leafy plants.  Here in Maunawili,  Kailua on Oahu, I have had, for the last year or so, an above average amount of ants in and about my yard.  The bug guy (thanks, Troy of Terminix) comes by once a quarter and keeps all buggy pests under control. 
But when I planted my Lilikoi vine, I started having problems with the ants invading the flowers and breaking them off before any fruit was made.  So I started to … (0 comments)

oahu hawaii real estate: I'm a Farmer and A Realtor in Hawaii - 10/27/14 11:13 AM
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)

Our Sunday newspaper has articles and excerpts from the Wall Street Journal.  One of those is an article on the 10 things a “blank” won’t tell you; fill in financial planner, resort, Disney, bank, etc.  So I thought I’d let you in the ten things your Hawaii Realtor® or Real Estate Agent won’t tell you.  Follow us this week as we look at them in depth at http://oahuhawaiirealestateonline.com.

oahu hawaii real estate: 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. My mother would give us the occasional look over to make sure we were fed and clean, loved us, and basically sent us out to do … (0 comments)

oahu hawaii real estate: Mayor Carlisle Vetoes Kailua Ban on Commercial Activity - 07/25/12 11:01 AM
The Star Bulletin announced the following:
Mayor vetoes bill for commercial activity ban at Kailua beacheshttp://www.staradvertiser.com/news/breaking/163777456.html?id=163777456
May the screaming begin.  The original fight for Camp Kailua was settled by banning all but one vendor of windsurfing and parasailing which is technically outside the park.  Over the past years more and more kayak and other ocean activity rentals have either rented to tourists from across the street and had the tourist walk the kayak on a roller cart or nearby businesses would rent the kayaks or other equipment for use and then park a truck with trailer and deliver the equipment in … (2 comments)
