windward oahu real estate: Aikahi Living at its Finest! 223 Aiokoa St-SOLD OVER ASKING IN 7 DAYS - 06/27/13 04:22 AM
This is a follow up to my article when this awesome property was first listed. There was one broker's open, and one open house and then 7 offers were presented to the Seller's. This was one of those transactions that was pleasurable. The Seller's were agreeable to all of my suggestions from start to finish. We met a month or so before and set our game plan. The seller decluttered, did some finishing touches on fixtures in the house, gave it a good cleaning inside and out, and finally staged it to sell.
The Buyer's were pleasent, and the Buyer's … (0 comments)

windward oahu real estate: SOLD To a Wonderful Client :) - 05/24/13 05:03 AM
They say that every deal is different. If you are a Realtor, then you know this is so true!!! I was assigned to my client Jenny through USAA Movers Advantage Program. She relocated hear from the mainland and works for the Navy. She is one of those people that always looks at the glass half full which I admire. There were certain challenges in searching for properties because of it being a sellers market and also in this deal that could have gone south, but Jenny remained so calm and trusted in me and my abilitites. As a result of this, … (0 comments)

This is a follow up blog about this new listing that entered the market last week Monday. Broker's open had over 70 brokers and public groups that came through this past Thursday. This Sunday there were 40-50 groups. I was fortunate enough to get featured on the Honolulu Star Advertiser, and a BONUS ARTICLE below from the Honolulu Magazine which was a pleasant surprise! The writer was nice enough to email me the link to her article.
The interesting thing that I experienced on this Sunday open house, was that people lingered at the house. By 5:00pm there were still people … (4 comments)

windward oahu real estate: Kailua's Kaha St. Listing-Receiving 16 Offers..CRAZY MARKET RIGHT NOW! - 02/22/13 02:14 AM
Kailua has established international notoriety with its fabulous beaches and views. It is also a favorite location and been visited by many celebrities as well as President Obama and his family. I would say last year and now this year, the market has taken off big time on Oahu in general. Kailua is crazy right now!!! Our inventory is probably historically low along with the interest rates. There are agents/buyers just swarming over new listings and this one is a prime example.
This quaint and lovely property entered the market last week by Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties. I visited the brokers … (0 comments)

windward oahu real estate: This Keolu Hills Home Has It All! - 01/30/13 04:11 AM
Kailua's Keolu Hills is an older neighborhood (most homes built in the 60's era which are generally single wall construction homes) that sometimes offers lovely views of Kailua's Enchanted Lakes and the neighborhood below. It is located just a few minutes from Kailua Beach. In the past six months there have been 20 listings that have sold with the average price of $714k. To date, Kailua's median price range is just below $800k, so Keolu Hills is somewhat affordable for the area.
There is a new listing that has popped up last week that is a little out of character since … (2 comments)

"Condominium Property Regime". The brief explanation to this is when one property is legally divided with two or more structures on the land. It still is a single family home but … (5 comments)

windward oahu real estate: A follow up to "Diamond in the rough Kailua Olomana home" 18 OFFERS!!! - 11/01/12 05:14 AM

So the area is very scenic and has a tropical feel to it being so green and lush. The lots are larger and the houses are older and therefore it is one of the desirable places in Kailua, because the prices in this neighborhood are generally lower than other areas in Kailua.
I attended brokers open and previewed this property. The floors were stripped to bear bones, the kitchen … (0 comments)

windward oahu real estate: Diamond in the rough Kailua "Olomana" home - 10/18/12 04:45 AM
The Olomana community in Kailua is located right off the Pali Highway butted up to the mountain. This area is greener with a country like feel. Kailua beach is only about a 5 minute car ride away. The lots are usually 7500 square feet or higher, and considering that Kailua's median price range is in the upper 700,000's, the Olomana area offers properties that can be purchased for less than Kailua's median price range. Most homes are single wall construction, older, but very liveable. It has its own schools, and parks for children to play in as well. A great little … (2 comments)
