homes for sale: Selling homes in your own neighborhood - 02/11/23 05:51 PM
Selling homes in your own neighborhoodAgents - do you like to sell homes and land in your own neighborhood?  It makes it easy for travel and of course you know the area well.  I think we all have an advantage when we sell properties closer to "home".  We understand the weather and climate.  We know some of the history of the area, like who the neighbors are and what's happening nearby.
This new listing in Haiku Maui is really close to where I live, and I walk by it when I do the neighborhood "loop" walk - a 2 mile country road … (14 comments)

The median price of a single family home on Maui went over $1,000,000 for the first time ever, in May 2021.  It's not much of a surprise since it's been up around $980,000 already a couple of times this year.

Succulent gardens, rock walls at 890 Upper Kimo Drive, Kula Maui 
Take a look at the eye-popping variety of succulents, aloes, and agave at this Kula home for sale, in Upcountry Maui.  If you love gardening, you'll love this colorful garden!

Rock walls are a common sight in the Upcountry area, due to the hilly terrain.  These lava rock walls have been built with gardening in mind, and hold a wonderful array of easy to grow succulent plants that don't require a lot of water.  The owner has lovingly tended these gardens with an artistic eye for color and texture.

homes for sale: Aerial shot of Huelo and Waipio Bay on Maui's north shore - 10/09/19 09:20 PM
 Aerial shot of Huelo and Waipio Bay on Maui's north shore
Huelo, Waipio, Honokala - Haiku Maui from the air
It's a big wide shot of this beautiful coastal scenery along Maui's north shore.  You won't see this from the Road to Hana, but with a drone flying camera it's possible. This is the coastline on the top of the eastern flank between Paia and Keanae, showing the typical terrain of seaside cliffs punctuated with mountain streams in steep gorges.  The land drops away quickly offshore as well, making for deep ocean currents just a short way out.
We love it here because it's … (8 comments)

homes for sale: Bottlebrush tree in Kula Maui HI 96790 - 08/13/19 02:03 AM
It's an easy post - a picture of a bottlebrush tree taken while touring homes for sale in Kula Maui.  We see so many beautifully landscaped yards and I can't help but notice and take pictures. 
The upcountry climate favors more temperate species, unlike the hot and steamy north shore, or the arid lowlands by the beaches.
Kula Maui is where you can grow such fruit trees as apples and peaches, veggies like artichokes and cauliflower, along with so many other flowers and foods.

My sign got featured in a Real Estate story on
Another Realtor emailed me about the sign in this story, and I had no idea what they were talking about, so... went to the website to see what the big deal was.
Funny thing though - the picture is a post from Instagram a few years ago, at a listing in Pukalani Maui.  The story claims it's a sign with magic techno powers!  They said "This pretty looking sign sitting in the bushes above? Be careful, it just might beam a message to your phone without you even knowing it!"
Whaaaat? - it's … (13 comments)

homes for sale: Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood - 04/07/19 02:45 AM
Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood
If you want an oceanfront home in Kihei Maui, the options are somewhat limited, because much of the coastal real estate is taken up by condominium resorts, and beach parks.  South Kihei Road is the main artery along the coastline, and there's a few streets that extend beyond this and offer some neighborhoods with single family homes.  Uluniu Rd. is one, and Halama St. is another.  Let's see what's happening on Halama St....
Halama Street - runs between Kalama Park to the south, and up to W. Kapu Rd. to the north.

homes for sale: Where did the Mokulele Highway go? Maui breaking news! - 10/10/17 06:17 PM
Where did the Mokulele Highway go?  Maui breaking news!
Well the old answer would be: The highway went from Kahului in the north to Kihei in the south.
The new answer is: The Mokulele Highway (Route 311) has been renamed and it's now called Maui Veterans Highway.  Governor David Ige signed the bill in April to make the change.  The signs are now up, so don't be confused when you see them.  Not so sure if Google is paying attention yet.
