Looking a head at traveling to Maui Hawaii

This summer has been the slowest as far as tourist coming to Maui.  With Aloha Airlines calling it quits and ATA Airlines folding it left a Hugh void.  Driving through the airport on the way to windsurf this summer I notice that it's been the slowest since any time I can remember.  One thing I do detect is a little change in the air.  The dollar is gaining strength against the Euro and the Pound. 

That also helps bring down the cost of oil.  So that should directly affect the … (0 comments)

How to effectively sell your home in a slow Maui market?

I was watching a special on TV about the rise of the super rich.  It is a new bread of young wealthy people.  Who are these people that slip under the radar.  They are Hedge Fund Traders.  Real Estate investors and players in the Hi-Tech world.  What is different about this new generation of wealth is that they spend big.  This group is the $30Million and up.  They interviewed a woman that started her own internet business and her worth was $10 million.  She was sharing that she did not consider her self rich.  … (17 comments)

maui real estate for sale: The sky is falling the sky is falling. - 07/29/08 01:49 PM
Do you get the feeling that a lot of real estate agents are running scared.  They are looking at multi marketing or cutting hair for a living. I remember in the last down cycle people were saying it will never get better.  This is a pruning period in real estate.  The season agent knows how to step it up and also how to trim their sails. There are people that still need to move to other cities.  People that are actually looking at this market as a opportunity to buy.  So why the media is painting a negative picture and some of it is … (21 comments)

Upcountry in the winter can have snow capped Haleakala carter in December.  The north shore is more tropical and lush.  It can be rainy at times but that is what makes it so beautiful.

 Hawaiian Jam in Haiku
One thing I have always enjoyed in Hawaii is getting together for parties, birthdays, weddings and just afternoon Pau Hana let's jam some music. When I first came to Hawaii in 1970 in Kona on the big Island.  After a day of surf out at Banyan's we would get together and watch the sunset and someone was always playing a Ukulele or guitar and singing.  Having moved to Maui in 1973 I have always enjoyed getting together with friends eating and playing music.  Here are a couple of shot at my friends niece birthday party to share … (0 comments)
