kailua realtor: Would You Pay More To Sell Your House? - 04/08/09 05:26 PM
Offering a higher commission to help sell it faster presupposes that a realtor would focus more efforts to sell a home where they earn more commission, and that just simply is not the case with most of us -- no wonder realtors have a bad rep.

I just read an article on MSN Money, Pay More to Sell a Home Faster,  that … (2 comments)

kailua realtor: Kailua Neighborhood Series: Maunawili - 09/26/07 03:07 PM
Data current as of September 2007.
Maunawili is one of Kailua's best kept secrets. Maunawili is lush and green, and as would be expected, a bit rainer than some other areas of Kailua.

Living here also shortens your commute to downtown Honolulu, as it is located off Auloa Road, turning South from the Pali Hwy (61) and heading into the country. This area is very convenient to Le Jardin Academy and Trinity Christian School, and to H-3. Maunawili has many beautiful homes with spectacular mountain views, including some large estates on huge … (0 comments)

Kailua No Ka'oi! If you want to live in a place with a small-town feel, with famed white-sand beaches and turquoise waters, there is Kailua and its many quiet family neighborhoods.
