Aloha and welcome to Kahului - home of the Realtors Association of Maui - otherwise known as RAM. RAM was formerly called the Maui Board of Realtors. Kahului and sister city Wailuku are considered the main towns of the island, and are centrally located in the central valley between the West Maui mountains and Haleakala to the east.
RAM is dedicated to serving the Realtor community of Maui county, which includes the islands of Maui, Molokai and Lanai. The friendly staff is always available to help with questions or other matters. RAM emails all agents a weekly newsletter with industry news and statistics, upcoming educational classes, and reminders of special events. In addition to Realtor members, we also have affiliates like lenders, title and escrow companies, and service providers such as home inspectors and pest control experts. This month we have about 1,660 members. Being a small island, it's easy to get to know many people in the industry, and we tend to see each other around a lot. 3 or 4 times a year we have General Membership meetings which are designed to educate and inform members of new policies or market trends, and we often bring in well known motivational speakers. Each month we also try to have a Hot Topic of general interest, with a guest speaker, which is free for members. There is always plenty going on at our great facility, and involvement is encouraged. From what I gather, we have a very forward thinking association and we are extremely lucky.
Maui Realtors also like to help out in the community to improve the quality of life for Maui residents.
Each year the RAM members sponsor a house build for Habitat for Humanity, and this year we built 2 homes for local families in the Wailuku area. With fun activities like a golf tournament, whale watch excursion, and charity walk, plenty of money is raised for the RAM Presidential Scholarship Fund, the Maui Food Bank, and more!
We have a number of volunteer committees that deal with topics like: Arbitration; Education; MLS; and Government Affairs. We want all of Maui County to know that we care. Once a month we have a Hot Topic of general interest, that's offered FREE to anyone who wants to come.
RAM has a public website at www.RAMaui.com with great resources and links. Here you can find a Realtor, peruse statistics, read the Code of Ethics, and learn about Maui. On the site you can surf the active and pending listings with WebSearch, either by scrolling through the most recent new listings, or searching by area or other criteria. This is the same WebSearch that you will find on most agent sites. You can contact the staff by phone (808-873-8585), by fax (808-871-8911), or email (info@RAMaui.com).
Like many other areas in the US, we use the PARAGON browser to keep educated about MLS information and updates. This online MLS system allows agents to input listings, search listings, and send auto-notifications to clients who are actively looking for a property. Paragon is constantly improving their technology to better help the Realtor community with their needs. We are all looking forward to Paragon 4.0 which is about to be released at the end of this month, October 31st. Some other Hawaiian islands use a different system than Paragon, but all Hawaii Realtors are allowed to join our MLS if they want to participate.
