Royal Kona Resort Lunch With Hella Rothwell

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

My sister says from my blog it looks like I am running all over Big Island with Hella, and I guess we have been. It's quite the rollercoaster with Hella. And when you throw me into the mix, there is no telling what can happen. It's been wild and hilarious. Everything has flowed so smoothly, too, which undoubtedly is due in large part to Hella. That woman answers her phone wherever she is, unless driving with me, I guess.

We zipped right through the home inspection and then I wanted to talk to the neighbors. We found the guy next door at home for lunch, so we politely grilled him about everything. He's been on this culdesac for 10 years and ended up going back to work after retirement. He married a woman from work he did not initially care for and was sporting a shiny new wedding band from their elopment to Las Vegas two weeks ago. It's amazing the stuff people tell you.

We ended our home inspection at the Royal Kona Resort, after a little detour. You can read more and see the photos in my personal blog today at this link: Royal Kona Resort for Lunch and Honokohau Harbor.

Elizabeth, sounds like your home purchase is moving along well, and nice to get to know your new neighbors.

A savvy buyer like Elizabeth should check out the neighbors. Makes sense. A bad neighbor can be a deal breaker, in my books.

Congratulations on your home purchase, Elizabeth. I'm sure it's lovely.

Years ago I had an investment condo on Ali'i Drive and enjoyed walking to town; such a pretty harbor.

The Don The Beachcomber Restaurant at the Royal Kona Resort is right next door to Huggo's and Huggo's On The Rocks (which can get very lively), also oceanfront. And all within a mile from your new home. How good is that!

Hi Elizabeth.  It drives me frigging crazy when people try to find ways not to make it happen.

I know Conrad, right? They have rules and ways things are done, and they can't in a million years imagine any other way to do things.

Glad to hear your home inspection went well.  You think you might do the Hawaii real estate license to go with the house?
