Waikele Real Estate | Waikele Housing Market (Video & Pictures)

Real Estate Agent with Liberty Homes RS-#62825

Lush Greenery in WaikeleIt's kind of hard to get a clear video while driving along (and driving) in a neighborhood....unless someone else is driving. Then again, you get a side view of the neighborhood if someone else is driving and you're the passenger. Maybe I just need to get a car with a sun roof so I can stand up and take a video. Then again, I think that's illegal.

Click It Or Ticket!  The Honolulu Police Department commercials scream....stressing that everyone needs to be buckled in the car for their safety or else you get a hefty ticket.

So....Baby You Can Drive My Car is the theme of my Waikele Neighborhood Video. I didn't talk (except at the end) and just listened to my music (Man on the Moon) while driving to pick up a client. (I was not going to embarrass myself and sing for you all ....like I usually do...with my windows up so I don't cause an accident for people passing by lol)


Anyway, the Waikele neighborhood is across the highway from Waipio Gentry and about 10 minutes from Mililani Town and started building in 1991 with only TWO townhouse complexes. It has grown to 9 single family and 12 townhome communities.

Sally I am disappointed. I thought that by now you would have the technique of driving with your knees while video taping down ......... LOL

I believe they call that multi tasking :) :)

George: Okay...that was pretty funny....(just so you know...I've done that a few times before...when I used to smoke and not have a wireless ear thingy for the phone. That wasn't very safe though.) and you wouldn't believe some of the things I do...for multi tasking ;)

I have a great idea! You should put your camera on a tripod and stick it through the sun roof =D

And our city has those Click It or Ticket signs everywhere.

Sally, I love that you're doing these videos, they look like so much fun!  It looks like you're driving straight into the clouds...

The going rate on tickets here for driving without a seatbelt is $150.00. OUCh, mine is always buckled.

Sally - how did you keep your car in the right lane and do the side shots?? I tend to go where my eyes lead! What a pretty area and you're doing a great job with these videos. You do great localism pieces and this video camera will just add to the great job you're doing. Are you officially the tourism ambassador yet??

Morning Sally,

Nice video, you are doing great with that new cam.....good for you! Just remember to click it though, you know how dangerous the roads can be...besides, the cost of the ticket isn't deductable. LOL

Yikes, driving and taking video at the same time? You are brave! I just checked out our first video and as I said I am truly inspired!  I need to get out and try it soon!  Great job and thanks for sharing your work as you progress.

Sally... they just passed a "no talking on cell phone" while driving law, unless you have a head set or such...  but after watching this, I wonder if we should pass a "no video taping" while driving..... lol

Looks like you are having fun with your new flip video.  I bought the new Sony one that is similar.  I had time to test it out here yet.

Gary: Okay...I'll laugh with you instead of at you LOL!

Diane: I have no shame :)

Jeff: I would just drop it on the floor if it interfered with my driving. It was like holding a part of the steering wheel :)

Randy: Go for it....loads of fun....I'll show you the one with Leona and Joann on it ...that was a crack up!

Love the video, Sally! The Man on the Moon is one of my favourite songs.....I would have been singing along. I'll have to get one of those little flip video cameras and take some videos around here. Amazing how different each area of the continent looks.
