Dear Diary - buying a home in Wailea Maui

Royal Palms in Wailea Pualani EstatesDear Diary - In the past week I have been showing some clients a lot of homes for sale in the Wailea Maui area.  We've been to Wailea Pualani Estates, with this fabulous stand of Royal Palms pictured.  We've been to Wailea Kialoa which is just below Wailea Pualani.  We've seen everything on the market in Wailea Kai, and then some.  Then there were some more beautiful homes in Wailea Fairway Estates, Wailea Golf Vistas, and Wailea Golf Estates.  We had a couple of really intense days, seeing 6 or 7 homes each day.  That was plenty, enough to make the head spin.  They have been really great and were able to sort them all out and even requested 3 repeat showings.  Yesterday they narrowed it down to two homes, and then finally to one. YES!

We have submitted the offer on their favorite Wailea home - a large single level home with a pool and wonderful ocean views.  I think we'll be able to work out the details and come to an agreement soon, before they leave the island. 

I am really enjoying working with this retired couple, who know exactly what they want.  It's nice to work with experienced buyers who aren't scared to make an offer and get what they want.  A home in Wailea Maui is just the thing for them.

Georgina, been there with the seven homes in a day, and while fun, can be exhausting. Glad you got it down to one and an offer. Good luck on its acceptance.

Georgina, this is just beautiful. I could sure retire there. I might even live a bit longer! Can you learn to surf at 70? Blub~blug.

I've only worked with one retired couple, but I certainly agree that it was a joy to work with them. They knew what they wanted and were happy to make an offer when we found it for them.

Georgina - I have not worked with many retired couples, but the one couple I did work with were a lot of fun! They wanted to be on a canal so they could be out on their boat all the time.
