"Went Beyond What Any Other Realtor I Know Of Would Do"
Eric was outstanding from the start in our home- buying process in Hawaii. From the beginning and throughout, Eric was always at our service with prompt, knowledgable advise and communication during the process. He helped us find the perfect home for our family with some personal video he sent us and then expertly moved us into a good position to buy the home. He also helped us during the inspection periods and with our negotiations to improve our buying confidence. We couldn't be more pleased with Eric's quality, knowledge, personality and negotiation skills. He was truly excellent.

More on the Big Island...
The Island of Hawaii is the youngest island in the Hawaiian chain and with an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined. In greatest dimension, the island is 93 miles across and has a land area of 4,028 square miles. Measured from its sea floor base to its highest peak, Mauna Kea is the world's tallest mountain, taller than Mount Everest is above sea level! It is also the largest island in the United States. As of 2010, the island had a resident population of 185,079.
The island provides a vast canvas of environments to discover a variety of unrivaled natural wonders. From the molten magma flowing from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to the snow-capped heights of Maunakea; from the green rainforests of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach; Hawaii Island is an unrivaled expression of the power of nature. This is also the home of one of the world’s most active volcanoes (Kilauea), the tallest sea mountain in the world at more than 33,000 feet (Maunakea), the most massive mountain in the world (Maunaloa) and the largest park in the state, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The Island of Hawaiʻi is built from five separate shield volcanoes that erupted somewhat sequentially, one overlapping the other. These are (from oldest to youngest): Kohala, Mauan Kea, Hualalai, Mauna Loa and Kilauea.
Anytime of year is a good time to visit Hawaii Island (and of course to come and shop for a Hawaii Home For Sale.) At sea level, the average summer temperature is 85 degrees Fahrenheit, 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. Trade winds keep things comfortable year-round. Whale watching season runs from December through May, with peak whale watching months between January and early April.
The Hilo region is blessed with dramatic waterfalls, fertile rainforests and blooming gardens; the geographic flipside of the volcanic Kohalo Coast Home to Hilo International Airport, Hilo is also the gateway to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park located 45 minutes south.
A busy farming and fishing area in early times, Hilo evolved into a commercial center for the sugar industry in the 1800’s. Downtown Hilo was built around its crescent-shaped bay and became the seat of county government. In 1946 and 1960 the town was nearly swallowed by a tsunami. But Hilo’s waterfront (and all of the Hawaii Beach Front Homes)was rebuilt and today Hilo is a vibrant town, home to great museums, art galleries (East Hawaii Cultural Center), unique shops. Many Hilo, Hawaii Homes For Sale and high end Hawaiian real estate is available, from oceanfront homes to beach front condos. Hilo’s newest world-class attraction, the Imiloa Astronomy Center, is housed beneath three striking titanium cones representing the three largest mountains on Hawaii Island. Interactive exhibits include a “walk” through a koa (native hardwood) forest and an IMAX-style movie presentation
On the northeastern side of Hawaii Island, just north of Hilo, lies the Hamakua Coast. With 84 inches of rainfall a year, this area is known for lush tropical rainforests, waterfalls and lovely seaside views. The Hamakua uplands were once a rich source for canoe wood and bird feathers for Native Hawaiians. During most of the 19th and 20th centuries, this area was covered with sugarcane. Today, communities that grew around these plantations can still be found along the coast where small farmers still grow kalo (taro), hearts of palm, vegetables and tropical fruit. Small towns like Honokaa also feature specialty shops and boutiques with their own local flavor.
As you drive along the scenic coast, you’ll see deep water-carved gulches and valleys, thick with tropical foliage. Stop and tour gardens full of exotic plants and orchids and the triple-tiered Umauma Falls. This area is also home to Akaka Falls one the Hawaii Island’s most famous waterfalls. One look at the beauty of these waterfalls and you’ll understand why they are called wailele (leaping waters) in Hawaiian.
You’ll notice the dramatic change in your surroundings as you travel north beyond the dazzling resorts, golf courses and lava landscapes of the Kohala Coastto the lush, undeveloped pastoral lands of North Kohala. Just before Puukohola Heiau, turn east up Kawaihae Road to explore the cool scenic fields of Waimea In sharp contrast to the lava landscapes along the coast and having more in common with lush North Kohala, this upcountry area I paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) country, full of green pastures and panoramic views. Visit Kahua Ranch for a horseback riding tour or ATV drive and explore this lovely landscape while you learn about Hawaii’s ranching past. Take the scenic drive through the northern most tip of Hawaii Island and enjoy an unforgettable journey off the beaten path. Travel back in time and learn about the culture of Hawaii Island in North Kohala.
The sunny Kona District stretches for about 60 miles from Kona International Airport to beyond Kealakekua Bay on Hawaii Island’s lava-lined western coast. Along this expansive area, you’ll find everything from coffee farms to historic Hawaiian landmarks, with plenty of Big Island Land For Sale. In fact, King Kamehameha actually spent his final years in Kailua-Kona. Today, Historic Kailua Village is a bustling, gathering place in the heart of the district, just a 15-minute drive south of Kona International Airport. Home to shops, restaurants and nightlife you can conveniently take a walking tour of Kona’s history at places like Hulihee Palace, Mokuaikaua Church and the Ahuena Heiau.
Other significant historic places include Kealakekua Bay to the south, where Captain James Cook first set foot on the island in 1778 and where he was eventually killed. North of Kailua-Kona is the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park, a 1160-acre park that lets you explore early heiau (temples)and fishponds. Shielded from winds by Maunaloa, south Kona’s calm and clear waters are perfect for snorkeling, diving and spotting dolphins and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles). One of Kona’s most memorable experiences is going on a manta ray boat tour to scuba or snorkel with these gentle, graceful sea creatures. Kona is also famous for its deep-sea fishing, hosting the International Billfish Tournament every year. And on land, don’t forget to travel to the cooler upland slopes of towns like Holualoa, where you can sample the distinctive flavors of 100% Kona Coffee. Possible the best coffee on earth! On the versatile Kona coast, you’ll find the adventures are as big as the island itself. And if you are in the market for Hawaii Ranch For Sale, this a great place to start looking!
