DIY Face Mask with Filter in Under 10 Seconds

 

Aloha! Have you been wondering how to make a DIY face mask? Me too.

After watching about all of the top videos on YouTube on "How to Make a Face Mask" I decided to make my own.

One that even guys can understand and execute quickly.....like in an emergency. Hello, this is NOT TIME for fancy patterns, going to the store to buy materials and/or sewing some home economics arts and crafts BS.

This is a global pandemic. Protecting you and your family from COVID19 aka the Corona Virus requires real solutions that really work, really fast.

The others mask tutorials that I tried were very time consuming. Not to mention difficult (if not impossible) to create a tight seal with the flimsy (and hard to

Honua Kai

Condos For Sale and Property Management

Almost fours years ago I made this review video about the Honua Kai Resort and Spa.

Since then I have met talked to and met many people who agree that this property remains one of the best, if not THE best, performing short term vacation rentals in all of West Maui. And now, with the almost completely constructed Luana Garden Villas (Completion Fall 2020) the final piece is in place on this crowning West side destination resort. 

But like any business venture there are downsides. And the sooner they are discovered the sooner they can be mitigated to avoid costly mistakes and maximize your return on investment.

Three things to Consider:

1) Keeping your unit fresh and up to date. Like

Puamana Condos for Sale and Best Property Management

OK, so you are thinking about buying a unit at one of my ALL TIME favorite vacation rentals and ocean front communities in ALL OF MAUI.

Excuse me, Puamana BEACH front (well sometimes it's there and sometimes it not.....I know) I usually paddle down from Puamana Beach Park to check out the scene with the sand!

Or you already own a Puamana Unit (Lucky You!) and need a new property management company. Whether you are already using AIRBNB or VRBO for Puamana, you still need a management company that will work extra hard for you and not charge a penny over 25%!

Either way, I can help.

You see, I am a HUGE fan of Puamana. I used to live on Front Street and secretly fantasized about living in

What if There Are NO Lanikeha Homes For Sale?

That's actually very possible. Since this is a very new neighborhood, only 48 have been built so far. In that case, you will need to purchase some land for sale at Lanikeha and build your dream home! Then the big question becomes "Who Do I Hire as the Builder" Naturally you will want to find the best builder in Lanikeha. That combination of reputable and reasonably priced (ie does not OVER charge!) is tough to find. Call me at 808-298-2030 and I will be happy to give you my top three suggested builders in the Lanikeha neighborhood.

Hawaii Fix and Flip - An Endless Market

Many of my best clients are investors looking to buy homes or condos for both fix and flip and/or long term hold. Either way, the process and formula for doing them successfully has not changed much over the years. Buy low, keep your improvement costs under a tight budget and make sure your sold comparables support at least a 30% return on investment....with less than a 6 month hold time! If anything, the advent of non-judicial foreclosures in Hawaii has created a huge backlog of pre-foreclosures, (whereby you get a chance to negotiate with the seller who is still in charge of the property) So the market is ripe with many months, if not years of back logged inventory just sitting there ready to be found, bought,
