Coming Soon...Hana, Hawaii Ocean Front Land For Sale it's finest

I've said it before in my blog post. It's rare to see a large tract of land come on the open real estate market here in Hawaii. It's even more rare if that offering is direct ocean front, let alone beach! Even more rare is if that parcel has utilities close by, is already subdivided, easy access from county paved and maintained road and has low tax AG zoning. And the final layer of 'rarity' is if that offering has not already been placed into a conservation easement. I can't let the cat out the bag yet, but keep posted for one of Hawaii"s Premier Legacy ocean front land offering to hit the market. You might even find multiple parcels with their own TMK making it possible to

 Here is a short and sweet video about how I came to be in Hawaii...and my driving passion (my 4 boys)

I believe a sweet "tip" in the Maui Real Estate market is to buy a 2 bedroom unit at Honua Kai. Once the developer inventory is gone (which should be soon) it's very possible the same equity boost will take place as what happened with the one bedroom units. Keep an eye on this inventory. When you see a solid ocean view unit come on the market....grab it!

Even though Housing prices in Hawaii continue to rise, and some even contend we have an affordable housing crisis on our hands, I still believe that good research will reveal great buys in today's real estate market. Here are my top picks for November 2015 of the best real estate deals on Maui for single family residential homes. I personally showed the home located at 729 Alae Rd. last week and it is absolutely gorgeous and large. For the price, it's clearly the best UpCountry home on the market today. The drive up to the home could be considered a little arduous, but the view, privacy and setting make the trip worthwhile. And at a whopping 5,000+ square feet, you have the perfect Maui Home for a large family, multi-generational family and/or income

May I share a quick story with you?

 I recently sold a VERY well known, luxury home here in Hawaii. 

Do you want to know WHAT is was well known FOR?   FOR NOT SELLING! 

Maui Real Estate

Previous to me taking the listing, it literally “sat” on the market UNSOLD for almost 7 years

(By the way, other very well known, “old school” local real estate agents had attempted to sell this property, but never received an OFFER.)

What made the difference, you may ask?

 Allow me to share with you some of the specific details of what I did as the listing agent to make the sale.

 I am going to *warn* you, some if this is NOT very glamorous .

(some of it, just plain common sense)

 Quick background. The owner (Craig B.) did not live on Maui. This was a second

 It will make you cry....

I have always been in awe when it comes the natural beauty of Hawaii. Some say it's almost "magical" I like to say that God just saved his best work for last! One of the things I love to do (when I'm not selling real estate) is to capture people living and loving these islands. One of the ways I do that is with my son Dylan. We have a fun side business called "Maui Photography and Drone" We recently had the honor of capturing Brad and Emily getting engaged on the white shore sandy beaches of Hawaii. What unfolded was nothing short of spectacular and has captured the hearts of many viewers. Grab your tissues! Click "Read Full Post" to see the video screen.

Lahaina Halloween Front Street

Get ready! Halloween on Maui is right around the corner. And there is no better place on Maui to spend Halloween than in Lahaina town on Front Street! With over 30,000 residents and visitors walking up and down the street you can count on a Mardi Gras type atmosphere without any of the "weirdness."

Front Street Lahaina Halloween


It was rumored for a while that this celebration on Front Street was going to be stopped. But no way. This is one of the best and unique events you can experience on Maui all year long. What happens you ask?

Well first of all...they totally shut down ALL of Front Street to car traffic and the bars and restaurants are booming. You can walk up and down (preferably in a crazy costume) and you will lose yourself! Any

PS - I also have a YouTube channel with many informative videos about Hawaii, Maui and Real Estate. Check it Out Here

My family (Lisa my wife and 4 boys) and I have been living in the "Up-Country" of Hawaii for the past 2 1/2 years. We recently moved from 1200' feet in elevation to 3600' feet. It was time to really experience every aspect of Kula Maui Real Estate! It's REALLY amazing the difference! At 1000' feet it was something like rarely rained and it was a very dry climate. The temperature and bright sunny days are very similar to living at sea level, but just not as humid.

Kula Maui Real Estate 


Now living at 3600' feet, it reminds me sooo much of Colorado. The air is very crisp and clean and

Do Your Research Before Buying a Condo in Hawaii.

Here are the twenty "areas of concern" that I would ask questions about

 before tendering an offer to purchase a vacation rental condo in Hawaii

1) What has been the NET income for the property the last 5 years? This would be AFTER paying the management fees (usually runs 20-50% of Gross Income) and GET (General Excise Tax), and TAT (Transient Accomodation Tax) all monthly HOA fees, Leasehold fees (if applicable - ie the property is NOT fee simple ownership) utilities, cleaning, supplies and miscellaneous repairs.

2) What is the occupancy rate for each month. This is the percentage the property is occupied versus sitting empty. How many nights did the owner/friends and family stay in the
