As we finish out 2008 alot or Realtors are going to question their ability to stay in the business. You know the saying 20% of the Realtors do 80% of the business.

Having just recently returned from the Pac Rim conference held on the Big Island of Hawaii (The Big Eye) I have to say I was amazed that it wasn't better attended. This was a great opportunity for Realtors on the Big Island to attend a conference that did not require getting on a plane. This conf...
Wow! What a powerful class. Again, I can not tell you enough how valuable the Courses that CRS provide their members. The people you meet, the course material and the instructors are first class. Each time I attend another class I am reminded about the value of continuing education and what means...

Since attending my first CRS class I decided to obtain my Accredited Buyer's Rep. designation. Since the course was not being offered at this time I decided to do the class online. As most of you know it is a two day class and also requires an elective course that is 6 hours. These two classes we...
Self-sufficient, not yet, too late...not really! Continuing on in the same vein as my last blog, it can never be too late to prepare but I personally feel very strongly that the time is now. We need to recognise, as islanders the need to produce more of our own food and have less dependency on th...
Recently on the Big Island and more specially Pahoa there has been alot of discussion about recent lava flows and the potential of those flows reaching the town of Pahoa and/or other surrounding areas. Those of us living in the Puna area consider ourselves Punatics and all good Punatics have an o...
