We have now moved into the part of my vacation which is a vacation from my vacation on Oahu. I had originally planned to spend only four days in Waikiki with Hella to celebrate New Year's. But then my husband told me that Patton Oswalt is scheduled to perform tonight at the Blue Note. Hey, some good has come from all of my Hawaii travel in that I now have the level of status on Hawaiian Airlines that lets me change my return flight without charge. So I moved my flight up a few days and changed hotels as Hella is staying with family. Hella makes a great guide because she knows all the good places to go. You can read more about our adventure yesterday in my personal blog today at this link: Things to Do After New Year's in Oahu.

Hope Everyone had a great 4th of July! We spent the 4th at the 68th Annual Kailua 4th of July Parade and Fireworks Independence Day Celebration. Kailua has always been a great place to enjoy 4th of July activities on Oahu and is the location of the only Independence Day Parade on Oahu. The Kailua festivities start with the Annual Kailua Independence Day Parade. Groups start lining up early at the North end of Kainalu Street, at Palapu Street, near Kainalu Elementary School. The parade usually starts at around 10:00 and fun groups with floats, cars, music, entertainment, etc. start heading down Kainalu Street. You can set up your lawn chairs anywhere along Kainalu Street to get a good spot. You will usually see local businesses, schools, politicials, civic groups, and others participate ...

My clients are ecstatic over their recent purchase of a home within less than a block of Lanikai Beach in Kailua. Homes near the beach in Kailua are hard to find. Especially ones like this.  This home has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathroooms, plus a detached cottage. On a huge lot (over 14,000 sq ft) there is plenty of room for even extended family. This Lanikai Beach home has a remodeled gourmet kitchen with upscale appliances and parking for 6 cars. Originally built in 1928, the home has undergone several additions and many remodels. It still retains some of the historic charm, with high ceilings and some beadboard detail, in some of the rooms. This home was originally listed at $1.5M, but with multiple offers on the first day of showing, it sold for $1.65M. The real estate market in Kailua, e...

This weekend I was invited to cousin Wendy's house in Kailua. When we arrived, there was a stand in the driveway that says: Mongoes $1 each. There was also a jar to leave your money, as in the "honor system". Wendy tells me she makes quite a bit of money, because at the store mangoes go for about $5.99/lb. "We do have people stopping by to bargain with me and, occasionally, I'll even sell them for less," she says, "but only if I have too many ripe ones at one time." And ripe they were this weekend. Her girls were trying to get them before they fell to the ground. When that happens, the fruit "explodes" into mush. And you certainly don't want to sit under the tree at this time. They also had fun taking the overripe ones and hurling them baseball style to the far corner of the garden to t...

This is a follow up to my article when this awesome property was first listed. There was one broker's open, and one open house and then 7 offers were presented to the Seller's. This was one of those transactions that was pleasurable. The Seller's were agreeable to all of my suggestions from start to finish. We met a month or so before and set our game plan. The seller decluttered, did some finishing touches on fixtures in the house, gave it a good cleaning inside and out, and finally staged it to sell. The Buyer's were pleasent, and the Buyer's agents were timely, competent, and gracious throughout the deal. I wish I had listings and transactions like this ALL DAY LONG, EVERY DAY, EVERY TIME! The asking price was $995,000 and the sold price was for $1,021,000. There was another offer th...

Coconut Grove is located in Kailua on the island of Oahu. It is in the heart of Kailua just blocks away from the beach which is the attraction for this community. It is also one of the most affordable areas in Kailua. The general median price range for Kailua is in the mid $800,000's and Coconut Grove's current median price range is $698,600. The homes are older, built in the 50's and 60's, and the lots are small as well. There are also some lots CPR'd which means that there may be two or more houses on one lot. This property was listed by Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties. It is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath property. 2034 square feet interior, 5502 exterior. Listed for $740,000. Sold for $730,000.

Commercial real estate in Kailua will never again be the same when the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation sells its commercial real estate portfolio, which is managed by Kanoehe Ranch.  These holdings were recently put on the market, according to the Pacific Business News, this morning. It is not yet known what the offer price for the Kailua real estate is, but it is my estimation that Kaneohe Ranch's holdings include about 3/4 of all Kailua commercial real estate, so the price will be in the hundreds of millions.  The Castle Foundation owns interests in the commercial real estate in downtown Kailua shopping centers where Whole Foods, Safeway, Foodland, Long's Drugs, Macy's and Times Market are located, among other areas and major tenants. The Kaneohe Ranch portfolio also includes interests ...
