Some guy who fancies himself a Sacramento home buyer just called me to talk about a home in Elk Grove. Yes, even on a Hawaiian vacation I pick up my calls. He doesn't seem to know much about the area, and he thought the home he was calling about was an REO because that's how Zillow classified it....

Even while in Hawaii, unpleasant things continue in my life. I am still struggling with my website; it's a never-ending story from last June. A few days ago, the website guys rolled back my site because they had made some sort of error, or inserted code where it should not have been, I dunno, but...

  The magnitude of who you really work for has a way of settling in, when you open up USA Today and see one of the properties that your brokerage manages, not only on that list, but it is number 4 on that list!

This cottage for sale across the street from the beach is the le...

A new listing released today at Mauna Lani Terrace looks priced to sell at $1,695,000.  I say it is "priced to sell" because (1) it is a coveted third floor "penthouse", as were all three of the Mauna Lani Terrace condos sold so far in 2011, and (2) it is priced very close to where the two bedroo...

Our only Big Island movie theaters are in the "big cities" of Kailua Kona and Hilo, but the Kohala Coast resorts have the distinction of hosting the annual Big Island Film Festival, which comes to a close this evening.  In its earlier years it took place at the Waikoloa Beach Resort hotels and Qu...

Thank goodness for a new listing at Villages at Mauna Lani!  When I saw the new listing, I felt like saying "and baby makes three!"  Until Wednesday of this week, the only two choices were not ones that would work for most Villages buyers, and certainly not for the buyer I was scheduling appointm...

It is rare that I would blog about Wai'ula'ula condos for sale twice in one week, but for the third time in three years we are suddenly seeing a feeding frenzy of activity at this Mauna Kea Resort complex. To recap, on Monday I reported trying to show a Wai'ula'ula new REO (bank-owned after forec...

A new condo REO (foreclosure) at Wai'ula'ula at Mauna Kea Resort came on the market last Friday at $869,900. That is exactly the same price the last foreclosure in the luxury complex sold for in February.  Perhaps it therefore should not be surprising that when I tried to show it yesterday I was ...

As predicted in my January post, the REO (foreclosure) at the Wai'ula'ula condos at the Mauna Kea Resort went quickly into escrow...and the other unit I mentioned as the top pick, A202, is also under contract.  New to the market since then is N201, tied for the lowest priced Wai'ula'ula villa cur...

Although I live only 30 minutes away, I spent my birthday weekend relaxing in a condo at the Fairways at Mauna Lani Resort.  One of the best things about living on the Big Island is how easy it is to take a mini-vacation and escape!  Over the course of the past year or so I've camped here in Nort...

Because the initial sales at both complexes took place at the peak of the market, the developers had to reduce their prices over the past few ...
