Last Tuesday (Feb 15) I heard from a buyer client who'd made unsuccessful offers on several Kohala Coast condos during their visit last year.  He's coming back next month and still looking for a screaming deal.  "If you were to pick the 3 best at Mauna Lani what would they be?" he asked. I named ...
