Aloha, There always seems to be one controversy or another going on regarding development on Kauai and the latest involves Princeville. Last night there was a "not well publicized" neighborhood meeting in Princeville with Jeff Stone as the speaker. You may know Stone as the individual who heads u...

Aloha, It's been interesting week weather wise and a productive one in terms of real estate. Starting with the weather: it's been pretty much a mixed bag this week, with some rain, some sun and cooler temperatures (or at least what we call "cooler temperatures!") Friday the State closed schools e...

Aloha, It's continued to be a fairly wet and windy week with Saturday the only day with bright blue skies and no rain. It was good to see buyers out and about looking at property while I was out showing with my clients. These buyers know there are good bargains to be had if you only ask. Here is ...

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou! In other words, Happy New Year. We've been having a pretty wet winter so far, at least up here on the North Shore. It's fun to watch wave after wave of rain come in off the ocean. It's almost like it's prepackaged. You see it coming, then you hear it travel over the condo ro...

Aloha, The end of the year draws near as we count down the days until 2009. 2008 was certainly interesting and brought many great opportunities for real estate ownership. Thank you to all of those who allowed me to assist them in buying their dream home or in selling their property so they could ...

Aloha, Finally, we have a bright sunny day today. This past week is one where I've felt sorry for the visitors. After all, they come for the balmy trades, warm sun and bright blue skies but by and large, that was not the case last week. Although there were periods of sunshine, the days basically ...

Aloha, This week ended as a wet one, with our first big winter storm slamming into the Island, causing flooding, road closures and flash flood warnings. The storm was Island wide with an average of 4 to 6 inches per hour of rain falling over most of the Island, with as much as 8 to 10 inches in s...

Aloha, It looks like the developer of Nihilani condos is finally getting competative with the resales. In other words, Brookfield is getting real. Case in point: Nihilani 33A, a three bedroom, two and a half bath townhouse style condo listed by Brookfield for $731,500 closed on 12-08 at the unbel...

Aloha, We've had glorious weather this past week. It's the kind of stuff that makes people immediately fall in love with the Island and never want to leave. Bright blue skies, a few puffy clouds now and again and a nice cool breeze. Yes, we do love that cool breeze coupled with the warmth of the ...

Unlike Poipu Condominiums that experienced a 35% spike from 2004 to 2006, Princeville's Mean Sales Price increase has been more gradual. Consequently, the back-pedaling of equity values in the Princeville condominium market, therefore, shows statistically a much less less-dramatic contraction. T...

Aloha, Winter most definitely showed its face yesterday in the form of a huge afternoon downpour that lasted off and on into the evening. I was at the stable riding, and had just gotten off my horse when the rain started. By the time I left there, I was soaked through and through and there were s...

Now that's something to be excited and happy about. Here is your update...

Here's a reblog of a post written by my new broker, Matt Beall, which i think makes a good point about October Sales Results of the Kauai Real Estate market. Of course, just as I was taking a flight on Monday night i met a golfer who told me his buddy fell in love with a home in Hanalei Bay and s...

Aloha, Hope everyone enjoyed a Happy Halloween and that you and your kids are not bouncing off the walls from a sugar overload. As for the market, it is STILL a good time to buy. Why do I say this now? Because buyers seem to be circling the wagons around potential purchases without ever really do...
