For Kohala Coast real estate buyers ready to step outside the resorts and contemplate building a fine home on a vacant lot in a nearby gated community, Kohala By the Sea is often the first choice. Among its attractions: proximity to beaches and resort amenities, plus the "town" amenities of nearb...
We've had several clients trying to buy one of the distressed properties for sale at Wai'ula'ula, the luxury 3 bedroom condominium project at the Mauna Kea Resort.  With beautiful finishes and sweeping views of the Kohala Coast, not to mention a nicely appointed fitness area and pool, Wai'ula'ula...
I've written before that Waikii Ranch on Saddle Road just outside of Waimea (Kamuela) is the absolute top choice in Big Island real estate for the buyer wanting equestrian facilities.  Truly, there are more serious horse owners per square mile in Waikii than any other gated community in Hawaii!  ...
Love the idea of the upcountry paniolo ranching lifestyle but don't like the cold winter wind whipping into Waimea (Kamuela) from snow-capped Mauna Kea? Want big ocean views and year-round sunsets but not the resort lifestyle?  Forget about Waikii Ranch or Kohala Ranch and try Puakea Ranch near H...
Just when it looked as if all the short sale opportunities at the Halii Kai condos at Waikoloa Beach Resort were gone, two of the buyers had to cancel. Halii Kai 16G, three bedroom three bath townhouse style with ocean view had lender approval at below the $750,000 asking price (with buyer to pay...
For the past two years, residents of the Kapaau and Hawi area have been blessed with a fitness facility created in an old service station building.  We enjoyed the circuit, cardio equipment, Zumba classes and yoga.  But with the continued weak economy, even some of the most enthusiastic members f...
Amazingly, I still get inquirires off my blog post from a year ago about the first REO properties listed at Halii Kai condominiums on the Kohala Coast (one was oceanfront 13A and the other ocean view 16C).  I now have met the new owners of both of those properties, and both profess to be very hap...
Today was a day both sweet and bittersweet:  I handed the keys to a very happy young couple who are first time homebuyers here in Kapaau in North Kohala, knowing that I had saved an older and wiser couple from foreclosure, although not from the loss of their home.  The buyers had made two unsucce...
Last Saturday night over 400 members of the North Kohala (Hawi and Kapa'au) communities attended the annual fundraiser for the Kohala Hospital Charitable Foundation at the gorgeous oceanfront spa estate property, the Hawaii Island Retreat Center or Ahu Pohaku Hoomaluhia. I counted over a dozen re...
After a few sales of Kolea condominiums (that fabulous beachfront Kohala Coast property) where prices ticked up after previous distress sale levels, we suddenly find ourselves today with a new short sale and a new REO (bank-owned foreclosure). Starting with the top, Kolea 10F is a penthouse unit ...
