I went to Costco yesterday around noon and was amazed at the traffic.  Isn't there a recession going on?  You wouldn't know it by hanging out here.  I drove into the parking lot and found dozens of cars driving around looking for spots. Eventually I gave up and went shopping for other items at Ho...

Low priced listings get a lot of attention from buyers and for good reason.  Hawaii real estate prices are higher than prices in other states and people rightfully try and find something they consider affordable.  Here are some properties that people often find on the internet, along with explana...

I watched the election results last night and in the early evening (Hawaii time) John McCain made his concession speech in Arizona.  I was surprised at his humble and kind words for Barack Obama and his call to his supporters to support our president-elect. Here are some quotes from his speech la...

I just got a call from (another) telemarketing company today. He starts off, "This is Daniel from Netbiz.com on behalf of Google.com.  Do you want to be on the first page of Google permanently?" Of course I do!  Did I tell him that?  No.  I said "I'm not going to pay you for that."  He said, "Oka...

If you haven't been up Diamond Head Trail, it's a great hike!  You'll have to try it sometime - just don't try it until after November 20, 2008.  On October 20th, the State of Hawaii closed the trail for repairs. The trail was built during World War II for defense purposes.  The steep terrain mak...

Any tips on getting associates? Also, if anybody out there has prospective buyers and sell...

Today my buyer closed on a townhouse in Aiea.  It was a short sale, listed for $366,000 and she bought it for $300,000.  Price-wise, it was a heck of a good deal!  Three bedrooms, two and a half baths, 1,300 square feet interior and two parking stalls. The place does need cosmetic work though.  T...

My Scion Xb is holding up nicely and customers love it.  It also takes time to clean it up each time we go house hunting - generally at least once a week.  I've been looking for a truck or station wagon for those tasks that get the car dirty - like surfing and taking the dogs for a ride. One of t...

I've noticed a trend lately and it's a good one for buyers.  We go out, look at homes, the buyer thinks about it and the homes are still on the market!  Only the most appealing homes are selling quickly.  I define appeal as a combination of the home's condition and it's price. Many mainland marke...

Are you into social networking?  I'm slowly learning about the subject to increase my online presence to homebuyers and sellers.  Recently, a friend from another island sent me an invite to join Tagged.com.  It seemed innocent enough, like joining Facebook or MySpace.  I followed the link and wen...
