Things are Happening again. The Iao Parksides are selling and starting to open new escrows. There are some real nice units that have sold or went pending. It's nice to see starter level homes continue to close. Central Maui is starting to see a realization of right pricing and appropriate listing prices. I have seen less over priced homesand more evenly priced homes in Wailuku and Kahului. Nice to see that folks are accepting the change of this market. Mahalo

I am getting two different listing in Kahului, Maui Hawaii. Both will be priced bellow market prices @ $399,000 Both of them are fixer uppers. One is a 8000 square foot lot 3 bedroom 1 bathroom. The other is a 11500 square foot lot 3 bedroom 1 bath. Both need some TLC. Yet the price and location are very good.

Maui is having first Fridays like Oahu now. The (1st) First Friday was a huge success. My band played at Gallerie Ha and the Maui News gave us front page coverage on October 6th 2007 Saturday morning news. How cool is that? Looks like there will be more first Fridays coming up. Mahalo for your support.Jeffery http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2326/1518417542_d64a499526_m.jpg

All so quite on the Pacific Front! I worked the phones in the office three days in row we have 100 agents and 64 listings. Not One phone call about a purchase. Very quiet these days. I will be working open house in Wailuku and Lahaina this weekend. Now is a great time to just enjoy life and do what makes you happy, more then ever. I have band practice tonight that is something I have loved since I was a child. My first band was with my two brothers I was 6 years old. Besides all this I just keep working and making the best out of real estate work. I did close 538 Kamehameha Ave yesterday. Sold at $510,00 more about that later. Mahalo and AloHa-Ha-Ha
