Here is my cheery New Year's Eve message today. As Hella Rothwell and I gaze from our balcony at the ocean and Diamond Head from our top floor room at the Halekulani.It constantly astonishes me when agents display such stupid behavior in the name of building business for themselves and that they ...
When one imagines a scenery of green hills rolling on the horizon into infinity, dotted with seemingly perfectly aligned rows of grapes, one may not often conjur up an image of a volcano in that same frame. However, when I stopped to consider that the defining factors of wine is based in part on ...
People of all ages can visit the steam vents at Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. It's got the typical raised deck walkways with railings to protect you from falling into the steam vents. There is a lot to see along the way, too. From the tall grasses with shallow root systems to the wildflowers, ...
Hard to believe that prior to 2018, the last big eruption from the volcano Kilauea on the Big Island happened 35 years ago. At that point in my life I was completely engrossed in selling real estate in Newport Beach (southern California). I do not recall listening to music or even watching televi...

One of the perks of being in Hawaii around Christmas-time is my phone rarely rings. But not this year, for some reason. Why aren't people with their families celebrating? Why are they calling real estate agents? Well, maybe it's the eggnog. Or, maybe it's a sheer desire to buy a home, which can h...
A while back on Active Rain there was a MeMe of sorts going around in which one of the questions was do you believe in ghosts. That seemed like such an odd question to ask. Interesting, but odd. Like, we all know how Fox Mulder would probably answer that question. But some people are also very su...
Since the eruptions stopped, no outside visitors or tourists have been allowed into Leilani Estates to view Fissure 8. The only way to view this famous location up until now has been via helicopter or boat. By boat, you're just seeing the backside of it. And neighbors, understandably, find the no...
Ya gotta love the buyer agents who think they know everything about your listing, seller intentions and how they would market, yet they really know only what they want.
