 Like many homes that were built of wood way back in the 50s, Don the Beachcomber's Tree House at the International Market Place in Waikiki needed work.

If you haven't been to Honolulu recently, you probably won't recognize it especially with all the changes in the last couple of years or so. We hear about retailers shutting down brick & mortar stores all across the United States because online purchasing has skyrocketed. People don't go shopping...

My daughter, their mom, did the driving so we could travel between the real world and the virtual world, blowin...
 Here I am in Hawaii looking out over the beautiful Honolulu Country Club, 10 minutes from downtown, and maybe 20 minutes from the beach. What am I doing here when it's absolutely beautiful everywhere out there? Working away in my Honolulu real estate office taking care of clients in Hawaii and C...
 Another one of my regular clients contacted me this morning itching to get their property on the market. By the way, that was at 6AM her time in California, 4AM my time in Hawaii. And by 8AM California time, I had someone over there evaluating the condition of the home which is vacant. Yes, even...
For the second day, my clients and I went out looking at luxury condos in Honolulu. One of the criterias was a dynamite view and we found a few.
