Real Estate Broker/Owner - Sold on Kauai Realty - RB-18142



Aloha, Although the first day of fall isn't until September 22, for all intents and purposes the summer selling season has come to an end with a whimper! Yes a whimper! Sure we had some sales but not nearly enough to even begin to consider this a hot summer season. Buyers continue to stand on the...
Aloha, It's been a relatively slow week which is reflected in the rather sparse condo update this week. There's been a few showings here and there but by and large, it seems like things have quieted down as we approach the end of summer. So much for a hot summer market! The reality is that the ma...
Aloha, Welcome to the July Market Statistics update. Real estate continues to lag as we head into the last month of summer, which hasn't turned into the hot market everyone hoped for.

However, there are some properties that are so competatively priced that I'm really surprised they are not in ...
Aloha, What is it like to catch the bus in your neighborhood? For me, even the walk to the bus stop from my condo in Princeville was spectacular. Here is a shot of the rainbow as seen across the golf course as I walked along Ka Haku to the bus stop on Kuhio Highway across from the library..Not to...
Aloha, It was another beautiful week in Paradise but not many buyers seem moved to want to jump into the market. While we do have some new escrows and one that went under contract, we have not seen the number of buyers expected what with the many great buys on the market. There's something for ev...
