Ask any long-term Maui resident where they would want to live and they will most likely answer Kula. Beautiful views, rich soil, and fresh clean air – what’s not to love? The Land You can watch the sun set between Maui and Lanai and look down upon Wailea (no pun intended) while the glare comes […]
Many people that I have come across know that there are shows on TV that feature Hawaii. There is no show better than our Hawaii Life series on HGTV. Being on the show, I have run into people that know me from my episode, know the concept, know all the other episodes, but aren’t really […]
Looking at the above chart, you can see Hawaii is above the 2008 peak. We are up 16% in Hawaii!! Whoo Hoo!!
“What is it like to live in Waimea?” I get asked this question a lot because friends and clients know that I’ve spent nearly my entire life living in this area of the Big Island. I have been very fortunate to have grown up playing on the beaches along the Kohala Coast and living amongst […]
