There are currently two opportunities listed in North Kohala to buy over 100 acres of vacant land, each of which is already well through the process of subdivision into smaller parcels. Both listings bear the address “Akoni Pule Highway” as they stretch from near the main road towards the ocean. The 118.94 acres for sale [...]
Welcome to Historic Kohala Sign and Visitor Center We are well into the last quarter with less than 2 months left in the year and things are looking up in Kapaau and Hawi Town. What will 2013 look like as far as the real estate market goes? Let’s look at last year (2011), per the [...]
We just previewed this beautiful home (MLS# 254095) in the Kohala By The Sea subdivision. This home sits at the highest elevation in the Kohala By The Sea subdivision above all the others, and the open floor plan brings the outside in for true resort living. The location provides the home with a sweeping ocean [...]
Most of the entry level and moderately priced homes for sale in rural North Kohala are plantation-era homes clustered along the main streets: Akoni Pule Highway, Hawi Rd., Kynnersley Road.

Real estate buyers who have looked elsewhere on the Big Island—Kailua Kona or Waikoloa Village for example—often get sticker shock when they fall in love with Hawi-Kapaau in North Kohala.
One of the best things about traveling is the opportunity to connect and reconnect with colleagues all over the world. Being in San Francisco last week for the Inman Connect conference (#icsf)—offered the opportunity to reconnect with some established friends and colleagues, and network with some new ones!
