Tracy and I are very proud to announce the recent closing of our listing – the Mahana #608 at 97% of the original asking price. This was more than just a real estate transaction – it was about our father and son team having the privilege to help two wonderful families, Jerry and Delores “Duane” Toussaint (the sellers) and Ron and Margorie Danz (the buyers), with bringing their families together, helping them move in new directions, and making new friends in the process.
The Toussaint Ohana -The Sellers
Jerry and Duane had this to share about their experience of the Stice Team listing and selling their condo:
“We met with the Stice Team after our previous listing with a different brokerage firm expired – being on the market over a year. We were impressed with the refreshing and innovative nature of this father/son team, and the plan that they laid out in front of us.
They demonstrated what exactly they were going to do to market the property, how they were going to exclusively promote and protect our interests above all else, and how it was their goal to have the property in escrow by Christmas. We went back home to Omaha in early November shaking our heads and thinking to ourselves that there was no way The Stice Team was going to have our unit in escrow by Christmas.
With this being said, we were extremely pleased with the way that our property was marketed, all of the effort being put forth, and the international exposure that it was receiving. The presentation of the property was as good as we could have possibly asked for utilizing professional photography, videography, and top notch marketing expertise.
They built a custom website for the property (www.Mahana608.info) and created beautiful print marketing that drove enormous traffic to this site. They also built a web page for us that gave us exclusive access to see exactly what was taking place in real time on the property: marketing, showing feedback, open houses, etc.
There was never any doubt on exactly what they were doing. They presented us with 3 different offers and helped us negotiate the price, terms, and conditions of the strongest offer. We are extremely pleased that the Stice Team fulfilled their commitments and we are set to close escrow to an all cash buyer that our agents directly procured as subsequent to their efforts.
We are very satisfied with their professional services, they did exactly what they said they were going to do, and we couldn’t have asked for a better presentation of our property. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in selling their unit at the Mahana.Please feel free to contact us at 402-445-0704 to verify this.”
What it Meant For the Toussaints
Although it was very difficult for them to let go of this home that had been in their family’s hands for over 30 years – they are still able to visit Maui and stay in this unit for the next 5 years as this was part of the agreement with the buyers.
With the proceeds of this sale, the our team assisted them with a 1031 Exchange purchase and of a new home for their son in Virginia, we negotiated with the builder in Virginia to ensure the Toussaints got exactly what they wanted in the home and that as much of their tax deferred dollars as possible were wrapped up into improvements and upgrades on the home.
With the additional proceeds from the sale, Jerry and Duane are in the process of building a brand new ranch-style dream home in Omaha, NE . As was shared with us in our initial meeting with the Toussaints that this was their ultimate goal in that it allows them to have their daughter and grand-daughter all under the same roof together as family, a fine hale for the ohana as we would say 🙂 Tracy and I couldn’t be more pleased for these people who truly understand the spirit of ohana and aloha; there is no question that they will always cary Maui heavy in their hearts and Maui will miss them in return.
The Danz Ohana – The Buyers
Upon first meeting Ron and Margie (owners of 2 other Mahana units) at one of my first open houses, I instantly knew that, besides them likely being the perfect buyers for Mahana #608, these were extremely good, family oriented people of very high integrity.
When discussing buying beachfront real estate in Maui, Jeremy and the Danz Ohana recommend that you leave your “slippahs in da sand” and let that silky Hawaiian sand run through your toes and feel the mana of the ocean tune your all senses and invigorate your soul.
I remember it being a pretty awesome experience talking to Ron, Margie, and their pregnant daughter out on Airport Beach, toes in the sand and water, about the possibility of them buying this unit, so that when their daughter gave birth they would have more room for everyone to spread out at the Mahana. Through our negotiations we were able to put together a contract that worked for both parties while solely representing the Toussaints as our seller clients and treating the Danz’s as a customer buyer.
Here is what Ron and Margie had to say about their experience in working with Jeremy:
“I am very pleased to recommend Jeremy Stice due to the high quality representation recieved from him in our recent real estate purchase. My wife and I met Jeremy at one of the first open houses that he held at Mahana #608 . We were both very impressed with the professional way in which he presented the property to us. In addition, as we worked through the purchase process we found him to posses the highest standards of honesty and integrity.
It was a very pleasurable experience in working with him on all phases of our recent deal. In addition to the excellent and professional job he did on our transaction, we have come to regard him as a friend and value our relationship with him. We are pleased to be working with Jeremy on other real estate acquisitions and also very pleased to count he and his family as friends.”
Congratulations to the Danz Ohana! We are looking forward to many years of enjoying the Ka’anapali Life with you all.
