It has been a historic year for real estate in Hawaii. Buyer demand, tight housing inventory, and historically low interest rates have all combined to create a very robust market. A market that has shattered expectations. Working from home has gained momentum, and the lure of living in paradise continues to draw mainland buyers to our island state. Additionally, the largest generation in history — the Millennials — are making their mark on our real estate market. It truly has been an incredible year, both in sales volume and transactional volume. Suffice it to say that we’ve been busy. Very busy. For the first time in our company’s history, we closed the year as the leading residential real estate brokerage in Hawaii. We’re excited and proud of our team, but our work is not done.
Working with Momentum
Momentum is great, but momentum can also be messy. Even when things are going well and moving in the right direction, there are lessons to learn. Problems to solve. And, work to do. We recognize that to do our best work, we need to work on improving our performance. Simply put, we need to commit to even better processes, systems, and service. We’re proud of what our team has accomplished, but not satisfied. We want to improve upon what works and optimize the traction that we have, so that we can better serve our clients, our customers, our communities, and our state.
Commitment to Hard Work & Curiosity
As we reflect on 2021 and look forward to 2022, we do so with a commitment to hard work and with an abundance of curiosity. We realize that we learn the most when we ask why. Why are we succeeding? Why are we experiencing traction and gaining market share? When we understand the why behind our successes, we discover our strengths and focus more on doing the things we do well. And, that’s exactly what we want — to do things well for you, our clients, and our customers.
Fueled by Initiative
Do you believe that initiative is contagious? We do, and it is our obsession with what we do, where we live, and who we serve that drives our initiative. Initiative has fueled our creative work, transformed our ideas into positive results, and has positioned us as a leader in the real estate industry.
So, here’s to initiative and to more work to do in 2022! We are just getting started.
