Kaneohe real estate....where town meets country.

Friday, October 17th, 2014 at 10:18am. 3458 Views, 0 Comments.

      Sometimes when you think of real estate on Oahu, you may think....Honolulu, big city, traffic, high rise buildings galore, etc. (Or maybe you're thinking grass huts and splitting open coconuts for breakfast. By the way, if this is you, then you REALLY need to visit Oahu!) But there is a special place that is sometimes overlooked by many people when thinking about real estate ....Kaneohe!

kaneohe3_900 

      Its close proximity to the H-3, the Likelike highway, and the Pali highway make it super convenient for anyone to commute into town, the west side, Pearl Harbor or the east side. And the best part about Kaneohe real estate is that you can get away from it all, have a home that has amazing views of the jagged peaks of the Ko'Olau mountains, even…

Summer Peaks and Autumn Dips

Monday, September 15th, 2014 at 11:44am. 310 Views, 0 Comments.

The median sales price for single family homes started off this year just under 630k in January. It hit a year high this summer at 700k in June. Last month it, dipped again to 650k. 

2014 Median Sales Prices on Oahu SFH

Year Low: January ($629,500)
Year High: June ($700,000)
Last Month: August ($650,000)  


What accounts for the dip? A slight drop in real estate activity after the busy summer months is to be expected. Buyers with families typically aim to get settled into a new home before the school year starts. In the last three years, median prices on single family homes took a dip in autumn before rising again in the winter. This trend can be seen in the chart below:

JUST LISTED: 5366 Manauwea St. MLS: 201413580

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 at 3:30pm. 6502 Views, 0 Comments.

We are excited to list this beautifully remodeled, ocean-view home in Aina Haina, East Honolulu. Aina Haina is one of the most coveted areas on the island for its proximity to both downtown Honolulu and South Shore beach living. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath corner lot offers 2,414 sf living space and was completely renovated this year. Some newly renovated houses can feel too fancy to be lived in comfortably, but that's not the case with this gorgeous Aina Haina property. The sophistication of this house is impossible to miss, while the choices in aesthetics make it warm enough to feel like home.

The wood tones of the cabinets compliment the flooring help to create an open and inviting kitchen. Other new features include granite countertops and brand new…

Sold for $799,000 in Coconut Grove, Kailua.

Friday, July 4th, 2014 at 8:46am. 1020 Views, 0 Comments.

A newer home in Coconut Grove is a rare find. Remodeled in 2007, this 2100+ sf Kailua property is just a short bike ride to the beach (a huge selling point for the buyer). Duplexes can share a lot of wall space with the neighboring unit, but this home is only minimally attached at a storage shed between garages. 

This was a great deal for our clients considering the amount of interior living space in Kailua's Coconut Grove. The property also has a covered two-car garage and a lush, spacious backyard with tropical foliage. We're happy to have helped our clients find and purchase their new Kailua home.

A variety of tropical palms on both sides of the property greet you upon arrival. The common wall is on the storage shed to the right of…

Thanks to Honolulu Magazine and the Ward research team for naming me as one of 2014's Best in Real Estate. bestrealestate2014   The selection process was purely editorial; no one was able to buy his or her way onto the list.

  The list represent the top 6 percent of professionals licensed in Hawaii.

Why Buy In Kaimuki?

Sunday, May 25th, 2014 at 5:56am. 1088 Views, 0 Comments.

While there are several great neighborhoods on Oahu, some are simply more well-known than others. What that means to buyers and sellers is that certain prime locations go virtually unnoticed. 

One of these such neighborhoods is Kaimuki. Situated near two luxury areas, Diamond Head and Kahala, Kaimuki is just a ten-minute drive to Waikiki and fifteen minutes from downtown Honolulu. 

Recent data suggests that sellers have been recognizing value in Kaimuki that many buyers have not. Those who do buy in Kaimuki end up with an overlooked, high-value gem. 

The average listing price in Kaimuki as of April 2014 is the highest it's been in 3 years at $1,087,714. The average sale price, however has DROPPED since the beginning of the year…

Friday, May 23rd, 2014 at 6:36am. 12582 Views, 0 Comments.

We just opened escrow on this beautiful $1.295m pool home in Hawaii Kai. Located in Kealaula Kai, a neighborhood that many are not familiar with, that is just behind Anchorage.  It has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a huge covered lanai, on an 8793 square foot lot.    With a beautiful tile pool, hot tub, sauna, and this amazing outdoor living space, this home is a great example of the great properties Hawaii Kai has to offer.    2_400 Notice the photovoltaic panels on the roof?  This home has 40 of them, which allows the owner to live nearly off the grid. Year round sun here means solar power is the way to go!
   Outdoor living is just as important in Hawaii as indoor space, since the average temperature is above 70 degrees all year. Check out this…

8 ways Hawaii real estate is different from the mainland

Monday, April 21st, 2014 at 7:38pm. 7784 Views, 0 Comments.

As I begin this, I would like to remind my readers that I'm referring mainly to the island of Oahu. 
-Insulation/HVAC    The first difference would be that homes are not made to withstand low temperatures like on the mainland. The lowest temperature I've heard about happening here was about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The lowest temperature that I've actually felt while living here in my nearly 3 years, is about 70, and let me tell you, that's cold when you're used to 78-83 degrees everyday. With that being said, there is no reason to insulate a home here. There are also very few homes with central HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems. You would only see this in a newer home/subdivision and/or a condominium complex with limited air…
