"Taking dreams to reality"
I like to think of myself as the Ambassador to Kapolei, Hawaii. This website endeavors to offer quality information about the Kapolei and Ko Olina communities for visitors and residents alike.
You'll find links for the Leeward area Community Info/Links, Multiple Listing Searches (MLS)in my specialized market Kapolei & Ko Olina MLS, or access to my MLS service to build your own custom searches for Honolulu, the North shore, Ewa Plain or the Kaneohe and Kailua side of the island. Search MLS.
You might also find the link Fractional/Interval very interesting if you've wondered about an alternative to vacation rentals or timeshares. Fractional home ownership in Hawaii is perfect for people who want to have extended stays in Hawaii each year.
As the Kapolei Ambassador, I'm proud to offer my services to you. If you are contemplating purchasing or selling a home in Oahu's second city, I'd welcome the opportunity to explain my proactive approach to the real estate marketplace. Questions will not go unanswered and suggestions or ideas on how to improve this website are welcomed and hoped for. Whether you are interested in the tranquil lagoons and beaches of Ko Olina, real estate investments in our tropical paradise or just fun things to do on Oahu... make yourself at home and explore!
Full Service Representation
The cornerstone of my business has always been to learn exactly what your hopes and dreams are, and to then help you find a way to reach them. I believe that a REALTOR is a true advocate of their clients and that the agents role is to add value through their knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills resulting in a smoothe transaction. I believe in proactive representation, assertive negotiation and productive risk management in the form of inspections, research and attention to details.
Services for sellers
I have earned the elite designation of Certified Distress Property Expert (CPDE) which involves both training and membership in an Organization that is dedicated to working with homeowners who require additional assistance due to our everchanging market. My marketing my listings is proactive and innovative and have been extremely successful in a market that some describe as down. My experience has been that this is the best market I've ever been involved in. I will prepare a complete marketing plan for you in writing with a written guarantee of what I will do for you and when. Depending on your circumstances, my approach is determine what I believe your best approach might be and to present it to you in an understandable and meaningful presentation.

I am more than happy to come by and listen to your questions and give you my thoughts. This is the best way I've found to approach my business. If you'd like to be contacted by me, choose Consultation and we can make arrangements to meet and discuss your options.
Services for buyers and investors
As a buyer, I think your greatest asset is information and computers are a great resource for that. To get started, automatically receive personalized MLS listings by e-mail. Early each morning I (and my trusty processor) will search the local MLS and find the homes that match your criteria and notify you immediately with the latest listing information!! Simply choose [Dream Home Finder] and fill in the requested information. Or, if you prefer, prepare your search yourself at Search MLS. If you like, you may save those searches for your convenience and return as often as you like and feel free to save as many of your custom searches as you like.
Fractional and Interval Ownership
A new and expanding part of the Hawaiian real estate market is Fractional ownership. This is perfect for people who want to have a special place to go to for a few months of the year without the cost of owning it year round. Buy a condo on the beach or a beach front estate for literally a fraction of the cost. Prices range from less than $100,000 to as much as $2 million per fraction depending upon the property. Give me a call and we'll see if this would make sense for you and your family. For some examples of fractional properties that are available, explore this link. Fractional/Interval
A little about me
I've been a REALTOR for over 20 years now and during my career I have been licensed in Colorado, Kansas and Hawaii. During my career, I have been personally involved in over 1,500 transactions and take a great amount of pride in the fact that I've been a trusted and vital part of each of those transactions.
After vacationing in Hawaii for several years, our family decided to move from Kansas to Oahu and to live in paradise and we have never looked back! We currently live in the Ko Olina Resort and Marina, which offers some of the most peaceful beaches on the island with world class amenities and is only 3 miles from Kapolei and 20 miles from Honolulu. 5 star resorts, a championship golf course and miles of walking trails along the 4 protected lagoons take our breath away every day. Top it all off with the most beautiful marina in Hawaii to enjoy sailing, fishing, snorkeling and diving and you have "paradise found".
When I'm not working with clients, I love to explore with my wife, Victoria and our 11 year old son, John. We enjoy taking our boat out for adventures, exploring the islands, hiking around some of the great trails on Oahu, adding to my weblog, KapoleiToday or just enjoying old friends and making new ones.
