WEST MAUI – The Best of the Best just got better, and life is extraordinary. James Harris and Mischelle Lawrence are not only longtime residents of Maui (nearly 40 years) but are some of the most blessed people in the world for many reasons.

One of the most important is to live on Maui and be in a business we love: selling real estate in what is still a buyer’s market, if for no other reason than the outstanding low interest rates still available.

Many properties for sale are priced in relationship to where appraised values are with motivated sellers. We are not seeing bank-owned or short sale properties the way we had in the past. In most areas with an active real estate market throughout the United States, sales prices are firming and actually starting to go up – in some areas over 10 to 15 percent compared to six years ago.

It is no secret that Maui is one of the most special places, not only in the U.S. but in the world. This is why over the past years we have seen many savvy international buyers come into the Maui real estate market. The chance to own where some of the world’s finest beaches are paired with exceptional golfing and world-class resorts, spas and dining right at your finger tips make it a must to have Maui a part of your real estate portfolio.

Many condominium properties have outstanding vacation management opportunities that not only provide topnotch services, but also can help owners offset their cost of ownership through vacation rentals. This is the perfect way to get your foot in the door to own Maui real estate. The options are limitless. From a bungalow on the golf course to a oceanfront suite at the Ritz, the time to invest could not be better.

We would love to help you find the perfect property. Having been in the business for nearly 30 years, we are very familiar with a tremendous variety of properties that work for different individuals’ wants and needs. The best of the best for 2014 just got better! These are just a few properties with very good potential to come.

Kaanapali Shores is tried and true. Many satisfied clients have bought not only one but often times a second property in Kaanapali Shores, once they realize how efficiently the oceanfront resort filled with amenities operates. Prices in Kaanapali Shores start at $275,000 LH and $399,000 FS.

Maui Eldorado is located on the famous Kaanapali North Golf Course with access to a private beach cabana. Maui Eldorado is one of the older and very well-maintained condominium low-rise properties in Kaanapali. Prices start at $215,000 LH.

The Whaler at Kaanapali Beach has always been world famous as a destination resort. Location, Location, Location! Right next door to Whalers Village, there is a variety of floor plans available, with prices of one-bedroom floor plans starting at $675,000 and efficiency units starting at $649,000.

If it is another type of property you have interest in, such as residential, land or time interval ownership, we would be happy to discuss that with you further as well.
