Call Mischelle Lawrence and James M. Harris when you are ready to buy or sell.

WEST MAUI – Residents of Maui for nearly 40 years and selling Maui real estate for about that long, Jim and Mischelle are anxious to share their knowledge with you. The real estate market is robust and certainly has turned the corner. There are many more sales happening compared with last year at this time, and many properties up in sales prices as much as 10 percent or more. We are happy to provide you with detailed statistics on properties that are of interest to you.

Properties that have been extremely active include The Maui Eldorado. Truly a treasure in Kaanapali Resort, this is a property like no other with golf cart service to and from the beach, under cover parking, exquisite, mature grounds and many amenities on the Kaanapali Golf Course and beach. Apartment A-208 shows pride of ownership and has not been in a rental program. Enjoy the ocean view from the tranquil lanai (patio) area across the classic Royal Kaanapali Golf Course. This unit is easy to view and priced to sell at $247,000 LH with a 10 percent ownership in the land. Also available at Maui Eldorado is another studio unit, E-206, one of the best locations for a studio apartment. The views are excellent of the ocean and golf course. Located close to one of the three peaceful swimming pools, this is a must-see as well, priced at $255,000 LH, also with a 10 percent ownership of fee. H-204, a pinnacle location, has been remodeled to a two-bedroom configuration with an upgraded kitchen, bath countertops and flooring. Sold completely furnished, this is a must-see priced at $315,000 LH with 10 percent fee ownership.

If your dream is to build, land is still priced so incredibly well – way off the prices of years ago, when Lanikeha, Kaanapali’s newest residential neighborhood, was originally offered. This beautiful half-acre lot is special, as it is close to the resort for great views, and it is also across from a lot that is twice its size. This will ensure great views for the person who designs a home for 267 Anapuni Loop. There is a 22-foot difference between the peak of roof elevation of the acre lot below this lot, which further ensures for spectacular resort, golf course and ocean views, with the island of Lanai and sunsets as the backdrop. A one-of-a-kind neighborhood with so many amenities, one has to visit the property to truly appreciate what living close to heaven is really all about. We are happy to give you your own private showing of this property seven days a week. The seller has priced this significantly under original developer prices, and this stellar lot can be purchased at $750,000.

If farming is in your blood, there couldn’t be a better place to do it than at “The Jewel of the Pacific.” It’s an agricultural-zoned property planted with many mature trees and centrally located in Olowalu Town, about 20 minutes from Lahaina, Kahului, Wailuku or Kihei. 80 Kalai Place is without question the best lot in Olowalu Mauka. Flanked by the river valley to the south and the majestic West Maui Mountains and Olowalu Valley in the back, this private, peaceful property offers views like no other of the beautiful blue Pacific, with whales frolicking in the foreground and the most tropical sunset in the background. There is a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage, along with out buildings, that is aggressively priced on 1.65 acres at $1,295,000. If you would like to build your own estate home, there is a four-acre parcel – complete with building pad and a few out buildings – planted with numerous mature trees that could be purchased for $975,000.

These are a few of the Best of the Best properties that are available currently for you to easily view on the spur of the moment. We are happy to help you.
