Great news this holiday season

By Staff | Dec 15, 2016

Mischelle Lawrence, James Harris and our mother, Meredith Quenon, wish you and all of your ‘ohana a season filled with aloha!

Aloha and Happy Holidays! During the season of giving and sharing, we could not be happier with the new opportunity that has been given to us. If you haven’t heard yet on the Coconut Wireless, Whalers Realty Inc. has now merged with Keller Williams. With this merger, Mischelle Lawrence and Jim Harris look forward to being able to give you as sellers not only extensive statewide exposure, but this takes us into a whole new level of national and international exposure.

The Keller Williams formula is famous worldwide and has a concept meant to serve all: “Win, Win or No Deal.” It is very exciting to be associated with such world-class individuals that are incredibly respectful and professional to everyone. The extensive education and seminars offered exceed any that we have ever seen offered with any other real estate companies. It is always advantageous to be on the cutting edge with a winning team in regards to technology and education in our profession. This enables us to help YOU best. If you are a buyer, we are now connected personally with top producers island-wide that are always working on new listings. If we know what you are looking for, we will let you know the minute it becomes available through our comprehensive automatic update system. The market is thriving, and we are seeing properties appreciating quite rapidly in many parts of Maui. A good example is Lahaina Town. In “town,” there were homes available in the last six months for under $500,000. Now, the least expensive home is $750,000! Likewise, in Kahana Ridge, where over the last six months we saw properties in the $700,000 price range, now prices start at $1,050,000.

If you are looking for creme de la creme properties, you must consider:

Mahana 701, which is DIRECT oceanfront and positioned in the most desirable location of the entire property. This large corner unit with two bedrooms and two full baths was extensively renovated, which included redesigning the kitchen as well as both baths. The total cost was approximately $200,000. This unit is in the Aston Resorts vacation rental program and is a featured apartment for marketing used by Aqua-Aston and rated A-plus. Amenities at the property include an oceanfront pool, spacious jacuzzi, professional barbecue area, state-of-the-art low-impact tennis courts, a welcoming lobby with in-house concierge service, front desk and a coffee cafe area. Priced fairly with a recent price reduction to sell at $1,525,000, this is a property not to be overlooked. Compared to any other Kaanapali direct oceanfront properties, this reflects incredible value. Please see the Virtual Tour: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlr-BaG2aPU&feature=youtube.

The unbelievably priced two-bedroom/two-bath direct oceanfront Hololani B502 is priced to sell at $645,000. This is turnkey with underground parking AND extra added storage. Vacation rentals and pets are allowed. Recently, the kitchen was remodeled with top-of-the-line appliances, cabinets, granite and more. The baths were remodeled, too!

There is nothing like living in Kaanapali Beach Resort, and it does not get better than The Vintage at Kaanapali. This neighborhood is on 17 acres with 73 freestanding condominium homes, completely surrounded by the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course. 108 Kualapa Place is the least expensive home currently for sale in this development and is very easy to view. This is a two-story, three-bedroom/two-and-a-half-bath home with a two-car garage, central air conditioning and great views. The home is being offered completely furnished; all you need to bring is your toothbrush. Proudly offered and priced to sell at $1,089,000, there is a video tour at my.matterport.com/show/?m=TRDWSmxq3s4&brand=0.

There are no vacation rentals allowed in The Vintage. It is pet-friendly and has so many amenities, including a heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, barbecue area, walking trails and a great little workout gym. The Vintage at Kaanapali lifestyle offers itself to golf cart resort-style living. Kaanapali Resort, Whalers Village, and world-famous Kaanapali Beach with Black Rock are just a golf cart ride away. Mischelle and Jim were the original sales managers at The Vintage and have been residents at the property for over 16 years.

Prior to that, Lawrence had worked with the developer of The Masters at Kaanapali Hillside and Kaanapali Hillside Phases 2 A & B. Harris and Lawrence called The Masters home for 15 years prior to moving to The Vintage. Kaanapali is in our blood, and we love living the resort lifestyle. Jim and Mischelle can help you find your Maui lifestyle, too! Whether it is an investment condominium to come and go from or a second, third, or fourth home, Harris and Lawrence have been helping buyers and sellers accomplish their real estates wants and needs for over 30 years.

Filled with gratitude, we wish you and your ‘ohana (family) Mele Kalikimaka and Happy Holidays. May it be a healthy, safe and blessed one filled with tons of aloha!
