The lanai has treetop views that give you a sense of peace.

With restaurants, shops, and everything else in between, all within close proximity, you can experience the best of Honolulu right at your doorstep!Best known as a vacation destination, Waikiki has much to offer – to both visitors and residents. While its white sand beach is the main attraction, Waikiki presents a multitude of shopping and dining options to suit everyone’s tastes. World class resorts such as the Hilton Hawaiian Village, the Hyatt Regency Waikiki, the Sheraton Waikiki and the luxurious Halekulani Hotel maintain their “star status” along with the historic Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider Hotels. Kalakaua Avenue, Waikiki’s main thoroughfare named after King Kalakaua, hosts an abundance of luxury designer stores. Waikiki is also anchored by Queen Kapiolani Regional Park, the largest and oldest public park in Hawaii. It is a welcoming stretch of green located on the east end of Waikiki just beyond Kuhio Beach Park. It includes the Honolulu Zoo, and the Kapiolani Park bandstand and Waikiki Shell which hosts outdoor concerts. The Waikiki Aquarium is conveniently located right across the street. In addition to showcasing a variety of fish, marine life, mammals, and coastal plants, it is another popular venue for concerts. Waikiki which means “spouting fresh water” in the Hawaiian language was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty in the 1800s. Princes Kaiulani and Prince Kuhio, members of Hawaii’s royal family, lived in Waikiki and maintained sprawling estates. The coconut trees that grace the beach are descendants of the original trees planted hundreds of years ago by Hawaiian royalty. The 1930s saw the arrival of “Hollywood royalty” and when statehood occurred, Waikiki gained even greater appeal both nationally and internationally. While its skyline is punctuated with hotels and high-rises, Waikiki is gaining recognition for being home to exclusive residential towers, attracting an international clientele. Whether as a winter getaway or a home in one of the most famous vacation spots, Waikiki is one of the most highly sought-after destinations in the world.

« 1 of 17 »

The Hawaii Affiliates of Sotheby’s International Realty (HASIR) recently hosted their third Hawaii Networking Event at Koloa Landing Resort in Poipu, Kauai. Over 130 agents and guests from the five independently owned and operated Sotheby’s International Realty (SIR) offices in Hawaii as well as representatives from SIR’s major feeder markets and Sotheby’s International Realty corporate members convened to share valuable information pertinent to the 2018 luxury real estate climate.

To kick off the event, keynote speaker Larry Kendall, author of Ninja Selling and Founding Partner of The Group Inc., shared details of his sales training system, which include daily and weekly habits that agents need to practice in order to be highly successful. Kendall’s recently published book, “Ninja Selling: Subtle Skills. Big Results” is critically acclaimed by real estate and business professionals alike.

Guest speaker Andrew Greenwell, CEO and founder of Venture Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the premier real estate firms in the Bay Area specializing in ultra-luxury real estate in the San Francisco area, also addressed the group, illustrating how different generations ranging from Baby Boomers to Gen Yers view the real estate market.

The conference featured many networking opportunities for the Hawaii agents who interacted with SIR representatives from feeder markets, such as Realogics SIR in Washington state, Russ Lyons SIR in Arizona and NRT LLC, a Realogy subsidiary, Sotheby’s International Realty in Malibu. A critical topic of discussion was the psyche of the mainland buyer interested in Hawaii property, considering what is important to the buyer, such as the general market overview and the Hawaii lifestyle.

Courtney Brown, a Top Producing REALTOR® from Island Sotheby’s International Realty on Maui, expressed how important these face-to-face sessions with colleagues in referral and feeder markets were to her and her clients. “It’s refreshing to know that our relationships with brokers in other markets are there to assist when we have that extraordinary listing. These relationships between brokers can facilitate an introduction to that special buyer who may be coming from the West Coast market and it’s just a phone call away to reach this unique network,” Brown said.

Kai Ioh, a 2017 Top Producing REALTOR® for MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty on the Big Island of Hawaii, closed over $150 million in global sales in 2017 and 2018. The core of Kai’s success is personal attentiveness and customized assistance to the needs of his clients. Kai’s sales were 100% buyer referrals and personal networking. “Significant sales in Hawaii, California and New York to international buyers are a testament to global brand success,” said Kai.

“Our Hawaii agents made valuable new connections with agents from important markets. The real estate professionals attending were treated to special property tours, a marketplace of vendors, and honed their real estate skills at the multiple networking sessions,” said Donna Apisa, Principal Broker and Owner of Oceanfront Sotheby’s International Realty.

“It was an honor to have Andrew Greenwell of Venture Sotheby’s International Realty moderate our panel discussion. These events leverage our power through the Sotheby’s International Realty network so that we may connect with other top SIR agents from around the world to better serve our clients,” said Georgie Tamayose, President of Island Sotheby’s International Realty.

The informative weekend combined with colorful festivities, served as a perfect backdrop for these top professionals to mingle, meet new agents and gather new business ideas.
