06. February 2020 · Comments Off on 2019 Year in Review · Categories: Hawaii Real Estate

List Sotheby’s International Realty enjoyed its most successful year to date in 2019, filled with profitable gains, new leadership, and notable realtor and staff recognitions.

“We’re proud of our impressive and high-performing team of agents who provide exceptional service and market knowledge to buyers and sellers in Hawaii,” said Fred Parr, chief executive officer of List Sotheby’s International Realty. “We closed out 2019 as our most successful year to date, and look forward to an even more profitable 2020.”

Principal Broker Brad Kaneshiro agreed, adding, “The tremendous achievements we saw this year—both fiscal and personal—are a testament to the remarkable team we’ve assembled here at List Sotheby’s International Realty. Mahalo to the Hawaii community for trusting our expertise to match extraordinary buyers to extraordinary homes.”

The most significant highlights, events, and sales of the past year are as follows:

Frederick Parr Named New CEO

$13 Million Sale of Timeless Mililani Estate
One of our most significant sales of the year, the 128-acre Mililani estate boasts a rich and vibrant history in Hawaii, with its roots tracing back to its original location in Makiki. Once belonging to Alan Davis, former head trustee of Campbell Estate, the property was built at 1001 Wilder Avenue before Davis decided it was better suited for the Central Oahu countryside. The home was then moved to Mililani, where it’s now situated on a lush agricultural estate and features multiple dwellings and guest cottages, mature mango and lychee trees, a spa resort, a large equipment barn. The timeless mountain retreat also benefits from a variety of trails, streams and valleys, along with breathtaking forest and mountain views.

04. February 2020 · Comments Off on New Year, New Ban on Plastics · Categories: What's Happening on Oahu
List Sotheby's International Realty Hawaii

Hawaii is known for its pristine landscapes, gorgeous beaches, and breathtaking mountain ranges. In an effort to reduce the negative impacts of pollution, littering, and ultimately– climate change on our island home, Hawaii has instituted one of the strictest bans on plastics in the nation, making significant strides in the quest to protect the land.

The new ban, which officially took effect on January 1, 2020, prohibits Oahu’s stores from distributing any form of plastic bag, even compostable ones. Over the next couple of years, Bill 40 will begin to take effect, which is a comprehensive prohibition bill that will eliminate all plastic utensils by January 1, 2021, and all plastic containers by January 1, 2022.

There are many ways to adapt to the new and upcoming bans while reducing your carbon footprint and impact on the land. The next time you’re out shopping for groceries, remember to bring your reusable tote or produce bag to store your purchases. You can also opt for reusable bottles or mugs for your beverages, and avoid using plastic straws whenever possible. A few small changes can go a long way in our efforts to protect and preserve the land around us!
