I just got a call from (another) telemarketing company today. He starts off, "This is Daniel from Netbiz.com on behalf of Google.com.  Do you want to be on the first page of Google permanently?" Of course I do!  Did I tell him that?  No.  I said "I'm not going to pay you for that."  He said, "Oka...

If you haven't been up Diamond Head Trail, it's a great hike!  You'll have to try it sometime - just don't try it until after November 20, 2008.  On October 20th, the State of Hawaii closed the trail for repairs.

The place does need cosmetic work though.  T...

Are you into social networking?  I'm slowly learning about the subject to increase my online presence to homebuyers and sellers.  Recently, a friend from another island sent me an invite to join Tagged.com.  It seemed innocent enough, like joining Facebook or MySpace.  I followed the link and wen...

I had a good listing, a house in Honolulu with separate entries and kitchens.  This property was going into foreclosure and we were trying to get an offer acceptable to the bank. Our first round resulted in a best offer of $550,000.  We submitted it to the bank and their response was "no".  The ...
