Another Zillow Published Review for Gary Mooers

Summary of their experience:  "I don’t normally write online reviews, but I had to share my experience with Gary because of his knowledge, service, and expertise. I’m no stranger to real estate transactions. In fact, my wife is a realtor in another state. So we did all of our own research and found a few properties that we wanted to see. Gary was super easy to work with off the bat. He didn’t have us sign a buyers agreement. Instead, he earned our business and trust with his professionalism and vast knowledge of the Maui market. When it came time to make an offer, he insisted on a price that he thought would be a great place to start the negotiation. Much to our surprise, the offer was accepted - without counters. To say it was a smooth and easy escrow was an understatement.  There are many realtors to choose from, but in my opinion having Gary Mooers as your agent gives you the advantage of having the best agent on Maui on your side. Gary has the incredible skill of being ALL BUSINESS, while also being helpful, charismatic and genuine - all at the same time. If we ever decide to sell any RE on Maui, He would make an excellent seller’s agent for all the same reasons that make him great for buyers. He’s an excellent communicator and is tough and firm, yet completely respectful and affable. I recommend Gary 100% without hesitation. You should give him a call, you will not be disappointed."

Hawaii Bonds get S&P's AA Rating

Standard & Poor's has assigned a AA rating to $800 million in Hawaii general obligation bonds. S&P's credit analyst Gabriel Petek said that state revenue has begun to improve, and that tax collections were great in July through September compared to the past two fiscal years. He noted that the tourism industry is also showing signs of growth.

Visitor Rebound

The Hawaii Tourism Authority reported Tuesday that September saw a gain of 4.7% in visitor count over the same month in 2010. For the first nine months, Maui County has welcomed4.5% more visitors than the same period of 2010.

Molokai is up 14.9%, and Lanai is up 14.1%.

International traffic has recovered better than domestic.

International visitors, which only make up about one-sixth of Maui's count, in September were up 38.3%, and year-to-date were up 17.3%.

Maui vacation condos and hotels were two-thirds full in September, not unusual for one of the dullest months of the year, but hotel operators were able to boost their rack rates by more than $15 a night. So far this year Hawaii's lodging business is doing 12.8% better than last year, and 20.9% better than in 2009, measured in room revenue. For the first nine months of 2011, Maui had the highest average daily rate of $246.52, up 9.3%. Occupancy rates are up about the same amount in each county so far this year. YTD, Maui is up to 71.2% from 68.8% last year.

Hawaii foreclosures drop 66% year over year

According to an article in Pacific Business News (Click here for entire article), there were a total of 427 properties with foreclosure notices in October - including notices of default, public auctions and bank repossessions ­- which was one per every 1,208 housing units, RealtyTrac said. That was a 66% drop from October 2010.

Nationwide, foreclosures were down 31% in October.

Hawaiian Airlines Adds More Aircraft

The airline announced Thursday that it had ordered five more Airbus A330 aircraft to be completed within the next four years. This will bring Hawaiian Airlines' total order of that aircraft to 13. The airline says it has been meeting an increased demand for service to Honolulu from other cities. The A330 will be used for flights between New York City and Honolulu beginning June 5, 2012.

Other Good News

The four week average which economists check because it smoothes out the week-to-week fluctuations in the job market, dropped below 400,000 for the first time in seven months. The number of Americans receiving unemployment benefits fell to 3.6 million, the lowest number since September 20,2008 - the week that Lehman Brothers went bankrupt and started the financial meltdown.

Employers posted more job openings in September than at any other point in the past three years, nearly 3.4 million jobs, the Labor Department said Tuesday. That's the most since August 2008, one month before the financial crises intensified.

The U.S. trade deficit narrowed to $43.1 billion in September, its lowest point of the year, the Commerce Department said. The deficit has narrowed for the last three months.

Consumers are giving the economy a boost- they spent more on trucks electronics and building supplies in October, to boost retail sale for the fifth straight month. Retail sales rose 0.5% from September to October. A rebound in consumer spending is a key reason why the economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5% in the July-September quarter, the best quarterly performance in a year.

Komoda Store, A Makawao Treat

Up at the top of Baldwin Avenue in historic Makawao town are the best pastries available on Maui at Komoda Store. You've gotta be sure to plan ahead and get there early or you will be left behind. This family run business is frequented by travelers, a bike stop for excursions, and a stop for the local aunty or uncle to get their newspaper and a weekly treat. Whether it be cream puffs or stick donuts, pies, or cinnamon snail, this place is a gem and they sell out daily. Only open mornings until about lunchtime closed Wednesdays and Sundays. No website here. This place has been in business for over 75 years and is as old school as it gets.

Kuau Store - A Gem on Maui's North Shore

Next time you find yourself on Maui's North Shore, I highly recommend a stop by the famous Kuau Store. 

Newly revamped and reopened over the past few years, this little mart is full of local finds and artisan delights. For a nice hot latte or a fresh sandwich or salad to take to Hookipa Beach Park, this place serves up some quality eats to accompany as you "holo holo" (cruise) to check out the world famous surf and sandy beaches.
Stop by next time you find yourself driving through town, you will not be disappointed.

New Kihei Charter School Campus - Coming Soon

Our charter school in Kihei has been distributed over 3 campuses since inception. This is about to change as preparations are underway to break ground on a new unified campus for our South Maui students. The 63,000 square foot building will be located in The Maui Research and Technology Park with plans include 30 classrooms, an auditorium, and a kitchen. The public charter school will utilize 58,000 sq. feet of the space and the balance will be leased to businesses. 

Kihei Charter School originally opened in 2001 with help from South Maui Learning Ohana and began as 60 students from 12th-12th grade. In 2005 they expanded to include kindergarten through 12th grade and now it's grown to 550 students. For years the campus has been pided amongst 3 different sites that were developed as to accommodate the school as it grew. Now they are ready to join together as one central campus. Students and faculty look forward to the benefits of having broader age ranges in the same location. Hopes are that these changes will allow the children and the faculty to learn from each other.  This is a testament to the forecasted growth on Maui. 

Plans for a separate South Maui High School are still in the works and 

I'll be sure to keep you apprised as they develop.
