Hey BP fam, My wife and I are currently in Maui and are wanting to invest in a property or two in the near future. Can anyone point us in a good direction? We are looking for something near Kihei most likely as a vacation rental. Any recommendations on agents, property managers, banks, other investors in the area, etc??
I live here in Kihei. LOVE the Southside, but I'm biased. Haha
I'm pretty new myself, but I know of a few local investors, and a real estate agent I can point you towards. I plan to get my first 2-4 unit multi-family this year in the central valley, upcountry, or (preferably) the Southside.
Patrick Franta is an agent that comes highly recommended.
Mike Neubauer is a local investor who is also interested in STR's.
Zasha Smith is another local investor who is born & raised and is absolutely crushing it here.
That's just a few off the top of my head.
Let's connect man!
I can certainly help you with your search and also connect you with the right lenders, title company, property management, etc. My specialty is in South Maui and I am a Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist. Just be prepared that inventory is extremely low and there are currently more buyers than sellers. Sometimes it takes casting a net to other agents to find the perfect property BEFORE it hits market!
@Laura Myers That’s what it sounds like! And that would be great, thanks
Thanks for the great reply! Let’s definitely connect
Aloha Kyle! Yep. Been here in Maui for about 20 years. I have several vacation rentals in Kihei and am intimately familiar with every complex on the South side from being a firefighter in Kihei. I’m happy to wala’au (talk story) with you and I can absolutely connect you with all the pieces you need as well. Feel free to DM me and we can set up a time to chat!
Thanks for the referral @George Allen !
Just stopping by to say that it sounds awesome. I don't know anything about that market.
@Mike Neubauer Awesome man, thanks! I’ll DM you
I can recommend Sanoe Elf who is with CB. she is a local and is very responsive and professional.
E Komo Mai!
Maui market is really hot right now and finding a really good deal is not as easy as is used to be. Also, the lending for vacation rental is a lot harder prior to covid, 30% down now than it was 20% down prior COVID.
I’m a local active mobile home park park investor/operator in mainland, landlord in small multi family and own couple vacation rental here on Maui and also licensed Realtor here on Maui, love talk story so dm me anytime.
I'll volunteer. full-time real estate broker/owner, 16-year Maui resident, own 7 properties, a few in Kihei, closing on my 8th pretty soon, specialize in investment properties. $1k closing cost credit to new clients!!
I recently purchased a condo in Kihei, if you need a realtor mine was awesome to work with (I bought the unit remotely... :p).
I am expecting to put the unit into the market this summer hopefully.
