The LRE® Network in Action
Posted by Pete Neu — April 1, 2019
SEATTLE, WA - Another example of the LRE® network in action! Board of Regents member Ewing & Clark has partnered with Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate member Elite Pacific Properties for an exclusive listing in Lahaina, Maui.
Representing a Seattle buyer, broker Pete Neu researched Maui brokers that would be a good fit for his client’s new development search. After extensive research into top brokers on the island, Pete chose to introduce broker Greg Burns to his clients. Greg’s background in construction made him a natural choice for his expertise while Greg’s energy and enthusiasm for the Hawaiian lifestyle won over the client’s comfort and trust. Both being members of LRE®, Pete knew he had established a connection with a committed professional he could trust to provide the top-level service his clients have come to expect.
The buyers’ trust in Greg’s knowledge and relationships during the development search quickly turned in to a decision to have Greg list an investment property and vacation home located a short walk from the heart of Lahaina in West Maui. As Greg lives just down the street, his love for the location is unparalleled, and his ability to convey the specialness of the property is unique. The top-floor condo in the gated 10-unit community of Puunoa Estates is perfectly situated for privacy, convenience and adventure, all quietly nestled in the greenery of Baby Beach.
This large 2,500 sq ft four-bedroom home has resplendent panoramic views of the Pacific, from Kaho’olawe to Lanai, with the gentle lapping waves of reef-protected Baby Beach. A hit with parents, playing in the ocean here is safe as the beach is protected from big surf by a rock and coral reef, allowing everyone to relax and have fun. And when it’s time to enjoy the nightlife, restaurants and shopping, Main Street Lahaina is a short three-minute walk away. Puunoa Estates offers a private community pool and outdoor BBQs in addition to on-site management which provides resort quality services and vacation rental management. With the going rate at $1,450/night, sleeping six to eight people, when this home isn’t entertaining the owners on vacation, it’s busy paying the mortgage for them. It’s popularity, which you can see for yourself on One Fine Stay, is Greg’s biggest challenge with selling the home. With tremendous interest, but little opportunity to show the unit, the lucky buyers will either have to be patient, or rent the unit themselves and fall in love.
Meanwhile, Pete and Greg continue to collaborate in the interest of the owner, sharing marketing materials and customer databases to reach out to Hawaii locals, Pacific Northwesterners and the LRE® global network alike. Direct flights to Maui are available from most West Coast cities and even as far away as Calgary, Canada. With increased popularity in direct service from SeaTac to Kahului, Maui, this rare Puuunoa Estates property may just end up in the hands of another Seattleite!
