Until recently, the primary options for luxury travel between Maui or Hawaii and the continental United States were to fly on a private jet or with first-class accommodations on a commercial flight. While both of these options have benefits, they are also riddled with inconveniences and disadvantages that make them less than…

The State of the Maui Real Estate Market 2021

Maui Real Estate Market Report

The unique Maui market witnessed record after record being broken along with a surge in demand for investment properties. Over half of the properties sold in 2021 sold at or above listing price.
