Never underestimate the Importance of a Thank You!

– Kay

We are independently owned real estate firm, headed by Principal Broker/Owner, Kay M. Mukaigawa. Our 23 agents are results driven rather than commission driven - and often work in teams to deliver the best, most comprehensive service. Clients love this team approach. Most of our business is referral based through friends and family.
Our specialities are: Residential home sales and some Commercial sales and leasing.
3 words that describe our company: Enthusiastic, Trustworthy, Results
To me, living with style means: Surrounding yourself with comfortable and beautiful pieces - whether it’s clothing or furniture. It’s not about “designer brands” - it’s an attitude. It’s the confidence you feel when you’re comfortable in your own skin.

Q & A

With the limited supply of vacant land on Oahu, what advice would you give to people looking to buy land to build their dream home?
Once you select the neighborhoods you want to live in, look for land that will accommodate the kind of home you want to build, and be sure to find out if there are any restrictions or zoning issues that may affect your building plans. You could also look for existing homes that may be worth extending or restoring. If all else fails, you could tear down and rebuild, which is not as expensive as you may think.
How can owners avoid paying taxes if they decide to sell their rental property?
One option is a 1031 exchange, which allows an owner to defer his or her capital tax gain by purchasing another property. There are timing restrictions on these exchanges that a Realtor can help explain. Also, if your property was recently rented and you lived in it for two of the past five years, you may be able to avoid paying income taxes on the sale.
When selling a home, how important is the condition of the property?
A home in prime condition will always sell faster and for more. Home maintenance and renovation projects are worth the effort because buyers do pay a premium for homes that are “move-in” ready. You may also be surprised at how little it costs to get your home fixed up. Projects like repainting, reflooring, resurfacing kitchen cabinets and hiring a cleaning crew are worth exploring. Other quick fixes include new plumbing fixtures, caulking and neatly trimmed shrubs and trees.
