Hi Alex,

I would be happy to help you find a condo in Waikiki to call home. The one youre looking at is not a great investment, however. In addition to buying two units... they are both leasehold... So you dont own them free and clear, this is why the prices are so low. Once the lease expires, you no longer own the property unless the lessor decides to sell the fee... and that can be expensive, in addition to the monthly lease payments.

Contact me and I can help you find something great. There is a lot out there!

Aloha, my name is Mike Gallagher and I own my own Brokerage. Been doing this for 13 years.
I suggest you use to find properties. This is the Oahu M.L.S. system. There you will easily what is available.

If you have not found out what a lender will loan you, I strongly suggest you do so as soon as possible otherwise you are wasting your time.

You may also want to visit my website at and then contact me with any questions.

I wish you much Aloha,

Hi Alex,

I am retired US Navy. Most of my clients are military. Feel free to call any time.
There are numerous lenders that offer VA loans, so it's good to shop around a bit to get the best rates and service.

Alex thank you for serving, we are all grateful for your service and honor. Please look into the Naval Federal Credit Union and USAA. RE/MAX is a great company as well. I am not just saying that. It was founded by vets and I am one as well. Thank you once again for your commitment and service.
Best wishes.

Alex, the number I gave you may not always get you in touch with me. As a property manager, I am available to my tenants 24 hours per day 7 days a week on my cell phone. Why don't you call me on that line, 808-754-3748? I guarantee a prompt response to your questions. Thanks and Aloha!

Alex, I am a retired Army Officer and I own RE/MAX Kai Lani. I do not broker sales myself, but spend my time managing people's rental homes for them when they are away from the Island, or otherwise, want to have a professional manage their home. I don't normally get results from my Trulia effort, but seeing as how you are military, you might want to work with a company owned by an "Old Soldier" and VietNam Vet. I will put you with my very best agent and she is GREAT, one of the best on the island. My phone is 808-738-4401.
