Hi Lesley,

I understand you are looking for a bank-owned property in Ko Olina Kai (Koio Dr) or Coconut Plantation (Olani St.). Inventory is very low at this time on the residential condos.

David is correct that Ola Properties is a "whole company" in that have a small team of professional agents. We are located right here in the neighborhood and have many relationships in the Ko Olina Resort, obtaining information and leads frequently.

With regard to Mr. Nash's original comment, I was just stating the facts since Mr. Nash claimed to have "sold more Ko Olina in 2012 ... than any other agent." I normally would not dispute another agents' remarks, however when a claim is not true, I feel responsible to inform the consumer of the truth. There are indeed other agents who have had as many and even more sales in Ko Olina in 2012 than David. Another single agent sold to more buyers than David.

Just to clarify, our team actually had a total of 8 sales, 7 condo sales plus we sold a Ko Olina Kai Estate Home. We have 3 agents active in Ko Olina. One was a brand new agent in 2012 with only one sale while Chad Holcomb and I sold the other 7 properties. I also had 5 other listings that the owners decided to lease longterm with us until the market prices improve. In the first quarter of 2013, I've had one sale close, one on Olani is pending, a backup offer on another and 2 other active listings in Ko Olina.

I work with buyers and sellers and many investors appreciate the insights and service we provide with property management as well. I am use technology with electronic signatures and do HD videos for clients when needed. Feel free to call me and see some reviews from my clients on to get a feel for the level of service I offer to see if we are a good match.

As long as you qualify for a VA loan, then you should have no problem purchasing this home for 100% financing. If you can get the sellers to pay your closing costs, then you can get in the property for little to nothing out of pocket.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

As a Real Estate Professional who understands financing I would have to go with buy a Condo for occasional use. The reason being this is a tourist area. You can always use your property for your personal use and hire a good property manager to keep it full and making money for you while you are not using it yourself. A timeshare, though convenient, does not offer you the long term investment opportunity that buying a condo offers. It is a great time to be a buyer with an Agent not afraid to make any offers. ... more
