365 Kona Launches New YouTube Channel To Help People Moving to the Big Island Of Hawaii


Do you know how many people ask me all the time about what it takes to buy a home or land or an investment condo in Hawaii?

Enough that my husband obtained his real estate license so we can start helping people by connecting them to real estate professionals all over the island to help make their dream of moving to Hawaii a reality AND utilize the combined knowledge of our friends to help YOU by interviewing them on the secrets of buying a home here.

To offer further assistance to folks seeking information about purchasing property, my husband and I created a YouTube channel, “Big Island Real Estate Minute.”  We have already interviewed two of our favorite Realtors, Lance Owens and Delania Branham, as well as mortgage broker Jamaica Canas and professionals in the solar, energy and pre-designed homes industry.

A sample of cool videos include:

-Using Condos As Vacation Rentals in Kailua Kona 

-Getting a Mortgage in Hawaii-Your First Step 

-How To Effectively Search Online for Homes in Hawaii 

I also created a new Facebook group called “365Kona’s I’m Moving to the Big Island and Buying A Home!”  where we offer informative blog posts, real estate market updates, videos, answer questions and create community for people wishing to purchase property on the Big Island.

Our referral real estate business does not cost potential buyers (or sellers) anything and since I have lived on the island for seven years and have built some fantastic relationships with local Realtors, mortgage brokers and service providers, I can definitely be a valuable resource to you.

So, go ahead and subscribe to our YouTube channel, join the Facebook group or email me to sign up directly to get listing alerts from our local multiple listing service to get properties as they come on the market in your price range and location. You can also purchase my “How to Move to Kona” book filled with helpful advice about moving to the island and tips for finding happiness here. And, stay tuned for a real estate guide I am creating!
