Moving to Hawaii Island? Helpful Videos And Resources For Your Success!


It’s 2024 and this is the year you may be thinking of making the move to Hawaii Island! I have been writing about moving to Kona and Hawaii Island for over 10 years and I have helped quite a few people make the move successfully AND introduced them to new friends through my 365 Kona Newbies Group and 365 Hawaii Beach Parties. Because when you move to an island, you need to have a tribe. Trust me!

One of the things I say when people ask me why I create so much information about moving here is that I hope to help the right people, at the right time, for the right reason, move here.  I hope to connect with and inspire those who feel a special bond to the island with its energy, culture and beauty. People that want to give back to the island and live Pono.

I created the 365 Ohana through my page for those of you who are considering buying property (and have not yet connected with a Realtor) which gives you access to my books, private Facebook groups, events, monthly live real estate reports and Q and A’s, and one on one coaching Zoom calls.
