Real Estate Matchmaking Service Launched in Hawaii


To help people who want to buy real estate in the Hawaiian Islands, Julie and Eric Ziemelis have a launched an innovative real estate “matchmaking” service to connect people with their extensive “Aloha Network” of REALTORS and mortgage professionals on all the Hawaiian islands. This service helps take the guesswork out of choosing a trustworthy, knowledgable, ethical, and well regarded real estate professional to assist you in your real estate needs.

Eric Ziemelis has his real estate license with LUVA Real Estate based in Kailua Kona (with offices in Kailua, Oahu). He and his wife, Julie, are part of the marketing team for Kona Home Team within the LUVA Real Estate brokerage. Julie has worked within the West Hawaii real estate community for over 8 years and has connections from her work in real estate social media training around the islands.

“Julie and Eric introduced me to our REALTOR and mortgage professional to help make the whole process easier and with people we could trust”, local Kailua-Kona resident, Karl Kaszuba stated.

“When someone looking to buy a home on the islands first connects with us, we ask them questions around where they want to live, what lifestyle are they looking for, what is their timeframe for buying, and a few questions to get to know them a bit better”, states Julie.  Eric then connects them with REALTORS we think will be a great match on the island they want to live on.   We continue to work with our clients to ensure the match is a good one and keep an eye on them through the process. For folks who want to buy property on Hawaii Island, we  invite the potential homebuyer into our “365Kona’s I’m Moving to the Big Island of Hawaii and Buying A Home” group with hundreds of members and community resource advisors and for those people wanting to live in West Hawaii, they are invited to join the “Kona Newbies” group to add even more value. This is a totally complimentary service!”

    Eric & Julie; We are retired and not of money! I have owned a bit of land in Fern Forest bear Mountain View. Have not been back since 1984 and have no idea if the area is good or not now? We have 2 small pups and do not live large, we need good air, safe place, and walking places. Land I have may not be the best area anymore? We are near 70 years young and want a good life as long as we can go for it; any impressions or should we call and talk? Thanks again Rob Petersen
