Your Kauai REALTOR®
Aloha, I'm Mayu Tomizawa
My vision is to be the most reliable guide to successful real estate transaction on Kauai. Timeliness and detailedness are character traits of mine naturally. Competitive but honest is the position I choose to take during my dealings.
My passions include the study and practice of Hula and swimming in the ocean. I enjoy Kauai’s warm weather and various microclimates.
Originally from Japan, I also enjoy cooking Japanese food, and sharing the dishes and recipes with friends and colleagues, while also enjoying their renditions of traditional Japanese food.
Your Kauai REALTOR®
Aloha, I'm Craig Hudson
My task is to connect sellers and buyers of condos and homes while guiding my clients through the sometimes tricky transaction process within the county of Kauai and the state of Hawaii.
My passions are surfing and hiking. I also enjoy the ongoing practice of Kajukenbo. Mayu and I met in Japan where we enjoyed snowboarding together and where I was published several times in Japanese snowboarding magazines, including a notable descent of Mt. Tsurugi (剱岳). Mayu’s cooking is my favorite on the island.
Prior to my work as a Realtor, I spent 18 years in the semiconductor automated test equipment industry, living in the Bay Area for a about 4 of those years, and the subsequent 14 years working between Asia and the U.S. from my home office in Hawaii.
Kauai Condo & Home Transaction
Overview of selling or buying on Kauai.
LOCAL MARKET KNOWLEDGE FOR THE SELLER & BUYER
Buyers need to find the best house within their budget, in the most appropriate neighborhood, and to validate the condition of the property.
Buyer's also need to have data to know what the market demands in terms of price and purchase conditions.
What is often overlooked, is that the same standard purchase agreement is designed to also help protect the seller from liability. A 'clean' transaction is what is desired, with both parties knowing the property appropriately.
Choose a Realtor agent for your side and enter into an agreement using the standard form approved by the Hawaii Association of Realtors.
CONCLUDING THE PROCESS
The schedule along the way is negotiated not only with the buyer and seller, but also with third parties including appraisers, surveyors, inspectors and others. This can be very time consuming and cumbersome on Kauai, with some third party vendors limited in number and unable to be flexible with scheduling. Do you need to extend the schedule for closing because of this? Your agent should be helping to align the activities.
When all align in a timely manner, the transaction process is concluded for the benefit of both sellers and buyers.
