Teresa Nelle, Realtor (S), Island Sotheby's International Realty - West Maui Office

The Hawaiian value of aloha has a lot of different meanings. But, during the holiday season, aloha means spreading love throughout your community and to those who need it most. At least, this is true for Island Sotheby International Realty Agent Teresa Nelle, who’s been volunteering her time to feeding the community of Maui for the last 7 years alongside a program called Feed My Sheep.

“I believe no one should go hungry, its a basic human right to have enough to eat, especially in a rich country,” said Nelle when asked about why she started working with FMS.

Feed My Sheep is a mobile food distribution program, unlike any other. By driving out into the

For me, working in Maui’s Real Estate market is more than buying and selling homes. There are stories behind the homes embedded in their history and the surrounding landscape. Stories that span both generations and geologic time. Whether a place boasts monumental history, has complex place names, or is as simple (or diverse) as the features of its landscape, all places have their own uniqueness which gives imbues in them intrinsic value. Knowing these stories, histories, and landscapes adds to one’s sense of place. I’d like to share some of these stories, like this simple background of my own neighborhood here on Maui, Kula Kai:

At the time of the Mahele Aina (1848), the lands of Kula Kai were granted in formal Land Grants to persons by the name

Pilot and Island Sotheby's International Realty agent Anita White has been involved with aviation and real estate since 1986. Her real estate career began in Mexico, before she moved to Maui in 1989 to earn her real estate license.

It didn’t take long for her passion for flight to take over. After a year and a half in real estate, she left for flight school, eventually becoming a flight instructor and Big Island Volcano tour pilot.

Yet a decade later, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 spurred her to make the switch from full-time commercial pilot to full-time real estate associate, specializing in oceanfront property on Maui's west coast. “Now I'm known as the Aviator Agent because I

The holidays usually bring one of the slowest times of year across the country for real estate sales. But that’s not true on Maui: The winter rush of visitors and second-home owners to the island is poised to usher in a one of the largest boosts in sales during the first few months of 2020.  

“We are going to see a great uptick in real estate sales, both on the number of transactions and the price points,” said Island Sotheby’s International Realty owner and Principal Broker Ryan MacLaughlin. “Historically, January through April we see record sales.”

According to recently released data from the Maui Association of Realtors, the median sales price jumped 5.7 percent so far this year compared to last year. At the same time, the number of

Last month, more than 300 paddlers took to the seas to raise money for breast cancer research and community resources as part of the Paddle for Life, an event supported for years by Island Sotheby’s International Realty’s longtime Lana’i agent, Greg Sturm R(S). 

“It was Breast Cancer Awareness Month so a bunch of crews paddle from Maui to Lana’i and everyone sponsors paddlers with donations,” Sturm explained. 

Sturm helped sponsor a team of paddlers from Lana’i, whose team ended up raising more than $6,000. That team joined more than 300 other paddlers, who altogether raised a whopping $224,654 to support breast cancer research and services for Maui families who are touched by cancer.
