Island Sotheby’s International Realty has helped a late Lahainaluna High School teacher’s dream to support students come true.  

Tom Hansen, a longtime english teacher at Lahainaluna High School, recently passed away and instructed that the proceeds from his home and other financial accounts be used to start a nonprofit foundation — the Tom Hansen Scholarship Foundation. That trust will help support Lahainaluna high school students with demonstrated financial need as they pursue higher education and trade schools.

Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Rob Shelton was asked to oversee the sale of Hansen’s home, a three-bedroom, one-bathroom home on Kaniau Road in Lahaina. The two-story building boasts ocean views and a 600-square foot ohana.

For yet another year in a row, Maui’s famous Ka’anapali Beach has made the list of the top 25 beaches across the globe.

Each year, TripAdvisor ranks beaches across the globe that its millions of users visit on their travels.

With 3 miles of white sand and water so clear it looks like glass, it’s no surprise that Ka’anapali Beach frequently ranks among the nation and world’s best beach.

After more than 50 people lost their homes to fires that raged through West Maui last week, the Maui ohana is coming together to help them rebuild.

As Hurricane Lane barreled toward Hawaii late last week, the island braced for rain and floods.  Fortunately, the hurricane lost strength and far less rain was realized for most areas of Maui. Unexpectedly though, the wind fanned three fires which scorched roughly 2,330 acres from Launiupoko to Ka’anapali. According to fire officials, at least 21 structures and 30 vehicles were damaged.
