It’s here! New Vacation Rental Marketplace Website Announcement

What we do and where we are going

TimetoVacationWe are pleased to reveal our newly designed vacation rental marketplace website for Hawaii Dream Realty LLC, feel free to Take a Peek! We have worked hard to grow Hawaii Dream Realty LLC from a single dimension real estate brokerage operation to a franchised company more robustly able to provide for our Client’s real estate needs. The company utilizes enterprise systems for each of its business lines with the goal to maximize returns, increase property value, reduce risk and stress, save time and money, and ultimately to provide piece of mind to our Clients.

The company already employed proprietary systems for marketing and managing real estate transactions through our affiliation with EXIT Realty Corp International. Hawaii Dream Realty LLC, doing business as EXIT Real Estate Services, specializes in the procurement and exchange of investment properties.

Today, Hawaii Dream Realty LLC is comprised of a number of business lines that have been developed in direct response to the needs of our Clients. Together they provide our Clients with a total real estate investment solution. For the first time we have dedicated websites and back office support systems that reflects each service line.

The vacation rental marketplace is the consumer end of an enterprise system that expands the ability for Hawaii Dream Realty LLC to manage and market our Client’s investment properties zoned for short term accommodations. Our new website, aside from being aesthetically pleasing, provides an agile and easy to scan, read, and navigate interface for its users enabling visitors to find their accommodation wants quickly.

One of our primary objectives we wanted to achieve when designing the new site was to help visitors get to know us better and get a feel for who we are as a company and vacation services host. We employed a responsive, security-conscience design, which means that you’ll see essentially the same design and secure interface optimized for your smart phone, tablet or desktop.

We hope you will visit the new website at our new address, www.waikikistay.com and acquaint yourself with the many options we offer when it comes to vacation rental properties for Waikiki. The company has its office located in the heart of Waikiki on the beautiful Hawaiian Island of Oahu. The vacation rental accommodations are within a three block radius of the office and have immediate access to everything that is Waikiki from its dining, street entertainment, to its beautiful beaches and parks, and even a zoo and an aquarium.

We are quite proud of the site, but we know there is still work to do. In the coming months, we plan to continue to expand our online marketing to additional third party vendor sites increasing the online exposure of our Client’s properties.

Property Management Services

Hawaii Dream Realty LLC offers full service property management for Oahu real property owners who wish to retain their investments, increase property value and maximize their return. Many investors are already accustomed to managing accounts online, checking balances, making online payments, and electronically transferring funds. Our approach to investment properties is the same which is why we employ an easy to navigate, Real Property Investment Management Portal. The portal provides the level of transparency into our property management that you deserve and benefit.

For Property Owners, we offer two levels of property management service: full management service and limited management service. Since EXIT Hawaii Dream Realty is a licensed and insured, full service, residential real estate brokerage, if you are interested in selling your real estate, we can work with you to maintain your rental cash flow while discretely marketing the property for sale.

Full Management Service includes access to our Real Property Investment Management Portal which enables you to log into a secure web site with real time access to property information. The portal is the link between your real property portfolio and our property management accounting system. You have on-demand, real time, access, where ever or whenever you have Internet access with complete transparency into our accounting. This means you can view Owner Rental Statements with the ability to point and click to retrieve transaction details or ledger entries. The portal also provides a means to update contact information; view, track, or defer work order requests; access shared documents; and generate financial, rental, and task reports.

Real Estate Consumer Information

WORKING WITH A REAL ESTATE BROKER

Important Information for Anyone Planning to Buy or Sell a Home

If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, most likely you’ll soon meet a real estate broker or salesperson. There are many services a broker can offer you without making an obligation but before long you should discuss broker representation. It’s the first thing you need to know about buying or selling a home.

  1. BROKER REPRESENTS SELLER: If the broker is the seller’s agent, then the seller is the broker’s client and you are, in effect, a customer.You can buy a home in this situation just as you would purchase a product from a salesperson – that is, without professional representation by an agent of your own. Even though the broker is employed by the seller, the broker can still work closely with you, providing information about properties and financing procedures. A broker representing the seller can even help you prepare and present your offer to purchase the seller’s home. But as the seller’s agent, the broker’s primary loyalty is to the seller. Therefore, you may not want to reveal certain information about yourself, such as your urgency to move or your willingness to increase your offer.
  2. BROKER REPRESENTS BUYER: If you wish, you can retain the services of a broker to help you buy a home -just as you would hire an accountant or attorney. You become a client, and your broker represents you exclusively when you purchase your home. You gain the benefits of your broker’s experience and expertise. If you decide to use a broker as your agent, select one carefully. Discuss the services he or she can provide, and whether you will be charged a fee. This should be put in writing. You may decide you don’t need your own broker. The seller’s agent may be able to provide you with all the information you require to buy the home you want without representation. 
  3. BROKER REPRESENTS BOTH BUYER AND SELLER: It is also possible for a broker to represent both buyer and seller in a real estate transaction. However, state law requires that the broker inform both parties of the dual representation, briefly describe the type of representation to be offered, disclose all facts relevant to each party, including any possible conflicts of interest, and obtain their written consent. The reason for this law is to clarify at the outset the financial relationships and responsibilities of each party in a dual agency situation. Knowing the facts will help you decide how much personal information you wish to disclose to the broker. The above information was made available by the Hawaii Real Estate Commission brochure.

Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. Even if you have done it before, laws and regulations change. REALTORS handle hundreds of real estate transactions over the course of their career. Below are some compelling reasons why having an expert on your side is critical.

Theresa Harden was a tremendous help for us last summer in finding our quarters in Kailua. In fact, if not for her being aggressive and battling for our house, we probably would not have been successful. We were very, very happy with Theresa. J.K. Lowrey, 04/2010
