Social Networking at Street Level - Paia Maui HI
Sometimes it's good to get out and walk about your town. Yesterday I was in our Paia Maui office and decided to walk up to the Post Office to check the mail, even though it was hot and sunny and I could have cruised up in air conditioned comfort (but how lazy is that?).
I'm glad I did. I ran into a friend who is a property manager and learned of a cute home coming up for rent in the North Shore Village subdivision - at a good price too. I'll keep that in mind for any clients who are looking for a nice 3 bedroom home to rent in Paia, for $1,900/month.
I noticed a new coffee shop has opened, actually HAZ BEANZ relocated from a few doors down. They have a much bigger space now, and will soon be offering free wi-fi internet access. This is always popular in Paia. I had a chance to schmooze with the counter person and give her my card and let her know I'll be blogging about their new location soon. "Brilliant" she said!
On my way back I popped into Mana Foods for a couple of spring rolls and bumped into another Realtor I know. She told me about her upcoming price reduction on a really sweet house and ohana in Makawao - only $599,000! I had shown it to a client and I'll pass it on that the seller is more motivated... keep her updated. I informed her of my fresh new listing, before it was even entered into our Maui MLS system. We both benefit from the chance encounter.
I noticed plenty of smiling tourists walking about town, and could have started a conversation with any one of them, inquiring about their melting gelatos, or where they might have had their lunch. Today I chose not to, but what a good opportunity to meet people who are visiting and will possibly end up here when they retire.
So take a break from the keyboard, get out there and mingle - you'll get some hot tips about other properties for sale or rent, see some things to blog about, and get some exercise too. What's wrong with that?
