I believe the adage goes that some things are worth waiting for; more importantly that good things happen to good people – this couldn’t be more true for Eric and Joulet Roger of Buffalo, NY who are some of the newest owners at Honua Kai.
After an uphill battle to help them secure the right one bedroom property, where stiff buyer competition and questionable sellers proved to be a formidable challenge – I served as their exclusive buyer’s representative and got them a fantastic deal closing on Konea #614 for $739,000.
I knew from the very first time that I talked to Eric on the phone that he was a very genuine, funny, and overall good human being – I was determined to help fulfill their dream; I couldn’t be more pleased and grateful for them.

A Few Words From Eric & Joulet About Their Experience
Our experience purchasing at Honua Kai from a distance was a rocky road for sure. After an unsuccessful negotiation attempt, it was clear to us that working with an agent on the inside would be necessary.
While researching through the internet, we came across Jeremy’s blogs. We were amazed by the quality and wealth of information provided there. At first, we felt this would certainly be great information to guide us, but when we realized that Jeremy had an established track record as a real-estate agent on this property, including managing properties there and even owning a unit, it became obvious he was the agent for us. He responded promptly to our emails and provided ample information throughout the process.
After multiple bids on several different units, we eventually landed a property. The process was difficult and tedious. At times, we were ready to simply walk away. Jeremy was extremely professional, courteous, and patient. His soft yet confident demeanor was inspiring and encouraging. Above all, he negotiated with the highest level of ethical standards. It is my firm belief that, without Jeremy and his team, we likely would not have closed on a property at Honua Kai. We look forward to working with Jeremy and Megan as property managers.

Konea #614 is Now Available Through The Stice Team Portfolio of Hawaii Life Vacation Rentals
The 135 sq.ft. covered lanai receives invigorating morning sun and is a soothing location for dining, lounging, and musing on natural beauty
Konea 614 is now known as Haunani, which in Hawaiian means “heavenly dew.” My wife and I felt this was an appropriate name as the property looks directly at Mauna Kahalawai (the house of water), or better known but less eloquent, The West Maui Mountains, which are a lush backdrop all year long where Anuenue (rainbows) frequently live. Mauna Kahalawai is the source for much the life in West Maui; it is a sacred and angelic place on Maui.
The Roger ‘Ohana Invite You to Call Haunani Your Home Away From Home Today
A few days after closing and our deep cleaning of the property, we had our very first guests stay for a week. I just talked to them this afternoon; they had a wonderful experience – so much so that they are considering purchasing their own property at Honua Kai. We cordially invite you to visit our VRBO #706074 for detailed information, rates, and booking procedures.
One of the most compelling design elements at Honua Kai is the implementation of the wide opening Nanna doors (above photo) which make the living area feel even larger, they invite outdoors in, and creates the constant reminder of how privileged you are to be where you are in the moment.
Haunani will comfortably sleep two adults in the king bedroom with ensuite bathroom and another 2 smaller humans on the full sized pull out sofa sleeper in the living room. It is equipped with a full kitchen with just about all of the comforts and gadgets you need. We stock the home with beach cooler bags, a couple of boogie boards, beach towels, a couple beach umbrellas, and beach chairs as the Pacific playground is a short elevator ride and a 1 minute walk away.

“Winter” Weather in Maui is Much Better
I felt bad a couple times when talking to Eric Roger as we went through the purchasing process and he would say to me “It’s not too bad today, it’s up to 9 degrees.” My spine shuttered and I was taken aback over 10 years ago when I was in business school in Boston – it seemed like the sun would never come out again and winter would never end. I do have to give myself the proverbial pinch when something in my day throws me off track and I begin to grumble – it doesn’t get much better than calling Maui home, I was born/raised here and it never gets old.
Working with Eric and Joulet was a memorable and rewarding experience; Megan and I are looking forward to strengthening our bond even further as we maximize their investment’s rental potential.
Maui is Warm & Comfortable, Honua Kai is Hot & Competitive!
The Honua Kai market is hot and very competitive – we literally had a full price signed written offer delivered within 1 hour of Konea 614 hitting the market and it still took effort to garner an acceptance.
I am deeply in tune with the Honua Kai market and am aware of a number of opportunities that are not currently listed on the market but are for sale. If you are looking for a client first agency relationship with honesty, integrity, in depth/inside market knowledge, and strong negotiation skills – I offer my helping hand to you. I promise to make it as an enjoyable, seamless, and rewarding process for you.
