Aloha! My name is Kathleen Ramey.
I am on Maui because I love it here. There is nowhere else in the world I’d rather be. I was born in Ohio and moved to California when I was 17 years old. After I raised my children in the Bay Area I moved to Kauai for a short time. I have been on Maui for 17+ years.
This is the final destination. I loved Kauai for its beauty but Maui has the beauty and the lifestyle. There are at least 18 micro climates here and you can enjoy the low populated wild side of the island or bustling Lahaina within a day. If you like it hot you’ll love Lahaina which translates to “cruel sun”. You’re almost guaranteed great weather on the “West Side”. I prefer the West Side but if you like cool weather you’ll love Kula or Haiku. If you get tired of weather that hovers around “perfect” most of the time, pack up the cooler and drive to Hana or Upcountry and get some wonderful doses of Mother Nature.
Some people really love the change of seasons. I feel that when I don’t have the change of seasons, I don’t feel the years rolling by with the change in seasons. I love perpetual spring and summer! I can swim in the ocean nearly everyday of the year if I choose to do so. If I want to feel a change of weather I drive to another part of the Island.
In my opinion, “The West Side is the best side” and Lahaina is the heartbeat of the Island. There are so many Art Galleries, Restaurants and Resorts to choose from. if you want night life, it’s here. Maui is friendly, fun and prosperous. You don’t feel isolated here. We have Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, Walgreens, Longs, Safeway, the Vitamin Shoppe and nice furniture stores. Kahului has Whole Foods, Costco,Target, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Macy’s, Sears,Wal-Mart, Kmart, Old Navy, Pier one, and more.
Besides helping other People buy and sell, I have made several purchases for myself on Maui and feel very confident that I have invested my money in a good solid market. I love to research the Real Estate Market. I’m addicted to it. I love to share good things. If Maui sounds good to you give me a call and I’ll do my best to help you find a piece of Paradise.
