Kapono R. Kobylanski was born in Honolulu, HI, and he grew up in Waipahu, HI. He is a mixed plate, and is made up of 10 different ethnicities including Hawaiian, Polish, Filipino, Irish, Scottish, Portuguese, Chinese, English, American Indian, and Spanish.  Kapono was fortunate to attend 8 public schools all over the island from K-10th grade, and then he went to and graduated from Kamehameha Schools in 2001. He got a full scholarship to attend the University of La Verne (ULV) in Southern California, where he received a Bachelor’s of Science Degree with a Concentration in Finance and a Speech Communication minor. Kapono graduated in the top 7% of his class receiving Magna Cum Laude and Departmental Honors status. 

He started his Finance career working for numerous big-named companies, and then he became the Financial Analyst at First American Title Company for six years.  On the side, Kapono pursued a modeling and acting career for a few years, and the pinnacle of that venture was winning the title of the 6th annual Mr. Philippines USA’09 competition.  

While juggling a part-time and full-time career, he went back to ULV where he got a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with a Concentration in Accounting. Kapono loves travelling, and he was able to travel across the United States and around the world. His experiences in life helps him to understand all people he interacts with.  He got his feet wet with real estate when he bought and sold a home in Rialto, CA. 

His mom & family were featured on A&E’s hit show, Intervention (An EmmyAward-winning American television series), as the first family to be from Oahu, HI on the show.  Kapono was a pivotal person for getting his family on the show, and they strategically overcame the odds that were stacked against them (1 out of 4.83 million chance of making the show per year). 

After living in Southern California for about 11 years, he returned home to Oahu, HI to be near his family and friends back in June 2013. He became the Accounting Manager for Kalihi-Palama Health Center.  Kapono then bought a condo in Makiki (Honolulu, HI) with his wife, and he is a proud step-father with a healthy baby boy coming too.

Will the Hawaii Real Estate Market Shift?

Are we in a seller's market or a buyer's market? Is a shift on the way? We'll answer those questions for you today.

First of all, a seller's market exists when there are more buyers than sellers, inventory is low, and homes are selling quickly, often gathering multiple offers. A buyer's market exists when there are more sellers than buyers, demand is low, and supply is high. In this situation, buyers are able to negotiate aggressively. Keep in mind that results vary from area to area.

The median price for homes in Oahu in 2005 was $590,000; in 2011, it was $575,000, and today, the median price is $710,000. We don't think prices will fall, but the rate of appreciation may decrease.

Right now, we are in a seller's market. Inventory is low, and most of our listings get offers right away. We sell hundreds of homes every year, and this volume of activity gives us a better view of the market than an agent who only does a handful of transactions each year. The best time to sell is when inventory is low, and it is right now.

If you want a free market analysis on what your home is worth, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

Oahu Housing Crunch Eased by ADU's

Today, we want to talk to you about accessory dwelling units, or ADU's.

The Honolulu City Council approved a bill on September 2 that allows for ADU's. An estimated 20,000 Oahu homeowners will soon be able to create secondary housing units on their properties.

Mayor Caldwell is expected to sign the bill shortly. Proponents say this will address the housing rental crisis here on Oahu. This is part of the mayor's plan to create Ohana housing open to more than just family members.

Many of these ADU's will fall within an affordable range. The department of business economic development and tourism estimates that Honolulu's population will grow to more than 1 million people by 2030, which is an 11% increase. ADU's provide extra living space as our population grows.

This change in law should create a low-cost way to facilitate private sector development without costly government subsidies or investment. This bill represents one of the most significant pieces of housing legislation in years.

If you're interested in ADU properties, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
