Another Zillow Published Review for Gary Mooers


Summary of their experience:  "I don’t normally write online reviews, but I had to share my experience with Gary because of his knowledge, service and expertise. I’m no stranger to real estate transactions. In fact my wife is a realtor in another state. So we did all of our own research and found a few properties that we wanted to see. Gary was super easy to work with off the bat. He didn’t have us sign a buyers agreement. Instead he earned our business and trust with his professionalism and vast knowledge of the Maui market. When it came time to make an offer, he insisted on a price that he thought would be a great place to start the negotiation. Much to our surprise, the offer was accepted - without counters. To say it was a smooth and easy escrow was an understatement.  There are many realtors to choose from, but in my opinion having Gary Mooers as your agent gives you the advantage of having the best agent on Maui on your side. Gary has the incredible skill of being ALL BUSINESS, while also being helpful, charismatic and genuine - all at the same time. If we ever decide to sell any RE on Maui, He would make an excellent seller’s agent for all the same reasons that make him great for buyers. He’s an excellent communicator and is tough and firm, yet completely respectful and affable. I recommend Gary 100% without hesitation. You should give him a call, you will not be disappointed."

Komoda Store, A Makawao Treat


Up at the top of Baldwin Avenue in historic Makawao town are the best pastries available on Maui at Komoda Store. You've gotta be sure to plan ahead and get there early or you will be left behind. This family run business is frequented by travelers, a bike stop for excursions, and a stop for the local aunty or uncle to get their newspaper and a weekly treat. Whether it be cream puffs or stick donuts, pies, or cinnamon snail, this place is a gem and they sell out daily. Only open mornings until about lunchtime, closed Wednesdays and Sundays. No website here. This place has been in business for over 75 years and is as old school as it gets.

Maui - A Great Place to Invest in Real Estate

Ever wondered what it would be like to invest in a vacation home somewhere where the weather is always good and your money is safe? Just a 5 hour flight from the West Coast is the closest to paradise that you'll get it in the states. The real estate is affordable and the sense of community and  people are "Everyday" - just like you and me. Feel closer to nature here. Take a hike in the Makawao Upcountry forest or a paddle in the crystal blue Pacific ocean - or both. Spend time getting to know others and learn a lot about yourself in the process. The entertainment venues shift to Friday night lights or street fairs and festivals, surrounded by crafters galore, yogis and health-concious, epic surf and endless sunsets. It's almost a downshift into the perfect lane.
