• Donna,

    First I want to say that I am very impressed with your professionalism. I have worked with a number of realtors over the years, but you are the best so far. You have read me correctly, I have no interest in getting into a bidding war. I agree I would prefer to just let the offer proceed and see what happens. Again thank you for your excellence. If the offer does not go through, I am very interested in this home.

We made an offer, Donna helped line up nearly streamlined financing and my wife is a happy Polynesian again.

    Who knows, maybe her husband Chris will take me tuna fishing someday.

    Mahalo Donna and much Aloha!!!!

Was out of the place & on the road by 11, joining a long cue of vehicles heading toward downtown Hilo on Kalanianole, which runs right alongside the bay. It was a strange feeling, roused from slumber, on the road with a throng of others, a refugee from an oncoming potential disaster.

    At Donna's place, which is safely ma'uka (inland/up-slope), above Hilo at about 500 ft or so elevation, I met fellow vacationers Thelma & Larry of Eugene, Oregon, who were also staying in one of Donna's rentals, & who had also been offered refuge by her.
