I understand the analytics battle is never-ending.... is Flurry better than Mixpanel than Google Analytics, etc. I've been reading articles and will probably not know if we're making the proper choice until we actually implement one and see how it performs....

I'm looking into Flurry as the first one to test, but does it require us to place ads in our app? That's something we're not willing to do right now. #mobileappdevelopment   #analytics

Wow, Bachman is such a clown and Wolf had no control over this debate at all. Man (Sanders) vs child (Bachman). Sanders should have gotten up and told Wolf to invite him back when he's prepared to conduct a mature debate.

FYI for those of you on #Oahu , I have a 546 sqft 1br leasehold unit in 1448 Young Street coming available in roughly a week. I also have a 2/2 in Kalele Kai that will be ready in roughly 3 weeks. Both will hit the MLS - if you have buyers, let me know ahead of time! #hawaiirealestate

I'm expanding into multiple metro markets nationwide. If you're a real estate wholesaler with deals, check to see if I'm interested. If you know someone who needs to sell their house to avoid a foreclosure or any other reason, let me know. I can buy houses in many metro areas coast to coast and am looking to buy more right now.....no fees, no commissions, no repairs required..... #realestate   #foreclosure

Hello. We have an app that our latest developer put in the Play store for us. The problem is that we have 5 app images we want to be used as the screen shots. We want the same 5 images to appear to a user whether they are viewing the Play store on a phone, 7-inch tablet or 10-inch tablet/desktop. Our developer says that if he puts all 5 images in EACH section (sized accordingly) -- then a viewer will actually see 15 screen shots (3 duplicates of each of the 5 images). That seems absurd to me. Is he actually correct or does he not know what he's talking about? #androiddev   #playstore

Usually I put the tablet-specific screens in a tablet category and the rest in a phone category.
This way there are no duplicates and tablet users can still immediately see that the application is optimized for tablets.

If anyone has questions about private mortgage lending, let me know or comment below. It's a great real estate investment tool for those who don't have time to do actual flipping themselves or just prefer passive investments. I've had a bunch of folks ask me about it lately, so I thought it might be a nice topic to open up here to the group.... #privatemoneylending   #realestateinvestment

Hello. We have a T2i and are considering upgrading. Would the 70d be sufficient or is worth the extra $500 to get the 7d Mark II? Is the 7dM2 overkill? I'm not sure what the clear advantages would be when the main subject of our photos is our baby daughter.  #canonphotography

If the main subject of you photography is mainly your baby daughter I am surprised that you need to upgrade the body. I have a T2i and I have found it does all I need it to do. I would much rather spend money and get a better lens for the body.

I just acquired sellmyhomehawaii.com at GoDaddy auction for $12. So not only was it available for purchase, but it was actively being marketed for a buyer.The auction ended and I was the only bidder for the starting price -- $12. I'll probably create a second site instead of having it redirect to my http://oahuhomebuyers.com, just to crush the SEO rankings even more so. Oh, I also bought webuyhouseshonolulu.com this morning for $12 because it was just sitting there. Maybe I'll redirect that one to OHB or create a landing page. I don't know.... but I do know that those URLs are now forever mine

Low hanging fruit, real estate professionals. Low hanging fruit.....

Thanks for the video, Brandon. Once you get the hang of how to phrase the opportunity and build a track record of deals, then private lenders tend to find you instead of you having to chase them down. It's how I fund just about all of my deals.

I've been a bit behind in going through the posts that G+ automatically flags -- there should be more approved posts now. Hopefully, those of you who are frequent posters should now automatically be green-lighted for future posts. That doesn't mean spam away, of course, but it should eliminate getting sandboxed and waiting for my approval.

I would still like to see more people taking advantage of this community. Don't underestimate the power of Google+, both in terms of traffic and SEO.

Introduction
Hello and welcome. I've had an adventurous and interesting life to date. I hope that here on Google+, I can engage with others to share our stories, passions, expertise, pursuits, goals and dreams.

I own/run Oahu Home Buyers and Big Rock Investments, Hawaii real estate investment companies based in Honolulu. We buy, sell, rehab and wholesale residential property. My team specializes in buying houses in Hawaii for cash from homeowners in difficult situations, whether they need to stop foreclosure or sell a distressed property quickly. We also put these properties back on the market either fully rehabbed or in their current condition at discount market prices, creating great investment opportunities. We buy all our houses via private mortgage lenders, allowing certain investors to place their funds in our local house flips instead of riding a risky stock market.

I have been mentored by and work with the real estate professionals from FortuneBuilders who you may have seen on A&ETV's hit show "Flip This House". They are our advisers and our friends and were recently ranked the #1 business education program nationwide by Inc. magazine. Their business model is our business model and I'm personally proud to bring their exact same business model right here to Hawaii.

For more information, CALL (808) 377-4379 or visit www.oahuhomebuyers.com

I'm also the Director of User Interface for the new smartphone app Fun Things! This free app for iPhone and Android lets us find all the fun and entertaining activities wherever we are, either in our hometown or when traveling. We also get live real-time deals from local "fun" business who need more customers! Download it today and let me know what you think - it's free. :)

Aside from business, I love hiking Oahu's fantastic trails and enjoying the beaches with my lovely wife Nanae.
