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.

Hi folks - I have a great short sale negotiator. Does anyone have underwater leads they're not going to work or bother with? If I can get the price I need, then we can both win.....

Hello. Is there any definitive guide on comparing API connections for mobile apps? I need to compare and contrast different APIs of places for our app in progress, essentially FourSquare vs Facebook's current API vs Google's current API vs Factual, etc. Thank you.

I understand this is a basic meatball question for many people, if not most, in this community, but what is the best tool for monitoring rankings over time and top keywords of the domains I'm about to start rolling out? Just GWT/GA? Ahrefs.com? Seo Moz?

I'm not a full time SEO pro nor do I want to be, but I do want to track rankings and keyword data over time, especially as I'm getting these sites out of the gates. Thank you.

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

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.
