Here in Hawai‘i, oftentimes, the market doesn’t necessarily reflect the overall quality of homes in the islands. There are special residences that exude history, feature interesting architecture, and are located in desirable neighborhoods. That’s because, like treasures, these homes are usually kept within families.
