We wanted to let our owners and rental clients know of temporary changes to business operations on Maui due to the COVID-19 pandemic, commonly known as coronavirus.
The County of Maui, through its Public Health Emergency Rules, has issued a stay at home / work at home order for all residents and visitors as 3/25/20. All people on island must shelter in place at home or in lodgings, except for a narrow scope of essential services. Destination Maui Realty, LLC closed to the public on 3/20/20, the date of the last Public Health Emergency Rules.
While closed to the public, our business is still operating. We will respond to phone and email messages and put updated information out through our website and Facebook page. Also, our agents are set up to work from home to continue serving our customers, including completing rental transactions.
U.S. real estate is still strong, spurred in part by historically low mortgage interest rates. On island residents need to move into available rental condos and homes. However, there is much we can do together electronically- over the phone and internet with renters, buyers and sellers- this is a normal part of our process. When it is essential to view a property, we will exercise an abundance of caution, hygiene and social distancing, reviewing requests on a case by case basis and in coordination with local regulations.
Our hearts go out to all community members facing this challenging time. Having been in business over 40 years, we have been through many serious challenges. We will weather this as well.

Because of partnerships the Maui Food Bank has in place, their buying power to purchase food and other essentials is greater than we could do ourselves.
