Historic George D. Oakley Residence Back on Market

Architectural gems like this don’t often come on the market. In fact, this is the first time since it was built in 1929 that the George D. Oakley house in lower Manoa has been listed for sale. The residence, which was designed by architect Miles H. Gray, an engineer with the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps., is considered one of the state’s best remaining examples of houses built in the English cottage style, and is listed on both the National and State Registers of Historic Places.

So, You Want to Live in the Trump Tower Waikiki Beach Walk?

The Trump International Hotel and Tower Waikiki Beach Walk doesn’t allow open houses, so unless you decide to stay as a hotel guest, you’re not getting in to see the building’s ultra-swanky abodes. Trump’s debut in Waikiki has not been smooth sailing: The condo-hotel, which has 462 units, sold out in record time, but then, as the opening neared, the economy sank deeper into a recession and the buyer cancellations began. Rather than lose the large down payment, many owners chose to close on the properties, only to almost immediately put them back on the market. So, for a while it seemed that the MLS was awash in Trump listings. But things are looking up for Trump. In October, there were 41 units active in MLS, and seven units have sold in the last six months, with an average days-on-market of 54.
