The year was 1962, and it was in the height of the popular scooter race era on the Isle of Man. My father decided, with his younger brother on the queen seat behind him, to not only participate in the race, but to make the journey on his Vespa scooter all the way from southern Sweden.
This holiday season, I purchased approximately 90% of all my gifts on Amazon. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Being reliant on e-commerce is not something that happened overnight. When I was in college, it started with textbooks. Then when CompUSA shattered, I started ordering electronics. Then books. Now everything else.
These last few months we’ve had the pleasure to work together with someone who is not only a realtor and broker, but also a visionary. It’s been exciting, challenging, and rewarding for everyone involved. Although we’ve been working with realtors in the past, this was the first time we were asked to connect a website with the MLS, map all fields, and sync (nightly) not only the active listings, but the complete library of listings within the Hawaii MLS. Approximately 150,000 property listings. That’s not a small database we’re dealing with.
