Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers was one of four Sponsors invited to participate in the first Vistage International 2016 Honolulu Economic Summit, held February 24, 2016 at the prestigious Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki.
The featured keynote speaker was acclaimed economic veteran, Brian Beaulieu, author of "Prosperity In The Age of Decline". His presentation covered historical, current, and projected economic factors affecting the Honolulu marketplace. Honolulu ranks above the U.S. average in many of the economic categories covered, driven by strong demographics and a diverse workforce.
Mr. Beaulieu stressed the strength of the real estate market here, in both residential and commercial properties, with projected sales prices continuing to rise through 2030. In our current low interest rate environment, and continued rise in sale prices, it is a "Go Now" opportunity in the economic cycle he said should not be overlooked.
