Beautiful pre-1960s architecture with spectacular mountain views, everyday showers and rainbows, colorful plants and flowers, a strong local sense with little transience, and many multi-generational residents.
Manoa, like many Honolulu neighborhoods, is made up of an entire valley that stretches from Manoa Falls at the inland end to King Street. Even during the dry season, the valley receives practically daily rain, making it lushly vegetated — but the valley walls are frequently dry. Rainbows in the valley are prevalent.
The area is made up of low-rise condominiums and individual residences established before the 1960s. The University of Hawai’i at Manoa, the University of Hawai’i System’s flagship campus, is located in Manoa. In Manoa, the University includes a number of academic and student living areas.
Manoa Elementary School, Noelani Elementary School, Punahou School, Mid-Pacific Institute, Saint Francis School, and a few tiny, private pre-schools are among the other educational institutions in Manoa.
The Manoa Marketplace, which has a farmer’s market several days a week, is the city’s main retail district. Housing has been built on the steeper areas of the Diamond Head side valley wall in recent years.
Manoa’s attractiveness stems in part from its stately, ancient mansions. Malama O Manoa organizes a yearly walking tour of the area’s historic residences if you want to see some of the area’s most beautiful mansions.
Of course, higher property values are associated with better location, amenities, and architectural treasures. Last month, the median sales price for a single-family house in Manoa was $986,000. This is according to the Honolulu Board of Realtors. According to a fast MLS search, the most inexpensive home in the neighborhood is now a $440,000 teardown, while the most expensive listing is $2,875,000.
Solana will do what it takes to sell your home and get you in to the house of your dreams. She went over and beyond to help us sell our townhouse AND helped us buy a beautiful home in Kapolei. Solana makes this whole process easy.
Solana has been a great asset to my home but I g and selling experience. She has integrity, knowledge and experience in this field. We are so grateful to have worked with her.
Working with Solana put all of my first time home buying worries at ease. She is thorough, communicative, honest and an extremely hard worker. She stayed in cadence with me every step of the way. I will definitely work with her again if/when I have the opportunity to invest in other properties.
Solana has been a wonderful help in renting out our home. It was our first time and she guided us through the paperwork and process. When we needed anything fixed she had great recommendations. Overall we are very happy with her and her team.
Solana is a great realtor. She was good at listening to what we wanted and was patient with us as we changed our minds, changed neighborhoods and back again. She was very responsive to all forms of communication; email, text, phone call, etc. We were still on the mainland when we started our home search and she sent listings and visited homes on our behalf before we even arrived back on Oahu. Her level of service, professionalism and integrity were top notch!! This was very important to us as the community in Hawaii is very small and everyone knows everyone.
I worked with Solana for several years while we searched for the perfect home. Solana was so patient throughout the process, always making time for us and keeping us up to date on the market. Once we became serious about purchasing a home, Solana always did her due diligence on identifying properties for us, really going above and beyond to cater to our needs. She helped our offer get accepted on a perfect home and couldn't have been more knowledgeable about the process, always answering all of my questions throughout the entire transaction. I highly recommend working with Solana and look forward to working with her again in the future!
I met Solana while looking to rent an apartment. She actually took the time to help me and was able to find a great loan program that allowed me to BUY! I'm spending less then how much I was willing to spend on a rental. Now that I have been here a year, I have gained equity. Best decision I have ever made! Thank you Solana!
To say that working with Solana was a pleasure would be an understatement. She not only went above and beyond along the process made us feel like we were the most important task for her. This was important to me being a single mom as Solana was determined to find a safe place for my daughter to call home. She bought my daughter a new bed because she knew we were sharing a bed. She also bought us things for the house and I cannot thank her enough for all she has done. Solana will always be my go to agent and now a true friend.
This letter is to express my complete satisfaction and appreciation to Solana Grover. The recent sale of my condo went very smoothly. He went over the contract with me until I was completely satisfied. I was so stressed moving out of the county and she did EVERYTHING. She even paid for my place to be painted, as she knew I was going through a hard time. I'm forever thankful, Solana you did it!
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Solana Grover during both the purchase and sale of my home here in Hawaii. As a Physician, I appreciate the value of hard work and dedication, and can attest that she will surpass your expectations. She is detail oriented, accommodating, trustworthy, and has years of experience behind her. If you are buying or selling your property, you want Solana on your side!
