My wife have a greqt offer to work in Hawaii.
I am an MLO currently working for a bank, but I have significantly more time manageing on the broker side. Any good suggestions for banks or lenders to seek out in Hawaii. I would really be looking for a sales manager/ market manager position, but would be willing to look at an MLO position with the right company. I do very well with wealth clients.

Very very very very expensive.
Hawaii away from the tourists is rather unpleasant Vinnie, go there, get off the beach, into town and talk to cops.

Hey Vin - you should connect with Tropical Breeze who is in HI. Do you have his contact info?

Hawaii pretty much sucks.
It's not much more expensive than los Angeles if you are a renter and not doing any rehab.
The natives and the long term transplants generally suck at anything requiring humanity.
The natives are as bad as any other reservation rat.
You'll have to see for yourself.
Tell us which island.
Trop is on about 39 minutes from pearl harbor on the backside.
I'm headed to kehei maui later this month.

Hey Vinnie. You can't watch the Browns in Hawaii! But you do get the Pro Bowl.
Brush up on your high rise condo guides along with volcano guidelines!
What kind of work does the wifee do?

Vin, you have mail.

Aloha from Hawaii. It really depends on which island as each is unique in business and culture. I run the home loans division for one of the major local banks and happy to share some thoughts. There is no national bank branch presence here. Feel free to shoot me your email and I'll catch up with you directly.
