I moved to Maui in 2010 chasing the sunshine and beautiful weather. As a “fresh” college graduate I needed a break so I came to Maui to take a few months off. It only took a few weeks for me to fall in love with the island and I’ve been here ever since. I am here to help you achieve your Maui ownership goals!



Owner Testimonials

“Barry, Thomas and Steve are exceptional at responding quickly  to potential and current  guests which has lead to my units being almost fully booked, and all five star reviews.  They are very detailed and ensure that everything in the unit is working well and that the guest expectations are exceeded.  As a past Comptroller,  I really appreciate the owner portal and monthly statements which allow access to all past and future reservations, and clear detail of all revenues and expenses.  They also arrange for and oversee any needed repairs, they personally take care of the minor things.  When I arrive to stay, my unit is always in excellent shape and leaves me to relax and enjoy which is the reason I ventured into Maui property ownership!  You honestly can’t go wrong with MLR, they are simply the best at this!”

“Wow! You and Barry are beyond exceptional. That is incredible! Thank you both so much for all of the efforts and hard work that you both provide to  owners, clients and other personnel around the resort. I can’t say enough good things about you and you bring me much comfort in knowing that my property is in such good hands. Besides the business aspect, I know that you both are highly ethical people and can be counted on to always do the right thing. Those values bring reputation and pride that dollars cannot provide. “
