Real Estate with VWonMaui
When I studied for my Maui real estate license back in 2003, it was for three simple reasons: First, I never again wanted to think about leaving. Second, I needed to make money. Third, after enjoying the expatriate lifestyle in the hospitality industry for almost 18 years, I was determined to find an equal opportunity to combine life and "work". Unlike so many others, I am NOT claiming to be there for "all your real estate needs". Today we own a home and live in Maui Meadows. I found what I like and became an expert Realtor® in the prestigious South Maui resort areas of Makena, Wailea and Kihei. I will go above and beyond if you decide to sell or buy real estate in South Maui.
Shortly after I started with Coldwell Banker Island Properties: Shops At Wailea, it was an honor to be the featured real estate agent on the cover of the Hawaii edition of the Real Estate Executive Magazine. I am a certified Coldwell Banker Previews® International agent and have been ranked on the state of Hawaii's Top100 list of real estate agents published by the Hawaii Business Magazine. What I'm most proud of and greatly appreciate, are my client's endorsements and testimonials! My service oriented background stems from working in the 5-star hotel industry around the world. Over 12 years in the real estate business and lifelong experience with negotiations, have created an impressive portfolio of sold properties.
It's a real German Name
My name is Volker Weiss. First name and last name, no middle initial. I am living my dream here on Maui! Sunshine and swaying palm trees, blue sky and blue ocean. I like blue Kahala shirts, 100% cotton please, blue jeans and blue Maui Jim sunglasses. Lucky me: my favorite color is blue! Certainly not as beautiful as Monica's eyes, but my eyes are blue too. Will prove that in person. Fact is, my life is pretty blue. The child's dream. That simple, life is good.
It has no meaning. The correct pronounciation of my name is not that easy! In German, you speak the "V" in Volker like an "F", and the "W" in Weiss would sound like a "V". Volker Weiss. But you don't have to learn German! While working for a big hotel in Dallas, Texas, in the mid 80s, one of my superiors couldn't handle it anymore either. He started using my initials and introduced me as "VW". Living on Maui, made the name extension very natural. Here on the island, "VWonMaui" or just "VW", are representing much more than only the well-known car brand. They are my names!
Walt Disney & VWonMaui
It was my father, who wanted me to "wake up and stop dreaming!" He had no respect for Donald Duck and my pocket book comic collection. But my world was ruled by hobbits and orcs somewhere in Middle Earth. My hero was J.R.R. Tolkien with his colorful fantasy "Der Herr der Ringe". I was an avid swimmer, rode mountain bikes and motorcycles. When Michael Ende published The Neverending Story, I was convinced that there must be way more to life than I knew.
Much later I learned that, of all people, it was Walt Disney who was credited with the saying "if you can dream it, you can do it". I still have to chuckle! If you are interested, here is an interview with the Real Estate Executive Magazine, that explains my life's story a bit more serious and business-like. I truly believe that Maui is the Best, Maui No Ka Oi. While I did not exactly get here in a VW Van, I sure dreamt about the ultimate escape in something like my Van many times. And yes, I did it. Maui is home!
