Mihaela’s Selling Philosophy

“Homes are the expression of collected day-to-day experiences. They provide a place of refuge and memory making. From within our dwellings, our lives unfold and are invented, while personal beliefs are explored and expressed. Rituals are created and re-enacted daily, weekly, or monthly, responding to our interpretations of how to live in the world.”Lori Ryker – “Off the Grid Homes”

Mihaela Stoops R(B), specializes in real estate properties in  West Maui’s finest neighborhoods and communities.  As a former European diplomatic negotiator, Mihaela knows how to make a home purchase or sale transaction a ‘win win’ for both parties.

Time is essential in real estate! Always being prepared to do business, efficiently, proactively and technologically advanced gives Mihaela the edge in taking advantage of existing opportunities. In approaching new listings, Mihaela believes in the concept of identifying the target audience of likely buyers and creating a cohesive and comprehensive marketing strategy to reach those potential buyers via multiple channels.

Keeping current with economic and political events at local, state and international levels is also an important component of Mihaela’s philosophy – she understands that all  those factors can significantly influence financial decisions for both buyers and sellers.
