Economic Summit 2019 event flyer

The first Annual US-Hawaiʻi Real Estate Economic Summit will be held at the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort on Tuesday, April 16, 2019.

The event is presented by Wailea Realty A Boutique of Windermere Real Estate and Title Guaranty.

Matthew Gardner, Chief Economist of Windermere Real Estate Corporate Office will speak on the US Market; and Hawaiʻi Economist Paul Brewbaker with TZ Economics will speak on the Hawaiʻi Market.

The goal is to spark conversations on the impacts of global, national and local economic trends. This conversation is for local community leaders, business owners, and individuals, to help them understand how to respond and react to these changes.

Organizers say the event provides an opportunity for the attendees to:

  • Learn about the fluctuations in interest rates and their impact on Housing and Real Estate
  • Explore if a recession is just around the corner.
  • Learn what factors impact our local and national housing markets.
  • Discover opportunities and challenges, a changing market may present.

Check in is at 9:30 a.m., with the summit to run from 10 a.m. to noon.  Coffee and refreshments will be served.


Tickets are $20 and are available at EventBrite.  For more information, email [email protected]
