LETTER FROM KBR PRESIDENT, Julian A. Coiner:
Aloha Kauai Board of REALTORS® Membership,
Since Mayor Kawakami issued his March 4, 2020 Emergency Proclamation in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, members and affiliate members have reached out to KBR, the Board of Directors and directly to me as your 2020 Board President seeking information and clarity on navigating these unchartered waters. We want you all to know that KBR is here for you and willing to listen and serve.
Members and Affiliate Members have a variety of concerns ranging from the use of professional photographers and other vendors, to explanations on how the Mayor’s and Governor’s orders impact REALTORS®. We’ve also received many questions related to real estate contracts as well as requests for resources that provide financial assistance for independent contractors, companies and employees.
On April 29, 2020, the entire state aligned under Governor’s Ige’s Sixth Supplementary Proclamation. In other words, the state came together under the Governor’s guidance rather than each island offering its unique orders. On the State’s website we note the following April 29, 2020 remark, “With Hawai‘i’s low rate of coronavirus infections, Governor Ige says state and county leaders are looking at easing restrictions and reopening the local economy.
