Real Estate Maui Style EDITOR'S PAGE

 

Dear Readers:

Aloha and Welcome to October 2009 on Maui!  A spectacular time to be visiting our island paradise. Although our “World Famous” Halloween event on Front Street is still in limbo, because of fringe community elements, there are still things to do!! Oct 1st – 4th “87th Annual Maui County Fair” – the oldest and BEST fair in Hawaii with lots of rides, games, exhibits, entertainment, tons of food booths, parade, talent contest and fun! Oct 1st – 4th “Maui Orchid Society Show” held in conjunction with the County Fair a huge array of orchids, definitely a must see; Oct 25th – Oct 26th “Xterra World Championship” a fun and challenging 5K and 10K run kicks off the weekend with an off road thriller race including 1.5K ocean swim, 30K mountain bike course and 11K trail run.

Information from State of Hawaii DBEDT 

As always…Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to read our magazine and or stopping by our web site (www.realestatemauistyle.net or www.livingmaui.com).  For over 25 years we have tried to distinguish our magazine from other “catalog publications” in providing you articles on culture, history and all aspects of what makes Maui a magical and special place...in essence to be “LivingMaui.” This coupled with current statistical data, a pretty neat website, great cover photos and the BEST advertisers around I think accomplishes this. We constantly strive to make your participation a memorable experience. If you have specific real estate questions on any of the properties or services mentioned throughout our magazine please call our advertisers direct.  If you contact any of our great advertisers let them know you saw their ad in Real Estate Maui Style”, the only Unique Maui real estate magazine.  See you in November!       

Sincerely,

Leil Koch
