As always…Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to read our magazine and or stopping by our web site (www.maui-style.com).  Make sure to check out the PDF version of the magazine on the web! Your continued participation and support of our publication, in all forms, is essential to our success.  For over 20 years we have tried to distinguish our magazine from other “cookie cutter publications” in providing you articles on culture, history and all aspects of what makes Maui a magical and special place. 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 fill out the reply card or call our advertisers direct.  Don’t forget about our “Design Focus” section, you’ll obtain GREAT ideas for your new or existing property & our NEW Who’s Who in Maui Real Estate!
