I wish this magazine was in print when we moved to town! It would have been so helpful to us during a time when we needed some help getting settled into our new home and town.

Kina is a great businessperson, of course, but more than that, she is someone worth getting to know as a human being and a friend. It was this intuition that led my company to sign an agreement with her, and it proved to be a great decision! Not only is she exactly the person that she at first appeared to be, but the magazine has been exactly as described too - helping spread the word about my business. After three + years, I'm happy to report that not only am I grateful for Kina's friendship; I'm grateful for the opportunity to reach new movers to our area. Advertising with Kina just works!
