On the Real Estate front, I want to share with you that 518 Kimo Dr just sold! The sellers were happy to receive an offer a hair shy of their list price and close the process in just over a couple months. The buyers are also stoked. Just goes to show no matter the market conditions, proper pricing will always get results! Always grateful for smooth processes.
