Fabulous Team Restoration Gives New Life to a Neglected Executive Home

by Charmaine Blount

Dave Kiddy, owner of Real Estate Investors of the Triad, had a vision. Randy Hopkins, owner of R.S. Hopkins Construction, had a plan. Together they recently partnered on a diamond-in-the-rough restoration project on Hobbs Road in Greensboro, NC.

The whole property was hidden by a forest of trees, shrubs, and weeds. The inside was sadly neglected by the previous home owners. A major facelift was a must!

From the investment aspect of securing the property and the expertise of rehab restoration, this neglected home has become the new shiny gem on the block.

Some would ask “Are You Crazy?” Dave and Randy’s response would be a resounding “NO!” They like to think outside the box. Team Kiddy and Hopkins bring to the table a hassle-free vision for investment restoration projects.

See these before and after pictures. Then call them for YOUR restoration project–big or small!
