Two Miracle Homes Sold so Far in 2018

We’ve sold two property recently, Coba Lodo 22 and Sero Pela 12-B that were also both Miracle Home listings. This is especially exciting for us because a Miracle Home listing means that the seller of the property will make donation to Progreso Casa Cuna, a home for children in need, when the property sells – and Re/Max Aruba will match that donation! Even the buyer is invited to participate and make a donation as well. Our gratitude to Niek de Munck Mortier and Edwin Hekman for selling these properties and helping raise funds for a very worthy cause!
