TAMPA, FL (July 22, 2014) – The Dikman Company announced today a land sale in Mulberry, Fla.

After remaining dormant for several years, The Dikman Company represented the buyer for 1211 Prairie Mine Rd. in Mulberry in Polk County.

“This was an interesting transaction for us,” explained Bob Dikman, Chairman and CEO of The Dikman Company. “The Mulberry land sale required some research to connect the buyer with the seller. Our client (the buyer) was a local contractor looking for a space to store crushed concrete, fill dirt and ground asphalt.” The Dikman Company found the perfect industrial site, but the owners of the property were unknown. The Dikman Company helped locate the owner of the property who was out of the country.

“The art of being a good real estate agent usually includes some detective work. Fortunately, today’s technology allows us to speed up the search process in cases like this one.” Dikman continued.
