The practice of a real estate agent providing a client with a housewarming gift is not uncommon. But KBT Realty Group of Wilmington is shifting gears in 2020. For every closing that occurs during the calendar year, the organization will donate a brand-new bicycle to be given to a child in need in the greater Cape Fear area.
