Polly’s Cake

Our Symbol of Celebration

After 18 years and about 1,800 homemade cakes, Polly has retired from the cake business.
She put up her pans!
Our presentation of cakes to you was a celebration of our friendship or the celebration of the home you purchased or sold with The Kiker Team. Very often, it was a celebration of both!
As we thank Polly, for a job very well done, our promise to you is continued, exceptional Real Estate services to each and every one of you!
