212 Market restaurant sold




Friends make the best clients, especially when it comes to the Moses family.

When the matriarch of the family, Margaret Moses, died in 2015, the soul of 212 Market went with her.

“We tried to continue the 20-plus year tradition for our devoted customers,” says former owner Susan Moses, “but the heart of the restaurant was gone.”

After taking a year to consider their options, Moses and her sister, Sally Moses, called their friend, Keller Williams East Brainerd Realtor Maggie Armstrong.

“Before we stood up from the table, we knew we were in the right hands,” says Susan Moses.

Armstrong worked closely with Keller Williams Realtor Judy Webster on finding a buyer. Using their combined skills, they attracted an offer in less than 30 days. “We started finalizing plans to close in nine months,” says Armstrong.

Then, two weeks from the nine-month deadline, the buyers changed their minds

However, all was not lost. Armstrong and Webster went back to the second and third offers and were able to complete the sale on Aug. 12.

“We’re thankful to Maggie and Judy for making this time in our lives one that’s not only been bearable but also profitable and easy,” say the Moses sisters. “Don’t miss an opportunity to work with Maggie and Judy, and you, too, will become great friends for life.”
