Nearly every Realtor in Moab gathered at a farewell party on Thursday, Dec. 8, to honor local Realtor Joe Kingsley. Kingsley performed his final duty on the job last week, swearing in the Realtors board’s new members.

He has worked in southeastern Utah as a Realtor since 1974, developing Castle Valley as his first project. Over the years, many more realty transactions followed.

Kingsley currently serves on the Grand County Planning Commission, and his wife Britta said that he will continue to be “very involved” in city and county activities in the future.
