Happy Holidays from the Agent Insider staff and everyone at engageRE! We would like to encourage you to make the most of this season and fill your Agent Insight pages with fun and festive submissions.
Beautiful decorations, holiday lights, and annual holiday events present themselves to you every day from now through New Year’s. Choose your favorite neighborhoods to highlight, and add jolly seasonal posts to those pages. You want to show these areas looking their best all through the year.
Draw attention to glowing decorations in subdivisions, at shopping venues, and on downtown streets. Christmas plays, parades, concerts, and school programs all add color to the season. We’ve received many wonderful holiday photos throughout the years. Take a look at this beautiful selection:
December also offers wonderful subjects for your written submissions. Maybe the city park lines their walking paths with luminaries or perhaps there is a neighborhood loaded with lights and decorations that is the “Candy Cane Lane” in your community. Tell the story in a chatty, personal tone, use first person style, and you’ll have an excellent post about why you love the area. For inspiration, look at this fine holiday article submitted by Mandi Gipson, RE/MAX Connections in Ottawa, KS.
I Love the Annual Christmas Parade
One of my favorite memories of the holiday season while growing up in Ottawa, was the Christmas Parade. The smiling faces, the cups of hot chocolate and the loud horn of the fire truck. These are the sights and sounds that come to my mind when I think of the annual Christmas Parade. I was always excited yet nervous when the fire trucks would go by. “How cool is that big red fire truck,” I would say and then, just about that time, the loud horn would honk! The local bands that marched and played their music brought joy and smiles to the crowd. The end of the parade was always special, as Santa Claus made his appearance. At the end of the parade, a walk down Main Street and lunch at one of the local eateries was a perfect end to a great time in downtown Ottawa! It was when I was a child and still is today!
After the first of the year, continue to fill your Agent Insight pages with lots of winter photos and posts. Showing your community in all four seasons makes for a richer, fuller portrait of the area. Sledders, skaters, snowmen, and all kinds of frosty scenes will be available for weeks. Take advantage! Don’t worry if your part of the country isn’t snowy. You can still make the most of the season. Look at this winter scene from the Gulf Coast showing a sand “snowman.” Great photo!
