So, What Do You Do Here for Fun?

Take advantage of all the summer activities in your area for shooting great photos and writing about the events.  Of course, your clients want to know about real estate, but they also want information about the special events that give a town character and build community.  This season is full of festivals, parades, outdoor theater and musical performances, farmers markets…the calendar is brimming every week.

Keep in mind, your main purpose is not to get people to come to these events.  You want to capitalize on them to interest clients in exploring the area.  Show them how rich and varied the offerings are in your community with your words and pictures.

Here is an excellent example submitted by Thomas “Chopper” Russo from RE/MAX Traditions Real Estate in Oakland,  NJ.  He is highlighting a July 4th event and includes a link to its website.

A Historical Independence Day at Ringwood Manor
Many of us celebrate the 4th of July with BBQs and fireworks. At the historic Ringwood Manor, you can celebrate Independence Day by flashing back to July of 1776. There will be games, crafts and foods, all from the 18th century, as well as dancing and a reading of the Declaration of Independence. The event is taking place from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., so you’ll have time to celebrate the historical way and then end the day with fireworks. For more information and for a schedule of events, please visit the Manor’s website, linked below.

You’ll find opportunities to promote your market areas every week this summer.  Join your friends, take your family and snap some photos for Agent Insight.  You’ll have a great time and your prospects will appreciate learning about what’s happening in your community.  Need further inspiration?  Take a look at these excellent submissions:
