The summer is a busy time for Paradise Realty up here in Gleniffer Lake, but this past weekend we took some time out for one of my favorite occasions: the customer appreciation party we throw every summer. As usual, more than 400 people were on hand – men, women, and children of all ages – to enjoy the sun, take in the beauty of the lake, and generally have a good time.
Why do we go to the expense of providing free food, drinks, music, and all kinds of games to people who have bought or rented property from us in the past, along with their friends and family? On the one hand, I suppose it’s probably good business. As the number one Realtor in Gleniffer Lake, it’s always nice to thank all of the people who make our continued business possible.
More than that, though, it’s a chance to catch up with friends and see how they’re doing. If there’s one thing I wish more people understood about the Gleniffer Lake community, it’s that we are just that – a true community. There aren’t as many places around as there used to be where you can wave to your neighbors, have them wave back, or even get into a real conversation about how they are doing. As special as our beautiful lake is, not to mention the boating and recreational activities, that kind of friendship and friendliness is one of the things that I treasure most about being here.
Of course, there are a lot of other things we love, too, and it was great to see so many of our neighbors out enjoying the occasion. From kids enjoying the face painter and balloon artists to the lighthearted games of bocce ball and horseshoes, I’m pleased to say the day was a big success. If you were one of the many who stopped by, let me say once more that it was great to see you, and thank you all for helping us to build such a successful real estate business in Gleniffer Lake.
And if you weren’t here celebrating with us, then I hope next year we’ll be seeing you at our client appreciation party!
