The Perfect Gift
Over the last few months, I’ve been so proud to share news of my team’s successes with you. The truth is, we’ve been very blessed. Our local real estate market is on fire and we’ve been extremely fortunate to help so many buyers fulfill their dreams. Sellers are excited too; shorter listing times and inching prices have encouraged some big smiles! Real estate is one of the few bright spots in the pandemic environment.
But not all small businesses are enjoying a surge. The truth is, many are struggling to keep up and very few are at 100% capacity. That’s why I am honored to be invited to help promote other small businesses in our area and help bring some of that spark back to the community.
On Saturday, November 7, 2020, my team and I will be supporting the 4th Annual Fort Hamer Bridge Run. The 2020 race benefits The Parrish Foundation, Manatee County Youth Rowing, and Parrish Community High School Athletic Boosters and helps create a forum for local runners and businesses to connect with a shared passion.
My superstar agents agree this is much more than a feel-good exercise. The signature event means a lot to our community. So, when we were asked by the Parrish Foundation to donate (100) $25 gift cards to be given to participants in support of other local, independently owned businesses, of course we said “yes!” What a wonderful opportunity to help showcase our favorite restaurant owners and retail shops!
If you receive one of our gift cards to a local business, please spread the love. Spend over and above the $25 face value, tell your friends about the great food, rave about the awesome products or customer service excellence. Visit them again and consider paying it forward. Maybe consider purchasing a gift card of your own to give over the holidays. It really is the perfect gift. Your purchase helps a small business owner succeed and gives your recipient an opportunity to experience one of our many wonderful community offerings.
In the recent Presidential debate, the question was asked, “What will bring us together?” The response was, “Success will bring us together…” and I believe that is true. Supporting our friends and colleagues makes us all stronger! Imagine what we can accomplish if we prop up one another up heading into 2021.
Salute our Veterans and happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you to everyone that has supported our small business over the years.
