Things to Do in San Diego June 2013

Written by Dennis Smith

June is one of my favorite months. The air is fresh, excitement is in the air as kids get out of school and summer activities begin. Sunshine and I are looking forward to the Rock n’ Roll marathon we love the music and food. This year there will be more than 40 bands.  And of course the San Diego County Fair in Del Mar. This month is the Julian Blues Bash at Menghini Winery, the Shakespeare Festival at the Old Globe and the La Jolla Festival of Arts. Lots of things for children and families. Including camps, sports and arts. Bring on Summer!

Spring has arrived and along with it the Carlsbad Flower Fields.

Client Appreciation Party: Jan 2013

Written by Dennis Smith

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — by Marcel Proust

What makes me happy?
   You: our clients.
   You: our clients turned friends.

Twice a year we throw a Client Appreciation Party. Sunshine goes all out with tasty food and treats including my favorite – the chocolate fountain. The days beforehand, our kitchen is busy with friends popping by to help chop, slice, stir and cook what soon will be quite a feast. I love the smells, laughter and chatter coming from the kitchen. I do my best to stay out of the way and focus on business – however, occasionally I must volunteer myself as the taste tester.

Our Winter Client Party and White Elephant Silent Auction offers: Food, Friendship, Fun and Fundraising. I enjoy watching our new & past clients make new friends and swap stories. I’ll share one such story about one of our clients who traveled from Manitoba, Canada, and down the Amazon River by canoe in another blog.

Suffice it to say our parties require lots of helpers to pack and unpack the truck, stack and unstack chairs, decorate and arrange food, tables and raffle items to be aesthetically pleasing, provide music and massage, and register and welcome clients, friends and guests. We are so grateful to Rinkie & Ron, Pat, Ron & Jackie, Bob & Sandy, Rose & Norm & Kathy, Lorraine, Cal, Melaini, Linda and Julie of the Lions Club and Claire, Rebecca, Jen, Fran & Diane for pitching in. Our clients are a generous bunch offering both items to auction and bidding on items to raise funds for the Lions Club.

It makes me happy to serve you as your real estate professional and to encourage friendships through our semi-annual parties. Watch some snippets of the action on video above.
