Congratulations, you made it! We're in the last stretch of 2023, and from here on out it's a fast slide through the holidays, events, and parties until before you know it, a brand new year is upon us. Although inventory is naturally and historically slower during this season due to hectic hustle and bustle, it has actually been slightly increasing! And if you're concerned about adding one more thing to your to-do list, not to worry— our team is here ready to assist you every step of the way!
As we enter the most wonderful time of the year, families and friends come together and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Thanksgiving is not only a day of delicious food and celebration, but a time for people to socialize and enjoy the intimate comfort and coziness that can only be found at home.
If you’re starting to notice space is getting a little too tight or overcrowded to host all of your desired get-togethers and special occasions, we would be happy to help you find a new dream home that can accommodate all of your family, friends, and guests in one ideal space! There's still time to secure a bright new home for the holidays.
Not only do we want to make sure you have the best season yet, we also want to add a little extra festive cheer for one lucky winner. We’re giving away a 6-foot white flocked, "SweetTreats" themed Christmas tree right after Thanksgiving! Details will be announced on November 29th so be sure to follow along via social media for more updates. Also, be on the lookout for the 2024 RGroup Strategic Planning Calendar—if you are not already on our distribution list, reach out to secure your copy.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back by one hour and enjoy that extra hour of sleep—Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday November 5th, at 2 am! The days may be getting shorter, but there are cozy winter nights ahead!
Here’s to countless, joyous celebrations of love, warmth, and the spirit of giving. Cheers!
