“Trick or treating” at the end of October tends to be a scary time of year, but instead, Harcourts Advantage in Carlsbad shines a positive light on the “treating” side of Halloween.
Every year, Harcourts Advantage puts on four events for their community, and they give their whole office a chance to mingle with the surrounding public. This Halloween, dressed in festive attire, they hosted a drawing to give away a total of $1,500 to two lucky winners.
“We’ve always had a community-oriented mindset in the office, because we enjoy giving back to those that supports us,” states Harcourts Advantage office owner, Chrissie Carr. “We believe showing client appreciation is a big-time priority here at Harcourts Advantage.”
Something that made this Halloween cash prize so special, was the way funds were raised. The money was all donated straight from the agents in the office themselves. Everyone wanted a share in helping, and that’s exactly what they did.
To enter the drawing, people were asked to “Like” the Harcourts Advantage Facebook page, or visit the office to enter their names. The Carlsbad community was blown away by their generosity. Many entering the drawing found it hard to believe winning the cash prize could be so simple, and asked, “What’s the catch?”
“I enjoyed being able to tell everyone, ‘There is no catch’ and watch their smiles light up,” Carr tells us.
“I’d tell them we just want to meet more people in our community and do something special for our clients.”
Halloween day, the office joined together in their costumes, and pulled two lucky names from the drawing. Winners both received a cash prize, and felt grateful to everyone at Harcourts Advantage.
Carr expresses, “All involved enjoyed the event, but our agents were particularly excited to have a chance to give back to others, especially those who dedicated extra efforts into making it happen.”
Harcourts Regional Director, Rob Forde, adds, “It is great to see Chrissie and her team giving back to the local community. Chrissie lives the Harcourts values and culture.”
Forde expands, “Giving back is part of Harcourts culture, which is why the Harcourts Foundation was initiated in 2008. Globally, it has now raised in excess of $5 million, which has all been given back to local communities."
This unique Halloween celebration gives agents a special opportunity to reach out to their clients. Although, this is not the only community event Harcourts Advantage organizes.
Carr reveals their next event will be this winter, with Santa Clause scheduled to attend. He will be gracing everyone with his presence on December 9th, from 11:00am - 1:00pm, where kids can come get pictures for free, and enjoy cookies and hot cider. On top of the Holiday cheer, this day is meant to gather as many canned goods as possible to be delivered to the homeless shelter in Carlsbad.
Another event they put on in February is their “paper-shredding” day. Two large shredding trucks stop by for a few hours, and everyone is invited to throw in their “shred worthy” items. Community atmosphere never rests at Harcourts Advantage, and this day in particular is one that brings everyone together.
Harcourts Advantage recently celebrated their 1 year location anniversary, on the corner of El Camino Real and Carlsbad Village Drive. Staffed with 25 experienced, full time agents, they are always looking to serve those around them and welcome anyone passing by. Keep an eye out for their next community event and stop by Harcourts Advantage to enjoy the fun!
