Spring is a time of renewal when the animals return, the flowers bloom, and the weather begins to warm. Here in Rhode Island, spring transforms our frozen landscapes of winter into lush parks, bursting flower gardens, and wonderful seaside areas filled with waterfront shops and restaurants. Taking part in our Spring Photo Contest, our agents did a terrific job capturing still frames of this special time of year in our very special state.

We’d like thank everyone who participated in this year’s contest, not only the Realtor’s who put the time and effort into submitting their entries, but also all of our friends on Facebook who took the opportunity to submit their votes. Without all of you, the contest would not have been possible.

And now for the results. After a strong Father’s Day weekend of voting, it is my pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2019 RPL Spring Photo Contest is RPL Cumberland Sales Associate, Kim Horvath with her shot of the Cliff Walk in Newport. Kim’s photo captured one of our state’s most popular walking trails on a picture perfect spring day. The photo received a total of 65 votes, compiling 24 more votes than the next closest competitor. This was Kim’s second RPL Spring Photo Contest victory, having previously won in 2017. Congratulations to Kim on her winning photo for which she will receive a free video and website package from the RPL Marketing & Technology Department.
