This has been one of the hottest summers in recent memory. However, the sunny blue-skied days have only helped our 2012 Summer Photo Contest, as many submissions showcased Rhode Island’s stunning scenery at its best.

We had such an overwhelming response last winter when we first turned the photo contest voting over to our Facebook friends, so we decided to continue this practice on to the spring and summer contests. A HUGE thank you to all of our friends who helped choose the winning photo!

We had so many wonderful photographs submitted this year that we will be adding 6 of them to our home page slide show. The top 4 photos were uploaded to Facebook for judging. Without further ado, this summer’s winning photograph, chosen by our Facebook friends, is “View From Dunmere Cottage—Ocean Road,” taken in Narragansett, Rhode Island.

Judy Chace of our Narragansett office snapped the photo and received 34 “Likes”. Our Facebook friends say it looks like a painting (and I have to agree). Congratulations Judy!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Residential Properties Ltd. has some of the most creative and talented sales associates in the business. Thank you to all who participated  and submitted photos to this years summer photo contest.
