The Spring season is always something to look forward to for Rhode Islanders. The last bits of snow finally melt away, the flowers start to bloom, the boats come out of storage, and the PawSox return to McCoy. This year, low temperatures and wet weather put a slight damper on things, but that didn’t stop our agents from capturing some terrific shots for the 2017 RPL Spring Photo Contest.

As always, I would like to thank everyone who made this contest such a success, including all the agents who entered submissions and all of our friends on Facebook who took the time to cast their votes. This year’s Spring Photo Contest was viewed by nearly 6,200 people on Facebook, receiving a total of 327 “Likes.”

The contest was highlighted by a dramatic comeback. Despite falling behind by nearly 20 votes during the early going, our eventual winner stormed back over the weekend to finish with almost 20 more votes than the next closest competitor. As the only entry to receive over 100 votes, I am proud to announce “WaterFire Sunset” taken by Cumberland Sales Associate, Kimberly Horvath as the winner of the 2017 RPL Spring Photo Contest. Kimberly’s photo captured a beautiful sunset reflecting on the water of the Providence River, while showcasing a group of playful ducks in the foreground, as well as the recognizable Providence skyline beyond the river. Also the winner of this year’s RPL Winter Photo Contest, this marks Kimberly’s second consecutive contest win. Congratulations to Kimberly Horvath, who will receive a free property video and website for her winning photo.

At Residential Properties we have some of the most creative and talented sales associates in the business. As I posted numerous times in the past, we hold a seasonal photo contest. It’s a great opportunity for our agents and staff to grab their cameras and unleash some creativity. The winning photographs are added to the slide show on our home page. We debuted the contest in the Fall of 2008 and its popularity has grown larger than ever expected with no signs of slowing down!

We get more and more submissions each season. It’s always a difficult decision choosing the winning photographs and this Fall was no exception. Matter of fact, we have a tie this year!

I am excited to announce that Cheryl Eley, sales manager of our East Greenwich office and Chris Whirlow, executive assistant in corporate, have submitted this year’s winning photographs! Cheryl snapped a terrific shot of a water wheel located in Exeter, Rhode Island. The photograph has a certain Norman Rockwell charm set on a quintessential New England backdrop. Chris captured a stunning view of the State House from Congdon Street located on historic College Hill on the East Side of Providence. Congratulations to Cheryl and Chris.

We also have two runner-ups this year. Honorable mentions go to Heidi Farmer Piccerelli and Liz Bodell, sales associates in our Providence office. Heidi submitted a great shot of a pumpkin patch outside of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Barrington. While, Liz submitted a cool autumn shot set in western Rhode Island.

Thank you to all the participants for submitting photographs, I’m already looking forward to this year’s winter photo contest!
