Following several days of voting, I am pleased to announce the final results of the 2017 RPL Fall Photo Contest. Before doing so, I would like to thank everyone who made the contest possible, including all of our agents who entered submissions, our wonderful group of finalists, and everyone who took the time to submit their vote and help us with the difficult task of deciding a winner. This year marked the 10th anniversary of our fall contest. We never could’ve have reached this milestone without the help and participation of each of you.
After receiving a large collection of submissions featuring prominent locations throughout Rhode Island, we managed to narrow the contest down to a group of six finalists. Although the finalists each had their own notable qualities, one particular photo separated itself from the rest of the pack, receiving over twice as many votes as any other. I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2017 RPL Fall Photo Contest is “Moffett Mill (circa 1812)” taken by RPL Sales Associate Paula Work. As a recent addition to our Narragansett Office, this was Paula’s first time ever competing in an RPL Photo Contest. She entered several submissions, but her winning photo was quintessential New England, combining the rich history of the region with the essence of the season. As our contest champion, Paula will receive a free website and video package. Congratulations Paula!

Summer in Rhode Island is always a special time of year, attracting flocks of tourists to come and visit our sandy beaches, dine at our seaside restaurants, and cool off with cups of refreshing Del’s Lemonade. The RPL Summer Photo Contest aims to capture the essence of the season through stunning snapshots of some of the state’s most popular destinations.
A well-deserved thank you goes out to all of those who participated in this year’s contest, including everyone who entered a photo, submitted a vote, or shared the contest with their friends and family on social media.
With your help, the contest was a huge success, reaching an audience of over 8,200 people on Facebook while resulting in more than 350 votes. Each of our finalists received over 20 votes, but one particular photo garnered more than 44% of the final tally.
I’m proud to announce that the winning photo for the 2016 RPL Summer Photo Contest is Narragansett Beach Sunset by Narragansett Sales Associate, Dana Zangari. Dana’s photo captured a perfectly-posed seagull surrounded by the breathtaking colors of a Rhode Island summer sunset reflecting off the glossy shore. This photo encapsulates the beauty of the season and earned over 150 votes – more than twice as many as any other finalist. As a result of winning the contest, Dana will receive a free property website and video, while also having her photo displayed on the ResidentialProperties.com home page slideshow. Congratulations Dana!

As you may know, we hold a seasonal photo contest and the Spring Photo Contest is always the most challenging. The Spring weather in New England can be difficult to predict. It can be 70 degrees and sunny one day and a surprise snow shower can suddenly strike the next. However, this year’s Spring has brought some pleasant days and stunning scenery to our little state.
We get more and more submissions to the Photo Contest each season. In fact, we received a record number of submissions for this Spring’s contest. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, at Residential Properties we have some of the most creative and talented sales associates in the business!
I am excited to announce that CC Wall has submitted this season’s winning photograph. CC captured a stunning view of the Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI. CC’s photo captures a natural vanishing point of the grand Victorian hotel deck leading to the ocean off in the distance.
An honorable mention goes to Liz Bodell, sales associate in our Providence office and super talented photographer. Liz submitted a fantastic shot of Richmond Square in Providence.
With so many quality photos submitted this Spring, it was certainly difficult choosing photos to be added to the home page slide show. We have included 5 photographs this season. Thank you to all the participants!
Winning Photo: CC Wall – The Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI
Runner-up: Liz Bodell – Richmond Square in Providence
Holly Applegate – Historic Homes on Benefit Street – The East Side of Providence
Holly Applegate – Roger Williams National Park – Providence, RI
