Over the past few weeks, we have seen the landscape of our little state transformed into a stunning array of color. Rhode Island is simply beautiful in the fall. We debuted our seasonal photo contest in the fall of 2008 and the fall contest is always our best.

As usual, the top five photos were uploaded to our Facebook page for judging. We had a record number of votes this year. It was also our closest contest to date. In fact, only three votes separated the first and second place winner. A BIG ‘thank you’ to all of our friends who helped to select the winning photograph!

Without further ado, I am excited to announce that Mary Ann Lisi, Sales Associate in our Narragansett office, has submitted this year’s winning photograph! Mary Ann snapped an amazing shot of the Newport Bridge photographed from Jamestown. The soft reflection of the bridge in the marsh is pretty amazing. Congratulations Mary Ann.

Here are the top eight photographs that have been added to our home page slide show:

Living in New England is truly a unique experience. The region offers many perks and having the opportunity to enjoy all four seasons is certainly one of them. With ice skating, sledding and other winter sports, there is plenty of fun to be had for people of all ages during this time of year. Our Winter 2013 Photo Contest captures this essence.

We had a plethora of photographs submitted this winter. I’d like to take an opportunity to thank our Facebook friends for helping us select this year’s winning photograph.

Without further ado, I am excited to announce that Rich Epstein, Corporate Trainer and Broker Associate in our Providence office, has submitted this year’s winning photograph! This marks Rich’s second consecutive win, having won the Fall 2012 Photo Contest. Rich snapped a fantastic shot of a New England Snowstorm featuring an old snow covered truck. The photo received 44 “Likes” and 3 comments.

Here are the top 5 photographs that have been added to the home page slide show:

Getting your property in front of serious buyers and generating lots of interest in it is the way to sell your home. A good agent will work to get as many people to view your home as possible. And since most buyers start their search on the internet these days, standing out in the crowd will help develop traffic. Engaging video is one of those tools which can help create the buzz. That’s where the marketing and technology departments enter.

For the past two years, Residential Properties Ltd. has been making property videos and posting them online. We like the media primarily because of the flexibility and creative aspects. Combining the talent from the two departments to film, write, record, and edit, we’ve found that we can work off of each other to fine tune the product into something that will attract, inform, and make viewers want to visit the property.

Our videos have been viewed over 22,000 times on the ResProp YouTube channel, and we’d like to think this is not a fluke. We are thrilled to have some very talented individuals who make it their business to deliver an interesting and effective product to our clients. Working on other projects besides our own movies helps bring creativity to them. For instance, IT Director Tom Flanagan was recently on an award-winning 48 Hour Film Project team. Their video, entitled “The Lip Dub” had to be written, shot, edited, and scored in only a weekend. The team rose to the occasion, adjusting their “creative process” to succeed in this high pressure environment. They were awarded Best Cast Ensemble, Best Choreography, and Viewers Choice.
