Ideas for Annual Events


Build community, build buzz, build joy, build your business ... and have a heck of a lot of fun in the process. For each of these, one closed transaction will typically get you a 2-10x return on your investment & creates an opportunity to communicate, call, text, email, follow-up. Set your budget and get planning! Here are some ideas:

  • dance lessons in your driveway

  • vegetable gardening demonstration

  • annual property tax info session for your sphere and/or neighbors

  • organize annual neighborhood garage sale

  • movie night in your back yard

  • movie night in your neighbor's back yard

  • 3rd of July party (just to be different)

  • 3rd of July decorate kids bikes for 4th parade event

  • pumpkin carving contest

  • annual client appreciation party (spring? fall? folks are way too busy in December)

  • wine tasting

  • taco truck

  • beer truck

  • neighborhood pie contest

  • neighborhood Halloween potluck

  • winter coat drive

  • rent out a bar, or a portion

  • bring live music to your backyard

  • movie theatre rental

  • host a cooking lesson

  • craft day for kids

  • organize yard clean / tree trimming day for the n'hood & you sponsor the haul-away

  • sponsor a paper shred truck once a year

  • sponsor a school event every quarter

  • bring fresh fruit thank you to the school office or nurses station

  • chili cook-off

  • first day of school parents mimosas

  • start a neighborhood book club

  • start a neighborhood monthly front yard happy hour

It's endless. Engaged, fun, community involvement & leadership goes a long way in building & maintaining your real estate business. Each of these events creates an opportunity for you to communicate multiple multiple times with your invitees. Build community, build buzz, build joy, build your business ... and have a heck of a lot of fun in the process.
