Now any real estate agent can throw an open house with a sign in sheet and property set ups, but an open house hosted by Rich Kids Real Estate is not your mother’s open house. For those of you who are Ab Fab junkies like myself, to quote Patsy Stone, “It’s not a rave…it’s a happening”. That’s how we feel out our open houses. It’s not just a Sunday open, but a major event that needs to be celebrated (the introduction of your home to the public). It doesn’t matter if it’s the first or 10th open house, there are always going to be fresh faces new to the property and every time needs to feel like the first time (how do we wish that this mantra was applicable to other certain facets of life)!
Throughout the country, the media was constantly bombarding us with warning messages about Car-mageddon last weekend. There was going to be pandemonium in the streets, gridlock, flood, fire, famine, and the message was clear: STAY HOME. Well, that was what everyone did and it was lovely! I made it from Beverly Hills to Los Feliz in 13 minutes on a Friday night at 8pm (normally would take me about 40 minutes). The next day I hopped on the dreaded 405 and made it to the OC is about 25 minutes (1 hr +). It was awesome!!!
Getting back to the open house, I thought it would be fun to have a refuge if the actual Car-mageddon did happen so I held a pool side all day open house from 11-5pm. There was sun, libations from A-Z, a beautiful pool, snacks, and a great crowd. People loved it, got to really experience the home as it was meant to without rush or sales pressure, and in true Rich Kids fashion it was a deviation from the norm.
I am no photographer, but I had to take a shot of the Car-mageddon spread and then I added a “high art” shot of me kneeling at the edge of the canyon to catch the water spilling into infinity from a reverse angle. I risked life and limb for this shot, so I do hope you appreciate it!
We look forward to creating a unique experience for your property…I can see it now…Rich Kid’s Presents Mex and Margaritas El Nino Style Coming to a Rainy Season Near You (for those of you thinking of listing in the winter).
