Chili Cook-Off 2015

What is there to say?  …You had to be there to truly experience it. This year’s Chili Cook-Off was the most successful to date. With record attendance at over 365, this great cause supports the collection and distribution of stuffed toys for children in need at Christmas. This year, the silent auction and raffles raised over $4,000 at the cook off, we collected 867 new stuffed animals (from money raised) plus 213 stuffed animals were brought to the event. Last year we helped distribute over 7,000 stuffed animals. For the upcoming year we are aiming to collect 10,000 stuffed animals for the children of San Antonio.

True Colors Blood Drive

The Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® Stone Oak office has been the site for a quarterly blood donation event. The coordinator for this event is our own Denise Barnhill. On top of being an accomplished Real Estate Associate with more than 12 designations and numerous accolades such as Eagle of the Year for 2013, Denise has offered to be the voice for donating blood through South Texas Blood & Tissue Center. Even Count Dracula made a special appearance at our office Dracula - Meetingmeeting this morning trying to collect several pints of blood for the CBDHR’s Blood Drive in exchange for a wonderful T-shirt and some snacks.

Our goal was 11 pints and we collected 14 pints!! We exceeded our goal and are proud to continue supporting this wonderful cause! If you could not make it out to today’s event please visit your local South Texas Blood & Tissue Center or stay tuned for our next blood donation date.

Staff MemberLocal blood donors can impact the blood supply worldwide by contributing their ‘Donating for Life’ points to the ‘Global Blood Fund‘ and its ‘Open Arms Program.’

“Our donors are saving lives every day in South Texas and beyond, and the Open Arms Program allows them to help save lives around the world,” said Elizabeth Waltman, STBTC chief operating officer. “Many donors have accumulated thousands of points which could be converted into significant funds to support Global Blood Fund instead of purchasing donor recognition items such as T-shirts.”  – See more by clicking here.

Below are some photos from today’s blood donation. It looks scary to those of you who might be afraid of needles but the staff on-board was very kind and attentive. As professionals they offered some great stories about their adventures in the blood donation bus and even got a round of laughter.

By working together to stay ahead of real estate trends, we empower all our staff and Sales Associates to succeed. Although continual compliments and suggestions are received we recently added a new feature to view these on each Sales Associates web page.

Through attention to the needs of our clients and their feedback we work consistently to compile testimonials highlighting Sales Associate achievements.  More than just lifting each other up, we work towards helping folks in the community attain their goal of finding the way home. Purchasing a home is the single most important purchase most families will make in their lifetime and we never forget that.

To help bring first-hand words from those who’ve worked with our Sales Associates to all our readers we are doing a special spotlight in this article. Below are just a handful of our wonderful Sales Associates that have received positive feedback – now visible right on their profile page.

April Frazee:611263

May 23, 2015 – G. Isnardi – April Frazee provided excellent customer service. She was always very prompt in answering our many phone calls, emails, and questions. She showed sincere concern in helping us find a home to fit our needs. Her service and patience exemplified true professionalism, which I would be happy to recommend to anyone! 

 

Andy Smith:614804

April 27, 2015 – S. Dagg – Everything was great! No improvements required! Perfect experience! From the first meeting to after the sale! Andy really went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. He always answered his phone even during inconvenient hours! Great advice and never pushy.

March 10, 2015 – D. Serviss – Met Mark at an open house. Mark Stillings was an EXCELLENT realtor! Very professional and kept in great contact. Smoothest transaction I have ever had!  

Daniel Castillo:

622835April 27, 2015 – A. Puente – Daniel is a great Realtor and I would definitely recommend him to our friends and family. He made sure we saw properties that we were really interested in.

Both the sale of my home and the new purchase went quickly and smoothly. Dea really knows what she’s doing and I highly recommend her. She knew the neighborhood I was selling in and she understood my needs for the new home and didn’t waste my time showing me listings that weren’t right. I always felt it was about me, not about the sale. An added benefit – I’ve made a new friend. If you need a real estate agent, Dea’s the best!

ABOUT KERRY:

Kerry has been in the real estate services business in the San Antonio real estate markets for many successful years and will be here for many more. This longevity and confidence comes from her real estate services to a great many buyers and sellers. Their recommendations to others that result in repeat and referral business that keeps her productive and successful.

As a full service San Antonio real estate professional, she works with buyers, sellers and investors in real estate transactions spanning all of the price ranges and property types. Here’s what she has to say about how she can help you with any home transaction:

Residential Single Family – My residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and I do it with professionalism and a total dedication to my clients. This property type is the majority of my market transactions, but by far not the only one in which I have expertise.

Condominiums – While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and I am an expert in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.

Multi–family – Investors are great clients for me. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to me.

Vacant Land – Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land. I’m can help with this.

New Boerne Location

01_Front ExteriorNow that the big move is over, we visited with Amy Thibodeaux, the Vice President of Residential Sales for the Boerne office, and the entire team at a sales meeting at their new location on River Road.

“I want CBDHR to make a positive footprint here in Boerne. . . We want to be here in many capacities, Community Service, as well as Real Estate.”

Rachelle Lozano, the Director of Marketing, was on-site with a member of her team to talk about the benefits of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS Powerhouse Marketing. In addition, Lozano welcomed feedback from the Sales Associates about working in Boerne and some of the challenges they faced in the world of real estate.

11402997_918863918175216_9144197488158877731_nTaking a tour of the beautiful new office, we were able to snap a few photos highlighting the comforts of their new home. Having a sense of comfort and inviting clients to enjoy a beautiful new office with us is just part of the reason so much effort is put into the decor. D’Ann Harper herself custom designed this building and selected the adornments within. The result is a place our team members are proud to call home.

Away from the construction and in a wonderful location off Main and just a short drive down River Road, the office is close by some well-known thoroughfare. This location is easy to navigate to and very welcoming. The Dodging Duck and Little Gretel are both wonderful local restaurants where some of the Sales Associates visit with friends or offer lunch meetings with clients.

IMG_2366One of the Boerne Sales Associates, Lisa Stanley, loves to help people reach their dreams. Her real estate business is about building relationships during and after the transaction. This is aligned with the belief at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® that we’re family and finding that right home is the single most important purchase one can make in their adult lifetime. Stanley does not see herself as a salesperson, but someone who loves to help people reach their dreams.
