Congrats to Sarah Welch of Wilkins & Co in Chatham — she’s the winner of our first Real Show Expo prize: a flying monkey tote bag! What’d she do? She registered early for the Real Show.

Mike the model

There are more prizes coming, so look for announcements here and in your e-mail. But the best prize of all is the experience you’ll get and the connections you’ll make by attending the Real Show — Virginia’s biggest Realtor convention, October 4-5 in Virginia Beach. Don’t miss it!
