The summertime is nearly here, making it a great time to break out the sunscreen and ice-cold beverages and plan a summer client party. Client parties are a fun way to connect with your clients, show them that you appreciate their referrals and market your real estate business. And, with summer the ideal time for outdoor entertaining, you can’t go wrong with these fun ideas:
Who doesn’t love a barbecue? Even the thought of food on the grill is enough to make most people salivate in anticipation of the first bite. Keep it simple with burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and grilled veggies, as well as a pasta salad or potato salad, chips, fruit and cold drinks. Rent tables or host it at a local park that has picnic tables.
A family fun day
Invite the families in your database to a day out with the kids at a local park. Set up areas for people to play bocce ball, horse shoes, Frisbee or another fun game. Serve barbecue or pre-made sandwiches, as well as cold drinks and other snacks.
An afternoon on the water
If large parties aren’t your thing, invite a few of your best clients and their significant others out for an afternoon on the water. Charter a boat or make a reservation to enjoy lunch or brunch on a cruise. This is a great way for introverts to connect with their clients, or to show appreciation for your A+ clients.
A day at the beach
Invite your clients and their families to enjoy a day at the beach. Supply finger foods, some cold beverages and the beach toys. Challenge your guests to a sand castle contest and offer a prize to the best three sculptures.
Climb a mountain.
Get outside with your outdoorsy clients, and plan a short day hike at a nearby mountain or hill. Since everyone’s level of fitness may differ, find a short (1-2 mile) trail with easy hills and nice views. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at the top.
