Real Estate Broker/Owner CA#01772851 HI#RB21268

Yesterday, I had a call from a columnist of the Pine Cone , a very popular FREE weekly newspaper read by absolutely everyone here on the Monterey Peninsula. It includes all the scuttlebutt of mostly Carmel-by-the-Sea happenings. It is advertising driven with glitzy ads from high end boutiques to multi-million dollar real estate. 

As an organizer and board member of the Carmel Art Festival, an annual juried plein air event held May 15-18, in the commercial district of Carmel-by-the-Sea, I have been handling the public relations to promote the event. Because the Pine Cone comes out each Friday, we have an article in this Friday's paper, May 9 to cover the start of the festival to explain why artists are painting all over the Monterey Peninsula, plus an article in the May 16 issue to cover what is happening in town.

At the end of the article he will include the website address for further information which is www.carmelartfestivalcalifornia.com 


My first reaction, "no way, do I really want to field all those phone calls?" But then: 

Isn't this what we are all about? To have your name out there as much as possible? To give the public an opportunity to get to know me even if it is NOT real estate related?


PS. I will link the article(s) here when they come out tomorrow and next Friday

Kathy: It was time to step forward, I do believe.

Noah: I've helped to organize this festival since 2000.

Marshall: That's what I thought. Not everyone wants to go to the website, then look around for a contact name and number. 

Karen: Let's see what happens, right?

Grant: I've been a lot more visible this year anyway, so it made sense. Am also the contact number in the program with 5,000 going out over the weekend.

Stacey: Hopefully, I will make some great contacts and after that, we will see.

Debbie: It's amazing how many new people I get to meet leading up to the festival, never mind the days during. Great for networking, and good for the town. The hotels are full, the restaurants do really well, and shopping besides buying art is an opportunity. And the Carmel-by-the-Sea city fathers are happy with the extra taxes that are being generated.

Hella  I never miss an opportunity to promote this community.  I like being known as the go-to person for information.  If I don't know the answer (and usually I don't) I will be happy to find it out for you or refer you to someone who does.  The dividends for being a town trustee, a Rotarian...among others...makes me a living and I get to enjoy serving others.
