Pumpkin Passout 40th annaversary

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Mackintosh REALTORS 82894



For over 40 years the agents and staff from Mackintosh REALTORS have been dressing up and going to the Rock Creek School to pass out pumpkins to the children.  It is always a happy time to see the smiling faces of special needs children at Halloween. This year was extra special after not being able to visit the last two years due to the pandemic and we were able to take a tour of their beautiful new campus. 
41 years ago this month the Mackintosh family purchased WMS Realty and the first Pumpkin Pass out took place in 1982.

Love your commitment to helping schools and in a very non-traditional way. Congratulations on your 41st anniversary. You must have been 15 years old.

Leanne Smith actually in 1980 I was 19. My Grandfather was first licensed in Washington DC in 1910 and we are now 4 generations in the business.

How cool is that.  I wasn't far off with the age though. 😉
