“Fans” of Duncan Real Estate!

 

Martha and JahnaJoey, Chris, Jerry and MarthaLL and Martha

 

Bayfest on Pine Ave was a blast last Saturday!  The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce staff and volunteers were out on Pine Ave setting up before the sun came up – glad I didn’t have to be out there that early!   We made our vacation rental guest aware of the event earlier in the week and also gave them a Bayfest 2017 booklet when the arrived!  We love to take great care of our vacation rental guest and keep them informed of all the fun events going on on Anna Maria Island!

 

A group of us from Duncan Real Estate met at the office at 10:30, made mimosas and headed out to the crowd to hand out Duncan Real Estate fans!  When we first started, there was an excellent breeze.  It was so pleasant to walk Pine Ave and see all of the fancy vehicles in the car show, over 80 vendors set up with cool items, food vendors that made the street smell so yummy and the big band stage at the very end of Pine Ave.   I was nervous as folks didn’t really need a fan to keep them cool because the weather was so nice.  BUT, about 30 minutes later, the breeze died down and the heat started to set in.  Good thing for us as the fans became a huge hit!  We handed out 500 fans  in about an hour and a half.  Note to self for next years order – order at least 1,000 as the Bayfest goes until 9:00 PM and I am sure many more folks would have loved to been a “fan” of Duncan Real Estate in the middle of the afternoon!

 

A big thank you to the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce!  They always do such a fantastic job on this event and it runs so smoothly.  We truly live in paradise with not only the best gulf beaches and sunsets but so many fun things to do on Anna Maria!  Team Duncan is looking forward to Bayfest 2018!

Sunny regards,

Ginger

Upcoming event on Bridge Street!

Anna Maria Island is such a great place to vacation or live!   It seems like every week there is something fun going on for visitors and residents to enjoy.  I am super excited about the Budweiser Clydesdales coming to Bridge Street on Bradenton Beach this Saturday, October 14, 2017!   The Clydesdales will be on Bridge Street from 5PM – 7PM on Saturday.  They are going to make their way from Cortez Beach to Bridge Street, down to the AMOB Pier roundabout and back to Cortez Beach.  This is a treat for Anna Maria Island as I do not know of a time when the Clydesdales were here.  My plan is to enjoy a fun island cocktail at one of our local spots on Bridge Street before the horses get there and then making a dinner reservation at Blue Marlin after the event!

My question to you is why not make a long weekend out of this event.  October is a great time to visit Anna Maria Island as it is a slower time, vacation rentals are at the lowest rates, and the weather is starting to be just perfect!  Duncan Real Estate is offering 15% off the majority of our vacation rentals during your stay in the month of October, so take advantage of this additional Duncan Deal.   We would love for you to enjoy our fabulous island and also the fun event with the Clydesdales – give our office a call to book your awesome vacation rental!

Hope to see you this weekend!

Get away with your girlfriends!

IMG954746 (1)

Last night I had the great pleasure of meeting up with some of my college girlfriends for dinner.  My stomach hurts from laughing so hard over a four hour dinner!  It is crazy how even when you have not seen some of your friends in months/years, it feels like you were back in college again!

After being with them last night, it made me think….  What better way to stay in touch with those special friends then to plan a beach weekend getaway on Anna Maria Island!?  And of course working for Duncan Real Estate, we have over 100 vacation rental properties to meet all different needs!  My college friends and I started planning our weekend last night and have found the perfect 4 bedroom/3 bath rental from Duncan!

Comment and let us know how you stay in touch with some of your favorite friends!
