I want to thank everyone who participated in our “Prettiest Yard Contest.”  We have some beautiful yards in the area. I appreciate those of you who shared those pictures with me. We even had a beautiful picture from a California yard! It was great that you took time to take a picture and send it in to me so I could put it on my Facebook page.

Thanks to all who took time to hit that “like” button and vote for your favorite.

I love how people take pride in their homes. As a realtor, I know how much people appreciate a home that is not only comfortable but also aesthetically pleasing.

Thank you to Sandra DeWitt of Mid Missouri Bank for sponsoring the $100 prize.

This was so much fun. Follow my Facebook page Mary Plunkett Sells Homes to see if we run another contest in the future.
