C21 Redwood Agents Providing a Soft Place to Land

By Tara L. Christianson on Jun 26, 2019 4:49:41 PM

Everyone wants to have a soft place to land or at least to lay your head, right? This extends to everyone, including those who are in between permanent homes or are homeless. This past month, Century 21 Redwood Realty agents rallied together to collect new pillows to donate to the Northern Virginia SERVE shelter.

Spearheaded by our C21 Redwood Manassas office’s Redwood Gives Back arm and supported by agents across all of our 13 offices, the collection of pillows were happily greeted by SERVE and the people SERVE helps. Northern Virginia Family Service’s SERVE Family Shelter is Northern Virginia’s largest family shelter and, on average (per their website), more than 40% of the shelter’s guests are children. While you wouldn’t think of a soft, clean pillow being a luxury, for some it is.

By Tara L. Christianson on Apr 12, 2019 2:54:40 PM

Are your unread emails sitting at 0 or 30,000? If it's the latter, you’re not alone. Yet, you’ll probably open up emails that seem important or are addressed to you. Your prospective and current clients are the same. Email marketing is still a strong way of communicating with your clients as long as personalized and contains information that’s important to the recipient. On the creation side, though, it can become time-consuming to send or respond to all the email. What do you do? Enter the email template.

An Annual C21 Redwood Realty Tradition

By Tara L. Christianson on Apr 3, 2019 3:25:15 PM

One annual tradition we’ve grown to love and look forward to around here at CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty is our Redwood Rally. As we continue to grow our company, it has become more important than ever to have periodic occasions where we bring all of our offices together to learn from each other and to enjoy each other’s company. While we have our day out at Nationals stadium or our company holiday party every year, the Redwood Rally is a wonderful time of learning, celebration of everyone’s respective accomplishments, and a finale of fun guarantees that everyone who attends truly feels like they’re part of the family.

By Tara L. Christianson on Mar 27, 2019 11:30:00 AM

You pretty much give away your age depending on what you call this sign: #. Is it pound or is it hash? What used to be the pound sign to many is now what most people associate with hashtags. Hashtags were actually first predominantly used on Twitter as a way for people to organize information and find it again quickly.  (In fact, you can blame one man, Chris Messina, for the first real uses of hashtags.)
