Realtor Open House
On the 15th of October, I had the pleasure of playing instrumental solo guitar music for a realtor open house on Redington Beach. I’ve played for several realtor open house events in the past and I’ve enjoyed setting a relaxed and distinctive mood through my musical performance.
The house being shown by realtor Steve Redman had a special historical significance in the area. It was a house built by John Redington back in the 1930’s. It was the first house in the area to have air conditioning. We wouldn’t think of building a house in Florida without air conditioning in the current times.
For this event, I set up in the main living area in the home. The room was spacious and had tall ceilings and beautiful hardwood flooring. There was also a great view of the ocean, a fabulous chandelier and a magnificent fireplace.
It was easy to get comfortable and I decided the way to add to the relaxed mood was by playing my favorite light, classical pieces. I pulled from my repertoire pieces by Bach, Handel and Scarlatti. The visitors were happy to have a seat and enjoy the ocean view while listening to the music.
In addition to my music performance at the realtor open house, there was an assortment of appetizers and drinks.
Having a live musician perform at a special event like this can have a significant impact on the ambience of the setting. It adds distinction to the event and helps visitors remember the home through their recollection of the music and the fact that a live musician was performing.
As the evening progressed, more and more people filled the room, so I decided to add some pop tunes to the event. I played Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” and The Beatles “Norwegian Wood”,
It was a great evening. What a blessing to be part of this realtor open house. I look forward to the possibility of doing this again at other locations.
