For more than 60 of Living Realty’s sales representatives and brokers, the evening of July 8 turned out to be a truly memorable one – as the team piled onto the bus for a special field trip to Niagara wine country.
To kick off 2015’s edition of the “Summer Event” – an annual celebration highlighting the hard work and success of the brokerage’s top-performing agents – the bus’s first stop was at Outlet Collection at Niagara, where agents were let loose among the shops for two hours of bargain-hunting action.
Once everyone had piled back onto the bus, shopping bags in hand, the next stop was the gorgeous Trius Winery at Hillebrand – home to production facilities for the highly popular Trius red, as well as the grapevines Trius uses to create its white and sparkling vintages. Right off the bat, these award-winning agents were treated to a comprehensive tour of the grounds, as well as a look at the vaults and barrel rooms inside the facility.
After a complementary tasting, the guests had an opportunity to browse the on-site wine shop before sitting down to a delicious three-course meal in the Trius Winery Restaurant.
The meal was kicked off with a toast to the agents’ success so far in 2015, and, per Summer Event tradition, a few words of congratulations personally delivered by Broker of Record Stephen Wong.
In an interview following the Summer Event, Wong reflected on the significance of the evening – which is one of the highlights of the brokerage’s event calendar each year.
“While the Summer Event does provide an evening out, and an opportunity to spend some time with friends and colleagues, it is also an opportunity for our most dedicated and successful team members to reflect on their achievements over the past year,” Wong said.
“Trius’s winery and restaurant provided a scenic and memorable venue for this year’s edition of the Summer Event, which continues to be a yearly favourite occasion here at Living Realty.”
