I consider it one of my primary responsibilities, as a commercial real estate agent for Boston’s Metro South area, to stay in-the-loop about what is happening in many of the South Shore’s communities. The reason for this is simple: I help local businesses in the area find office space for a living. When your target market is hyper-local, like mine, you want to help your clients find ways to stay involved with the community. If you think about it, there really is no better way to network than by getting involved with your neighbors and the events that they care about most.
Throughout my years of experience with helping businesses in Boston’s Metro South find the ideal office space, I’ve always encouraged them to get involved in their community. It’s one of the best ways you can publicize yourself, particularly if your business is new to the area. This Spring, the Town of Braintree has a couple charity events that you can get involved in that are both fun and perfect opportunities to get you some more exposure.
The first is happening this Sunday on April 15th. The Braintree Working Dog Foundation is holding a fundraiser at the ever-popular Dave & Busters. Proceeds will help support the Braintree Police K-9 Unit. This event is expected to draw hundreds of supporters, so if you get your business involved, it could be a great opportunity for you to get more exposure and network with your community. It’s also a family-friendly charity event that will involve a bit more fun. You can start the day off at 9:00am with a buffet-style breakfast and play games until 11:00am. Not only will you get exclusive access to the facility, but tickets are also relatively affordable. For only $15 per individual and $35 per family, you can enjoy two hours of all-access game play and breakfast. It’s hard to think of a better way to kick off a Sunday!
You can get your business involved in another charitable cause at the Braintree Town Hall on Saturday, May 5th. The 2nd annual carwash for the Braintree Special Olympics will help you kill two birds with one stone: you can get your car washed AND get your business some more exposure at an event that is likely to draw a crowd. The Special Olympic Summer Games are to be held on the weekend of June 15th at Harvard Stadium, and the money from this car wash will go toward training the Braintree Special Olympic athletes competing this year. Let’s face it: a car wash can never hurt, and neither will giving back to a great cause. Once again, getting your business involved or your employees to participate in the event can only help build positive PR.
As a commercial real estate agent who frequently works with businesses located in Boston’s Metro South, I think that it’s important to encourage community involvement. It’s one way to help your business grow and show your dedication to your area. When I heard of these two events coming up, I just knew that I had to publicize them.
If you have any questions about events coming up in the Boston Metro South area, or you need help locating the right office space, don’t hesitate to contact me! I’d be glad to help. I hope to hear from you soon.
