Since the launch of APR’s Sundae Funday, the #APRSundae partner trucks have visited dozens of open houses handing out free treats and bringing renewed energy to neighborhoods around the Bay Area. We look forward to continuing to bring innovative open house programs in 2016. Thank you for a great summer – and especially to our partners Swifty Sweets and Izzy A’s Frozen Custard for making this possible.

Check out some testimonials from agents who hosted #APRSundae open houses:

“It was a real buzz in the neighborhood. There were a few agents who were showing their clients during the open house – and it really impressed them and the buyers. It was a big hit!” – Joanne Fraser, APR Los Altos

“The whole event was perfection. We had a steady flow of buyers and neighbors – and it was such a great chance for potential buyers to interact with the residents of our great neighborhood… pet a few dogs, ask pertinent questions, etc.” – Sharry Chimienti, APR Walnut Creek

“The buyers will always have the wonderful memory of buying their first home with the APR ice cream sundae promotion. All of the neighbors shared the excitement of the open house and the ice cream sundae event pulled the whole neighborhood together.” – Brenda Miller, APR Saratoga

“We had a great turnout and our visitors were very impressed. Several commented on what a nice treat it was. My only regret is that they couldn’t stay longer.” – Jo Ann Luisi, APR Pleasanton / Livermore Valley
