RealtyQuest Celebrates the Year of the Dragon
Happy Year of the Dragon! RealtyQuest agent Lina Mak-Chin arranged for RealtyQuest to participate in the Celebration of the Chinese New Year hosted by Fairfield County's Organization of Chinese Americans. The banquet was held at the Stamford Marriott Hotel and featured lively dances by students of the Chinese Language School followed by a wonderful performance by Lin Li of the Beijing Opera. While feasting on the delicious banquet catered by Jasmine, we learned about the Year of the Dragon, and we are certainly hoping that in 2012, the Dragon will light a fire in the real estate market! According to a recent International Business Times article, "The Dragon is larger than life and its appearance means that big things are to come. The Year of the Dragon is a flowing river, not a stagnant lake, so things happen quickly earlier in the year. The Dragon marks progression, perseverance and auspiciousness. It may also bring about unpredictable events."As real estate agents, we are certainly familiar with the concept of perseverance! Of all 12 signs in the zodiac, the dragon is thought to be the most auspicious and powerful of them all – and typically associated with prosperty. The real estate market has certainly shown signs of life thus far in 2012, and our office has been busy with phones jingling and agents coming and going. RealtyQuest has listed 6 homes for sale and 2 rentals already this month, and we are very optimistic for 2012, the Year of the Dragon!
