Newsletter # 7 –July 2017

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your Manitoba summer, a time to spend quality time outdoors with family and friends. Here at Rendez-Vous Estates, we are continuing to move forward with planning, marketing and sales. Our marketing is attracting quite a bit of interest, resulting in receiving phone calls, emails and meeting interested people to share our information on Rendez-Vous Estates.

Our July marketing includes the following:

  • Winnipeg Free Press
  • Senior Scope
  • Wellness News
  • CJOB 30 second ads to air between July 14-25 Monday through Sunday 6am-12am, through all parts of the day
  • Post card mail outs
  • Post card advertising with local merchants. If you know of a merchant location near you where we should have our post card advertising, please discuss with the merchant and let us know. We would be happy to drop off the post cards and holder

Our next public information meeting is as follows:
