2019: The Year of Human Connection
Oakwyn knows that human connection is the driving force of innovation. This year, we put people first. From our Women of Oakwyn event to our Pride Celebration, we dedicated ourselves to connecting with our communities.
Connection, relationships, and community inspired Oakwyn throughout 2019
Our holiday party was no exception to this theme. Our offices grew this year and so did our team. With staff all over the lower mainland, we wanted to make sure that we created a space that was welcoming and inclusive– one which connected individual agents with their larger Oakwyn communities.
The evening’s food was prepared by the fantastic Fairmont catering team and included a roast beef station, oyster bar, crab legs, dim sum, and charcuterie. Yum!
Our agents had a great time connecting over the food tables while sipping on fresh cocktails. And don’t even get us started on the dessert table…
Collaboration was a defining factor of 2019
Teamwork drove Oakwyn in all areas of success this year, which is why we were thrilled to be able to collaborate with some of our favourite local companies to make this holiday party a night to remember.
This year’s event was held at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, at their Roof event space. From the elevator, guests were met with beautiful, live piano music performed by Jackson Wu. Agents, dressed their best and in full masquerade-magic, connected with Oakwyn teams from near and far, which made for a beautiful night of connective synergy.
As our agency grows, so do our agents. We believe that all Oakwynites are our family and we are blessed to learn from our people year after year. Human connection was our 2019 theme and our entire company embraced and emulated this value throughout the year.
Thanks to AntiSocial Solutions for capturing these wonderful shots of our agents connecting. We are proud to have created partnerships that last, year after year.
A beautiful photo booth, run by our friends at AntiSocial Solutions, and furnished by Moe’s Home Furniture, connected agents, friends, and families through playful photo-ops. The red drapery brought sophistication and elegance to the room, and Moe’s Deliziante Club Chair fit our theme perfectly. Other beautiful furnishings from Moe’s included their Liberty Dining Chairs and a gorgeous Gold Log Stool. Thanks, Moe’s!
Congratulations to our two #OakwynMaskOff holiday winners, Edison Chua and Richard Tamplin, for bringing their creative style to this year’s event.
Looking forward, we are grateful for the community that we have built together. 2020 will be a year of innovation, care, and experience.
2020 is all about building out core Oakwyn values such as putting people first, innovating service, creating communities, leading by example, pursuing growth, embracing change, and always being true real estate nerds.
