We here at Cityzen Development Group were worried, following last week's Name Our Condo prize collection mystery. But all fears were laid to rest when the first big winner from our Backstage Virtual Broker initiative happily showed up up on Friday to collect her prizes.
Sorina Benhas is the first Virtual Broker to reach the magic target of 75 registrants. As a result, she now has over $1,200 worth of prizes to play around with including a brand new iPad.
Sorina is a veteran of sorts in our recent competition initiatives. She participated in the Name Our Condo contest and signed up as a Virtual Broker when her friend sent her the link.
An accounting/book-keeping student finishing up at York University, Sorina had a few scares along the way to getting 75 registrants.
"I started emailing and messaging people on Facebook to get them to register and just kept harassing them! It became awkward at one stage because an old friend on Facebook messaged me saying 'Um...we don't really talk anymore', but I kept at it!
I think someone must have reported me because they thought I was spamming. I almost got kicked off of Facebook and had to change my passwords!"
"I'm interested in investing and think that condos are a smart investment. Many people in my age group are interested in investing but don't really know how to," said Sorina.
She also commented that this type of contest along with her persistence could peak the interest of her friends and perhaps educate them a little on investing in the condo maket. Sorina plans on doing some shopping with her winnings and is very excited to start using her iPad. She would like to thank all her friends and fans for helping her win!
Congratulations to Sorina on being the first Virtual Broker to win the set of prizes. We have our fingers crossed that one of her referrals buys a unit so she'll receive an extra $2,500 in cash!
