Celebrating Our First Summer Solstice Party!

By in Real Estate Industry with 0 Comments

I’ve always wanted to throw a party on the longest day of the year. This is not like me, since I usually go to bed early, so I wouldn’t ordinarily celebrate a very late sunset. However, it just seemed like a fun idea to celebrate summer and getting halfway through the year.

2020 would have been perfect to do it because the solstice last year was on a Saturday! We all know what happened, though. One thing dealing with the pandemic taught me is to go ahead and throw the party when you can. Seize the moment! So, I did!

We had our first annual Cari McGee Team Summer Solstice Party this past Saturday at Bookwalter Winery in Richland!

We invited all the other female agents that we’d had a real estate sale with in the past 18 months, and a few other select friends and my team members, and threw a party!

I selected Bookwalter as the venue because they have great outside space and it’s shielded from the setting sun. The food they provided was delicious! I also ordered a cake from my favorite cake artist, Beehive House Confectionary, and arranged for an open bar for all our guests.


This whole year, for us in real estate, has been full of rush-rush-rushing — show the house, write the offer, list the house, review offers, go, go, go, win the deal. It’s been exhausting. It was so nice to relax and chat with other agents, just for fun, without any strategy or agenda. We all enjoyed seeing each other as regular women and we chatted about all the things we encounter.

The party wrapped up after 10, and it was wonderful. We’re going to do it again next year, and some of the ladies have marked it in their calendars already!

Here are some photos from this wonderful night! Thanks to all the wonderful women who joined us!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
