Keller Williams at the Louisville KY Derby Bed Races
The three local Keller Williams Real Estate offices combined forces for the annual Kentucky Derby Bed Race on May 2nd. This was the first time that Keller Williams has competed even though the race has been conducted here in Louisville, KY since 1990. This is the first time that the races were held at the KFC Yum! Center.
These races are termed a “zany affair” and they certainly fit the description. We started in the “Dormitory” under the Second Street Bridge. At that point, we were able to see our competition up close and enjoy the camaraderie. The competitiveness here is good natured to say the least. The Keller Williams bed had its safety inspection about 4:30. I wonder if this was analogous to a “Home Inspection in Louisville”? The Keller Williams Home bed passed the inspection with no repairs needed.
The weather was tough with rain and temps in the mid-50s. At 5:00 we started the procession through the Yum! Center garage and staged just outside the court. At 6:15, we made one pass around the race course as the crowd admired our handiwork and the announcer described our bed. Our Keller Williams bed had a foam house complete with a red roof.
The theme this year was about Super Heroes and the SuperFest. The Keller Williams team wore red t-shirts emblazoned with “SUPER REALTORS” and a KW in the center where an “S” would be for Superman. We all wore capes as well. (For all of those not in the know, Red and Black are Keller Williams colors.)
We had a great first lap being the first to pass through the “cross”, but things did not go as well in the second lap. Unfortunately, we did get first place in the contest, but we had a lot of fun. We were the only Louisville Real Estate firm in attendance and invite the other REALTORS for next year’s event. We are looking forward to next year and WINNING!
The Hollinden Team were pleased to be a part of this community event taking lots of pictures and letting the community know more about Keller Williams Real Estate Offices.
