While Southern California enjoyed a mild winter, Windermere Real Estate agents kept the home fires even warmer with their community support and involvement. From local fundraisers in the Palm Springs and San Diego/Oceanside areas to stylish functions in New York City, here’s a few snapshots of what the Windermere Real Estate Agents have been doing to wrap up a warm Winter.
