Local Realtors® Help Get Letters To Santa

Weichert, Realtors® – Premier Properties places Santa mailbox in front of office

Kids can drop off letters to Santa at a special red mailbox in front of Weichert, Realtors® – Premier Properties in Naples.

NAPLES, Fla. / Nov. 28, 2018 — One little boy might ask for a new video game for his Sony PlayStation system. Another may want a skateboard. You could even find one or two letters asking Santa for a unicorn.
These are just some of the letters that boys and girls might drop into a red mailbox that magically appeared in front of a Naples real estate agency shortly after Thanksgiving.
“I’m betting one of Santa’s helpers put the mailbox there to make it easier for kids to get their letters to him this year,” said Tony Russo, the broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Premier Properties, located at 378 5th Avenue South.
Russo also feels the festive red mailbox has helped get residents of all ages into the Christmas spirit.
“I can’t believe how many people have already stopped by to drop their letters to Santa in the mailbox,” added Russo, who also realized Santa would need a few extra helpers after seeing the community’s overwhelming response to the red mailbox.
That’s when Russo and his staff stepped up to serve as Santa’s helpers, taking on the responsibility of getting those very important letters and Christmas lists off to the North Pole.
“We empty the mailbox each morning and send the letters up to the North Pole,” said the manager of the Naples-based Weichert® affiliate, Billie-Gail Posonski. “We also see people taking pictures next to the mailbox.”
The team at Weichert, Realtors® – Premier Properties is helping get letters to Santa throughout December, which excites Posonski.
“It brightens my day and warms my heart to see so many folks who are already in the Christmas spirit,” added Posonski.
