Day 7:
#FRIDAYFUN
Elfie whizzes down a zip-wire in the Dawsons officeThrilled from his adventure yesterday, today Elfie decides he wants an adrenaline rush. After much thought, he decides the best adventure would be to zip-line through the office without a worry for his safety (he didn’t even put a hard hat on!)
As he moved through the office, he thought maybe this was a little too adventurous for such a little elf, and although he had enjoyed himself, he thought he better take the rest of the day nice and easy from here on in.
Day 8 and counting for Elfie:
ELFIE TAKES A DAWSONS CAR FOR A RIDE AROUND SWANSEA
After a restful Friday afternoon, Elfie decides he needs to experience the sights of the city around him.  Over the past few days, Elfie has noticed a set of vehicles driving past the window, all bearing this same logo “Dawsons”. It was Elfie’s task of the day to find these cars and he decided he was going to borrow one to take it down to see the wonders of the Gower.
(Hopefully not drive it into the sea – he doesn’t have his full licence as yet)!
Day 9 of Elfie’s adventures:
#SELFIESUNDAY
Selfie with Elfie Competition at Dawsons Property in Swansea
Whilst out on his adventures yesterday, Elfie counted the marketing boards and he was pleased to see his happy little face beaming down from 50 boards as he drove by! Elfie knew he simply had to stop and take a “SELFIE WITH ELFIE!” to share with his friends. Posting it on all his social media feeds and hoping his elf friends back home would like and share!
We are now on day 10 with Elfie:
Elfie finds a pile of glitter and cannot resist diving in“What a busy weekend,” Elfie thought to himself as he made a nice hot chocolate. It was time for Elfie to start to think about sending Christmas cards…  He looked at his supplies and realised he was missing a vital aspect… glitter!
Now he is sure he saw the Dawsons team member they all seem to call “Chris” carrying some glitter around earlier (Chris rolls everything in glitter!).  Hearing Chris leave his office momentarily Elfie sneaks down the stairs and climbs up onto the desk to find a huge tub of glitter!  Elfie grabs this with some haste and not realising the lid was loose knocks the pot over. Looking at the huge pile of glitter in front of him, Elfie squeals with delight and dives into it producing a lovely “glitter” angel.

Elfie is ready to really go back to his mischievous roots, for his next stunt he wanted to try something he has seen in comic strips and in the movies, he’s sure he’s seen a big copy box in this building! When he finally tracks down the photocopier, he knows this is going to be a fun evening and proceeds to take plenty of copies of himself!

He makes his way down to the sales floor and has a good look around… Elfie wonders if this Estate Agency really wants pictures of property in the window…..

Dawsons Take a selfe with elfie competition to win a Christmas HamperThe Adventures of the Dawsons Elfie

As the sun rose on Saturday 1st December 2018, Elfie woke full of festive spirit. He stretched and took in the last sight of this room, today was his moving day and he was heading to a bigger and brighter place, you see. He was off to see the lights and wonder of a big city (not too big a city mind, as we must remember he is a very little elf!).

Santa had promised young Elfie that if he was a good, helpful elf all year he would be able to spend this Christmas in Swansea! All Elfie had ever seen of the sea was on the back of toy boxes as he walked through the great toy warehouse, so Elfie was careful all year to make sure he behaved well and worked hard because he knew that Santa would always keep his promises to his elves. And Elfie so wanted to see the city!

Although for the past eleven months Elfie had been good, he is actually one of the cheekiest elves you are ever likely to meet! He is the kind of elf that would point and laugh if you slipped on a banana peel. You would often find him playing practical jokes on his brothers and sisters before he was old enough to work with Santa… He found it hilarious to put a big hairy plastic spider in his sister’s soup one day, Elfette hasn’t eaten soup since! Though this may sound mean Elfie never meant to cause any harm, he wouldn’t want to upset anyone, being an elf he has a kind heart but he just loves a little bit of mischief. He would never like to be called an evil elf though, he isn’t that bad.  Also, SANTA wouldn’t allow an evil elf in his workshops and warehouses and certainly never allow them to venture to Swansea!

#NEWMONTHNEWBEGINNINGS

Day One of Elfie's adventures in SwanseaDay 1: With a spring in his step Elfie jumped out of bed and started to pack the last few bits and bobs ready for the big move. He tucked his sleeping bag into the car, slid into the drivers seat excitedly opening the directions to his new home. He looked at the address and it was as Santa promised….SWANSEA! Elfie put the radio on and sang his heart out to ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’, ‘Jingle Bells’ and many other songs all the way to his new home. As Elfie pulled up outside his new house, he felt really lucky, Santa had fixed him up with a beautifully decorated home with a sea view for his stay in Swansea. Elfie looked up at the house and knew all his hard work had been worth it. Elfie decided he was going to like it here and he set about unpacking his belongings, knowing all to well that this month was going to be the most exciting of Elfie’s life and he couldn’t wait to start!

#SIMPLE SUNDAY

Day Two of Elfie's adventures in SwanseaDay 2 of Elfie’s Adventures:

Elfie spent all of his first full day in his new home unpacking and looking out of the window at the wonderful view. As the sun went down Elfie shuffled off to bed, he did have one box left to unpack, but he knew this would wait until the morning. A little grin appeared across his face as he glanced at the box before curling up and getting some well earned sleep!

 Day 3 of Elfie’s adventures:  
Opening the final box was going to be fun, Elfie was so excited to get to the contents that he nearly fell over his own feet on his way to it, chuckling to himself, it would have been funny if anyone had fallen over their feet. Elfie gently opened the box and peeked inside, he reached in turning the item over in hands with a little glint in his eyes. Elfie quickly put the item back into the box and put the box back into his car, Elfie set off to do something that some may consider naughty but Elfie just wanted to announce to Swansea that he was here. Elfie had decided that he was going to go and find some Estate Agents “boards” like the one that had been outside his new home, and he was going to leave a little happy picture of himself on a few of these as everyone will surely want to come and see the new Elf in town!
Elfie snuck from board to board putting his little picture on his favourites giggling to himself as he went….

Day 4:

Since running around all of Swansea yesterday, Elfie has decided to have a quiet day today, whilst looking through his move-in pack he came across a Dawson’s “Reward Card”… This little card can give Elfie discounts at local participating businesses. Elfie decides today is going to be a relaxing day and he heads to “The Optimist” cocktail bar in The Uplands, where he uses his Reward Card on a couple of drinks and some snacks. Watching the people walk by outside Elfie is content… . But what is he planning?

#WHERESELFIEWEDNESDAY5

Day 5 of Elfie’s adventures:

Sunshine wakes Elfie up this morning, but Elfie isn’t in his bed, or even in his house! Perhaps he had one too many in “The Optimist Bar” last night…

He’s woken up surrounded by forest creatures and really wants to know how he got here and also how a panda got to Swansea? Answers on a postcard, please!

#TRICKSTERTHURSDAY
6Day 6:

The walk home yesterday and the making of a few new furry friends (especially Rusty the naughty red panda) has inspired Elfie to return to his cheeky roots.

As he passes through the office where his new home is located, Elfie tripped over a roll of Christmas wrapping paper and an idea popped into his head:  He was going to find the most important looking doors and Christmas wrap them (the ones with the locks must be the important ones, right?). Elfie giggled to himself as he taped up the doors, gave a quick high-five to Rusty and a look back at his work… Elfie headed to bed.

Back to School with Dawsons Property

Back to School

My goodness gracious, where did that holiday go?

Hopefully, everyone has had an amazing time, whether staying at home in Swansea, visiting some of our amazing beaches and attending all of the events that have been going-on or heading abroad to foreign shores.

Now, however, is the time to get prepared for the schools going back for the Autumn term and, in order to assist, we have made a checklist for you to download and tick off as you complete each of the tasks.

BACK TO SCHOOL CHECKLIST

Just remember that once the kids are back at school, you do not have to worry about how to entertain them every day.

Maybe think about putting your property on the market, and moving somewhere larger, or even closer to their school, to make your life easier come the Christmas holidays!  (Oops sorry to mention the ‘C’ word)!

Good luck with it all, remember we are always here if you need us!

Dawsons represented at Swans DSA Christmas party

Dawsons delighted to be part of Swans players’ surprise for DSA members at Christmas Party

Dawsons were proud to be represented when the Disabled Supporters’ Association (DSA) were treated to special guest appearances from Tammy Abraham, Swans Ladies star Emma Beynon and DSA ambassador Lee Trundle at their annual Christmas party.

The guests took part in games, a Q&A session and sang Christmas carols before meeting DSA members at a party held in the Liberty Stadium.

“Dawsons has sponsored the DSA members throughout 2017 and we were delighted to be part of the surprise event,” said Leon Atolagbe, Dawsons Residential Lettings Office Manager.

Launched in 2013, the DSA is continually growing. With 75 members at present, the DSA aims to offer inclusivity to Swans supporters, whilst bringing families and friends together.

The DSA intends to improve facilities and policies that affect the disabled supporters, putting the views of the association to the club and other bodies.

The DSA is looking to build on its foundations and develop an even stronger relationship with Swansea City. All Swansea City disabled supporters are welcome to join, and this includes their family, friends and PAs.

Dawsons staff get in the festive spirit on Christmas Jumper Day

Dawsons staff have got into the festive spirit and come to work in their best Christmas jumper to raise much needed funds for the charity Save the Children.

Tim Kostromin, Dawsons Partner, Dawsons Partner, said: ”As a company we carry out many fundraising events throughout the year for local charities, and our staff have taken part in the annual national Christmas jumper day for some years now.

“With many offices also having their Secret Santa exchange on the same day, so the day for us all really is an enjoyable one.  We are lucky to have so many staff within the company willing to get involved in raising the much needed funds for all the charities we help.

“With Christmas Day just around the corner we know that while there are many children excited for the presents they will find under the tree there are many who will go without, so raising money for Save the Children at this time of year is crucial across the nation.”
