“What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s a question eternally asked of small children everywhere, and while you can expect the usual responses like “fireman,” “ballerina” or “baseball player,” have you ever thought a child might reply with “real estate agent?”
Well, after spending time playing and pretending in The Real Estate Office, an exciting exhibit that’s back at the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum after three very successful runs in 2010, 2011 and 2012 your child may just add “Realtor” to their list.
The Real Estate Office, presented by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, gives children the opportunity to role-play as the real estate agent or the homebuyer and help find the perfect “home sweet home.” The bustling real estate office features pretend tools of the trade, including “online” home listings, a neighborhood wall map with coordinating properties for sale, sell sheets and a working telephone and changeable answering machine to help little agents keep up with the fast-paced workplace.
The exhibit complements the museum’s Home Town exhibit area, which provides an immersive environment for children to learn and play while exploring different “real world” businesses and how these businesses – and the people who work in them – make a community work.
The Real Estate Office will be open from January 4th to March 26th of this year.
