Proudly Supporting Plunket


Now in its 4th year, the Goodwin Realty Group's Christmas Lights competition was borne from frustration that our local residents were 'tripping-off' to other parts of Auckland to view light displays, when we could rather inspire our community to create some 'magic' in their own neighbourhood. What better time, than the Festive Season, to connect with your neighbours and bring joy and wonder to our children and to the child within us all!

How the Christmas Lights Competition Works

Register to enter and we will personally deliver further instructions and a Christmas Lights poster with a Voting Code to display outside your home. You will also receive a 'Goody Bag' with tips, vouchers & treats to help you get started with your Christmas decorating & to have some family fun over the Festive Season.

Then simply decorate your home with lights and festive décor and be in to win some fabulous prizes!

We will arrange to take photographs of all the homes that are entered in the competition and the pictures will be added to the Gallery section of the website for all to admire!

To add to the fun, we are asking the community to vote to determine the winners! Voting begins on Monday the 6th December, with maps being delivered, to share the location of all the homes that are entered, from Friday 3rd December. Maps will also available from any one of the Goodwin Realty Group's 7 offices. All you have to do is rug-up with the kids and, take them 'on tour' of the Christmas lights in your area.

Voting closes on 20th December and all participants are invited to attend a Prize Giving function with refreshments on 21st December at 5pm at the Goodwin Realty office in Mt Albert – 910 New North Road.
