In conjunction with the Niceville Christmas Parade on Dec. 2, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty has given away a play house to a local family.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty entered the Niceville Christmas Parade with a small playhouse on a trailer accompanied by a banner stating, “Providing Homes for All Ages,” along with a small sign that encouraged all viewers of the parade to enter a raffle to win the playhouse. The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty float was such a hit with the crowd that it took home the win for best float at the parade.

A winner for the playhouse raffle was drawn on Dec. 12 and a local Niceville military family, the Deangelises, took home the playhouse to their two young sons.

“That’s what we do,” said Chanie Erb, who headed the project for the realty company. “We find houses for people.”
