Southern California's families hurry towards the special days we all recognize as the holidays, the brightest holiday contest to ever brighten a long winter's night received some fun notice from the Riverside Press-Enterprise, the Inland Empire's largest newspaper.

"We are sponsoring the Extreme Holiday Makeover contest to do precisely what the Press-Enterprise described playfully as 'taking Extreme steps to lighten the spirit of consumers," said Rick Brotherton, Vice President of Marketing, First Team Real Estate. "2013 was a banner year in many ways for First Team and a lot of Southern California homeowners and its time to have some fun!"

The Extreme Holiday Makeover will give one lucky Southern California family the professional lighting and outdoor holiday decorating experience usually reserved for entire neighborhoods: $5,000 worth of lights and $500 for the additional electric costs. Runners up will receive American Express gift cards. The entire contest is being held on the First Team Real Estate's Facebook page.

"We have purposely made this contest as easy as possible, so that your holidays are as bright as possible. Just go to our First Team Facebook page, sign up, and if your name is the one we draw on December 1, get ready," explained Rick Brotherton. "From there on out, the winning family will be visible to all, whether traveling by air, flying sleigh, or car!"
