As the holidays open in earnest this Thanksgiving and Hanukkah week, Brian and Laurel Smith of Yorba Linda know that their holidays and those of their neighbors will be bright, literally, because their name was picked today out of nearly 1,000 entries into the Extreme Holiday Makeover by First Team Real Estate.

"I can't explain how excited we are. This will be a great start to a wonderful holiday season," said Laurel Smith. "We saw the contest and thought, 'You never win if you don't enter', and sure enough we did."

As a result of having their name picked, the Smiths will have a professional decorating and lighting team descend on their home Sunday to install $5,000 worth of lights and decorations. First Team Real Estate will also be providing a power allowance of $500 as well as making sure all of the decorations are removed in January.

"This was a fun contest from the start and we can't wait to decorate the Smiths house this Sunday and share holiday photos all season long on our Facebook page," said Rick Brotherton, Vice-President, Marketing, First Team Real Estate. "To all those who entered the contest on our Facebook page we say thank you and stay tuned for more, and to all of you wondering what that tremendous glow in the night sky is this December, it's the Smith's house!"
