Heating Things Up: 5th Annual FRED Chili Showdown + Food Drive

5th Annual Fred Real Estate Group Chili Showdown

Which FRED broker has Bad Ass Beans?

Who’ll be voted Hotter Than Fred?

Which will be hailed, “Freakin’ Fredtastic”?

Join us for our 5th Annual FRED Chili Showdown + Food Drive to cast your vote!


Our annual FRED Team Chili Showdown is a community event in which our team cooks, and our clients, business partners, and friends get to eat and judge their best culinary efforts.  This is this an awesome opportunity to contribute to a local charity organization, and up for grabs are one-of-a-kind trophies, and of course, major bragging rights.



We want to cook for you!  Only our team can enter a chili, but anyone can sample and judge.  We invite you to swing by the FRED Office on Thursday, October 25th between 4:30-6:00 to taste our broker’s best attempts at the most Fredtastic chili.  Come hungry & enjoy chili, sweet treats, beer, ping pong, and a typically emotional prize ceremony.


Here’s last year’s event in a nutshell:
