NEW JERSEY – New Jersey may be a small state, but we somehow always manage to make a splash.
This is definitely true for Diane Turton, Realtors, who recently discovered one of their promotional signs just completed a five-and-a-half-year trip through international waters to land itself on a beach in France.
On May 31, the company posted a photo of the sign washed up on the French shoreline on Facebook, alongside a map showing the sign’s nautical journey. The signage is a little beat up, but amazingly, still legible.
The post explained that two weeks ago, a resident of France, Hannes Frank contacted the marketing department of Diane Turton, Realtors via email notifying them of the sign’s location on the beaches of Bordeaux.
It was later discovered that the sign is from the Hurricane Sandy era due to its design, which has since been changed.
“The Diane Turton, Realtors Wall Office owned the sign which was lost from one of their waterfront listings during Hurricane Sandy,” it stated.
The company now boasts “global” status with this far-reaching marketing feat.
