How To Say Thank You to Your Realtor After the Sale Closes
You don’t have to get your realtor a gift after you buy a house. In fact, real estate agents rarely get these. It’s not because people don’t appreciate their effort. They’re just too busy moving, and they usually don’t have time to think about gifts. So, all the chances are that your agent will be pleasantly surprised if you send them one. Now, there are many gift choices for realtors that say thank you in a great way. Therefore, if you want to be a nice and thoughtful client, here are some suggestions you might want to consider.
Gourmet gift baskets
Realtors are often busy people. Because of this, they may lack time to sit down and have consistent meals. If there’s a thing that they’ll forget about during a busy day, it will be food. So, it’s a great idea to help them with this and send them one of our gourmet gift baskets.
Gourmet basically means “good tasting food.” And that is exactly what we provide in our gourmet gift baskets. They could include an assortment of cookies, sausage, cheese, crackers, snack mixes, cheese straws, fruit (if locally delivered) and more.
If you order from us, we can create a custom gift basket that will put a smile on the face of your agent. This is one of the best ways to say thank you.
We also work with a company in Texas that creates wonderful meat and cheese trays and boxes for us.
These are a universal gift for almost any occasion. So, if you don’t know what your present should be, or you can’t be bothered to think about it, make sure to consider gift cards.
They are available in almost any value, and they can be issued from either online or a physical store. So, department stores, bookstores, gas stations, local restaurants, and so on. Everything works.
In our opinion, restaurants are the best choice you can make here. Not every agent is lucky enough to have someone cook for them, and as we already mentioned, they’re busy people. Therefore, giving them a chance to visit a nice restaurant free of charge is a very thoughtful gift.
Tea or wine
If you know that your agent enjoys wine tasting and fine wine, a bottle of it is an excellent example of gifts for realtors. If you want to ensure that you’re making a good choice, know that you can’t go wrong with Ports, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, California Cabarnet, or Italian Pinot Grigio. Although we don’t have a liquor license and can’t put alcohol in the baskets that we make, we have a partner company in California that produces and ships beautiful gift baskets with wine for us. Or if you want a gift basket to thank a Realtor here in Flagstaff, you can always pick up a bottle and present it to your agent along with a gourmet basket.
On the other hand, if they don’t drink alcohol, coffee or tea is a great alternative. Pick a unique tea gift basket to remind them that it’s okay to take a break. Write a nice note to go with it, and you’re all set.
Flowers always make great gifts. And the effect is even stronger when the delivery is not expected. The best thing of all is that you have an abundance of choices.
Boxed roses are an all-time favorite, but you don’t have to stop there. Seasonal floral bouquets arranged in beautiful vases can also look incredible. And if you want to take it a step further, think about exotic plants. Miniature palm trees or bonsai can make a great present.
Another great thing about gifting flowers is that most can be delivered on the same day they are ordered. So, even if you forgot about it, you can still make a nice gesture.
Custom personalized gifts
There’s a whole variety of items suitable for realtor closing gifts that you can have engraved or monogrammed. A personalized gift shows them that you put some thought into it and that you are thankful.
Here, you can go for anything from candle sets and pens to desktop clocks and coffee mugs. The possibilities are pretty much endless. It’s not a bad idea to include a thank you message as well; this will personalize your present even more if that’s what you want to achieve.
Digital picture frames
No, we’re not talking about ordinary picture frames. Digital ones have an onboard memory that can hold dozens of digital photographs, and they are displayed in a slideshow. Because of this, it can be a great addition to a real estate agent’s office. It can slideshow all the satisfied customers that the agent helped.
If you can, get one that runs on batteries. This way, there are no ugly wires attached if they hang them on a wall. It’s one of the gifts for realtors that is easy to get, but that can mean a lot to them.
Referrals and reviews
It’s a well-known fact that there are no one-hit wonders among real estate agents. You don’t see them quickly going out of business, thanks to the referrals and reviews they get from satisfied clients. You can say that these are the backbone of their business. Without referrals, they don’t have much choice but to scratch in the dirt for clients. Referrals and reviews also help clients find the right person when buying remotely, even if they are unfamiliar with the area.
So, if you are pleased with their services, make sure to share your experience with the world. Reviews are the gold standard when it comes to gifts for many reasons. They’re the gifts that keep on giving, and for that, they’ll be very appreciated.
Visit your agent’s Google business page, Facebook, Zillow, or Yelp and tell their potential clients how good they are. Of course, if you have friends or family members looking for a new home, make sure to refer your agent. You’ll help both your agent and your friend or family member this way.
