It’s no secret that realtors can gain a lot of quality business from referrals. Getting referrals from clients usually means a job well done - and part of a job well done is leaving your client with a personal touch that says “thank you” for their relationship and business with you.
Home-buying and selling can be a huge, complicated, and intimate process. When your client involves you in selling their home or in helping them choose a new one, it’s personal. So don’t you want to say “thanks” with closing gifts that are just as personal?
Part of choosing a closing gift is understanding what makes the perfect thank you gift. As a realtor, you’d like for them to have something that keeps you top of mind for referrals, but you also need to make sure it’s about them, and not about you . Get your client something they will actually use and appreciate - not just something with your enormous logo plastered on it that will wind up in their attic.
It’s also important to consider how a client might feel if presented with alcohol, certain foods, or other items that could potentially be inappropriate. What if your client doesn’t drink? What if your client has a severe food allergy? Not to mention, consumable gifts are eventually, well, consumed and can no longer act as the referral generator that you hoped for.
And of course, the worst thing you could do would be to give nothing at all. After all the time a client has spent with you, it’s important to have closure in a kind and memorable way. Aside of potential referrals, closing gifts can make your clients feel important - and that’s a great final impression to leave them with.
