Bermuda, anyone?

Afghans and door knockers are nice, but Clarence Oliveira gives closing gifts with more pizzazz.

His customers get one-week vacations anywhere they want to go—within a set dollar amount—after the close of escrow. “After that,” he says, “they’re customers for life.”

Oliveira—who sold 80 homes last year, for a total volume of $12 million—sells “a lot of farms, ranches, and investment properties” in rural Turlock. He started off selling to the local Portuguese community, of which he’s a member, and has since expanded to other groups.

A sports fanatic, Oliveira also personally sponsors two local softball teams, one for kids and one for adults, and has been known to join in on occasion. “I pitch, I play shortstop, any position as long as they let me play.”
