“If the seller lived in the home for more than 20 years, I get a custom watercolor painting of the property. That home holds so many memories for the seller, and a painting is a great keepsake of a cherished location. There are lots of artists on Etsy who make custom pieces at different price points.”
–Christine Dupont-Patz, GRI, RE/MAX at Cherry Creek Inc., Denver
“My favorite closing gift is flowers. It may seem cliché, but flowers are always a thoughtful gesture. Selecting flowers based on your clients’ preferences, favorite colors or even their new home’s aesthetics shows you’ve paid attention to them and put thought and effort into the gift. Plus, flowers add decoration for your client’s new home.”
–Aaron Walker, Coldwell Banker Shook, Lafayette, Ind.
“For me, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all gift. For example, one of my buyers loves to attend financial conferences. So when we closed on his house, his gift was a pair of tickets to a conference he had mentioned he wanted to attend. It has to be personal to create a memorable experience.”
–Jennifer Diliz, Coldwell Banker Realty, Miami
