There’s something about getting a gift that makes it memorable, especially when it’s unexpected. Think back a couple years to a time when someone gave you a gift. Now you might have liked it– or not– but you didn’t forget who gave it to you and why, right? These days, besides birthdays and Christmas, there aren’t too many times when adults receive gifts. People generally love receiving gifts, however, and when they’re meaningful, all the better…
Imagine you were buying a house and your realtor gave you a portrait of your new place that you could proudly hang on the wall. Wouldn’t that be a unique and special gift you’d cherish for years to come? House Portraits by Deb does house portraits and many realtors love how Deb is able to capture the look of a home’s exterior so beautifully using watercolors.
So, with that said, if you’re a realtor you should consider giving real estate closing gifts– and, in particular, consider giving a “house portrait by Deb.” By giving your home buyer a memorable gift, you’re likely to increase real estate referrals dramatically, and make your client feel good. It’s a win-win situation. They’ll have something to show people and talk about, and they’ll say who they got it from and why. It’ll help them remember you, even years from now.
Meanwhile, realtors can also keep in mind others involved in the closing process– not just buyers. Others who would appreciate gifts include the closing attorney, the house cleaner(s), and the home improvement/repair workers. Basically, giving gifts helps make a lasting impression. People always remember how well (or how badly) they were treated, and if you’re the type of person who sends handwritten thank you notes along with gifts such as beautifully painted portraits, you’ll definitely stand out from the crowd.
