Closing Gifts for Sellers


Yes … there is such a thing.  It’s not just for your buyers.  Realtors should really consider a “thank you” gift for their sellers too.  What a great way to build rapport from both ends … the buyer and the seller.  Well, especially if you had done both deals, right?  Either way, being a realtor which is really an entrepreneur is all about building relationships, rapport and integrity.  Word gets out that you are trustworthy, knowledgeable and sincere you’ll find yourself hiring help to help you answer your calls.  I love this blog by Tom Hopkins on Rapport Building.

Here are some ideas on what to give your seller as a closing gift:

  1. Wine basket with fine cheeses, crackers and a cutting board.  Not just any cutting board, but a cutting board engraved with their name(s) on it.  No “thank you” is necessary on the board.  Just personalized with their names is plenty.
  2. In addition to the basket, you can offer a gift certificate for wine tasting at the winery you are giving.  Nice touch I think.
  3. Treat your sellers to a nice dinner.  Make all the arrangements based on their schedule and all they have to do is show up.  A little bit coordination of your part, but talk bout the memories you will get from that.
