As agents, we're used to giving things to clients. We stay in touch with them. We send cards. We give the occasional gift.
But, as an agent, there is nothing better than to receive a gift from a client. It says we did good. We helped. And, of course, it puts a big old smile on our face!
I have often received gifts from clients after I help them buy or sell their home.
I've been given kisses. I've received cards. I've received gifts. More importantly, I've made friends - I've spent birthdays, anniversaries and holidays with past clients who have become part of my circle of friends. How cool is that?
The other day, I received something quite unexpected: A gift from a client who bought a home with someone else.
They bought a home in an area I do not service. I knew they were looking there, and I was aware they were working with another agent at the same time they were working with me. They were honest and up front from the start - it was the start of a good relationship!
Imagine my surprise when a local wine shop delivered this crate of wines...and they are nice wines, too!
It was their way of thanking me, even though in the end they bought a home with another agent. It made my day.
As agents, we put a lot of ourselves into our business - time, skill, experience, money and energy is spent on each and every of our clients. And, yes, it is worth it.
So, to Adam and Christine, I would like to say thank you. But, I guess I should say, "You're very welcome." I'll work with you again any time. Enjoy your new home!
