Offering a client a closing gift is not reserved simply to the realm of real estate. Saying thank you is a crucial component of building business referrals. Showing added gratitude or interest to any client when entering a business agreement, finalizing a contract or on birthdays and other holidays, can help to solidify a professional relationship and the possibility of future business.
A thank you card, ecard or email expressing your gratitude is a must. After making a large purchase from a sales professional, a simple ‘thank you’ can put many possible concerns to rest- bestowing the feeling of being cared for.
However, receiving a thank you card is often forgettable. So why not go the extra mile by offering a thoughtful gift? Here are 3 points that can help you choose the perfect gift to express your gratitude:
We all enjoy receiving something that is handcrafted locally. The key is to find a unique product that applies to your area and coordinates with your client’s interests. Maybe a bottle of wine made at a local winery or a gift basket filled with delicacies from a local bakery or chocolatier. Offering wood cutting boards manufactured and engraved locally in the USA by Cutting Boards USA is also a great option for virtually every family and foodie alike.
Personalized gifts display further thought and interest on the part of the giver. Adding a personal touch to a gift increases its value to the beholder and is most likely to be treasured for many years. After the purchase of a home, for example, how perfect a custom monogrammed welcome mat could look on the family’s new front porch. A custom engraved wood sign or cutting board engraved with the family name or new home address, could also be a nice touch.
Let’s be realistic, offering a single Joe who just bought a major fixer-upper he plans to live in while renovating a basket of local cupcakes, probably isn’t what he would rather. He would most likely appreciate the use of a gift card for the local lumber yard or hardware store. Choose a gift you know will appeal to your customer.
