We've done various closing gifts over the years. All the typical stuff and more, gift cards, embroidered afghans, various gift baskets, perhaps a bottle of wine if it fit the clients.
But the closing gift we remember most was given BEFORE closing. A few years ago we had a sweet older couple who were retired and ready to join their kids in Kentucky. With five acres and a large home to take care of, it was time for them to downsize and get next to the grandkids! A familiar story so far :)
They were ready, and they were anxious to make the move. They listened to Liz's staging advice from the start, the pricing....well that took a little longer to be ready for....but we got to be where we needed to be.
Before the winter was over, we got an offer on their property that was acceptable, and proceeded through inspections....and that's when it happened.
The Mrs. had a basket made out of candy canes that held a lot of sentimental value for her, tucked away in the top of the closet, thought to be safe. Somehow during the home inspection, it was knocked down and broken beyond repair. The Mrs. was heartbroken and unfortunately neither the buyer's agent or the inspector had left any communication about the mishap. Considering that we were at a delicate point in the inspection process, we didn't press the point with the responsible parties.
What the Mrs. didn't know? We'd recently watched a show on Food Network about the making of those baskets! We had a pretty good idea that we could find a replacement, and we put the Net to work for us. Sure enough, we found the candy cane basket at Ratliff Candy Company in Bristol, Tennessee and got one ordered.
Within a week we had our basket delivered and took it over to the Mrs. We asked her to open the box and that what was inside was for her. With no idea what was coming next, she opened the box and unwrapped her present. Imagine her surprise! We're not in the habit of making old ladies cry, but that day, we did! She was happy beyond words that she had her candy cane basket again!
So although we didn't give this gift at closing, this was easily the best gift we've ever given!
You just never know when that TV show you're watching just might pay off later!
