The Best Kind of Pay Check is a Thank you Note!

Remember that a small gesture goes a long way. How many notes of appreciation have you received lately?  It's easy to take a few minutes to show gratitude for someone who has made your day a bit better?

This is what came in the mail today..a beautiful handwritten note...

"You were so patient with us throughout the entire process. Your constant encouragement and positive outlook really helped us maintain faith that we would eventually find the house that was right for us......You really are our "fairy godmother" and really have made our " fairy tale" come true!...''

 

 

                                            Thank you Margaret

It was a pleasure working with Wendy and Aaron...such a wonderful couple and now brand new parents. Here are a few other posts about the journey of finding their perfect home.                                                                          

 

We did a bit of door knocking to find the perfect home.

Congratulations Margaret - such a nice gesture - you should be feeling extra special - they didn't bother to send an email - they actually took the time to hand-write a note! That's really nice.  Great job.

Margaret - You're right, the best kind of paycheck is a Thank You note. It's funny how, through all the millions of ways we have to communicate, the Thank You note is always one of the most cherished. I think it stops us in our tracks and reminds us of the good we've done, and inspires us to do more! It also shows good, old-fashioned manners.

Thanks for sharing this great experience. Suggesting!

Rube, We did plenty of emailing while searching for the right house. When the note came, I called to thank them and ask permission to use it in a blog. They were thrilled.

Debbe, We all love these notes. We all love to be appreciated. I tell the newer agents..."Once the thank you notes start coming in...success follows. Continue to work for thank you's."

Sally, You understand and knowing you.. you get plenty of these "pay checks'

Rich, You are so right.

That's awesome to get a hand-written note like that. I tend to get emails, but haven't gotten a hand-written thank you in a very long time...

Donna, These notes are very special. Very few people take the time to write such a personal and meaningful message. It is most gratifying!

Margaret, I love that they included the part about you being the fairy godmother and making their fairy tale come true...too cool.  They are a lovely couple and the handwritten note means so much.  I too got a note from this special family!  We make one heck of a team!!

Margaret,  Isn't it wonderful how they appreciate how much you've done for them.  There is nothing like a handwritten note and watching their faces light up with joy at their home.  Congratulations on another job well done!
