send closing gifts to the office

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives

One of the best referral generators I've heard of is simply a delicious fruit basket.  

A realtor would send a fruit basket to his client after the close of a successful close of escrow.

Unlike candy, which tends to get hoarded by the recipient, fruit has a built-in expiration date, so people keep it on display to share.

He sends this fruit basket to his client's place of employment, which makes them feel special. When co-workers ask where it came from, the client simply says, "My realtor gave it to me." This opens the door to many subsequent referrals

This is a great idea. I generally send thank you cards (with business cards inside) after a successful closing.

I never thought about candy being hoarded but you are right! Great tip!

I have used fruit baskets in the past and I have received great response from my clients.

Hmm, that sounds yummy...I'll remember that but wouldn't it be better to hand deliver one if you had time so you would have contact witht the client.
