Closing gifts to cooperating AGENTS!

Betty Lou Vogel's bread

 

I've received thank you cards from other agents and sometimes from title companies at the conclusion of a successful transaction, and I've received emails from lenders. One local agent, however, outshines everyone when she hand-delivers a freshly baked loaf of bread, bread she bakes herself and that often is still warm when she brings it. She brought two loafs to my office this week in honor of recent closings we shared.

I am on a low carb (low just about everything) diet following my recent heart surgery, but you can bet that I sat down and enjoyed a buttered, warm slice of Betty Lou Vogel's bread, nevertheless. Betty's generosity reminded me that I really need to be far more thankful for the hard-working agents on the other side of every deal. She's a classy lady, and she has been a local real estate leader for many successful years in the local market.

Thank you, Betty Lou, for all that you do! I'll let the photo speak for itself (I had to take the photo quickly before we started slicing)!

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

______________________________________________________

http://www.homepath.com/  for Fannie Mae properties

http://www.homesteps.com/  for Freddie Mac properties

http://www.hudhomestore.com/ for HUD properties (foreclosures that were FHA financed)

If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?


NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.

Well, isn't that just the nicest thing? I've never heard of anyone doing here. Maybe, I'll start a new tradition.

Now that is classy! 

   It's also interesting to note that since she bakes the bread herself, and brings it to the Office, there shouldn't be any violation of "paying" an Agent that is not under your Brokerage.

Very Cool! I wouldn't be able to eat just one slice of warm, homemade bread. She must really love to bake if she does this often.  I've never recieved gifts from lenders, title reps or other agents, however, my clients tend to give ME gifts at closing. The last one was a really nice bottle of Tequila!  How did they know?!  Hee Hee!
