St Patrick's Day ~ Buffini Clubnet ~ Popbys!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fran Rokicki Realty, LLC

Yes, you can imagine the pressure:)  Buff's favorite holiday, the Coach is from Ireland!  He even runs a contest among us Clubnetters, just to see how competitive and resourceful we can be.  This year, I have a goal of 100 popbys for this holiday.  I have given out 20 so far.  I wrap them up and label them at night, place them in a big box, and then place the box in the back of my Toyota 4 Runner for delivery the next day.  While I am out and about, whether doing errands, showing homes or taking a listing, I am sure to keep aware of my clients and contacts that are nearby.  Sometimes they are home, and sometimes the popby is left beside their door.  I follow-up in the early evening with those who were not home, to make sure they found it.  My popby gift this St. Patrick's Day is a small pot of shamrocks.  I wrap it in green, white and purple tissue paper and place it in a gift bag.  I have a tagline, Tis' a good life, thank you for your referrals that continue to help me grow.  I have had good feedback.  I try to do something different every month, every year.  My clients never know what to expect!

The key is not the gift.  It is your thoughtfulness, care and time spent, for and with, your clients and contacts. Show them you care, give them a call, stop by and see them.  Be sure to pass to them, one of your cards and remind them that you value them and their referrals.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Tis' a Good Life!

Fran....I've been looking at the Shamrock plants at my local grocer's lately, thinking they would make perfect St. Patrick's Day gifts for clients.  Your ideas for wrapping and notes are just the finishing touch I needed!  I had an Irish buyer this year, so that will be perfect for him!   It IS a good, FUN life!

Trying to think up ideas for Easter, which is early this year!  I have now started a contest with the shamrock pots, among the receivers.  Let's see who grows the 4 leaf shamrock!  Should be fun to get the responses:) I will have to think up a small reward for those who manage to win!

Great idea Fran. Making pop bys a daily part of your day makes so much more sense and so much easier than planning dedicated times throughout the month. We are out and about anyway so why not do a pop by along the way.

I'm going to head to Lowe's this weekend. I think we could all use some extra good luck no matter what day it is! I think I'll drop them off at everyone of my listings as well as the clients that will be listing with me shortly.
