4 More Handwritten Thank You Notes out the Door Tomorrow
I closed on another property this afternoon, and as I always do I hand-wrote thank you notes to the special people who made this all happen, to let them know how much I appreciated their assistance in getting this property closed in less than 30 days, with a few hurdles along the way.
I strongly believe there’s something special about a handwritten “thank you” in today’s age of email, texting, voice mail and mass produced newsletters and postcards.
So I write notes weekly, for closings as well as for other business reasons to thank people in a variety of ways.
If you are not taking advantage of the unique power of a hand written thank you note, here are some ways you can use them:
· A note to a vendor
· A thank you to an escrow or title person for their assistance
· A note of appreciation to the agent on the other side of the transactional fence, letting them know how much I appreciated their professionalism
· Coupled with a gift, a major thank you to the client for the pleasure of doing business with them and best wishes in their new home
No doubt you can think of many more.
A personal handwritten note shows you care, and that you have taken a few moments to show your appreciation for something someone has done, whether significant or not.
The personal nature takes your thank you to a far higher level, and it WILL be remembered, as you will. It can be personalized stationery, a simple beautiful card or a basic “thank you” card with no embellishments.
It’s not about what the card looks like, or how fancy it is, but that you took time to say thank you in a very personal way.
How many thank you cards did YOU send out this week?
