Simple But Memorable Holiday Keep In-Touch Ideas

Services for Real Estate Pros with

Naturally the holiday season brings about happiness and joy, however, it can also create some angst as with growing to-do lists and schedules that fill up faster than the toys in Santa’s workshop.  In efforts to help you stay connected we’ve outlined a few holiday ideas that will help you be memorable without taking up too much of your time.


1. Let People Know About Upcoming Events:  Get the word out about the great options that can be enjoyed from holiday bazars, tree lightings, cookie decorating classes, Christmas plays or musicals, holiday lights…just to name a few.  These types of events can be found all over, but taking the time to focus on the ones that are really relevant to your local community can make a memorable impression on your clients and sphere.  Send out the info on a postcard, in an email, as well as on your social media pages…just make sure to include the event description, dates/times and links where applicable.


2. Help Out Local Charities: Help make a difference in your local community by promoting upcoming food, clothing or toy drives.  Another alternative is to organize a group (solicit your friends, family, clients and sphere) to help volunteer for an afternoon at a local charity.


3. Share the Wealth Through Co-Op: Over the years some of the most meaningful postcards we’ve seen are ones where an agent has teamed up with another local business for a great deal.  Try reaching out to the businesses from the first bullet (above) to see what kind of deal you could offer to your clients and sphere.  They’ll get free marketing and you’ll get something unique and memorable to send out such as 50% off at a local Christmas Tree or perhaps a free ticket to an upcoming musical.


4. Spruce Up Your Open House: The holiday season typically conjures up warm and inviting feelings so make sure your open houses reflect that. We’ve all heard of baking cookies at an open house, but try to focus on holiday themed cookies such as gingerbread cookies that give off a nice holiday aroma.  Pick-up some fresh apple cider and heat it up on the stove to pair with the cookies.  Lastly, throw on some soothing holiday music in the background.


5. Forget the Labels and Post Office Lines:  Don’t forget we have hundreds of different holiday postcard options that will look beautiful on the mantel of friends, family, and clients too.  The best part is you can customize online and then we’ll do the printing, addressing and mailing for you.  Our same day turnaround is a nice bonus for those of us who might procrastinate a bit.
