Make Them Memorable

Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

Thank you to all who made 2014 my best year ever in Real Estate! I'm proud of what I accomplished this year in partnership with many of you and your referrals. I love to serve others with my talents, network and exchange referrals, while building valuable relationships like ours. Please let me know how I can bring more value to our relationship as your "Networking" Realtor in 2015.

Holiday cards are a great way to catch up with family, friends and colleagues over the holidays. Here are five tips to help you break through your writer’s block and send heartfelt, authentic notes to your loved ones. Forward this to family and friends to inspire them as well. Merry Christmas! 


1. Start on a positive note. Beginning with "Happy Holidays", "Merry Christmas", etc. will set a bright, positive tone for the card.


2. Remember, it's not a novel. Honestly, maybe only your mother cares about what you did this whole past year. Focus on the reader, not the sender, when sending to clients and friends, unless you can recount a funny or favorite mutual highlight. We all have FaceBook, we know what you've been up all yerar otherwise.


3. Reflect on a happy holiday memory. For family and close feriends, take a stroill down memory lane with that funny or sentimental memory that bonds you to them. It will make them feel good and it jighlights why this relationship is special.


4. Don't make it all about you,​ see #2. While you do want to mention what's going on in your life, remember this is about the recipient and their family. Congratulate them on something they accomplished or comment on a trip they took, remind them that you look forward to seeing them again soon, etc.


5. Bring your messagehome with a great sign off. End your sentiment on a positive note. An example being "Wishing you all the best in the coming year" or "looking forward to seeing you in January" etc. I always include a business card in all client and networking partner cards. But, never in a close friends or relatives. I've made sure they got them throughout the year already :) so I keep personal, personal.


Happy writing & Merry Christmas!
