A Thoughtful Thank You

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

It's the holiday season and many are expressing their "Thank You" for those they conducted business with throughout the year. I finished delivering my Poinsettias to clients a week ago and enjoyed delivering to my clients I represented this year.

Upon my return home one day I found a package at my front door from my favorite stager, Brian David. This year he created a unique and authentic ornament that is now hanging on my tree!

I love it and reminds me of how much I enjoy working with him and his crew!

"Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hi Dorie... what a lovely idea. I received a box of Shari's chocolate covered strawberries from a client a few days ago and it was a wonderful surprise. I usually gift my clients who purchased with me during the year with a first Christmas in their home ornament.

Dorie that is the kind of gift that is far more appreciated than its cost.  Great idea.

Oh my gosh, I would love to find out where he had that made, Dorie - it's fabulous! 

One of my clients knew I was a collector of the White House ornaments and that I had started after I was married and was missing THE ONE that was put out in 1996 (the year I was married). My clients sent me this for Christmas!! Ray and I almost cried - it's the ONE year we were missing one. What a thoughtful thing to find and gift us. I know it was no easy feat to locate this one either!
