Fresh bread for pop-bys

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty SP98365162

Hi All,

Michelle Rios here from Washington DC.  I bought 3 Breadman breadmakers.  Mind you I am no Betty Homemaker but these appliances make it easy.

So when I am ready to do pop-bys I just put three loaves of bread ingredients in the breadmakers - 3 hours later pop three more sets of ingredients in... go deliver the first three when I come back the next three are ready. go deliver - Done!

I go to Michael's Craft store - buy white gift bags with handles and tissue paper in bulk - punch a hole in a business card and tie it with balloon ribbon to the handle to deliver. 

Who doesn't love fresh bread? If you take it to their office everyone around them smells it and ohhh ahhh's all around. More than once on my way out i have overheard..."Your Realtor brings you homemade bread?"    

Happy pop bys!

WOW Michelle this is a great idea! Just curious what kind of bread do you make? If you court your clients like this I bet you never have anyone going elsewhere.....

I usually just do the basic French bread recipe provided by the manufacturer then add whatever I have around the kitchen olives, rosemary, sundried tomatoes, or cheese. 

thank you for posting.  I just joined this group and look forward to see the other ideas too.

Hey Michelle, I bet your clients love this! Who in the world makes things like this and adds a few special ingredients and gives them out....not very many! Please let us know if you have any other ideas.

Michelle - I love this idea! I wish someone would drop off fresh homemade bread to my home! Anytime you are delivering in Southern Maryland stop by and visit me.

Michelle  - special idea !
Do you have a special tag line you put on the back of your business card when you deliver the bread ?

No tag line really. I hope the bread says it all.
