Realtor Client Gift Ideas
If good real estate is all about location, location, location, then a good realtor is all about people, people, people. Wouldn't you agree? The realtors I have worked with in the past (both on a personal and professional level) are all about people: networking, building relationships, making referrals, the list goes on.
As a realtor, one of the most important aspects of your job is building strong relationships with your clients. And what better way to show your appreciation for their business and trust than by giving them a thoughtful closing gift?
If you're a realtor, you've probably already thought about why closing gifts are an essential part of your business. But in case you haven't, here are 5 reasons why you should be giving closing gifts to your clients, which seems like a good place to start because you'd better believe we've got some great client gift ideas for you!
Show appreciation: A closing gift is a tangible way for you as a realtor to express gratitude and appreciation for your client's business and trust during a really big step in their life. A well-chosen gift can leave a lasting impression and help solidify the relationship between realtor and client.
Create a positive impression: A thoughtful and personalized closing gift can set a positive tone for the entire home-buying or selling process. It shows that you care about your clients and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure their satisfaction.
Encourage referrals: A happy client is more likely to refer their friends and family to the realtor who helped them find their dream home or sell their property. A closing gift can help create a positive association with their realtor's name (you!) and encourage future business opportunities (especially if you give them a branded gift like a candle! hint hint)
Strengthen relationships: A closing gift can be a small but meaningful way for you as a realtor to maintain a positive relationship with your clients even after the transaction is complete. This can lead to repeat business in the future and the potential for a long-term partnership for when they need you to buy or sell down the road.
Differentiate from competitors: In a competitive real estate market, a closing gift can set you apart from your competition, especially if the gift is one that addresses their pain points or needs in a new home. A thoughtful closing gift shows that you are willing to invest in your clients and prioritize their needs, which can lead to more business and a better reputation.
Closing Gifts Real Estate
When it comes to selecting a closing gift, there are a lot of options to choose from. Some popular choices include a nice bottle of wine for toasting their new home or a custom-made sign for their new home. While these are great options, we of course want to highlight a hand-poured soy candle that will make their new home smell amazing.
Here are 3 reasons why candles are an easy and awesome closing gift for your clients:
- Candles are versatile and have wide appeal.
Candles come in a variety of scents and styles, making them a versatile and customizable gift. You can choose a scent that you think your client will love, a candle that matches the aesthetic of their new home, or a scent that matches the season...something fresh & clean for spring or something warm & cozy for winter. One of our favorite candles for new homeowners is our Welcome Home! Candle, available in two different sizes to fit your budget and their space.
- Candles create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
Moving into a new home can be stressful, but lighting a candle can instantly create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Plus, a calming scent like Lavender or Day at the Spa will help your clients kick back and relax. They are sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness of a gift that can help them settle into their new space.
- Candles will keep you top of mind & be a reminder of your relationship.
Every time your clients light the candle or even just see it in their living room or office, they will be reminded of the positive experience they had working with you. This can help keep your relationship strong and encourage your clients to refer their friends and family to you in the future.
Opt for a custom branded candle featuring your name & logo to further remind your clients of you. Plus, a branded candle is like free advertising in their new home for when they host friends and family!
Overall, a closing gift is an essential part of the real estate business that can have a significant impact on a realtor's success and reputation. By choosing a thoughtful and personalized gift like a custom logo candle, you can show your clients that you truly value their business and are committed to building a strong relationship.
