Should agents accept a monetary "THANK YOU" gift?

By
Real Estate Agent with Gibbs Realty and Auction Company

 

I have a fellow agent that was given a very substanial monetary "Thank You" gift from a recent client after the closing. Should the agent keep the gift or should it be graciously returned and if so how? Whats the most you have been given by a client as an appreciation for a job well done?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.....this has been discussed and now we want your opinions too....

Yes guys right answer. Thre agent is me and I have ran the 1900.00 bonus through my broker. It just feels good to be appreciated that much by a client. She understands the work it takes too make a smooth purchase. Its now also forged a friendship for life. I won just with that task.

I agree with tGary that the gifts like any compensation should go through the Broker and you did mythe right thing! I once was give a subsantila gift certificate to a local high end restaurant and my Broker was nice enough to not ask to go along for Dinner!?!?

It's best to run everything through your broker so as there is no impropriety of bad conduct. Why jeopardize your license?
