To celebrate the purchase of my first condo four years ago, my agent gave me a $50 gift certificate to a local tea shop and a plant for my closing gift.
I appreciated the gifts because my agent listened to me and my interests and purchased accordingly (she knew how much I love tea). It was very thoughtful and left me feeling happy and positive about her.
I water the plant and see it every day and it reminds me of my agent. Was this a random or strategic, smart move to keep herself "top of mind"?
Do you always give a closing gift and do you think it is important to choose something to help make you memorable?
