Kodak/ActiveRain Challenge ~ The Closing Gift ~ Personalized

We wanted to be creative and unique when we gave our clients a closing gift. We wanted to always be remembered in some way or another. We didn't want something that would go in a cabinet and never be seen. We didn't want something that would be used once like a gift certificate.

Twice for clients Frank purchased and installed a garage door opener. These gifts were certainly appreciated but were not always needed with every sale of a home. Thinking caps back on ~ our next client purchased a home in a brand new subdivision. The home came with everything new including a garage door opener. Shoot, what are we going to get.

We wanted something personal because these clients had become our friends. We googled (of course we googled) and asked the Google Gods ~ What would be a good closing gift from a Realtor ~

PERSONALIZED DOORMATS ~

Now why didn't we think of that ~ So we clicked on the site and found REALTORS DISCOUNTS ~ Hello, this site was talking our kind of talk ~ Ding, Ding, Ding Discounts ~ The site was easy to navigate, with different types of doormats ~ indoor, outdoor ~ hmm ~ How nice to have a PERSONALIZED DOORMAT for the Front door entryway. Easy enough decision, fun to personalize, used on a daily basis and how could they ever forget who gave it to them.

The PERFECT CLOSING GIFT for ALL of Our CLIENTS.

Spano Doormat

We continue to personalize each and every doormat as a closing gift for all of our clients.

Hi Guys!  This is a great idea.  I have given artistic ceramic plates with the family name printed on it (Only a couple of times).  In fact, I bought one for us 20 years ago and still have it hanging outside our front door.  I like the idea of making it personal, as you have done.  Best wishes always.
