Thanksgiving-themed pop-by gifts for agents to try

October 5, 2018

This is really the time of year for real estate professionals to start re-engaging with the clients they helped over the past year, and a pop-by gift is a great way to do it.

After all, Thanksgiving is about family, and agents should work hard to make sure their clients - past and present - feel a strong connection as well, according to RISmedia. To that end, some holiday-themed pop-by gifts can be a good place to start.

Practical for Thanksgiving
One thing agents can probably do to help their clients is provide them customized cooking accessories, such as pot holders and even turkey basters. These aren't likely to be thrown out like some other tchotchkes might be, and can really help keep an agent's name in mind throughout the year. These could also be a bit of a conversation starter for people who have just recently moved into new homes.

Along similar lines, dropping off a care package of basic cooking ingredients - like spices for seasoning the turkey, gravy mix and the like - is often a good idea.

Just being considerate
In addition, a handwritten thank you note for becoming part of an agent's ever-growing community of clients, family and friends can really go a long way toward building more of that critical loyalty, according to Inman. The note doesn't have to be long, but if it's written by hand, recipients will know agents meant every word of it.

When agents are able to make themselves a welcome figure even after real estate sales are completed, that's often the key for building business when another shopping season rolls around.
