George in NJ raises an important subject for this time of the year:
It's that time of year when we get to be thankful for our blessings. In years past, I've sent gift baskets to my bigger clients. This year with so many clients, I'm sending a package of marketing goodies and a heartfelt thank you. I've done this for the past few years and my clients are quite appreciative of the sentiment. If things had worked out the way I planned, I was going to host a client appreciation day where I would offer my clients free family holiday portraits (one pose per family please!)... plus hot chocolate and donuts!
I was wondering how other people say "thank you for a great year" to their clients.
Great topic! Thanks for bringing this up!
During the 10 years I worked as a listing agent with my wife, we went to many classes for real estate agents on building your business and treating your customers right so that you get referrals from them and one thing that I recall is the importance of being personal. Like personal handwritten notes, and stopping by the office and personally thanking them face-to-face for a great year. In our increasingly impersonal digital world, personal thank-you's are more and more important.
