Why Choose to Support Small Businesses and Artisans
Closing on a home is a significant milestone and the perfect opportunity for real estate agents to strengthen relationships with buyers and sellers. Commemorating this momentous occasion with a closing gift is a powerful gesture that helps real estate agents leave a lasting impression. With a special closing gift to remember you by, they will be more likely to return for your services in the future and refer you to their friends and family. It’s a genuine and effective way to market your real estate services and stay top-of-mind for your most important clients.
Having worked as their realtor, you should be able to come up with a closing gift that is personal, memorable, and useful. After all, you’ve likely spent months getting to know them, the specific things they are looking for in a home, and what kind of lifestyle they lead. Say the couple buying the home was most excited about finding an open living area where they can throw parties and entertain their family and friends– perhaps a hostess-themed gift with a handcrafted serving board would be appropriate. Use what you know about the buyers or sellers to create a personalized gift set with home goods, plants, gourmet food items, alcoholic beverages, or anything else related to their interests. When in doubt, check out our housewarming gifts for inspiration.
When deciding how much to spend on a closing gift, a general rule of thumb is anywhere between 1-5% of the commission earned. But how much you spend on the closing gift is less important than making sure it’s thoughtful. It truly is the thought that counts with this type of gift. Customizing your closing gifts is one easy way to add that personal touch and make the gift feel more special. With Bestowe, you can either pick from our curated product lists from our ready-to-ship gifts or work with your own dedicated account manager to create a fully custom gift. Either way, you’ll have one-on-one support and a trusted partner to handle all of the details and logistics for you!
Although closing gifts are important, one closing gift on its own isn’t enough to cultivate a long-lasting relationship with your clients. To keep the momentum alive year after year, you can send them another celebratory gift or note of congratulations on the one-year anniversary of their closing date and major anniversaries to follow.
Why Supporting Small Businesses and Artisans is Important
Diversity in Our Artisan Community
How can large companies/corporate support small businesses
Bell Investors came to us for their 30th Anniversary. We absolutely love this sort of project: they asked specifically for local artists to be in the gift boxes. From a locally sourced reclaimed redwood serving board to a candy bar with artwork commissioned from a local artisan, they were overjoyed with the end product.
For employees within the company as a thank you for a completion of group project, we came up with an Office Upgrade gift that would spice up the desks of all those who received. You can actually shop a similar gift in our ready-to-ship gifts called the Office Upgrade.
