Usually a warm thank you note is what I send. But sometimes I suggest a meet up for coffee or lunch. It is such a pleasure when I work with a great agent on the other side of a deal!
Debbie Reynolds, C21 P...
I send a handwritten note at the end of the transaction and a small Apple giftcard.
We used to tell them, and often go out for a drink together. We were good friends with many of the agents, as we practiced in the same style and manner. A
We send handwritten notes to all agents as well as clients after a transaction. We alsos end handwritten notes periodically to people we have gratitude for. It is the most welcome response to relationship management because it shows thoughtfulness in the note and that we took the time to compose and write our thanks.
If this is a REALTOR I want to do business with in the future, I isolate one aspect of the transaction where exceptional character was exhibited.
My acknowledgment affirms it is professionals like you, that I want to do business with and trust the same is true regarding me.
I then follow this, at the earliest opportunity, with a before market notification that could add value to what they bring to their clients.
I then wait for reciprocity or action on my offer. This agent world may already be to crowded. I won't hold by breath for something that may never happen.
Debbie... at the end of each transaction, I send a personal, handwritten note thanking the other agent for his/her hard work and telling them how great it is to work with a true professional and that I look forward to doing it again. Amazing to me that as many of these as I send each year, if I get two notes back in any format in a year, it's a lot.
Hi Debbie. I once had an agent bring me flowers at the closing, in sympathy for the hard time I'd had dealing with my Difficult Clients. That gesture meant a lot to me! If the agent has been good to work with, I usually send a personal note, and occasionally I include a gift card for Starbucks or Panera.
Yes, I call them and personally say it was a pleasure dealing with them. I have also sent a Thank You to them at their office, but never know if they ever receive it...
Tell them directly in person or on phone. Sometimes write an e-mail or a letter to their broker or manager
Debbie - You bring up a great point. In the past, I have just sent emails thanking them for working to make the transaction as seamless as possible. I think I could step that up a little and actually send a personal card.
By the way, I have never received anything from other agents I have worked with, and typically do not even receive an email saying 'Thank You'.
Sometimes I just tell them, but I've also sent a thank you card.
I always let a great agent know how much I value their role in making things move along smoothly for our clients. Some of my best relationships with agents came when we met through a mutual client and worked together seamlessly, I always make sure I let them know about it & let others know as well.
I think that verbal and email communication is enough. They are getting paid from the deal as well, and the ease of the transaction is the best way to tell another agent that you appreciate their efforts.
I often send them a gift at closing and put them on my card list...
I need to send a gift card, but so far I just say nice things to them.
First of all, I tell him/her about it! Sometimes, a simple Thank you is great and often forgotten. I tell Thank You as well in my final group email to a team( escrow, loan rep, title, agents, assistants, etc.) featuring everyone who really stepped up. I can send a thank you note, a gift, or simple : some flowers too~ that is optional.
Text or email.
Praful sends personal 'Thank You' notes to everyone involved in the transaction.
I usually say it to them in person or over the phone.
As a lender I send a hand written thank you note to the seller agent , my buyer agent and the seller and the buyer after each settlement taht I also attend. This is huge at our bank and it is always well recieved from everyone.
