When I have a relationship with a client that lasts longer or is more meaningful than a personal bond, I will contact a therapist.

My clients are focused on the transaction. After escrow closes, contact is less frequent and less critical. The burden is on me to follow up and make sure the remember me for their next real estate need.

At every juncture I'm trying to ratchet down their needs with every showing. If a personal relationship develops along the way I know I'm in trouble and not working in their best interest. This applies to both Sellers and Buyers!

I get what you're saying - the daily (sometimes multiple times daily) communication immediately halts! 

The beauty of keeping up with your past clients begins on moving day! They really do appreciate that you haven't just dropped them when you walk away from the Closing table with check in-hand!

I talk to some more than others throughout the process. There are some that take so much time, and I do learn more about that it is a little odd to not talk with them once the loan closes. I don't see my clients in person though so they are not people that I consider to be or have become friends.

That is great that you have clients who have bonded closely with you. They will probably be your clients for life. I've had some clients like this. We've remained friends after the transaction closed & we've gotten together after the closing just as you would with a good friend. I'm ever grateful for clients with whom I've shared this bond!

That would not be the word I would use - I'm actually happy to move on Dan Tabit!  For me, it never feels like a break-up, once the transaction is over, because I consider it all business.  Very few clients are in the true friends category for me, and those folks I keep in touch with, as we've gotten to know and like each other.  A very high percentage of clients are strictly business and that is where they remain.

I feel that way after settlement.  I actually joke at settlement that I won't know what to do with myself now andask if they know anyone buying or selling.  Try to get them to replace themselves.

I wouldn't go as far as a "breakup", but there is a bit of a void when the closing actually happens. Multiple daily communications stop...
Keeping in touch after is a good (and necessary) thing.
