Has your real estate agent been a total angel throughout the process? Have they made your life easier by taking on each and every burden with a bright and caring smile? If you have had one of the best experiences of your life working with your real estate agent, then you are one of the luckiest people to have ever bought or sold a house in Canada. Make the time to thank them for their incredible work.
Send Them A Small Gift
If your real estate agent has been a total gem throughout the process, make sure to let them know. If you can afford to do so, send them a small but meaningful gift. Maybe you noticed that they love daisies or that they can’t get enough dark chocolate to soothe their cravings. Make a small note and have a package sent to their office. It will show everyone in the office that your real estate agent has gone above and beyond to help you throughout your process, inspire others to want to do the same, and will make your agent truly feel appreciated for all of the work that they have poured into your sale or purchase. It will show them that you care and that you took the time to learn about them in the same way that they took the time to learn about you. It is one of the few gifts in life that can be shared and received equally.
Take Your Agent Out To A Good Meal At Their Favorite Restaurant
Sure, your agent can probably pay for their own food. Maybe they pack a lunch most days or are on the go often. But, wouldn’t you like to take a little bit of their free time and show them what it means to you? Most real estate agents are real people just like you and your family members, so they will appreciate a little tender loving and appreciation. Most people like to eat every once in awhile, and very few people will turn down the prospect of free food from their favorite restaurant.
While you cannot force them to eat out with you if they do not want to, make sure that you at least offer if you are capable. The sentiment of offering often does just the same amount of work as the actual meal itself.
Write Your Agent A Heart-Felt Letter
Your agent really is a real person with real feelings. Maybe they turned you down for a meal, maybe they are allergic to flowers, or maybe they are just quiet and reserved in their own personal free time. All people, yourself included, like to know they are appreciated. All people like to know that what they have worked so hard to do has been noticed. If you can’t afford to spend a lot of money, or you just don’t know much about your agent’s personal preferences, send them a letter. Make it as heart-felt and sincere as you can. Tell them about your frustrations and how they worked to ease them. There is little you can say in appreciation that will make them upset, angry, or unnoticed.
If you have noticed small deeds of kindness from your agent, make sure to include those as well. They will be impressed that you noticed all of the small details. Remember, nothing is too small to be appreciated, including the one night call you had to them that woke them from their sleep on a random Sunday.
