Industry leaders are cautioning agents working Toronto’s west end, warning them about a seemingly ideal client intent on luring them to vacant properties.
Four months after having its hand slapped by TREB, this online brokerage is closing its doors.
Wow, those are some expensive ideas! The average home in my area is 200k or less, so the commissions are nowhere near what some of the perceived image is! In my case, I've been doing woodworking since I was a kid, so when one of my clients buys a home, I make them a custom cutting board. It's unique, high quality, and something that they'll likely use on a daily basis. I even have a few other agents that come to me to make them cutting boards as well! So if you want a less expensive, but just as impactfull closing gift, try that out. (or contact me, and I can work something out with you! lol)
Over my 40 years in treat estate I have presented numerous types of closing gifts ranging from my signature white cut flowers to deluxe kitchen knives even in one case a refrigerator. Oddly enough the present that was consistently the best received was a bottle of champagne bearing our company label and wrapped prettily in clear cellophane with a large and festive red bow. It was produced by Hillenbrand wines, tasted great, and cost $11 bottle. Go figure.
best house warming gift I ever did was -- for years I would give a giftwrapped brass mailbox which I would have engraved with sellers last name -- clients loved them and when they would move after looking at it every day and remembering who gave it to them I had outstanding repeat business when it came time for them to move on - many would ask did they need to take the box with them or would I be buying a new one -- the prices were not great but the personalization made a world of difference
