Showing appreciation to our clients in our own special way does work wonders. In order to receive, we have to give. And in giving out, although our mindset is to instill impression to keep the business relationship, we should gift as a token of appreciation for the trust they bestowed upon by choosing us among other hundreds of realtors in your area.
