Gift for realtor

My realtor has been so so so sooooo good to us. I want to get her a small gift for when we close. I am going to get her a gift card to this frozen yogurt place she loves! But I want to get her something more then that. Any ideas. I am trying to think of something thoughtful, but since we are buying a house, obviously we are broke :-) hahaha

TIA

No. They give the gift

At least that's what is done out where I live. It's their way of thanking us for that commission they are getting for that sale.

They will earn a nice commission off the sale of your house. My realtor didn't get me anything when I bought my house, he didn't even show up at the closing to collect his check, my lawyer took it for him.

I agree that the realtor brings the gift. I think the best gift you could give her is a nice card with the promise that you will recommend her to all your friends and family. Sing her praises with words and she will keep that card forever. You could put in a gift card for her favorite yogurt as a nice little touch.

I would write a beautiful thank you note and refer business to them - that is all. usually the realtor gives the gift and considering you just gave them THOUSANDS of dollars lets hope you get one. Last time my realtor gave me a 1K gift cert to a furniture store - believe me it didnt' make a dent in what we paid her.

We gave ours a bottle of wine and a gift card. But she did help us big time. We had already agreed and signed to the price of the house, and she called off the record to tell us that houses in the area had decreased in prices and if we called corporate office and asked, they would chop our price too. They cut $13,000 off.

I think that's very sweet of you to think of her. I'd definitely say a nice card and a small gift card to the yogurt place is more than enough.

Realtors in my area usually gift the buyer...usually a plant for the home. So I think anything you give her will be unexpected and appreciated...I wouldn't go overboard.

Congrats!
