Yes, you sealed the deal for now, but what about the future? You still want to get more deals, right? One sure shot way to that is by pleasing your current customers to get future referrals. So, seal the deal of receiving future deals too by taking a cue from some of the ideas below:
1. A wine hamper
A wine hamper is a perfect gift to raise a toast with your clients to their new house and to you working hard to secure the deal. You can go the extra mile by putting in some personalized wine glasses engraved with your customer’s initials/names, a bottle of luxurious wine, a corkscrew, and maybe some cheese or chocolates to go with it.
You could pack it all in a big black box with your brand initials (or logo) engraved on the lid. A wine hamper would make a great closing gift because it’s the right mix of personal and thoughtful.
Your clients feel great because you put in some lovely personal touches, but it was not too personal either.
2. Outdoor bench
If your new homeowners have a beautiful garden/patio overlooking the house, you might want to give a beautiful outdoor bench for their home that will make them happy.
Gifting an outdoor bench would be an attentive way to show that you genuinely care for your clients, and want them to settle in comfortably at their new abode.
Plus points are, it won’t take up any space in their house, so, no need to worry about not matching with other furniture items. And, if they have a big enough backyard, they could move the bench anywhere they wish to.
3. Custom house portrait
New home calls for unique decor, right? So get your new homeowners something wonderful that they can display in their new home. Like a custom engraved portrait of their house!
It is a one-of-a-kind, specially-made, and highly-personalized gift item via which your clients will definitely remember you, each time they lay their eyes on it. This one’s a perfect decor item too; both a little personal and professional and extremely gorgeous.
Your clients had a hard time finding their perfect home, and a portrait celebrating their journey will surely secure some future referrals for you.
4. Something for the kitchen
Whether your new buyers are a fan of cooking or not, they will surely eat their food and hence need cutlery. You could therefore choose from a range of premium cutlery sets, starting from vintage-looking pieces to personalized engraved ones as your realtors’ closing gifts.
Moreover, every time they eat their food with that cutlery, they will remember you and your brilliant services that got them their wonderful home.
Remembering, giving something as personal as a cutlery set will be a sure-fire way to initiate conversation (if it is striking enough) about your brand in front of their friends and family.
But make sure whatever you choose feels like you thought about it and spend some time looking for it if you want to impress those clients.
5. Luxurious scents
You could curate a box of different scents: for example, a cool wooden tray arranged with an aromatic candle jar, an organic reed diffuser with a set of various scents to choose from, a bag of potpourri, and a room freshener.
Maybe, throw in some more small tea candles or replace the reed diffuser with a fragrance vaporizer and a few bottles of essential oils! Put it all together with some beautiful ribbons and a small card on the top, and you are good to go.
The new owner(s) will surely love to spread a little aroma around their new home and words of your beautiful gesture to their friends, who may be interested in buying a new property, and would probably choose you as their estate agent.
6. Housewarming party
Last but not least, offer to host a housewarming party for the new homeowners! It’s a great way to show them that they are so much more than just clients.
Moreover, you could also have the opportunity to connect with their friends and family at the gathering, getting invaluable contacts, introductions and, referrals to potential clients.
People interested in buying a house could be at that party, and they may find it amazing that you care about the people you deal with, and, therefore, might choose you as their estate agent.
For instance, you may arrange food from the local caterers and look out for all the tiny details like paper napkins, paper plates, cutlery, beverages, and maybe even wine or champagne to celebrate the occasion.
As a great gesture, offer to stay back and help clean. Often the smallest kind gestures that otherwise feel unnoticeable leave the most lasting impressions.
