For the Real Estate Professional

The Perfect Closing Gift™

“The gift they will always remember from the Realtor they will never forget.”

I recently attended a real estate trade show, where I had the fortune of being located next to the creators of a very unique and clever product.

Throughout the day, I couldn’t help but see how much interest this item received from the hundreds of real estate professionals in attendance.

I feel their website describes their product and purpose best:

The purchase and sale of a home is an emotion-filled lifetime event that deserves to be commemorated. What more delightful closing gift could you give your buyer or seller than a watercolor imaged photo of their new or former home? The nominal cost of such a gift belies its value as a treasured keepsake of a lifetime memory.

Make a lasting impression on your clients by giving them a gift that will remind them of their home, and of you, every time they see it.
A great idea from a retired Realtor for Realtors.

Sold On Heritage Hills

Buyers can be choosy when selecting a home in this 2,700-unit condo community. To stand out and sell quickly, agent and seller choose home staging.

Staging leads to over 40 showings in 3 months for this rare 2-bedroom, 1,600-square-foot Berkshire model.

As you can see from this listing picture, the home garnered attention from the first day, with its open floor plan, high ceilings, and grand staircase.

Staging makes this home a standout – online and in person – and gives the home seller an opportunity to begin the arduous task of downsizing.
