Thanksgiving is the perfect time of year to check in on clients and boost your referrals. Without constant follow-ups, clients will likely forget about a real estate agent that helped them buy or sell a few years back. Here are some tips for staying top of mind so you receive a constant string of referral business:
Throw a party. Everyone likes an excuse to go out for free entertainment and food. What better way to show clients you care than throwing a party in their honor? A client Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion for letting them know how thankful you are for their business.
Give away goodies. If a party is too big of a commitment, set aside a day or two for laid-back holiday meetups in the office. Decorate the space with seasonal decor and give away themed goodies, such as pies, apple crisps or other autumnal treats.
Send a holiday email. At the very least, send your clients a Happy Thanksgiving email. Try to personalize it for every recipient, if possible. Also, include a seasonal picture of yourself or your team so it doesn’t come across as generic and forgettable.
