Did you know that Realtors in the USA spend more than $510 million each year on home closing perks? Most of these perks come in the form of traditional items from gift cards (59.5 percent) and flowers to plants (37.2 percent), and gift baskets (36.7 percent).
One of the keys to my success, helping me rank in the top 1% of Sotheby’s International Realty agents nationwide, is my belief that gratitude is the best attitude. That’s why I go out of my way to celebrate closings with my clients in unique, personal ways. Here are some of my favorites:
1. Weekend retreat to Post Ranch Inn
This “sanctuary for the soul” is located high atop the cliffs of Big Sur, 1200 feet above the Pacific Ocean. With natural architecture embracing the coast’s dramatic beauty, a weekend in this rustic and elegant location is something my clients will always remember. The scenery in this area is absolutely breath taking with dramatic cliffs, rocks and redwood trees surrounding the sparkling ocean. There’s a wide range of eclectic restaurant plus some of the best hiking trails in the nation.
2. Ojai Valley Inn & Spa
Another one of my favorite places to celebrate is the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. This magical place offers an abundant amount of luxurious amenities and special services that let my clients know how much they are valued. The town of Ojai is absolutely charming. The community has long been known as a haven for artists, musicians and health enthusiasts. It’s a vibrant place with natural beauty everywhere, along with fine dining, quaint shops and art galleries.
3. Couples Massage at Shiatsu Rincon
Shiatsu is a Japanese style acupressure massage, very helpful in restoring the smooth flow of chi or life energy through the body. It is rooted in Chinese Medicine and treats the body, mind and spirit as one integrated whole. What better way to celebrate closing than spending the day in Carpinteria, leaving renewed and energized, ready to move in to your new home.
4. Missoni Beach Towels
My all-time favorite gift to give upon closing is a pair of iconic Missoni Beach Towels. The Missoni design house stands out in the fashion industry as an original. What better way to congratulate a client than by giving them a pair of sumptuous beach towels to wrap themselves in luxury?
