I gave my broker a big kiss. My broker is my wife.
No, I never thought of that honestly.
Not usually! As a broker, never expected it!
No. I do not give the broker a Christmas present.
I'm the broker now, but I used to give "superiors" gifts if they were good at their job. I would normally give a book on a subject they are interested in.
Good morning Sally. We stopped that tradition a long time ago.
Sally K. & David L. Hanson great idea - never done that.....
No I do not. Years ago yes. We have no party or gift exchange or acknowledgement that it is Christmas.
I give a gift to everyone in my office. We are very small. That includes my broker.
I give myself a present everytime I sell a home. A Whopper!
Yes, but he is also my father so not giving him a present would be weird.
No most just expect the boss to give, give, and give some more.
Hopefully a great closing check from one of my referrals to her.
No, we voted it down. Only give to secretaries/assistants of which we have 2 shifts.
yes, I always do....it's usually a very expensive bottle of something special.....a different one every year....
No, I bring in deals the entire year that should be enough.
And I thought the sales force is the gift that a broker receives year-round.
I am the broker, but even when I did, we did not exchange gifts.
Yes, I used to every year when I had one (basically mine is virtual now). My bride always baked homemade brownies for my special gifts. But, once in a while I bought her a gift I knew she'd like, because I knew her well and what she enjoyed (hobbies & interests). Gifts tend to reflect how well we know a person.
Broker is treated well all year by everyone as he is well worth it....
Yes...after every deal they get a check!
Yes. I give him a gift card to a place he likes to dine at or shop.
Yes. Their split!
We do the exchange and steal game.
My broker has been the fire department when things started to go wrong.
He has encouraged me to 'hang in there' when things were sparse.
He invites me to join his family on the boat.
I can use his back yard to start my weekend paddling on the Weekie Wachee River.
Why would I let his business role dictate how and when I acknowledge the benefit presented to me in many dimensions?
Do I present the acknowledgment in an environment where 'agents' can spin it improperly. No.
I have done sometimes if I am in town during the holidays.
Yes it's a habit, Starbucks gift card
