I rotate it.

I decide one of two ways:

The theme: Mother's Day, Father's Day, Pet Owner-items, etc. dictates who.

No theme, Referral Maker CRM by Buffini & Company tells me who needs a pop by.

Seena,

Like Michael Jacobs we did not pop by.  I hated when agents popped by our house in Los Angeles with a gift of some sort.  I remember one who came buy with a teeny, tiny plant in a teeny tiny pot as a gift.  Her motto was "I am planting  myself in your mind."  It was a nice gesture, however it was meaningless.  In Napa, we had flags put on our mailbox on the 4th.  It would be evident to anyone with nefarious intentions of robbing your home that you were not home, if you did not pluck that flag off right away.  Again, nice thought, but executed without fully thinking about potential consequences.  Same with door hangers!

No. and NO!

I let opportunity and the opportunist spirit guide me.

Same gift, if defined as an 'experience opportunity' I would respond yes.

However some would say a walk in the Big Cypress Swamp and a trip to he Dali museum are different. I say they are both EXPERIENCE gifts.
