When you bought your house did the realtor buy you a gift?

If so, what did they get you?

When we bought our first house our realtor got us a carbon monoxide detector and bought our kid a couple sand buckets and shovels.

  • When I still lived with my parents we bought a house that allowed me my own bathroom as a teenager! ( yay) my bathroom was filled with balloons and there was a giftcard to Bath and Body Works. Also my sister got a really neat doll and my twin brothers got dinosaurs.

  • OMG, sounds like they really cared!!! NOT! Sorry, but I think I would be a little disappointed in that type of gift.

    How funny, I sell the Scentsy wickless candle and in our area they use them for closing gifts! Something warm and friendly that says thank you I think is better than "sand buckets & shovels"...

  • No, I didn't get a gift when I bought my house 14 years ago. Different times I guess. But if I did I would be appreciative of the gesture.

  • Our realtor enrolled us in the wine of the month club. We get 4 bottles a month for the next two years. We got two gifts from Wells Fargo. We got a new 55 inch flat screen TV. It is really thin and is a $2600 TV. The other gift was ordered through their gift website online we got a really cool blender. The local branch gave the TV's to the first 20 customers who were preapproved for home loans in June.
