  • Their commision is their gift, IMO.

  • Their commision is usually enough. I sold houses for three years and never got a gift, but I GAVE a gift to everyone that closed with me. I bought a bunch of beautiful picture frames, then after closing I would take their picture in front of their new house, and a few weeks after move in I would stop by and present them with a picture in frame, with the closing (or move in) date and address embossed in gold.

  • The gift is all the money they are getting out of you. Gifts are for friends and people you love, not hire. Don`t feel obligated.

  • I also believe that their huge commission is their gift. But the last house we sold I gave my Realtors a nice plant for their office as a thank you because it was a very long process and they also helped us find a house in this mortgage mess and it took a year with a lot of let downs. But normally we have gotten a nice gift from our Realtors for choosing them.

  • I sent a thank you to our realtor, this was our third through her and she is awesome. We didn't use a loan officer this time (no mortgage) and last time it was a huge pressure and we weren't happy with the service at all so no, there was no thank you for her. Our first house the loan was sold within a month of purchase so nope, no thank you there either.

  • No they get enough money out of you or the other person that is their gift I feel like it's your home and they get way to much money for what they do, do It's their job no gift
