Writing the Perfect Thank-You Note

The thank-you note is a staple tool for the relationship-focused real estate agent! Not only are they great for strengthening your relationship with current clients, but they can make the difference for good testimonials and even referral business. Here’s how to write the perfect thank-you note.

  • Handwrite it. Emails and texts are convenient and quick, but they just aren’t as memorable as a handwritten card. There’s something so personal and touching about being the recipient of a real, paper card that someone took the effort to write and mail. Handwritten notes will put you head and shoulders above your digital-only competitors.
  • Express Yourself. Not sure what to write? Make it personal by starting with their name. Then, get to the point by thanking them directly for whatever you’re grateful for — a listing, a showing, a purchase, etc. Including a personal detail about your experience with them is a great way to show that this isn’t a canned message. Don’t forget to sign it!
  • Personalize it. You don’t want to be unprofessional, but don’t be scared to show a little personality! Whether that means quirky stationery, stickers, or personalized doodles, the recipient will appreciate a human touch.

Everyone appreciates the personal message that a handwritten card sends! Make sure you’re making the most of this easy, highly effective tool.

My wife and I recently

My wife and I recently purchased our home in Joliet, and we used Jim Passi from CityWide Mortgage to get our mortgage. Throughout the entire time, from the first moment we called him to the closing day and beyond, Jim was just amazing. He answered all our questions, some repeatedly, with grace and compassion. He even worked with me while I was having a few temper tantrums on him.

Jim took the time to explain every detail of the process to us, because we have no clue about this process. We aren’t finance people. He is extremely patient with us on every question, and aspect of the mortgage process from preapproval all the way up and through the closing. He explained to us why he does things the way he does, versus the way other brokers do things, and they make complete sense.

We will and DO recommend Jim from CityWide Mortgage to everyone looking to purchase a home today or in the future. Jim is the best mortgage guy one can work with.

Thank you for all you did for us.
