QUESTION...

So, we close on our house this coming up Wednesday morning...we've never done this before, and I was wondering if you are supposed to get your real estate agent a gift. Now, I know she's making crazy commission anyway, but do you go ahead and get a gift as well?

If so...any suggestions? Did any of you get your real estate agent a gift?

No, we didn't. I wasn't aware people did that. I don't think many of my friends here who own homes did it either. But if I were to get something and if your real estate agent is female get her a plant.

We never did, and I've never heard of that. They gave us one, as a congratulations on the new house, but you're paying her VERY nicely and it's her job.

Nope, we didn't give ours a gift. And I agree with Lauren...it's her JOB!

Get ready to sign your names many, many, many times! I was so shaken up and anxious at our closing, they offered me a beer! HA!

I agree - no gift - that commission is gift enough. Hopefully the agent will give you guys a really nice "welcome to your new home" basket of goodies!

I decided that I'll quit just reading and start commenting since you're in on the blogger get together for this summer! :?) These blog connections are still a bit crazy to me...

I don't think you have to give a gift- since you are actually giving her the gift of comission- how about a nice Thank you card- you know- Thank you for helping us find a great place etc... : ) Just my thoughts. So excited for you!

audrey t- YAE! thanks for posing!! and i look forward to the blogger get together! ;) it MUST happen! too fun..
