Crazy Shit In Real Estate

Summary:

Who doesn’t like giving (or receiving!) a good gift, right? Angela Burgess, CEO of the Gaston Association of Realtors, got creative with her gift-giving one Christmas, and the experience left her with a greater appreciation for thoughtful, connecting gifts. It’s easy to get stuck giving generic gifts that end up getting tossed, forgotten or – dare I say it – re-gifted. But, give a gift that connects to a memory or cherished moment with a client, family member, or friend, and you’ve given something much greater than just a one-time gift. Listen in to hear what Angela did, and get inspired to get creative with your gift-giving, too.
