I make homemade cookies for any clients who closed/signed lease in the past year and I hand deliver them at Christmas time. For any other past clients, I just keep in touch my normal way - all year long.

In my home, I set up one tree upon which I will hang lights and Christmas cards as ornaments.

The cards I send to family, friends and clients in any status is to perpetuate this tradition. The cards must be suitable for hanging or display.

And when they invite me to their Holiday party, I see I am making a difference in the world.

Like Joe Pryor - it's a selective process because there are simply so many. We add their 'status' to our database - everyone gets something but, all don't get hand-written/signed cards.  We start in September addressing envelopes and writing the cards.  

This year, we decided that in 2017, we're going to do some of our list each month the first few months - just the cards and the names on the envelopes in case we have to change the address!  This is where a great CRM comes in handy!
