Gosh, I don't say anything clever when I do pop-bys - just wish them well for the season!

Most people don't want 'salespeople' knocking on their doors so, when you're just you, I think they're more appreciative. Just my humble opinion!

Pop bys are not meant to be accompanied with a sales pitch... It's just a way to stay in touch and say thank you for your business.  Wish them a safe and happy Hallowe'en..

Just stopping by to add some Halloween fun for you and your family.  

I'm not sure where the Buffini add on comes in, but think something like that is good enough to say when you do a pop by.

In the past I've made tags and put them around the stem.  I used "Happy Halloween to your Lil Pumpkin" and "Real Estate doesn't haven to be scary w/ me on your side"....    The tag can be clever but just "be you" with the interaction.  Have fun!

My thought:  If YOU don't know what to say then perhaps you are not comfortable dropping them off. Be authentic. Be yourself. Be REAL. 

No Gimmicks.  You don't need a clever thing to say to connect with people. You just need to be yourself.

I don't know if others who are not in real estate would know what a Buffini Sticker is - maybe they will think it's the name of your company Colleen Kelly.  I know when I drop off homemade Christmas cookies, I just say, "Merry Christmas - I'm Thinking of You - and Want to Wish you a Happy Holiday!"  There is no mention of real estate or that I'm a realtor - it's just more a smile and having a few words so that they know I remember them (our niche is an age-restricted community).  Not scripted at all.  I do think a pumpkin is a wonderful way to wish someone a Happy Fall and a Happy Halloween!

Only thing that comes to mind is "trick or treat"  ;).  Not sure why you need the Buffini sticker though, that won't mean anything to non-agents.  Just be genuine and wish them a happy fall/winter/etc.
