Seriously, I don't like to give gifts because there's a reason. I like to give gifts because there's no reason.

I mail them a thank you note with a $5.00 or $10.00 gift card to a place I know they like: Trader Joes, Starbucks, Gas, Car Wash etc. Upfront to reward and thank the behavior of referring me.  If it closes escrow I take them to lunch or something like that if a meal isn't practical for their schedule. It's an attitude of gratitude that keeps me 100% working by referral..

Relevant, useful information (like the value of their home). Seller's Corner, one of our marketing tools, does that automatically for past clients. It keeps them in the loop and, perhaps more importantly, on your radar (for when they eventually sell). - Tim
