What’s a real estate broker to do in order to celebrate a client’s “house-iversary” when there’s little or no equity in the house? OFFER CHOCOLATE!! I love making people feel special and when it comes to a client’s house-iversary (I probably made up that word – I’m known to do things like that), I like to come up with a new way to celebrate it each year. Sometime I’ll have to do a blog post about the house-shaped cards I’ve made for clients.
I was happy to use my new “Handy Man” Cricut cartridge for the first time. I bought it because it offered a way to cut a house shaped basket! Last year when this particular family bought their house, I made them a replica of their new home as a card and featured a picture of them in the front door. For their first house-iversary, I made them this basket and filled it with chocolate equity a.k.a chocolate gold coins!
When I drove out to Issaquah just to deliver this I shouted, “HAPPY HOUSE-IVERSARY!” and was immediately shushed because the baby was sleeping, but that was followed by a huge hug and a tour of the house. I had a fun impromptu visit with her and after she gave me my empty pickle jars from last year, I headed back to my office in Kent.
Here are the goodies I filled the house with. Below the chocolates in yellow shredded “sizzle” paper.
When I first made an attempt to take a picture of the paper house basket, my cat hopped onto the table… naughty kitty!
Finally, here is the house without the chocolate:
Tell me, does your real estate broker do this kind of stuff for you? 😉 Thanks for reading my blog!
