Is it OK to tip your realtor?
No tip, but a referral with recommendation is perfect. No tip – you already paid their commission! If you’re still awash in cash after your closing, save it for your property taxes. That’s what the agent makes, about 1.5%.
Do you give Realtor a gift at closing?
Realtors and other real estate agents rarely get gifts at closing. It’s not that their efforts aren’t appreciated by their clients, it’s that most home sellers and buyers are too busy moving after closing to think about delivering realtor closing gifts. Maybe one out of ten clients will give a thank you gift.
How do you thank your real estate agent?

- Personalized coffee mug.
- Starbucks gift card.

- Cell Phone battery extender.
Who do you tip at a house closing?
Typically, title companies pay closers $35 to $50 per closing, and closers rely heavily on tips — ranging from $150 to $250 — paid by the seller. An enterprising and busy closer can pull in up around $100,000 a year, according to interviews with several closers.
