Should I give my Realtor a gift after closing?
No, not really. 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.
