Do you have to give your Realtor a gift after closing? No, not really. Real Estate agents rarely get gifts at closing. It is not that their efforts aren't appreciated by their clients, its that most home sellers and buyers are too busy moving after closing to think about delivering Realtor closing gifts.
Gifts are pleasant surprises because they are unexpected but greatly appreciated.
Now if you are wondering what type of gift to send to your Realtor that will adequately reflect your gratitude, here is a suggestion.
The reason real estate agents don't turn into one-hit wonders and crawl off to die somewhere is because they receive referrals and reviews from satisfied clients. Referrals are the backbone of an agent's business. Without referrals, agents are scratching in the dirt for clients. If you found value, pass it on. Referrals are the gold standard of gifts. Same goes for posting a positive online review for your Realtor.
Gift certificates, flowers, trinkets or wine to name a few, are great options also.

"Margarita Zhemukhova very quickly found us the property we were looking for at a price we could afford. In working with her we found her to be always available to meet, very prompt in returning e-mails and phone calls (within minutes), pro-active in altering us to the next steps in closing and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone needing real estate services.
