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.

"When I sold my home I interviewed many Companies. Knowing most buyers come from the internet I was looking for a Company with a strong internet presence. I googled some terms like, "Lake Worth Homes For Sale" and "homes for sale in Lake Worth", and almost every time Exit Realty Premier was on the first page of Google. Then when I met with the agent from Exit Realty Premier and saw the HD photographs, aerial photos, on line visual tours and videos and all the technology I was sold. I signed with them and sold my home in record time, for the price I wanted and had a smooth quick closing. My agent was very professional and knowledgeable and kept me informed every step of the way.
