15 Thank You Note to Real Estate Agent Samples

When a real estate agent helps you to buy or sell a home, you can follow up with a nice thank you note to show your appreciation.

Were you a picky buyer that tested their patience? Did your real estate agent work out a short sale deal with the bank for you?

Take a few moments to write your real estate agent a thank-you note. There are example thank-you notes for your REALTOR® below.

I recommend a handwritten note that they can display in their office. The last time I worked with a real estate agent, I sent him a handwritten card which he kept on his desk for many weeks! However, you could send the agent a thank-you email.
