5 Thank You Note Templates for Loan Officers
When was the last time you took a moment to send a thank you note to a lead, customer, or someone who referred business to you? Of course, you’re appreciative of their business or kind recommendations, but you’re also extremely busy and the last thing on your mind is sending thank you notes.
Plus, what would you even say in your message to them? You’re well-spoken, but you don’t necessarily consider yourself a writer.
Here’s the conundrum: not writing thank you notes makes you feel ungrateful, but the idea of writing them causes anxiety.
There’s no need to worry. Here are five thank you note templates for loan officers who want to share their gratitude. Simply copy and paste them in an email, and you’ll be ready to go. Oh, and while you’re writing, try to add in some personal details to make the letters feel truly customized.
1. For potential clients you’ve just met or spoken with
Dear [First Name],
Thank you for taking a moment to reach out and inquire about potentially working with me as you purchase a new home or refinance the home you love. I know this process can be confusing, so don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have.
I also know that you have many options of loan officers you can work with, and I’d like to be the person you choose.
Here are a few testimonials some of my recent clients have shared. I hope their words help to convince you that working with me is a smart decision.
I hope to hear from you soon,
2. For potential clients who just closed on a home

3. For clients you’d like a recommendation or referral from
Hello [Client’s first name],

[Insert some sort of compliment here, such as “Your organizational skills made this process run so smoothly” or “You were so easy to communicate with every step of the way.” Try to personalize this to the client for maximum effect.]
If you have a moment, would you be willing to recommend me on [insert site and make sure to hyperlink to the site to make it easier for your client]? I would appreciate that so much.

4. For clients a year after their house closed
Hi, [Client’s first name],
You’ve been in your “new” home for an entire year now. I’m writing to wish you a happy anniversary, and let you know that I hope you’re settling in well and making memories there to last a lifetime.
I’m so fortunate to have worked with you during your home-buying experience, and I’d love to stay in contact in the future. If you or one of your friends or family members are ever looking to buy, sell, or refinance your home, I sincerely hope you’ll reach out to me.
Here to help, [Your name]
