Summer pop-by ideas for real estate professionals
1. S’mores kit.
Potential Slogan: If you know someone who is looking to buy or sell a home, I would love S’MORE referrals.
No summer would be complete without making a s’more by a campfire. You can help your clients check this essential activity off of their to-do list by leaving a s’mores kit at their front door. You can make up kits of your own by dropping two marshmallows, a brick of chocolate, and a few graham crackers in a cellophane bag. Alternatively, you can buy multiple packages of each ingredient and give each client their own set.
A note of caution when giving edible gifts: If you’re planning on giving edible gifts and they’re not in their original packaging, make sure that you include a list of ingredients with your pop-by. Unfortunately, food-related gifts can be tricky because they can pose an allergy risk. In this case, it’s better to provide the information and be safe rather than sorry.
2. Grilling spatula.
Potential Slogan: Are you ready to FLIP over great real estate deals? Let me help you find the perfect property.
If there’s one constant that holds true, it’s that summer is the season for outdoor grilling. With that in mind, a grilling spatula is the perfect tool to use as your summer pop-by. If you’re not sure whether your clients have a grill in their backyard, you could also switch the outdoor version of this tool for your basic kitchen spatula and your gift will have the same effect.
3. Seasonal fruit jam.
Potential slogan: Real estate is my JAM! Give me a call the next time you have a question about buying or selling a home.
Fruit jam is a pop-by that’s almost guaranteed to be appreciated by everyone who is lucky enough to be on your drop-off list. If you love to cook, this is an easy and affordable pop-by that you can make on your own with just a few ingredients. However, even if you decide to buy a pre-made version, seasonality is the key to freshness. In the summertime, berries, cherries, apricots, and peaches are all good choices.
4. Grill seasoning packet.
Potential Slogan: If you’re looking to buy or sell a home, you need a SEASONED agent to help you through the process. I’m more than happy to assist.
We can all agree that summer is the perfect time to hit the grill. Whether it’s during backyard barbecues or just a regular weeknight dinner, this summer pop-by seasoning packet is likely to get used by your clients. Plus, they’ll remember you each time they use it. If you want to take this gift to the next level, consider buying a custom or bespoke blend that your clients won’t be able to find in the grocery store.
5. Ice cream scoop.
Potential slogan: Need the SCOOP on the real estate market? I’ve got you covered.
Who doesn’t love ice cream on hot summer days and throughout the year? If you leave an ice cream scoop at your client’s door, it will undoubtedly be used for parties, get-togethers, and late-night snacking. Best of all, since you’re not including any food with this pop-by, you don’t have to worry about causing an allergy risk. Your clients can use the scoop to serve up any kind of dessert they’d like, whether it’s non-dairy or otherwise.
6. Battery-powered fan.
Potential slogan: The real estate market is HOT right now. Hire a professional to help you keep your COOL.
Though it may not seem like much, a battery-powered fan can be a great summer pop-by. Whether they keep it in their bag for on-the-go use or by the front porch for easy access, it will help them keep cool all summer long. That said, if you’re willing to spend a little more on your pop-by gifts, a small standing fan will likely also be very appreciated by all of your clients.
