The 2020 holiday season is just around the corner and businesses from every industry are eagerly making plans to show their gratitude to the base of customers who stuck by their side — by mailing business holiday cards. Real estate agents are no different. Mailing end of the year holiday cards is always a good idea, but in a year like 2020 it’s a no brainer. Everyone, regardless of their situation, has gone through some form of struggle this year.
Two important reasons it makes good business sense for Real Estate agents to mail holiday cards —
Customer retention & relationship building.
Real estate business is about building connections. You’d be remiss not to take advantage of bonding over the garbage fire that was 2020 and sharing your gratitude with your clients during this unusually tumultuous holiday season. Make sure they know how much you value their loyalty and business.
Word of mouth builds clientele.
If you hope to continue building your list of clients into 2021, you’re likely working very hard to market your services. Your clients — who presumably already know and love your work — will be attending one virtual holiday party after another starting in just a few weeks. Staying at the forefront of your clients’ minds will help them to recall your business when conversation ultimately shifts to real estate. Let them do the marketing for you.
So while most any business holiday card can be used by real estate agents here are some picks especially geared for this area of business.

What to say inside your company holiday cards?
Are you at a loss for words? Not sure what to say in your business holiday message? Here are some tips to get you thinking:
- Keep it simple.
The cards are going to be smaller than your typical letters so don’t try to fit in a business report or bullet point all of your current listings. Keep your message short and sweet.
- Send your warmest wishes.
Keep your messaging personal without getting too specific on the holidays. Unless you know exactly what your customers celebrate — simply wish them a happy holiday or season’s greetings.
- Thank your customers.
Acknowledging the difficulties that everyone has experienced this year, add a short note thanking them for sticking with you during such a trying time. This will keep your services at the top of their minds when they may need it again.
