Appreciate Back Office - 2


In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and the Westside, Gratitude Works! In Real Estate, we are privileged to have support personnel. With privilege comes responsibility. Our responsibility to them includes appreciation. 


Each time I go to Closing, I bring a basket of gifts for the Back Office Staff. Nothing big and everything individually wrapped. Small indulgences that people rarely buy for themselves. In fact, I don't generally buy them for myself!

Why? Because I am grateful to them for how good their efforts make me look.

 

I keep a beautiful basket full of scented soaps and lotions for the staff to see and choose day of Closing. Two people work remotely and the gifts have to travel to reach them. Two others work in other branch offices. Those travel with the Inter-Office paperwork.

By now, over ten years after starting with them, I know that Beth likes coconut and Kassidi likes Lavendar and Peter likes men's sandalwood. Somehow the basket manages to have those every time!

They are the ones who make sure that the Title Search is done accurately. They are the ones who process a seemingly endless series of paperwork and don't lose anything! They are the ones who work Pre-Closing and Closing and Post-Closing so all the details fall into place.

 

These people are never "seen" but they make everything work smoothly.

Thank You One and All

All the best - Lynn

It’s always important to be aware of those around you and to appreciate them. As Dwayne Johnson says, it’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice.

Good morning, Lynn B. Friedman I'm sure there are very few, if any at all, who remember those key people in the "back office".... without their focus and total attention to your closing, you would have significant issues and possibly not close.... that's a great gesture.... and I'm sure it was well received....

Good morning, Lynn... our admin staff in my brokerage are simply awesome and deserve a show of gratitude on a regular basis. Where would we be without them?

Lynn we are much stronger with a good support team, and it is important for them to know we appreciate and value them.

Good Morning, Lynn!

That's a really thoughtful gesture that I never heard anyone else do before, but leave it to you, a woman with a giving heart who cares so much about others. 

Lynn, your caring heart is truly appreciated!
