 Tax season is upon us! My favorite accountants are some of my best referral sources for new clients.  Don’t overlook these number crunchers during their most stressful time of year.  That is right… now is the time to LOVE ON YOUR ACCOUNTANT. 

From now until April 15th, Accountants meet with a majority of their clients… a great time to keep top-of-mind.  Last year I began loving on these treasured referral partners with “Tax Relief Baskets”. Basically, I get a big basket and fill it with snack foods and fruit from Costco.  I stop by every week or so until April 15th and replenish their snacks.  I’ve also treated an accountant to pedicure “business meetings”.   Or maybe send a chair massage person to your favorite accountants office?  Get creative.  If you don’t have relationship with accountants, ask your clients for an introduction to their favorites.

February Pop-by Gifts Ideas!!!


At the very bottom of this page is a big list of my favorite pop-by gift ideas for February!!!  I am doing my mailbox Valentine’s again this year.   You can find the little $1 mailboxes at the dollar spot in Target again!!! So I filled up my cart this week.  Run… do not walk… to Target and stock-up.  This pop-by is a winner.  If you can’t find them at Target… I have seen larger mailboxes at JoAnns … or just throw the candies in a bag or Mason jar.  Please don’t major in the minors.  I went to Winco and bought tons of bulk Valentine’s candy.  The total cost was $2 each.

I used a sharpie to personalize the mailbox with the client’s name.  You can do this as you walk up to the door.  Never underestimate the impact of personalizing a pop-by… people love to see their name!

The tagline: Know someone looking to change their “address”? Don’t “letter” them move without calling me first.  For a “first-class” experience call… Peggy Urieff Realtor 916-622-3787

Here’s some pictures of the candy!!! It has been very hard to keep these from our girls!!!

Other quick options would be big red chocolate lips ($2 each) with a Tagline: “Thank you for ‘talking’ up my business!”

Or a cute little honey bear ($3 each) with the Tagline: “Wishing you a ‘beary’ sweet Valentine’s Day… from your honey of a realtor.” 

Well, I have the car loaded and I am off to do my pop-bys. 

And remember, I am never too busy for your Sacramento area real estate referrals.
