Is it proper etiquette to give a real estate agent a gift after a closing ?

I was happy with her services but forget if it's normal to give them something else on top of all the big money I allready gave them . I used the agent for both homes . Do they expect something or not ?

The agent won't expect a gift, after all he/she earned a large commission (as you stated). But for service above and beyond (and especially if you plan on using his/her services again) a gift is a wonderful statement... More

To be honest if you really liked the service a thank you note is more than enough. They know that a happy customer could lead to more commissions in the future. My experiences have been that the agent has sent me a thank you gift for the nice commission I provided them not the other way around.

I think it is a great idea but you might give your agent a heart attack. While it is a great idea, it is not normally done. The best present you can give your agent is a testimonial of what a great job they did or a referral to a friend or family member that may be interested in buying or selling... More

Wow!... that would be a very kind gesture, but one certainly not customary nor expected! I'm sure though, it would be greatly appreciated by your agent!! I'm glad to hear that you had a great experience!

Unless he/she worked pro-bono (which you already stated they didn't), then say thanks and leave it at that. If you liked his/her level of customer service, the best compliment and thank-you is future referrals.
