If you’re looking for a fun, creative way to express your thanks and reconnect with friends, family and clients during the holidays, consider doing more than just sending out a card or calendar. The more unique your idea is, the better. And as much as we all love when FedEx or UPS arrives with a bounty of packages, nothing beats a personal delivery to show someone how much you care.

For a group of Marin County Coldwell Banker agents in San Rafael, the holiday season starts with the perfect pie. Tom Benoit, Ben Klugman, Scott Cherry, Terri Dawson, Mac and Jin Pourtabib, Russ Knudsen, Tom and Jennifer Loucks, Jola Jankowska and Hetti Schramm are carrying on a tradition of giving pie to their clients at Thanksgiving. This year over 500 delicious pies went out to happy clients to enjoy. One small gesture that is sure to make a lasting impression.

Client gifts can be extravagant or inexpensive, homemade or store bought. Whether it be a delicious pie or something else, the idea is to create a connection. By taking the time to deliver something special this holiday season, you just might make someone’s day a little brighter.
