10 days until Christmas—Which do you like to receive a Christmas card with a personal note or a family photo?

 Christmas_ball_DAh the age old question do like to receive a hand written card or a family photo.  Some people would say it depends on who is sending it.  I’m just glad to get mail the old fashioned way.  Social media being what it is, I get excited when I get a card that was hand addressed.  Christmas is a time of giving and remembering those around you.  Will you be sending a personal note or a Christmas photo.  I’ll take either, just don’t leave me out.  I have always enjoyed getting mail, around my birthday is the best, but Christmas comes a close second.  Photos give you a reason to call and say how much the little ones have grown and the personal note may spark memories of Christmas’ past.

  E-mail this and e-mail that, the twelve days of Christmas could be

My REALTOR Perspective: As a professional  REALTOR I embrace social media, but I still use the phone, visit my clients and I really enjoy sending a personal note.  The personal touch is alive and well with me.  I have made that personal note a part of my commitment to Make Some bodies Day.  Yes I think of something specific and personal to write to that special person and I hand address it as well.  I leave the return address to a label, but I believe that if it’s worth sending it’s worth sending from me not from some automated mailing house.  Personal is best and by the way..I’m never too busy for your referrals!
