On July 1, 2010 I began giving 80% of my paycheck back to my clients to give to their non-profit charity group/organization or church, approved by me. The reason why I want to approve this, is to be sure that the charities and churches are in fact that.
A few years later I was asked by a client if I could give them the 80% instead. So I decided to add to my plan of giving and started to give my clients two choices the second was 50% in a store gift card of their choice and 30% to give to their non-profit charity group/organization or church.
At this point of my life I felt pretty good the way things were going, and was so happy to see my client’s faces when I followed through on giving 80% of my pay check away. Then it happened, I was talking with a friend and was asked “if I don’t have a charity or church, what will you do for me your client”? Now, adding again to my plan of giving I started to give my clients three choices, the third being 50% in a store gift card of their choice.
As I continue to grow in life I think a little humor is good for the soul. My last name is Maffia and I’ve heard about all the jokes one could say about my last name. My favorite “I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse”! So here it is, the fourth choice. You make me an offer for the 80%. (maximum amount for gift card is 50%). That I can’t refuse.
Above, are the four ways I give back to my clients here in the Charleston tri-county area. They choose either Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, or Plan D. My client by definition is a person who is buying or selling a home and has signed a buyers agreement or sellers agreement for me to represent them in buying or selling a home in my area.
Finally, on all out bound referrals (out of state/area) where I put you in contact with a realtor and receive a referral pay check after the closing of selling or buying a home. I will give 100% of my pay check to a non-profit charity of your choice. However, I may change this format as I’ve done only for the month of March 2018 to giving 100% of my referral paycheck back to you in a store gift card of your choice.
