I am sure the Real Estate agent will be very happy with some great reviews on this site and some referrals or perhaps you could go out for lunch!

The types of things you mention are probably fine, but as an agent, I would actually prefer lots of nice reviews on different web sites &amp; referrals to all your acquaintances who are looking to buy or sell a home - more business that results from this would be the greatest gift ever!

The best gift (sorry about the cliche here) you can give your agent is the gift of friendship, strong referrals that can be used in public domain and keep her business cards handy to give to friends who come to see your new house! Your agent will always want to be available to you down the road for years to come for advice and to continue a good relationship...
