This can be a very thankless job at times. You don't have to spend much to show her your appreciation. Bake cookies or brownies for her. Better yet, write her a great review so she can earn more business. Good Luck :) Fri, 11 May 2012 01:49:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Gift-Giving-Ethics/442318/ 2012-05-11T01:49:00Z Whatever you give, she will ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Gift-Giving-Ethics/442318/ Whatever you give, she will have to turn over to her broker first.
