During the week before Thanksgiving each year, Megan Beechen, PSA, SFR, 27, delivers Costco apple pies festooned with bows and personal notes to former clients. “I keep in touch with all my past clients in various ways throughout the year. I find myself bonding with first-time buyers so deeply that I call many of them very close friends.” The pies are a happy way to get face-to-face with people she has helped, some from years before. Her drop-offs are not scheduled, so she leaves the pie at the front door if no one answers. Those who open the door are “eager to show me the changes they’ve made in their house.” Beechen earned a certification in home staging and often assists clients with decorating and remodeling ideas. Rearranging the furniture and decor in her own condo is her stress reliever, she says.
