CyberAgent & SAPTG News - June 2014
Dear Reader

Should I give my real estate agent a gift? The estate agent has only a one in ten chance of receiving a gratitude gift. It might be that the client is too busy moving or feels that the agent's commission cheque is sufficient. If only clients would realise that the best gift they can give an estate agent is a referral and this will not cost  them a cent. The real estate agent has to impress to get that referral and win the clients backing.

We on the hand have decided to give all our real estate agents and offices a gift this month; a reduction in ID traces and contact detail requests. Find out more about this gift in New SAPTG pricing on TransUnion
