I have not and would not.  I have always believed in branding in real estate specific ways.  Just as I would never give a set of steak knives, or wine bottle opener, I would not give a face mask.  Besides being non-real estate related, it is a product born out of fear.  Keep it positive.

I have not seen them no. I would give them to clients for a laugh I suppose, but my worry about anything COVID related like that is liability "if the mask didn't work". LOL. Ahhh CA, you have made me litigation paranoid.

I have not, mainly because of the lack of inventory for those masks.  I do fully expect a line of title company branded masks and gloves to go with the existing shoe covers.

I have not seen them.  But I would worry that if I handed someone a branded face mask and they got sick even when using it, I could be held liable.  Better to provide give aways that can't come back and bite you in the future.

Just no.  That's dreadful.  I do have some that I will ask clients to wear if they do not have their own (surgical, disposable) if they are looking at a home for the foreseeable future, but nothing branded.

No, I am not seeing them, and would not order nor wear. If someone is close enough to read the real estate brand, they're too close.

I did see some face masks this morning (I just tried to find them again and can't) that looked like huge dog snouts. So if you wear it, you'd look like a dog. Hahaha. I got a kick out of that.

At press conferences, our Mayor has been wearing a cloth mask that is branded with the city logo.  The Sheriff has one with the Sheriff Department logo.

Presumably, someone who sews took a hankerchief or other piece of fabric with the logos and made them for these two politicians.

I assume these are the only two masks that look like this.  They are not giving them out to residents or customers.

I haven't seen those and I wouldn't use or give them to clients. It's like slapping a sign on the side of your car... except now you are doing it to your "person." Totally tacky. Besides, what's the purpose of tying in a pandemic of this proportion with my brand/business?

The tought of making masks has crossed my mind, especially since my clients are 55+ but if I decide to make a few, they will not be branded and a disclaimer will accompany them. Since all of Los Angeles County are asking everyone to wear a mask, I thought is was a good idea but now, I'm not sure...

 A face mask embellished with

"My Super Power is TEACHING" 

"My Super Power is TRASH PICK UP"

The list is limited only by small minds.
