Never did, never will.  Especially that tacky gold jacket that Century 21 offered me during the two years I worked with them.  Not happening!

God NO. I used to have signs on my vehicle, name tag, even a cool LED scrolling license plate holder that had phone number on it! (Still have it, not in use)
I found that I got stopped by people wanting to waste my time while I had things to do and places to be.
For a new agent, that would be great . . . but I want to control my intake and time, and I do. Let other people sing my praises.
I do have a vanity plate, but that's it.

Still?  That would imply that I wore them ever.  I've always found that to be tacky.  I do love going up to people with name tags at the market and asking them where I can find something though.  "Oh, I saw a name tag, I thought you worked here."

 

Wrapped or signed cars, just increase your attack surface.  Makes it impossible to blend in if you're ever attacked and need to escape.  Also makes it real easy to be identified if you cut someone off in traffic.  In this day and age of Kancel Kulture Karens, that could unleash a storm on Socialist Media that you don't want.

 

As to company clothing, I have enough clothing of my own, I don't need any more.  Heck, I still have logo'd polos from my first and my last corporate jobs.

I do.  I have shirts with my name on it.  I wear hats all the time with my companies name on it.  They look good and they are great conversation starters.

I never did wear a name tag in public and rarely any other time. 

No signs for my car either.

I have branded Tommy Bahama shirts I wear almost daily. They eliminate the need for a name tag given my name and website are on them.

I only wear my name tag at networking events, not at work.

NO signs on my car, the way I drive, I'd be out of business LOL.

The only time I wear a name tag is when I am hosting an open house. When I went to marketing meetings, I would wear one since those meetings also served as meet-greet events for meeting other agents.

On my car...NO.

I should have some company shirts but I have never sought them out.

I don't wear a name tag, branded shirt, or have a car magnet.  Not my style.  Nor have I ever done business with someone because I saw their car magnet.  Or because I was looking for a plumber and they were wearing a plumber shirt or name tag at the grocery store.

Name tag at open houses or on Broker tour.  Vehicle signs on my car when I hold a house open (so the neighbors get a gentle reminder) but not when I'm doing normal errands (It forces me to be a polite drive.  I hate to be that polite to other motorists!😁😂)

I have a ton of company clothing.  A couple years ago we modernized our apparel to soft, comfortable t-shirts, and nice, name brand jackets.  I never wore the cheap, low quality stuff, but I love our company clothing now and wear it often.

Never did. When I was in law school, attorney's could not advertise or even have their photo on a business card. I went with the flow and never changed. Some of my friends always looked like walking billboards and their cars the same way. Not for me!

I bought a nice hat from my local board of realtors that has the Realtor logo. That is all I do plus I have a really nice business card. The rest is all me being the living advertisement. I tried signs, name tags, gimmicks and have heard of supermarket baskets ads, bus stop & all the rest. One has to experiment, monitor results & decide what to turn up or down. Whatever gets decided upon, keep it real. Some stuff comes across desperate

No name tags.  Nothing on my cars.  I have company logos on some shirts & jackets, mostly when meeting with new clients.  Interesting question and answers.  I wouldn’t buy a shirt with a shoe or clothing company logo on it but I think a 1/4 zip or polo shirt with a small company logo on the front looks good.  Maybe helps turn a casual golf shirt into a “professional” work shirt.
