i am a 37 year old male, i live in Houston, TX. I have been a Realtor, or Real Estate Agent for 10 years. I had a logo made for me about 7 years ago, and i am still using it, but the picture is outdated and I feel like I want something new. I like to advertise in local neighborhood newsletters, and I do post card mail outs to neighborhoods, and I get give away items, like pads of paper and coozies, that i like to put my logo on. I am pretty outgoing person, but i have never been one to be too flashy or tacky when it comes to promoting myself. I wear a suit to work everyday, with a pair of comboy boots. The reason i metion this, is because, i like to look like a serious businessman, but I like to feel like a good ole boy as well. I like to Hunt and Fish, but i am not really a country redneck. I want my logo to convey that I am experienced, serious, classy, gentleman, friendly, smart,approachable. I want the logo to be able to be used on stationary, note cards, coozies, pads of paper. I basically want something that i can use on everything. when people see it they know that it is me.
my target audience is homeowners in Houston, TX. also people wanting to buy and sell homes in houston. age range of my clients is 30 to 50 yrs old on average. The average price of the homes i sell is about $250,000 to $300,000. I currently market on a regulat basis to about 250 contacts in my database, these are people that i know, and i market to a neighborhood of about 860 homes, called shadowlake, and i am beginning to market a new neighborhood in katy texas, called seven meadows. This is a very suburban area, and the demographic is 95% caucasion, and politically conservative
I would like to see some designs that are full color, and some that are just two or three color. I do alot of Black and White printing. so i would use the logo in color advertising as well as black and white. in my original logo, i had a picture of me. this logo i want to stand alone without my picture. I like the idea of using my initials, GH. I am also the 3rd. meaning my name is George G. Huntoon III, so maybe some play off of that. I have envisioned the outline of the state of texas with my initials inside, but that may be too cliche. I also have used my family crest before on some things. I work for RE/MAX and our company colors are Red, White, and Blue. the logo does not neccesarily need to be these colors, but just so you know. I like colors like, beige and forest green, as well as navy blue, and I like Red and Black combo as well. I am pretty open to anything. I just want help from a designer with something new.
I am attaching my current real estate logo, as well as a logo i used in a recent campaign when i ran for public office.
