Top Promotional Items for Ambitious Realtors

Quality Logo Products is proud to provide hard working people with not just awesome customer service, but also great custom promotional products for their business. Realtors are some of the hardest working people in our recession right now. The housing market is not currently in the sellers’ favor, but it’s a great time to buy. Mortgage rates and house/property prices are at an all-time low, and that means more bang for your buck! Having the right realtor at your side will ensure you get a great house at a great price.

To give dedicated realtors an edge on the competition, I have put together a list of the BEST promotional products for realtors and brokers!

House-Shaped Magnets

Business cards are great, but magnetic business cards are even better! Give your potential clients a house-shaped magnet with all your contact information. They are ideal for decorating your fridge and they can spruce up any boring file cabinet. Or, give away a calendar magnet and they are sure to see your logo every day when they check future dates!

T-Shirts and Clothing

Everyone loves a free shirt (I know I do). Give away t-shirts with your name, contact information, and an eye-catching graphic. What could be better than a walking advertisement? Whether you prefer long sleeves, short sleeves, or no sleeves at all, there’s something to fit each unique client on your list. I’ve included some of my favorites below, including a baby bib. It’s not exactly a t-shirt, but it would be a shame to leave out the littlest members of the family!

Personalized Pens

I have about six pens in my purse right now, and maybe another five in my car. But for some reason, I can never find one when I need one. That’s why pens are consistently popular promotional products…because we always need them. I like the Raptor Pen (pictured below on the far left) because it comes in subtle-but-pretty colors and it writes beautifully. If you give someone a classy pen like that, they will be sure to remember you. Or, go with the Bic WideBody Message Pen (pictured below on the far right) for maximum impact — you can personalize up to 6 different messages! Click pens, stick pens, and twist pens don’t vary much in price, but choosing the right one depends on your writing preference.

Key Chains

After you’ve sold someone their dream home, hand them their new house keys with a beautiful engraved key chain attached to it. Homeowners will love the gesture and pass on the good word to their friends and family about how helpful you were in finding their new place! We have a variety of metal house key chains, but I like the House Keytags (pictured below on the far left) the best. It’s simply elegant. If metal isn’t your thing, then you could go with a House-Shaped Measuring Tape Keychain (second from left) or even a stress ball house key chain (middle)!

——-——–—– —-—–

Tumblers

When you’re selling someone’s house, it’s always pleasant to have a nice hot pot of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate for your potential buyers during the open house. Give them a Color Touch Stainless Tumbler (pictured on the far left) for the hot beverage and maybe they will use your services to buy or sell a house in the future. In the warm summer months, have lemonade or iced tea ready with a Varsity Acrylic Tumbler with Straw (second from the left). There are tons of travel tumbler options!

Home and Office Products

Want to show off your creativity even more? Many home and office products could be easily targeted toward new homebuyers or interested investors. For one, give your potential customers a house-shaped bank (pictured on the far left below) to save up for their down payment on a house. When they put money in the bank and see your logo, it will inspire them to give you a call when they are ready to take the big step into home ownership! Or, mints, stress balls, bag clips, and mouse pads are other cool house-related promo items worth looking into.

——-——–—– —-—–
All of these promo items are sure to impress anyone looking for a realtor to help them in the search to find a new home. Remember to include your company’s name, your name, phone number, e-mail address, and other vital information when designing your promotional products. Leave no doubt in their minds about how they can reach you! And furthermore, make sure you’re being patient with first-time homebuyers when they come around. Your extra effort will make all the difference in the world to them.

    I love the house-shaped bank! You’re absolutely right, it would be great for potential home buyers to have to visualize saving toward a home. Talk about the brand impressions a realtor would get!

    I’d also suggest the House Shaped Note Holder. It’s cute, quirky, and a great way to hold your business card or other important information! Your customers would use it all the time!

    • Jen

      I love your suggestion Mandy, that house Shaped Note Holder is a great idea! When a client buys a home it would be great for them to keep random household business cards like repair men or cleaning companies in it.

    The metal house key tag that you loved is one that I really like too! Even though I’ve never purchased a home before, I’d love to receive my shiny new house keys with that key chain :) I feel like it’s almost a rite of passage hahaha

    Great suggestions, Jen!

  3. Rachel

    So many great suggestions! I think my favorites are the key chains (especially the stress ball one) and the calendar magnets. Calendars are always useful, particularly when they can be stuck up on the fridge or on a metal file drawer. You’ve mentioned lots of neat ideas here — I’d like any of these products while hunting for a house or apartment. :) Thanks, Jen!

    • Jen

      Yes! I love calendar magnets, they’re so convenient. I think they are a great advertising tool, that is often over looked.

    How cute are those little house keychains?!? Wish my realtor had given me one of those when I bought my house last year. The spinning ones are cool, too.

    A lot of realtors give away promos to brand-new customers who contact them about a home, and I think that’s an excellent way to build a personal brand. Wouldn’t you be more likely to remember an agent who gave you a tote bag or a house magnet clip? I know I would.

    Nice suggestions! :)

    • Jen

      I would certainly remember a realtor if they gave me a key chain, tote bag, or travel mug!

  5. Jeff Porretto

    My realtor STILL sends me promo calendars, magnets, and other promo items in the mail every year. And guess what? It works! I refer her to everyone! I think I’ve gotten her 3 deals just myself.

    Thanks Jen!

    Tote bags would come very much in handy for prospective homeowners as far as all the papers, pamphlets, brochures, and all that are concerned. Keep ‘em organized, and when you go out house hunting, you can scoop the bag right up and take it along! Great post, Jen.
