Whether you specialize in helping individuals find homes that are suitable for their families, or help homeowners sell their current dwellings, you may have your business card designed in the shape of a miniature “For Sale” or “Sold” sign. Fashion the sign to look similar to the signs your company uses on the front lawn of properties you’re trying to sell. Include a message such as “I’ve got what it takes to successfully sell your home” or “Let me help you find your dream home.”

If you help clients find homes in specific neighborhoods, towns or cities, include a picture of a popular landmark in the area your primarily serve. Your potential clients will immediately notice your connection to the area, and if it’s a place they would like to call “home,” your business card could be a conversation starter.

Along with the logo, use the company slogan or a sales figure that shows how much business that company has done in the past year.
