Yes, I do have them on my for sale signs and have for years and years. People all over town recognize me from those signs, often stop me in a supermarket and engage me and introduce themselves, etc. I meet all sorts of people I wouldn't otherwise and I also come across people in social settings all the time who insist they know me (actually they just see my signs and feel like they know me).

No, I just don't see the point of it. I'm trying to sell the house; not trying to sell the way I look. And Realtors have to be careful about advertising yourself and the wrong person likes the way you look and wants to "meet you to see the house". Lots of people do put their picture out; I just never understood it really.

Providing the integrity and service you deserve.

I do not and it's for safety reasons mainly and because I don't want the buy new signs because I'm now a few years older or I changed my hair style. Regarding the safety issue, I do not have a common name. Stavrula is a Greek name and unless someone is Greek or happens to be familiar with the name, most people would not nessessarily recognize it as a female name along with the fact the most non-Greek people call me Sam. Given those two facotrs, it's unlikely that someone would target me as a female if my sign is in front of a vacant house.
