Do you have your name & company plastered all over your car?

I'm re-blogging this featured post for several reasons. First, there was a comment that so distorted the size of the blog it was difficult to read. Now it is easier so others can enjoy it. Second, it received so many comments it is obviously an issue we have all thought about. We all have an opinion on this and mine is if I plaster my name I'll have to behave myself:) Your thoughts.

Original content by Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR

Many times when scheduling an appointment to see a future seller's home they ask me if I have my name and company plastered all over my car.  They don't want their neighbors to know I'm coming to talk with them.  I always answer NO! I DO NOT make my name & company visible on my car.

Sometimes I'm meeting with  clients that want my advice on what projects they should be working on to prepare their home for sale in a year or two.  They want to know where to be investing their dollars and get some enjoyment out of the updates before selling.  From time to time there is a divorce and they don't want the neighborhood to know yet, but need a figure to determine proceeds that will be split.  Every so often someone is considering another job opportunity and wants to see if the numbers work to make a move across the country.

Privacy and confidentiality is often key in my appointments.  Advertising my name on my car could have some benefits,but for me I choose to keep my car from being a moving personalized billboard.

If you do make the decision to place your name and company on your vehicle, please take care to keep your car clean, don't drive in the left hand lane slowing backing up traffice for miles while talking on the phone, run red lights, roll through stop signs,etc.  I'm just saying..........

Personally I don't do that - however - it's a choice - and I don't criticize those who choose to do so.
