QR Codes - are you using them?

I have just returned from a fantastic vacation tri to the USA, staying in Memphis (Elvis is alive and well), New York City and Beverley Hills, CA. I saw this brokers window in Greenwich Village area and noticed they used QR codes for all their properties in their window display and wondered if anyone else was using QR Codes and what was the response from customers? Not all brokerages have window displays so perhaps you are using them in marketing handouts or advertisments in the paper? They are not widely used in Australia, so I just wanted to get a sense of whether they have taken off in the US or not, yet?

QR codes on my signs, back of my cars, office door AND my e-mail signature....code is to my website, not to a specific listing....TCB!

Geoff,

We are placing QR codes on all our signs and some of our unique "riders." So far direct phone calls from high traffic properties out number the clicks on the QR codes. I believe it's just a matter of time.

Got 'em on signs and some flyers.  QR's link to a service that emails me.  So far no one in the public uses them as far as I can tell.....

Hi Geoff-

Yes sir QR codes are here and here to stay!  I find myself constantly whipping out my phone to check them out.  I utilize them on all my marketing .... well I still have to figure out how I want them on my yard signs.  But they are everywhere here being used in every fashion one can think of.  Stand out from the crowd, be the leader of your pack by building you a QR Code!

Best regards from Albuquerque NM
