Unless you are artistic Gary I think you are going to have to spend some money on a graphic designer. This is an important part of you business. I did, I don't want to post my logo on your Q&A unless you say it is ok but I paid for it.

A logo is generally a graphic representation of your company that you would use for branding.  You'd want to make sure it is used uniformly throughout all of your marketing and really speaks to the consumer about who you are, what you represent.

Gary,

Ideas abound, the key is to find the right one that fits you and your marketplace, and a graphic designer designs what you tell them you want.  If you want it done right, you need to get a brand, a strategy, and then a logo follows.  What is right for one place or one person is terrible for another.

I need to create a new logo so it will be interesting to read the rest of the comments here. Currently, mine is the RE/MAX Green logo. but I'm looking to create a new one.   You have to have one of the 2 green designations to use it and I have both.  I'd like to create something unique though.  Good luck with your creation!RE/MAX Green

Hello Gary.  I wanted a brand and did not want to spend the big advertising dollars to make one up.  I went to 'Fiverr'.  There are a large # of artists designers that will give you great ideas and mock ups for only $5.  Cheap way to get some ideas on which way to head.  Maybe save you some set up money or actually be happy with end result.  The MDM between FOR SALE AND PHONE # is what I had designed for $5.  Not great but certainly not bad either.  I use it as my branding on everything.  Fiverr

Generally a logo is a stand alone item and neither contains your website nor your tagline.  (Just search around on the internet for brand logos as well as real estate logos.

I agree w/ Noah Seidenberg to pay a professional to do this. I did that for mine.  You'll want to be clear on what it is you want to communicate (i.e. write a brief).

I have had a couple different logos. The first is when I live in Roanoke, Va, and I had a drawing of the downtown buildingscape. Now I have one in which I live in Durham, NC, "Bull City," and I have a motif of that nature.
