Yes, I use Homes for Heroes magnetic signs. They are easily removable for those times I'd prefer the incognito method, but I have received questions about the program directly from the signs.

No magnetic signs or plastic signs  can cause damage to the color of your car When I was first in the business I did this and it discolored car door . Therefore I would not recommend --

Plus if your driving angered someone this also would not be wise

Paul,

NEVER EVER WOULD WE DO THAT!  We had a client who bought a SMART car and had it wrapped with her logo and contact info.  She regretted it so much...

That being said, it may work in some areas of our nation.  So I may be wrong here, but I would not do it in any place...A

I used one many many many years ago, until I got road raged by a guy with guns mounted in the back window of his pick-up truck.  I didn't like the idea of him knowing who I was.  I lost him when I pulled into the Police Station.  I removed the signs from my car that day.

Oh no, the last two of these round robins recently on "do you brand your rides" had the sure, yes I do brand my clean professional whatever you drive and then those who said with grey poupon mustard on their mouth corner huffily "Oh, how how ... how you say... so gauche"  and "not me you red neck low life". Marketing, it's all marketing. Unmarked cars, police use 'em to not call attention to the tail to your hideout. Bad driving is a common excuse for no brand or I can see the my seller does not want neighbors gawking over and ta da your car in the driveway. But geesh Louise they're gonna know when it syndicates and listing feeds all over the MLS  sypder populate a slew of portals. Plant a real estate sign is gonna happen here. Get ready. Label your ride and make it tasteful like your ad layout, website design with your colors.  Vinyl not the slip and slide blow off magnetic works best today.

I follow one of my competing realtors all the time who has three signs on her car. She uses two magnetic signs; one on either side, as customary. She then has a plastic window wrap on her rear window that says she is working with a buyer right now please call and make an appointment...  

She takes them off and on week to week and I don't see any damage to the finish of her car...
