William Piotrowski First, I NEVER do public Open House events.

And, I DO NOT and NEVER WILL wear a name tag. They're totally unsuited for professionals.

I'm not a dental assistant or a grocery store clerk.

When was the last time you saw your lawyer wearing a name tag?

I rest my case.

Since I don't do open houses, I guess the answer is no. I virtually never wear a name tag! I do know who I am and can find my way home on my own!

Never was a fan of the name tag or photo on my business card. These were things that were never done when I graduated from law school. So no name tag, car signs or my photograph. Not for everyone but just my style!

The only time I wear a name tag is when I do open houses. I find that once I strike up a nice conversation, I will see the prospective home buyer glance at my name tag. It is often a clue to me that they want to remember my name.  I don’t think it hurts, and if it helps great!

Years ago I had a bunch of polo style shirts embroidered with my name over the breast with my brokerage beneath it. No need to wear a badge then. I also always introduce myself, ask the visitors to fill out a questionaire that of course also hads my name & info prodominately featured & give them a handout about the home which also features my info.

Always.  And I introduce myself and write down their names as well.  As I talk to them, I ask for more and more information so that I can send them updates with the market.  It is all about rapport and asking for the business.  I ask for their thoughts on the house and how it compares to others that they have seen in the same area or price range.  Feedback is a great way to serve the seller and give the buyer a voice.
