Our clients here at Icenhower Coaching and Consulting have been inspiring us daily with what they are doing in their communities. These real estate branding ideas are original, and so creative. My wife, Robyn Icenhower, and her team found a way to inspire their city, give back to the community, and market their services — all at the same time. Through posting inspirational signage around the neighborhoods in Visalia, California, a local news outlet took notice.
As of April 29, Robyn and her team had distributed over 1,500 signs throughout Visalia. Beyond sharing photos of these signs in yards across social media, Robyn’s team also created a marketing video. They shared this video on social media, reaching an even greater audience.

Other ways to use branded yard signs
Yard signs seem to be one of the most popular branding ideas for real estate teams lately. Another way to use yard signs is to show support and appreciation for local graduating high school seniors. ICC clients the More Team of Nevada, Iowa, posted these congratulatory signs across their community. Combining this with a simple social media post is a great branding tactic.
ICC coach Cami Savage applied the yard sign idea with her clients by supporting local mothers on Mother’s Day. “Voted Best Mom on the Block” and “Happy Mother’s Day!” messages provided Cami with a simple way to reach out to her community. Celebrating holidays is different with stay at home orders still in place. Realtors are presented with this opportunity to celebrate community members in new, unique ways.
