      Try and get away from the house/roof idea. A more cliché idea doesn't exist when it comes to real estate logos and the use of the M for the roof is about as obvious as you could get and not very creative IMO.

        Hmm he's right. I just liked the sketchy look. Just keep playing with the Ms and sonethin may pop. I'll think of a few other ideas..

          I can't think of anything more obvious for a real estate logo than a house/roof picture. Some more ideas? Anything witty to do with their specific company?

          Also, are you a designer or a real estate agent?

            I like the one with the chimney. Roofs may be cliche, but if it's a fresh take on the idea, then go for it.

              I agree. Whether we like it or not the "roof' graphic for residential real estate has become like the three balls for the pawn shop.

                Really? Three balls means pawn shop? I didn't know that.

                Oh cool, I just Googled it and found an explanation on Wikipedia.

                I find the history of symbols interesting.

                  If I was moving to Maine I would like to see a logo that represented Maine, not an M that represented the word Maine.

                    Sure, you could go that route, but what if you had lived in Maine your whole life and were sick of all of those things, and the sight of the stereotypically Maine logo irritated you so much that you decided to just pull up stakes and leave the state. What about THAT?

                        It could happen.

                          I should say that the Logos for real estate usually seem based on market.

                          Around here, the high-end real estate often has logo/icons that have little to do with houses.

                          One uses a whale, another uses a trotting horse, etc.

                          The mid-level stuff usually uses a house.

                            Not ever heard of someone moving because they didn't like a real estates sign or logo?

                            And if they were sick of Maine then the company would be perfect for them to attract people to Maine to buy the house they hate.

                            It all works out in the end
