    Question The Best Car for Real Estate!

    I just want to know what everyone here uses to show property? Is a sports car look good to follow or is a SUV better to haul the clients around?
    Thanks,

    Whenever I think of Realtors, I always picture them in either a Hummer, or a nice roomy sedan (Dodge Intrepid for example a few years ago - dunno what the equivilent would be today).

    I always picture an SUV. I know that's what the realtor my parents were working with used anyway. Like a ford escort or a chevy trailblazer.

    No way, but at least you look cool. That's what is really important.

    Here's my new car:

    Money Magazine says that Orland Park real estate is one of the best places to live in the U.S. Check out Homer Glen homes if you're interested in living in the newest Chicago suburb. Next door, Lemont homes are the priciest in the southwest suburbs and have held their value, even appreciating while prices in other areas have gone down.

    Sweet car Judyo. I bit the bullet and bought a slightly used more expensive car. Image does matter in this business, especially when you are working with alot of 2nd home buyers. I got a vibe like they trusted and respected me more with the higher end car.

    In my area I've actually heard clients talk down about the expensive cars some agents drive. Several have said things like, "They're flaunting what our dollars are buying for them." I've heard it a lot. We're a more affordable area of Chicago and suburbs. The area you work in does make a difference.

    I might be taking a chance with my orange HHR Woody; it's not expensive, just very noticeable. My husband, who started this whole HHR thing, now says that when he looks at it he expects a bunch of clowns to come out of it. Well, just one (or more, depending on how many of my friends & family are in it). I do have my charcoal grey sedan for those times I don't want to take the chance. But the HHR is definitely "me."

    I agree that an expensive car work against you. I think it just depends on what segment of the market you are going after. You just can't make everyone happy. If you drive a ritzy car someone won't like it. You are flaunting money. If you drive a modest car someone might question your success and knowledge.
