Default Slogan Wanted: $50 if I use yours..

I am in the process of having 4 bus benches done up. I will start with 4 and see if it is really worth it.
IMO, the thing that can make or break this form of advertising is the creativity o the bench itself.

I am looking for a slogan with no more than 7/8 words that is somewhat aggressive, catchy etc.

Would you have "Member of The Top Ten Club" anywhere on the bench or do you as possible clients not care about that achievement?

A friend mentioned "Talk Is Cheap, Results Are Everything". This seemed to aggressive and maybe a bit arrogant.

If anyone comes up with something I use for design or slogan I will be glad to send $50 your way for your creativity.

How about "There IS a difference" or "When a positive experience matters call Travis"

I would say use Top Ten...it confers a sense of accomplishment

TBH I like the second one but it might be because there are only 2 too choose from right now and others slogans always sound better than my own.

Does the average home buyer know what the top 10 club is?

I guess the biggest question is what do you do different than any (or most) other realtors? Your slogan should reflect that, and not be a run of the mill slogan that any realtor could use.

Clients don't care that your top 10, thats a sales accomplishment, not a service accomplishment.

How about

The quickest trip to your new home.

If you were a texas highschool football player

Take it to the house.

My take on the "Top Ten" thing. It seems like all Real Estate places have these accomplishments that realtors put on all their cards/advertising (not too mention it seems like they just give these things away like candy):

-Million Dollar Club
-Top Ten
-Platinum
-Top Team
-Super Duper Awesome Real Estate Selling Person

I could care less about that, it just seems more like an ego thing to use at the annual realtors convention than anything that would ever sway my opinion when looking for a realtor.

Total aside, why do the big companies take out FULL 2 page ads in the Herald every now and then to announce these winners (Remax as one example)? What's the point?

Quoted for truth. $50 for a published slogan that will earn the op the kind of money he makes is a kick in the nuts. Seriously.

When I see Top 10 or Million dollar platinum this or that, I go to "To busy to actually help me." Just my opinion, but I wouldn't put it on the bench.

Something like:

When Quality Matters
or
Getting you the best deal
or
The Experience that counts

Basically, what feature about yourself do you want to emphasize, why should someone choose you.

Plenty More Wong


Really though, no top 10. That means nothing to an outsider. Not only do I not know what designation that is, I also don't know if its one of a thousand different types of recognition out there.
