Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Texas Real Estate License Plates

Texas Real Estate License Plates

Texas REALTOR License Plate

These brand new license plates are now being offered in Texas for $30 (in addition to regular registration fees).  I'm definitely getting one.  However, for another $40, you can customize the 5 letters. 

I need help trying to figure out something catchy that wouldn't already be taken. I assume REL8R is already taken, though I'll still try for it.  Does anyone have any other ideas for 5 letters relating to real estate??

Thanks Nima!  I'm assuming all the obvious ones are taken since we're talking about the entire state of Texas.  The 5 letters aren't just for this special plate as it still can't duplicate any other specialty plate out there.  I still have these to check out though.

Oh so it doesn't have to be 5 letters/numbers in total?

I have a special plate on one of my cars, its: REZ (the first three letters of my last name and was my nickname with friends, etc.)

I am looking to get NIMA soon!  I also want to get magnetic signs, one for each side of my car!

Spell house backwards?  ESUOH ?  ROTLAER ?  That might be a tough one. 

 

I wonder what Florida has to offer.  I was thinking of picking a zip code.

Posted by Chris Griffith, Bonita Springs Listing Agent (Downing-Frye Realty, Bonita Springs, FL) over 11 years ago

Nima, Yes, 5 letters or less.  With the TAR logo, there is no room for more than 5 letters.

Chris-Elizabeth, I thought about a zip code, but I would hate for people to think I work exclusively in that one zip code.  My city alone has 3 zips.  The city of the school district I'm in has about 9 zips...

It's going to take some thought.  House backwards sound intriging... though Homes backwards looks more appealing at SEMOH...

I vote for HOMES backwards!  We got a possible winner!

I started filling out the forms, and I have to submit 3 choices if I want the specialized plates... I need more suggestions people... PLEASE!!

By the way, $22 of the $30 fee goes to promote and support affordable housing programs in Texas.

Donna, How would you like to be : RE 007 (Real Estate James Bond kind)?

 How about SEL4U. You can send me my reward for a winning  name in a small paper bag; small bills only please.
Posted by David Spencer, Show Me real estate in Kansas City (Keller Williams Northland) over 11 years ago

Margaret, nice plates!  Now that I have the name Harris, it's too common to be able to use it.... Richey might have worked a couple of years ago.

Eli and David, very good suggestions.  They are on the list. 

Anyone else?

That is so cool that TX does that!  How about RE4U2

How about SLLEM (sell 'em-kinda like hook 'em)?  i love the look of that plate!  wish we had them in NC.
Posted by Leigh Brown, CEO, Dream Maker - Charlotte, NC (Leigh Brown & Associates, RE/MAX Executive) over 11 years ago

While driving around from appt to appt the last couple of hours, I've been thinking of others and wanted your opinion. I like the SLLEM from Leigh, however, I was thinking SELLM, since the letter M would do the same thing as EM.  Or even just SEL M.  We're allowed to put a space in there, or even the small texas logo.  With a sharpie I could put the ` mark.

Or, how about SELIN (selling), BUYIN or BYING (buying).

I think I'm leaning towards BUYIN... but it's probably taken.

Posted by Donna Harris, Realtor,Mediator,Ombudsman,Property Tax Arbitrator (Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - TexasRealEstateMediationServices.com) over 11 years ago
I vote for HOMES (Nima commented before I could) , then RE007
Posted by Sharon Simms, St. Petersburg FL - CRS CIPS CLHMS RSPS (Coastal Properties Group International - Christie's International) over 11 years ago
Thank you Sharon...and the "winner" is...?
Posted by Eli Magen (New World Mortgages,(Mortgage Company)) over 11 years ago

And the winners are:

HOMES; RE007; BUYIN

I'm assuming HOMES is already taken.  My husband really liked the RE007 but thinks because there's no space between the RE and the 007, that most people won't get it.  And I like BUYIN because it looks better than SELEM, again because you need a space between the SEL and the EM for it to make sense.

I'll take a picture and post when I get the plates!!  I'm sure it'll be a couple of weeks.

I Chose BUYIN for the plates.  I called the state to see which words were available, and as I had assumed, most were.  As of now, BUYIN is still available.  I forgot to ask her about SELL* where the * is the little picture of Texas so I put that as choice 2 and did not put a third choice.  RE007 could not be used because it violated the rules.  You cannot have 3 numbers in a row along with letters as they say it's too close to regular plates.

Donna, good choice...enjoy it. PS,  I could never understand some "rules", this in regard to the 3 numbers in a row 'rule'...
Posted by Eli Magen (New World Mortgages,(Mortgage Company)) over 11 years ago

Donna, Was driving down the road tonight and was thinking about your plates.

Did you check to see if  "LIST M" was a choice?

Posted by Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400) over 11 years ago

Margaret, I decided using the ones ending in M wouldn't make sense to most people because there wouldn't be a space allowed between the word and the M for them to think to read it separately. 

I'm really excited about the BUYIN and can't wait to see it in print!

Donna, They look great!!! Now if you could find a plate holder with your website...see mine above. It makes for great marketing!
Posted by Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400) over 11 years ago

Margaret, the problem with plate holders in Texas is that there is a new law (almost 2 years old) that says if any part of the word "Texas" is covered, you can get a ticket.  Too many vanity plates have obstructed views of the plates, so now there's a law.  It's hard to find ones with the very thin top... but then it would also cover up the "Working for you" on the bottom of the plate, but I definitely understand your point, as I've looking into them in the past.

I'll keep looking!
