I share my real estate practice with another broker and want to brand ourselves. I am Latin with various professional degrees (Architect, BA Business). She is Anglo saxon. We are both 50+, Brokers, hold FRI designation (Fellow of Real Estate Institute), 50+ years combined residential real estate experience. We offer a very professional approach assisting clients in their lifestyle changes associated with their real estate needs. We focus on service and not on a transaction. As our names do not seem to rhyme or go together (Alex Pino & Veronica Lord) we thought having a Latin word to describe what we do, could help. Something like “Integritas”. We also tell our clients they get 2 for the price of 1 as we have different strengths. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Jay’s Answer: “Very professional approach” and “service, not a transaction” are phrases I often hear from Realtors. It doesn’t make you different. Your racial background isn’t important either. Neither are your various professional degrees. What is important is knowing that you get the best deals for clients quickly and perhaps specializing in a specific niche like no other team (empty nesters or LEED-certified buildings, etc.). For such an important transaction in people’s lives, cute isn’t really appropriate. What truly distinguishes you two from all the other teams in your area?
Hello, first i would like to say thank you taking the time to read this. I have been pulling out my hair trying to figure out a creative business name. I really could use some help. I am starting a non profit org that will financially helps out anyone with any type of cancer. And i want the name to say it all. I want people to hear the name and know exactly what I’m all about. I really wanted to have a ribbon with all the cancer colors in it, but thought people would confuse that with Gay pride. I like the name “Rainbow of Hope” but it is already taken, so any help with a name and slogan would be appreciated. Thanks
Jay’s Answer: How about “Cancer $care”? It allows you to play off the emotion of having cancer and the benefit you provide.
I need a catchy name for an enewsletter I am creating. My company is a manufacturer of vinly windows and doors.

Hi there! I’m a new realtor and I need a tagline. I’ll be working for Rise Real Estate and my name is Kate Smith. I’m looking for something a little more than “God Bless America” as I get that all the time from the singer Kate Smith. I’ll be working for a new construction builder. Thanks so much in advance.

After many years as a psychotherapist, consultant and trainer in the UK I am starting a personal development
and continuing education venture in Sardinia (Mediterranean island) which combines learning and vacation and is aimed at English speakers. I am looking for a name which conveys a sense of learning, space and depth and reflects the beauty of the natural surroundings (sea, river, valley, sun, rocky wild nature and ancient culture).
In terms of names, I have come up with hundreds, within three categories – poetic (eg Where the Sky Meets the Sea),
place specific (eg The Sardinia Centre), and vaguely dynamic (eg Ideas in Development). But nothing has as yet seemed right.
Jay’s Answer: The reason that none of these resonate for you is none of these share a benefit of your business with your clientele. The reason people would come is for personal growth with a bonus of a beautiful backdrop/vacation. But ultimately, you’re offering a transformative space for adults to work on their “issues”. Of the names you’ve come up with, “Sardinia Centre” is the closest to the benefit, but the other two are too vague to be useful for marketing’s sake, especially since you’re selling something that’s a bit different from the normal fare.
Here are some names to consider:
- The Sardinia Experience – combining location + the “process”
- Your Next Chapter: Sardinia – combining growth + location (with possibility of branding to other locations)
Perdido Bay Youth Sports Association is a 501 (c) 3, 30+ year old organization. It is getting a major overhaul. A new sports-plex is about to be completed to accommodate the organization’s growing needs, a new, custom website is to be made (current is terrible – www.pbysa.org), etc… Attracting people from out of town to come to the new sports-plex and play in one of the many tournaments to be held there is an absolute must! Without these people coming to their tournaments they will not be able to afford maintenance on the new sportsplex. They need a tagline that is catchy and lets everyone know that if they come play ball at the new Perdido Sports-plex they will also get a beach vacation out of the trip. Panama City is a few hours away and they already use “Play Ball in Paradise”. It’s even their website address. They have been very successful! Perdido needs something like that. Perdido has beautiful white sand beaches and the US Museum of Naval Aviation, the 2 top reasons why people come to our area (near Pensacola). We are less of a party hard/spring break-ish type place – more family friendly. We want to stress that we are at the beach so coming here means coming to the beach, sun, sand, ocean, etc…. The ballpark is minutes away from it. We just can’t think of anything other than “Play Ball at the Beach”. Tournaments will attract the same type of people the area tourism initiatives hope to attract – families with enough disposable income to travel all over with their kids playing travel/tournament ball. They will be very important and we need to do our best to get people’s attention. We would appreciate your help! If you want to see our area you can look at www.visitperdido.com and www.perdidochamber.com. Help us come up with something better than Panama City’s “play ball in paradise”.

I am starting a dog training company that offers traditional obedience classes but will also offer exercise programs to enhance and maintain the health, well-being and fitness level of dogs throughout their life. Workout routines coupled with obedience training for overweight dogs, senior dogs, family pets, conformation show dogs, obedience champs,high-in-trial performance dogs, behavioral problems or hyperactive dogs, rehabilitation or just general conditioning and fun that will strengthen the dog as well as the bond between dog and owner. I am an exercise physiologist with a Master of Science degree and will soon have a Dog Training Certification. I am trying to think of a catchy name and phrase for this company as well as a name for the website. Some names that have been used by other companies include Pup N’ Iron, Fit Fur Life, Iron Dog Fitness.

I am on the Board of Directors for Russian River Valley Winegrowers, a non-profit organization that markets and promotes the Russian River Valley wine region in Sonoma County. We are planning a very high end event and are having trouble coming up with a name and defines the event. The event is a full weekend of wine dinners, seminars, a Paulee event and ending with a Pinot Noir barrel auction, dinner and live music. We would like the name to represent the past, present and future of Pinot Noir in Russian River Valley, but also touch on the exclusivity of the event (only 300 tickets to be sold for the auction event) and create buzz on the scarcity of the tickets.
- Pinot: Past, Present, Future
- Russian River Pinot Insiders
- RRPP: Russian River Pinot Party
The relevancy of our previous slogan (“Blending into the holiday background for over 2,000 years. Doing something about it since September.”) is about to expire and our young and unique organization requires a new one. Something catchy, fun and clever – just like our members. There are a few suggestions from within our community on our website, but we’d like to round out the number with a couple of other quality lines before voting. Any help is much appreciated.
