Logo should keep general feel of previous logo.
The red, white and blue are important and colors reflecting that should be used, but can be adjusted to make a more modern look.
The logo should include boxing gloves. The gloves attached were actually used in a fight with the 4th ranked boxer of the world. This symbolism is important. The trainer would always tell him "Let's go lace um up." This is a strong motivation of the company, to lace them up for their clients.
The tagline of the logo should be something along the lines of "Real Estate Agents that Fight for You."
One of the problems with the current logo and tagline is it did not reflect real estate in anyway. We would like to have a customer to know we are a real estate company.
Be creative and we are anxious to see your designs!
