Personally, I think mouse pads would be HUGE. For what it’s worth, between the time you order them and start handing them out, I’d put yourself in front of as many realtors as possible, as many times as possible, so the gift has a bit of meaning and relevance attached to it. Meet and greet is powerful, if you ask me. I’ve had many, many realtors tell me that if I plan to distribute brochures, to just skip the middle man and put them in recycling. I’ve never used them.
As for B-ham, this is truly an incredible and exciting place. The real estate climate aside, it's got to be the best outdoor lover's haven in the world. In less than two minutes, I can be in my kayak or sailboat, on a top-notch 18 hole course, riding technical single track, hiking my dog off leash in the wilderness, wakeboarding, skateboarding, road biking, at a baseball diamond, basketball or tennis court, photographing bald eagles, blah blah blah. Or, I can drive fifteen minutes and be in the heart of downtown B-ham and at Western Washington University. It is truly the epicenter of adventure.
Best of luck with the marketing.
