Congratulations! You've started a real estate business, and you're building up your clientele. It can be challenging to get your name out there, and you never know when you'll meet a potential client. You could be hosting an open house, or just casually chatting with someone in line at your local coffee shop.

So, how do you get your name out there? Make sure you have business cards with you. They're an easy and effective way to share your contact information and grow your business.

And if you've established a small group of clients, referrals are key to gaining more business. A study by the National Association of Realtors found that 89% of home buyers would use their agent again or recommend their agent to others. Wouldn't it be great if they had your business card to share with potential referrals?

Take a look at the business card designs below to get inspiration for your own business card.
