The name of the website is "Real Estate Investor Online", which will later be found at http://www.realestateinvestoronline.com . I want the full name in the logo. In fact, I prefer if the name itself "is" the logo, made in a memorable, easily recognized format.
I am leaning towards a logo that includes text only, not a symbol, icon or picture... and certainly NOT the picture of a house. However, I will consider some small graphic or icon, if it strikes me. Be creative, amaze me. :)
I got the idea from this logo:
I was going to simply have my web designer almost copy that, with "Real Estate" in red and smaller and on top, and "Investor Online" in black and on the bottom, but decided to hold a contest instead. Again, I am open minded and will look at anything.
I would strongly consider options with "www" and ".com" or just "com" in them as well.
I prefer black and reds, but am not open to ideas and suggestions.
The winner will most likely be an easily read logo, where the words themselves make up the majority of the design, with minimum other graphics. Again, small changes will be looked at, but I do not want artwork or icons to be the majority of the logo, with the text/letters underneath or beside it.
