We are a new independently owned and operated boutique brokerage in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and we need a logo for business cards, our website, social media, real estate signs (think for sale signs on a house lawn) and other communication tools.
We are different than old school/established brokerages such as ReMax, Century21, Keller Williams, Coldwell Banker, Sotheby's, etc,...
More importantly, we need to be able to differentiate ourselves from other boutique real estate brokerages in Toronto, such as Brad J. Lamb Realty (torontocondos.com), theredpin (theredpin.com), Realosophy (realosophy.com), Signature Realty/GMAC Real Estate (talkcondo.com), and a popular source of new construction condo information BuzzBuzzHome (buzzbuzzhome.com).
Our tagline is "live your lifestyle" and we want to differentiate and come across as professional, hip, fresh, urban, and cool.

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
We like text + image.
We are inspired by the previous Starbuck's logo. Starbuck's is all about lifestyle. We like the white background, deep colors, the stubby font, and modern look.
The colours that we would like are deep blues (e.g., hex #00055C) and deep browns (e.g., hex #68280B). I am not a graphic designer but I wanted to see what a Starbuck's inspired logo could look like - see attached.
What we don't like this execution are the slanted font, and we are not married to the building silhouettes - we like the idea of using silhouettes, and we would want to make sure three building types are represented, i.e., houses, condos, and apartment complex or office tower.
We think it does not have to be so much a copy of the Starbuck's logo and we think it could look alot more sophisticated - that would be ideal.
