What's in a name?

When Debi and John Murphy decided to re-start their real estate business in Central Florida after moving away for a few years, they spent a lot of time trying to think about the best way to market themselves and to stand out from other real estate companies. When people think of "houses for sale near me," who will come to mind? Should they go back to the good old days and resurrect The Murphy Team monniker? Maybe go with the bland Debi and John Murphy Real Estate Team of Central Florida? Or maybe it was time for something new...

As they were mulling this over, one of their dogs (Stormie) came wandering in to their home-office. Debi said "what about Black Dog Home Team?" 

Stormie has an idea for the name

Well, you can imagine what happened next. Like all great ideas that seem to come out of nowhere, John and Debi sat in silence for a moment. "Does that even make sense? Will people GET it? How do black dogs have anything to do with real estate? Does it seem...cheesy?"

This conversation went on for a couple of days. They reached out to their new brokerage (eXp Realty..who we believe is really the best real estate company to work for) and worked through the legal stuff. They reached out to a good friend for advice on a logo...and finally made a decision.

Vader and Stormie love the name

John and Debi said "Let's do it! Our dogs are part of our family and we want all of our clients to feel like family. If people don't get it or think it is weird...oh well."

So...The Black Dog Home Team of Central Florida brokered by eXp Realty (that's the legal stuff there at the end) was born.

Vader (left side, above picture) is a 6 1/2 year old Lab Mix...she still loves to run around outside but is really good at napping as well. She is named after Debi's favorite Star Wars character.

Stormie just had her 1st birthday...so you can imagine she keeps Vader, and everyone else, very engaged. Her name is a shortened version of Stormtrooper...are you seeing a theme here? LOL

Yes...I am very wise

So...that is the story of how a black dog inspired the name of a real estate team in Central Florida. Thanks for taking a moment to learn about Vader and Stormie and let us know if we can be of service.
