I have not and would not.  I have always believed in branding in real estate specific ways.  Just as I would never give a set of steak knives, or wine bottle opener, I would not give a face mask.  Besides being non-real estate related, it is a product born out of fear.  Keep it positive.

I have not seen them no. I would give them to clients for a laugh I suppose, but my worry about anything COVID related like that is liability "if the mask didn't work". LOL. Ahhh CA, you have made me litigation paranoid.

I have not, mainly because of the lack of inventory for those masks.  I do fully expect a line of title company branded masks and gloves to go with the existing shoe covers.

I have not seen them.  But I would worry that if I handed someone a branded face mask and they got sick even when using it, I could be held liable.  Better to provide give aways that can't come back and bite you in the future.

I can see some advertised on my Facebook view. I don't like the idea. I hope we will never be in a world to give that mask as a give-away.

Just no.  That's dreadful.  I do have some that I will ask clients to wear if they do not have their own (surgical, disposable) if they are looking at a home for the foreseeable future, but nothing branded.

Never a branded mask but I have seen some that are cute with red lips but my favorite is the clear one that you can see the full face.

No, I am not seeing them, and would not order nor wear. If someone is close enough to read the real estate brand, they're too close.

I did see some face masks this morning (I just tried to find them again and can't) that looked like huge dog snouts. So if you wear it, you'd look like a dog. Hahaha. I got a kick out of that.

At press conferences, our Mayor has been wearing a cloth mask that is branded with the city logo.  The Sheriff has one with the Sheriff Department logo.

Presumably, someone who sews took a hankerchief or other piece of fabric with the logos and made them for these two politicians.

I assume these are the only two masks that look like this.  They are not giving them out to residents or customers.

I haven't seen those and I wouldn't use or give them to clients. It's like slapping a sign on the side of your car... except now you are doing it to your "person." Totally tacky. Besides, what's the purpose of tying in a pandemic of this proportion with my brand/business?

I have seen several. Once again I ask myself “why didn’t I think of that?”

I think it is a great idea. Let people advertise your business everywhere they go. Just make sure your name is spelled correctly.

Branded hats or shirts may be a better idea.

The tought of making masks has crossed my mind, especially since my clients are 55+ but if I decide to make a few, they will not be branded and a disclaimer will accompany them. Since all of Los Angeles County are asking everyone to wear a mask, I thought is was a good idea but now, I'm not sure...

 A face mask embellished with
"my Super Power is NURSE"  with sponsor much less conspicuous would be awesome.

"My Super Power is TEACHING" 

"My Super Power is TRASH PICK UP"

The list is limited only by small minds.
