Color brochures. For decades now real estate professional have been creating color brochures for their clients. These brochures for years were sent out by agents to buyers all around the county, hopefully to entice the buyers to come here, look and buy.

Now brochures are generally converted to PDF and emailed to buyer or printed and handed out when the buyer is here looking.
