Federal laws and many state laws apply to real estate advertising for agents/brokers. For example, the broker name and fair housing logo must be included, and have display guidelines. I would wait until you have your license to get cards so you don't have to reprint everything. Broker's often offer sign-on bonuses like free or discounted business cards. Good luck!
You may need 2 cards. If you work for a brokerage, they will have a templated card that they want you to use for your retail business.
As far as your investor business, don't put wholesaler because you never know who is going to call and some properties won't work for wholesale.
Pick a name that is easy to spell, no numbers because you will always be asked - is it the number or do we spell it out? - and that gets annoying... Shorter is better for people to spell. And make sure the company name is available through your Secretary of State and that the same name is available to use for your website.
Don't overthink it. Only you and your mother will remember your company name. People don't care what your business is called - they only care about what you can do for them.
