I didn't want to write this post, but I felt impelled after meeting an agent earlier this week. When I first saw her website and photo, I remember thinking that she needed to update her hairstyle a little, but she looked very professional. When she walked into my office, I thought she'd sent her mother (who coincidentally had a modern hairstyle).
My point is that she was still an attractive, well presented, professionally appearing Realtor. She just appeared to be a completely different person than who I was expecting. I just don't understand why many Realtors don't update their photos more often; at least every other year.
I guess my point is this: if you look at your professional photo and it looks like the photo to the left, or if in the photo you have roller-coaster bangs and are wearing shoulder pads, you should consider getting an updated photo. I believe our clients are expecting us to look like our picture.
Please feel free to disagree.
