It was a relationship that the clients and I had mutually ended. We decided to to take it off the market last year because of the forthcoming cold season. It was a seasonal property. Hence, the reason was definitely valid.
When I took the sign off, I also ordered for the yard post removal. This was a glaring sign that I did not expect to list it again nor did I want to relist it when the spring comes.
Just this morning, I got an email from the previous sellers/clients asking if the new agent can use the pictures I took in the past.
It was a mixed of amazed and surprised feeling. First, I was amazed that they do value my pictures and they took the courage to ask for them.
Secondly, I am surprised that the other agent would allow himsellf/herself to utilize other agent's works or masterpiece--for that matter. :)
I am not a professional photographer but I do take time in trying to capture the right angles and features of the properties I list to show them in the best light.
I take pride in what I do and with the results especially if my clients give me nice reviews of the presentation.
If you are the agent who would be using other agent's photos even with the sellers instruction, wouldn't you feel slighted?
Where is the pride in doing so? Each one of us should bear this pride. That good feeling that emanates from toiling hard. That amazing feeling of triumphant and victory for creating the presentation you can brag about.
Our works speak highly of ourselves. Or, conversely. You choose.
