South Austin Mural Home

Real Estate Agent with E*Rae Realty 651873

October Contest- Real Estate- Exterior

I would like to start out by acknowledging I never photograph my own listings.  While I may be quite talented with my iphone, there is simply no comparison to great professional photographs from someone who snaps home pics for a living all day every day.  I would be doing my clients a disservice by not including proffessional photography with my listing services.  That being said, I do try to capture real estate related photos for my own marketing and branding purposes as often as possible.  


One day, I was driving around near the intersection of Ben White and Manchaca in South Austin.  I drove past this home, and thought, "wow what's that!"  I immediately began reversing, and then stopped my car to get out and capture this beauty.  


I cropped it and added some quick filters before posting it to my instagram account, and I know I have used it in various marketing since- on my website and likely it's made an appearance in another other AR blog post.

Interesting home! I'm not sure where the landscaping stops and the home begins, and in the case of this home, I can't help but see its charm.

Hi Erika --- Wow!  This is a home with lots of personality(if homes can possess such things, right?).   Nice entry.

That mural tells quite a story about flamingos and about the owner.

What an amazing find. This is environmental art at it's best. You did a good job of capturing the way the house fits seamlessly into its environment.
