A new listing means a session with the professional photographer I’ve

  been using since 2014.

It was five and a half years ago, the same day I lost my husband and my camera.


Before this time, I always took my photos. I knew the angles, features, and vignettes that were important to show my view of the house.

 
I meet at the house for photography. It's a perfect time for me to do measurements and note the unique features of each room.

If there is an angle or “goodie “ to highlight, I share my suggestion.

My photos are always back in 24 hours, most of the time that same day.

By then, I have the measurements, description, and MLS data filled in.  When the photos arrive in my inbox, they are ready to be sorted and captioned.

This completion frequently happens late because my goal is to finish while still absorbed with all the feelings of my new listing.

 

8978 Furrow Ave

 

 Using Mr. Orange is a pleasure. He always makes time for my properties and is kind and personable to my clients.

He clicks, not only with the camera, but also with the people.

"He clicks, not only with the camera, but also with the people."  I like that sentence, Margaret!

Myrl Jeffcoat It's true he is kind and gentle with all the sellers. He even uses "booties" to keep the house clean.

The best investment a real estate agent can make is hooking up with a good photographer.  They can make or break you.

Morning Margaret.

My abilities with the camera is limited.  Now that I don't take any listings, I don't worry about it any longer.

Hi Margaret- I love the title and it certainly is a benefit that your long-time photographer also "clicks" with your sellers. It's hard for a seller to 'take a back seat" while strangers are in their home taking photos of everything.

I am fortunate to have a daughter-in-law who is excellent with a camera so I don't have to pay a professional photographer.  I am sure your sellers are always thankful for their awesome pictures.  Hope you have a great day!

I enjoy knowing you are still very much a part of the process, even if you allow the professional photographer to do the "clicking."  I'm with you, I enjoy getting it all done when my mind is filled with the energy and details of the home.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I like to go to all my photos shoots. My photographer is a real pro but he cannot read my mind! And when I measure at the same time...everything is fresh to add descriptions when the photos are finished. Very efficient way for me to work.
