Show Those Pearly Whites And Give It An "I'll Hire You" Smile

Services for Real Estate Pros with RE/MAX Executive Realty 104763

T’is the season! This is a great time to redo your photo. Begin 2020 with a new look. It’s a fresh start. Your marketing will look fresh, and those who receive your marketing will take a few seconds and notice “the new you.”

A photo shoot with a “professional photographer” in a variety of settings would be a great way to start the New Year. Use locations that are popular and familiar in your town like the Town Common; Local Parks; Walking Trails; The Local Dog Park; and Historic Buildings in Town. There should be casual attire and business clothing. A workout session at the gym would work well, too.

Marketing you with fresh photos is a great way to provide a new look that will attract fresh eyes. 2020 should not begin with same old same old!! Photos get tired and old. Eyes become tired of looking at them. Remember, “the eye buys.”

The team members have an appointment next week to change the photos and provide more options for marketing. Everything is not business. There is life beyond real estate and potential clients like to see their future agent in a variety of settings within their community.

Be the first to change your look; be the one who sets the pace in 2020.

Just another thought for the moment….

It's a good idea to do new fresh photos at least every 5 years.

Morning Barbara.

Haven't changed my photo in years.  Who knows if I'll change it for next year?

Change . . . whoooooo, MEEEEE? LOL

But yeah. I see peeps who DO NOT LOOK ANYTHING like their ancient pic. If you don't like how you look now, change your look! And show it off.

Remember, I'm from showbiz. You walk into a casting director's office not looking like your headshot, you can walk the hell out. They do not like surprises and consumers want you authentic. And this IS Central Casting!
1 year MAX, 6 months better, or any time you change your appearance.

Barbara I have a new picture done every 2-3 years, but I know of agents that still use head shots they took over 20 years ago.

Yes we do change and our photos should reflect that change.  I will be securing a new photo as my hair is now much longer.

Barbara, how often do you change your team's photos? Do you think it is necessary to have your photo on your card?

Hi Barbara - I read your title and immediately thought of my stepson Paul when he was 16. He went into our local Safeway and told them he wanted to work there (after coaching from us). The manager came out and says to Paul - do you have a few minutes to talk now.  He flashed his pearly whites and said - YOU BET I DO!  He got the job!  Now he wasn't a kid that smiled often ( a book/techie worm) but somehow he figured out a new look worked!! Well I might add!

I agree about changing your picture every 2 or 3 years. Mine was taken at an historic site this summer, but I am getting  professional photo very soon with longer hair. I don't understand those women who use an old photo with a bouffant hairstyle from years ago. Then again, I do meet members of the public who look like a blast from the past who probably connect with this!

Good idea! I remember a real estate instructor telling us to keep photos current. He said "You don't want to be meeting clients at the airport and having them ask "Couldn't your granddaughter make it?""
