"A picture is worth a thousand... DOLLARS!"

We have all heard the old saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  When it comes to real estate marketing in today's world pictures can make a huge difference in how quickly your property sells and ultimately, impacts how much you sell it for. Long gone are the days of walking into a real estate office and asking, “Hey, what’s for sale around here?” We no longer pull out a three-ringed binder, full of grainy black and white pictures of listings. Today, home buyers can sit in the comfort of their current home and use any number of websites to sort through available properties.This is your property's FIRST SHOWING and that's why excellent photography is so critical; it's makes all the difference when buyers are parusing listings to see which ones they want to drive to for a better look.

I so often see poorly taken photos of listings in my area and wonder why those sellers chose to work with that agent. If I were selling my home, especially in today's online market, I would want it portrayed online in its best light, wouldn't you? That's why I invested in high quality DSLR camera. I take my own professional style, high resolution photos with my Nikon D7100 camera. This is good news to the sellers who hire me because that means I don't have to increase my commission to cover the cost of hiring an expensive professional photographer. See for yourself!


The internet is full of bad photos taken by real estate agents. Just take a look at this listing in my area! Would you work with an agent who portrayed your home this way? I wouldnt! Please understand, I'm not picking on this agent, I just think this person did his or her client a terrible injustice.

If I were a buyer I would scroll right past this listing, wouldn't you?






Now look at how I take photos for listings. Clear, high definition, professional style photos which are shown here smaller than they appear online to save space and these are just a few of the 300 photos I took of this listing. (Click on each image if you'd like to see how the full size image was shown to buyers.)

This listing received 9 multiple offers and sold in less than one week!







Now, which agent would rather have working for you?!
