Santa Clarita real estate photographerI recently had the opportunity to photograph the below property for Lisa Kaul of the Paris911 Team at REMAX Santa Clarita.

The 1070 square foot house, built in Los Angeles in 1954, had recently been remodeled.

The remodel was absolutely stunning, but the challenge with photographing any house this size is how to make it appear spacious, airy and inviting.

I spent 90 minutes photographing the interior and exterior using existing/ambient light balanced and enhanced with off-camera strobes.

I used several different lenses, each chosen for the specific look and feel I was after.

My goal was to first capture the objective elements of the home – what buyers would see as ‘The House.’ Secondly, I wanted to capture its more subjective elements, elements that would capture and convey its essence and warmth, and hopefully allow buyers to see the stories that are waiting to be told there.

These subjective elements are what buyers would perceive as ‘The Home.’

As a professional photographer I’ve built my reputation on providing the highest level of personalized service to my clients, while delivering the highest caliber work.

I shoot with Canon professional gear and always arrive to assignments on time, with a full range of backup gear. I respect my clients’ time and take every necessary step to ensure assignments are completed on schedule. In addition, I am fully insured for the benefit and safety of my clients.

I use professional camera bodies and lenses, and am able to control the light in challenging environments using five separate off-camera strobes that are triggered wirelessly. After the shoot, I use the latest cutting edge photo processing and editing software – tools that allow me to provide selling agents with stunning images in a timely manner.

If you have done any Googling, you may know us to have a lot of written content. We do YouTube like it’s free… (actually it is…).

There are other ways in which we generate traffic back to our website,

  • Podcasts / Radio Shows
  • Slideshare Presentation
  • Haiku Deck Builds
  • YouTube Videos
  • Screen Recordings and More

but if that website looks like it was built in 2004, it may have a hard time keeping your visitors interest.

Real Estate Lead generating websitesA Real Estate agent does not search for the service and stuff they sell, in the same way their clients are searching.

Most real estate agents are “out of touch” with how their clients are searching for homes on the world wide web.

In fact, when people are searching for real estate, they are going to come across Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com before getting to any of the local real estate agent websites.

In some agent’s opinion, those Mega Real Estate Syndication websites are gaming the system. In fact, some real estate brokerages prohibit their real estate listings from being placed on those sites, permanently. (that is a story for another time).

Today, when someone gets to your website, as someone that is interested in real estate, they should be left with only a few choices.

  • Search for real estate.
  • How much is a home worth.
  • Contact the Agent.

Those are pretty simple things, but most real estate website builders, put way too much stuff on the homepage and it confuses the real estate buyers of the world.

Home Junction with Spatial Match does the opposite.

They are a forward thinking company and have the best client services I have ever encountered.

Plus their Lifestyle Real Estate Search - There is nothing like it on the market.  It’s so good, I’m afraid it may be bought out by the likes of Zillow or Realtor.com, (I’m keeping my fingers crossed that will not happen…)

Here are some of their latest examples of sites they have built for some of their clients.

Be a google ally and not a google adversary

April 30, 2014

Google has the market cornered as far as search, pay per click, social media and internet presence. They are literally all over the place. But there are some “haters” in the world that attempt to ignore Google. Some take the line from “Glengarry Glen Ross” literally, as Pachino said, “I say bet, the other way…”. […]
