Not 4, Not 6, Not 8… 32 Pictures!

Buyers WANT to see your house. If you have your house on the market and your listing agent has only taken a handful of pictures, they are doing you a dis-service. How many potential buyers are not even walking in the front door because they only see a few pictures online and think something is wrong with the rest of the house? Our MLS, Birmingham Multiple Listing Service, allows 32 pictures to be uploaded. If you have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, kitchen and family room you can take 4 pictures of each bedroom (12 pics), a couple of pictures of both bathrooms (4 pics), a couple of pictures of your kitchen and family room (6 pics), and exterior pictures (4 pics). We are at a total of 26 pictures and have covered the entire house! As a seller, check out the major websites like,, and and see how many pictures of your house are available. If you are not seeing quality pictures of your home online, get your agent back out to your house!

Ask for more, expect more from your agent.

As a real estate professional, my job is to consult and guide my clients through the rigors of the real estate buying and selling process. In a market in constant flux, my role is to help my clients take advantage of ever-changing opportunities while avoiding any potential pitfalls they may encounter. In pursuit of my clients' goals, it is important to me to make the distinction that I'm not a salesperson trying to convince people to buy or sell a house or a piece of land. I am a person who enjoys helping people, which is why I love what I do. It is also why I take seriously my role as a professional consultant who guides clients through an often convoluted process to help them find the perfect fit for their needs. If you are interested in speaking with someone about real estate who approaches this business very seriously, and who focuses squarely on you, contact me. I offer a free, first time consultation to anyone looking for answers to questions about real estate. Let us begin there. Buying or selling real estate is an enormous investment — often the biggest you'll ever make. You require, and deserve, the best. I am here to provide the best real estate consulting services available.
