Pictures are worth a 1,000 words or are they

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential California Real Estate

What is it about the pictures we all tend to put on our cards and advertising! I know that we are suppose to put our best foot forward and present a respectable and professional image. We all know that you can never make a second first impression or take back something you said that got you 2nd place when working to get a listing. What I would like to know is what are your feelings or opinions when it comes to seeing a picture of someone who is a professional in a not so professional setting. I am not talking about those candid shots of me being pushed in the water while sunning at the beach with people screaming "he'll die if we don't get him back in!" what I am talking about is maybe during an outing or doing something recreational. Let's say a casual picture that represents you as a real person not just another pearly white smiled salesman in a sears sucker suit.

I have had and still have card with and card without pics. I couldn't find a place to put them in a few of our card designs so I left them out! Haven't notice any difference other than the cards stand out in the crowd without the pic too. ~Rita

Having no picture is better than using something so old it could be a high school graduation photo.

You make a good point, people just love pictures, especially pictures of other people.

I agree with Mark. Pctures jog the memory, but they should be current.
