“FocalPoint has been a wonderful partnership for my company. The professionalism and service is incredible. In the past I have always performed my own photography, however the leverage I have gained from hiring FocalPoint has been incredibly valuable. Sorting & editing photos and saving them to my computer was very time consuming, now I receive all of my photos in an easy to download format already sorted, enhanced and beautiful. My listings are selling quicker too! I am a very happy customer & I highly recommend FocalPoint!”
I listed a home a while back for just under $200,000 that I photo’d myself. I’ve always felt like I took pretty decent pictures with my point and shoot camera. For over 8 months the house was on the market despite the different marketing I was doing and multiple price adjustments. Rather than ask the seller for yet another price reduction, I decided to spend a little money on professional photos, just to see if that would make any difference. I called Marshall with FocalPoint and he came out and re-shot the entire home and helped me switch out all the photos on the various listing websites, flyers, virtual tour, and MLS. I immediately saw an uptick in activity and within 3 weeks the seller had a solid offer. Making that decision turned a listing I almost lost into a closed sale. I only wish I would have had used FocalPoint at the beginning of the listing process. I will from now on.
Since I have been using FocalPoint photography, I realize how important it is to have professional photos to showcase not only my listings, but me as an agent, as well. Focal Point makes me look more professional, and my sellers definitely appreciate the quality of photos. After all, sellers are also buyers, and they are looking at other, not so professional photos of other listings. At first, I was hesitant to make the small investment, since I CAN take my own photos, but now I realize that using Focal Point is great advertisement for me. I can show a potential seller my listing photos, and compare to other listings, there are many out there, that do not have enough light, are crooked, blurry, and a host of other issues. Using a professional makes a huge difference, and FocalPoint really takes the time to get it right.
“It’s been said that a Realtor ‘wears many hats’ which is true, but one of those hats shouldn’t be that of a photographer. Marshall Bridwell with FocalPoint LLC has the eye and equipment for just the right shot, just the right angle and just the right lighting that my clients and my listings deserve. The amount of time I spent taking pictures of my listings and then cropping and enhancing those photos was very frustrating for me since I wasn’t able to get the pictures to turn out the way I wanted. I used to pride myself in my real estate photography until I had the chance to see what this service could do to enhance my listings. In that moment I knew I needed to partner with FocalPoint to provide the very best real estate experience for my sellers. A picture speaks a thousand words and FocalPoint photography helps my listings sell faster!”
