Before and After: See this stunning transformation!

This has got to be one of the most impressive transformations that I've ever photographed. I only saw the listing after the work was complete, but the agent told me that almost every room in the home had been "de-wallpapered" and repainted - and she sent me the before pictures to prove it. At almost 4,000 square feet, this work was no small task. Even the two-story foyer was wallpapered and repainted. Cristie Reilly with HM Properties deserves a lot of credit for coordinating the transformation and getting this beautiful listing ready for market. The work has definitely made the listing more attractive and move-in ready for a new buyer. Questions about the property? Call Cristie at 704.904.3

Camera Height in Real Estate Photography

Here's a picture of me on top of my mobile office (my new-to-me Honda Pilot - love). I get on top of my car to take pictures of the front elevation for most of my projects. I find that the height of the camera makes for a much better picture. I've included two pictures of the home that I was shooting when the picture of me was taken. See the before picture taken from the ground with no adjustments made to the angles of the home in post processing. Compare that to the "after" picture that was taken from the top of my vehicle. It makes for a much more impactful image. I find standing on my car so helpful in creating better images that the height of my new car was important in my car purchasing
