[WAXHAW, NC], January 18, 2018 – Charlotte Real Estate Photos by Julie Legge of Waxhaw, NC has won both “Best Of Design Photography” and “Best of Customer Service” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home remodeling and design.

The real estate and architectural photography firm was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than one million active home building, remodeling and design industry professionals.

The Best Of Houzz is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography.

A “Best Of Houzz 2018” badge will appear on winners’ profiles, as a sign of their commitment to excellence. These badges help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals in every metro area on Houzz.

“We’re equally excited about both awards,” says Julie Legge, owner and photographer. “The Design Photography award represents that our images were among the most popular on Houzz for the year. And our Customer Service award is our fifth in a row, which reflects our ability as a small business to take care of our customers. We're so thankful that our clients have trusted us with their high end photography needs.”
