Photographer, Owner of Visual Properties

As a professional architectural photographer, I’ve shot thousands of homes for real estate agents in the course of my career. No Realtor goes to greater lengths in preparing a listing for its market debut than Van and his talented staging designers. They not only possess a nuanced understanding of what attracts buyers, but they also bring an unparalleled attention to detail in how they work with sellers to transform their homes. From having a client’s home freshly painted using a curated selection of colors to swapping light fixtures and bringing in furnishings from their staging warehouse, Van and his team truly have carved out a niche for showcasing their clients’ homes. From a photographer’s perspective, Van’s efforts make it that much easier to capture the beauty of a home through my lens. The final imagery reflects his team’s careful thought and hard work. They know this better than anyone: it’s far better to invest time and resources up front in getting a home just right than to have it languish on the market. The payoff is tangible. I like to say that my job as a photographer is to excite buyers through pictures so that they’ll step through the door and fall in love. With Van’s listings, that’s precisely what happens. I am not surprised at the pace at which Van’s properties sell or at his success in our competitive market. He and his team are great to work with, and I’m thankful for our longstanding partnership.
