We’ve all seen them…real estate headshots plastered over park benches. Do they work? And why do real estate agents need professional headshots?
Real estate headshots have typically been taken by professional photographers, using classic outdoor or studio settings. Recently, however, there’s been a trend towards using modern technology to provide a more convenient, economical, and scalable solution for real estate agent headshots.
What makes a good real estate headshot?
A good real estate headshot should convey professionalism and dynamism. It should show the face of the real estate professional clearly and should capture their personality and confidence.
Additionally, when viewed from a distance, a good realtor headshot should be able to immediately grab the attention of potential customers and make them feel confident they can trust that person with one of the largest decisions of their lives.
