This Realtor has learned the importance of professional
real estate photography.
“I have been a full time Realtor for 22 years. I know the importance of good photography. I always prided myself on the quality of my photographs, that is until I hired Jim Barber. Jim made my homes stand out from all the rest! No more dark rooms, bright window light or small corner shots of a room. Now the color is clear and the wide angle really shows off the space of the home without distortion. Jim is professional in appearance and shows respect to the homeowners and myself by being on time and even a little early. His turn around time is quick and he is easy to schedule an appointment with. I highly recommend Jim Barber for Real Estate photography and he is also highly skilled in portrait photography for your business cards or that special marketing piece.

Have you ever noticed what separates the top performers in your
industry from the rest?
One of the factors is that they all offer their sellers the advantages of using professional photographers for their listing photos. It’s a real struggle to get to the top if you’re not offering your clients the best possible presentation of their property.
I follow the listings on Zillow quite often. I’m always amazed by the illogical practice of doing a price drop of $3500, rather than making a $125 investment in professional photos that will stimulate more interest (traffic) in the property.
You may be asking, “So, how do I benefit from using a professional
photographer for listing photos?”
- The research shows that homes will sell faster and for higher commissions when listing photos are done by a professional !
- Increases the number of listings you will book! Imagine this scenario, a seller has already talked to another realtor about listing their home. Now, it’s your turn. What if you told them “All of my listings are photographed by a professional photographer. This gives your home a much better appearance than other listings on MLS”. Doesn’t that give you a BIG advantage in this situation?
- You receive a special gift on the first home that I shoot for you.

The sellers made a huge contribution to the quick sale of this home. Despite the fact that 3 children live in the home, the house was “neat as a pin” when I arrived for the photoshoot. They had followed each one of Lou’s recommendations on how to prepare the house for photos (and visits). Inside and out, each item was organized in an appealing fashion.
Yes, I’m going to take credit for the great listing photos. Lou added the photos to the listing for this property on late Monday afternoon. Monday night she received 3 calls to set up appointments to see the home. The home was shown 3 or more times on Monday. Monday night she received 2 offers to buy the home at FULL listing price. Tuesday morning the sellers accepted the offer. This cascade of activity all started with the addition of professional quality photos to the listing.
I am Jim Barber, a commercial/real estate photographer based in Forsyth, GA. I have invested in the specialized equipment to photograph real estate; I have many years of training in using computer programs to really make the listing photos shine; and I’ve got the commitment to bring out the best in every photo that I deliver. Considering travel time, shooting time and computer time, I invested the better part of 9 hours in this project. I WILL DO THE SAME FOR YOU ! Call Jm at 478-737-2244.
