Time to update our headshots!

Love this post from The Onion, simply because it is hilarious. With a title like I Wasn’t Going To Buy This House Until I Saw The Realtor’s Headshot On The Sign, how could it not have some delicious morsels to offer up?

I’ve never understood lots of things about the way we Realtors market ourselves, and, apparently, lots of consumers don’t either.

    Photos on our business cards?
    Headshots on yard signs?
    Faces on grocery carts?

I don’t get it, but the way the guy at the Onion says it is a lot funnier!

Do I need to make our picture on the blog a little bigger?

  3. You need to have “multi-million dollar agents” somewhere too!

  4. Ah, head shots. I debated that one a long time before I went with it. But I have a giant head so on the sign it’s actually about three quarter life sized. And I have Doberman Pinschers so the pet shot wasn’t going to work unless I also sold home security systems. But in my defense, I wore a shirt out of my closet and I made my photographer promise to not take 10 years and 20 pounds off of me. She could clean up lighting errors but could not change my appearance. And it ended up like this:

  5. Valerie,

    Do you specialize in selling dog houses?
