Guide to Realtor Headshots

Even though it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, in the case of your online presence, that first impression could be worth thousands of dollars in commissions.

Capture and relay the passion, personality, and professionalism of who you are and what you and your business do.


What are Real Estate Agent Headshots?

Real estate agents need a professional headshot to help them stand out in the competitive real estate marketplace. Your headshot is often the first time a potential client will see you. A professional, polished portrait that portrays who you are and what you stand for.

Zillow is a website that buyers use to research properties. Clients utilize LinkedIn to study real estate agents before listing their homes. Sellers find information about agents through social media platforms. And on each platform, your clients will expect to see a great professional real estate headshot.

Your headshot should be shown prominently everywhere you have a presence online. Your professional photographs should be used to brand all of your social media outlets, bios, and business cards to ensure consistency.

Why You Need A Professional Real Estate Headshot?

You’re probably well aware that realtors are in the business of building and maintaining relationships. Showing your face through a professional portrait is the most effective technique to sell for relationships on the internet. Realtor headshots are essential for anyone who wants to stand out and be considered by today’s house hunters.

First impressions of real estate agents are made in the blink of an eye. Studies have shown that your clients form an initial image of your likability, trustworthiness, and competency within one tenth of a second.

Even though it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, in the case of your online presence, that first impression could be worth thousands of dollars in commissions.

Your headshots and photographs are important. Despite the fact that you’ve probably seen a real estate headshot that made you squirm, the professional photographers at Erica J Mitchell Photography are here to make you shine!

Preparing to Take a Perfect Realtor Headshot

Before your headshot session, ensure you’re well-rested, hydrated and allow for plenty of time to get ready. You’ll also want to pick out an outfit or two. Think comfort, and think layers. There is a changing area with mirrors for your outfits. If your clothes need it, a quick ironing goes a long way for your headshot.

Consider getting a professional haircut or style and light makeup to enhance your features. If you are not used to a makeup and hair routine, consider giving yourself a few minutes to apply foundation and a quick style.

“Erica was so amazing to work with. She made me feel so comfortable and helped me take the best pictures! Definitely recommend working with her!”

Katie H.

Real Estate Agent, Keller Williams

“My sister and I hired Erica to take our professional headshots. She made us feel very comfortable. Her studio space is very cool and she created a calm, fun experience for us (even though I was stressed out to get my photo taken)! Erica is incredibly detail oriented, and was tuned into the changing lighting conditions, constantly adjusting certain things to create the best light for the best shot. I’ve worked with a handful of photographers over the years and Erica is a true professional in her field! The quality of the finished photos are beautiful. I’m also really impressed with how her editing looks! I would work with Erica again in a heartbeat!”
