There’s a reason for photos in real estate ads

In response to an Oct. 31 letter writer who pointed out that the pictures in the classified ads for Realtors are of the people themselves and sometimes their pets, too, instead of the homes we have for sale, please allow me to clarify what goes on. Pictures of the homes and properties we have for sale appear on numerous websites, magazines, videos, too. The idea of the classified ads here is to get our faces out and, like you said, sell ourselves.

I confess to having my dog Charlie in my ad recently. That probably pushed the letter writer over the edge. I’m sorry. But, gosh, he sure is a cute dog, give me a call and I’ll introduce you.
