Kimi in MN asks:
I am wondering if any photographers ever leave a business card or “Thank You” note behind after shooting a property? I am debating leaving something saying “Thank you for allowing us to photograph your home today! Best of wishes to you!” but not sure if I should just have our logo or contact info on the note, like a business card? I hesitate because the agent is our client and we do NOT want our client’s client contacting us directly. I feel it’s a nice added value gesture on the agent’s behalf, although not necessary. Thoughts?
I think it is very appropriate to leave a card for the homeowner. Homeowners always like to know when people are in their home and why.
While agents can always see who showed a listed property and when from the lockbox access data it’s always been a homeowner courtesy to leave a card when you show someone’s home. Same thing for a photographer. It just says “I was here and photographed your home”. Even if you were there with the listing agent, I think it is a nice courtesy to leave a card.
