#PrayforBogeyHillsCC

Late Thursday night St. Charles County lost a beloved gem. Bogey Hills Country Club was one of St. Charles County’s most historic and loved golf courses in the area. Late Thursday night to Friday morning, firefighters fought to put out a five alarm fire at the Bogey Hills Country Club which has been passed down through 3 generations of families. Our thoughts and prayers are with the owners, families, members and community affected by the destruction of this amazing building. Luckily, reports show no one was hurt and the family plans to rebuild. Read more here:

Photos: Lesson of the Week

Today we are going to have a quick talk about photos :). Too often lately have we seen photos taken by “realtors” WITH THEIR CELL PHONES in the picture. Here is the problem with that:

A. Any reputable Realtor will either have a professional camera and know how to work it.

B. A reputable Realtor will hire a professional photographer if they do not have a professional camera.

C. NO ONE should ever have to put up with a Realtor that they pay to be taking pictures with their cell phone!!!!

Here are a few more things that SHOULD NEVER happen in your home photos:

D. Toilet seat should be down for all photos.

E. Realtor and anyone else should NOT be in the photo. A photographer/Realtor should know how to shoot a room without finding themselves in the mirror of the photo.

F. There should NOT be a photo of just the floors or just a door. I’ve skipped out on seeing a home before because I couldn’t see the whole room or get a feel for the whole layout.

There are many more things that should be avoided when taking photos that we may help touch base on later. However, if you have any questions until then or would like us to show you what a difference professional photos can make, give us a call today!

Have a Sunshine Day!
