The photography is essential for marketing your home online. Over 90% of today’s buyers are online. Therefore, your buyer is likely viewing your home in a first showing on their computer. Linda ensures that the package they see is phenomenal. Not only does she provide the highest level in photography, but she also commissions customized floor plans (which can also be interactive) and obtains unique url’s and personalized webpages for each listing.
