Tom Witzel’s listing sold fast and $10,000 over asking. Was it the photos?

When you hear fast-sale stories like Tom Witzel’s you probably picture something high-end and show-homey. Witzel himself admits he thought this 2-bedroom/1-bath home in Thornton would take a little longer to sell.

But 24 hours was all it took.

Yes, as he’ll tell you, it was priced right and the market is still short of inventory, but he also credits the photos by Mediamax Senior Photographer John Koliopoulos.

They “made the house pop,” he says, “and we had a lot of activity and I got calls from agents at the house – there were five or six agents at the house contemplating writing offers, so a lot of it is due to the owners’ upkeep of the property but also a lot of it is due to the photos.”

Tom Witzel with RE/MAX Alliance Westminster has been in real estate for 15 years. Early on the advice was to get your own digital camera, he says, but “as time went on we saw that most realtors do not know how to take photos.”

In the past few years, he’s gone pro exclusively.

“With every listing I always use professional photography, and, if possible, I always like to use John because he knows how to shoot a house. He knows what’s important, what’s not important. He knows the right lighting, the right angles, what really helps.”

What’s more, ordering online is easy. Turnaround is quick. Does it save him time? “Absolutely.”

“It’s just one less thing that I have to do and I know that by having Mediamax and John do it, I never have to worry. I never have to worry about the quality of the photos. I never have to worry about the delivery and I never have to worry about the interaction with my clients and John. John just does a great job.”
