Through the lens of an Estate Agent

  04 Aug 2015

Many say that a picture speaks a thousand words and that is true when it comes to photography for estate agents. It is vitally important that all photographs assist the viewer or potential buyer, as we like to refer to them as, the perfect opportunity to see everything within that room that can help them visualise them living there.

There is nothing worse than seeing clutter in a photograph. When we take instructions from a vendor or landlord we often ask them to assist us in moving various items so we can get that perfect photo. We appreciate that sometimes this is not possible but working together we can ensure we get the best photo to show off your investment. You wouldn’t try and sell a car without giving it a good clean first!

Some estate agents photos can look misleading and we encourage potential buyers or tenants to take the time to see it for themselves. It’s all about the angles and we sometimes find ourselves taking two maybe three photos of the one room to help show it off in its best light.

The time of day is very important too as there is no benefit to taking a photo later in the day or maybe when the sun is not out to give it that extra shine. If you have a south facing garden then standing there getting a photo with the sun in the background can be a pointless task. We make every effort to make sure that we get the ‘right’ shot and not just a ‘make do’ photo.

Every property professional should know the basics of getting the most from the photos you take however some people like to play with image software to convert photos into something they are not. We take the time and make every effort to provide a first class service to our clients in real time and not just on the computer.

First impressions count. Whether it is a well taken photograph displayed online or in a shop window or maybe even when someone is driving past to have a sneaky external viewing, helping your estate agent by tiding the front garden, hanging out some plants and giving that driveway a sweep will make all the difference.

At Jezzards, we are experts at selling and renting property, not at taking photos and drawing floor plans. We leave that to the professionals, who make sure that the details show your property off in its true glory.

For further information about selling or renting your property, please contact our customer service team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 03330 433 633 or email us at

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "

  • " Everybody at Jezzards Estate Agents, Surbiton was very patient and sympathetic to our needs as non-residents looking to buy in a completely new area. We were provided with maps and advised on the layout of the town and nearby areas. We would particularly like to thank Gaj Murali for showing us round various properties in the pouring rain and taking a personal interest in helping us find the right property. Thank you Gaj. "
