I'm trying to understand, why did somebody leave another photographer? What's the pain that the photographers are causing, that you can result in them reaching out to you, whether it was a referral or not?
- Yeah. And so, there's the common ones and the funny ones.
The common ones are - the unwillingness generally to help prepare a home. That's one of our big selling points is, we'll spend 15 minutes tidying stuff, regardless of how well the agent tells the homeowner to prepare, there's always stuff out.
And so, we've actually heard people say, "Oh, the photographer, said for insurance reasons, "I can't touch anything." That's not true. They need to find different insurance. I have great insurance, it's cheap and it doesn't tell us we can't move anything. So, that to me is just honestly a lie to get out of doing work. So, there's stuff like that.
And there's other stuff like the photographers are not really, they're not invested in, they're not nice, they're not easy to work with. We get a lot of that. "I'm the photographer, I know better" competitors. And those are my favorite, because of the clients don't like working with them.
We get funny ones like the photographer wouldn't go in because the air conditioning was off. What? The photographer wouldn't shoot the backyard, we had this one recently, because they saw a fox. And so, to us, it's really the customer service, and it's our accommodating that we do, and to make the experience great, both for the agent and the homeowner.
- Do you know what the fox said?
- It sounds like you're going to tell me.
- I don't, just curious.
- I know.
- Do any real estate agents leave photographers because their pricing is too complex?
- No, I couldn't tell you directly. I do know that we've heard people say they love how simple our pricing is. So, whether that was the reason itself, or maybe just like a catalyzing factor that made them make the switch, I don't know. And I think, usually, it's a multitude of things. It's messing up a bunch of other stuff like that.

|I have one (cheap, but somewhat successful) realtor tell me: "Your prices are too too (yes, twice) expensive..." She forgot to add "for me, because I'm too cheap".
She was all mixed up between price and value. When a client only compares prices, it's a lost battle and I won't even try to fight it anymore (it does pisses me off though).
The crazier part of that story, is that I was already giving her a volume discount and I was basically losing money (or wasting time let's say) shooting for her. I guess it's a win-win that I lost her as a client

|A big one is a realtor owes a photographer money, will not pay, so they to call a different photographer rather than pay what they owe. Often I know when a realtor is going to call for service because they will pay past due invoices. Then call for new service.|
