Why isn't my picture on the Home Page of the website?

I get this question all the time, mostly from other Realtors. Rarely do my clients ask why, and that to me, speaks volumes. My picture isn't on my Home page because when people are beginning to search for homes on the Internet in Vancouver or anywhere they are looking for a home, not an agent.

When I first built this website back in 2004, I did a lot of research and visited many other Realtor websites to get a feeling for how I wanted my website to work. Back then most Realtor websites were basically an online business card and ego page. This never set right with me. I knew that if I was looking for information about homes for sale online I would want to, well, look at homes!

So I tried to build a website that would provide people searching for homes for sale in Vancouver WA with as much information as possible. I included an IDX feed from the Multiple listing service that displayed all the homes for sale in Vancouver. I wrote recommendations for local restaurants, grocery stores, and my favorite places to shop. All the information I would be looking for if I was considering a move to Vancouver. And the people who used my website responded. I had many calls and email from my website users who appreciated the information on the website. I knew I was doing the right thing when people would call me and say "I feel like I know you after using your website, can you help me buy a home?". 

So that's why you don't see my picture all over my website. Ifyou look hard enough, you will find our pictures and bio on my "About Us" page. So I hope you will find this website useful, and when you are ready to buy or sell a home in Vancouver, WA, give us a call. We are always available to help.
