Garbage and Recycling pickup day (don’t shoot on this day)
Please find out the garbage and recycling pick up day for the area of your listing. Garbage and recycling bins at the end of the driveways greatly hinders the quality of the marketing materials produced. Please book a day with no pick up!
Videos shot on Friday delivered Monday of following week.
Photography and Video shot on a Friday will be subject to a delivery date of end of day Monday or Tuesday morning of the following week. Our turnaround policy is 24 – 48 hours and our weekends are reserved for larger projects and family time.
On Camera Coaching Session
We highly suggest you take our on-camera coaching session. This ensures you are confident, effective at speaking, body language, and you nail your presentation. We don’t recommend using your listings as the practice. It takes far too long to become polished and you risk embarrassing yourself publicly. We would rather spend time giving you tips and working with you where we can review and practice with our camera operator than see you post a video that could have been much better.
Video and Photo Due Dates
We will deliver and publish your photographs in 24 hrs from the end time of shoot (the next business day) and video tours will be available to you in 24 to 48 hours after the time of shooting (2 business days). Any photos shot on Friday will be delivered the following Monday and videos will be delivered on the following Tuesday.
We love our clients and will “bend over backwards” to deliver quality by our promised due dates and times, often working late evenings, weekends and holidays. That said, our team does value our family time.
Holidays: Holiday Mondays – You will receive your listing photos and video by end of day Tuesday.
