Good afternoon Hannah - I like your new picture.  You are the studious hard working agent.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) 2 months ago

While I think both pics reveal a very nice warm person, Hannah Williams ... I like your original pic best for the same reasons that you provide.  A bit more polished ... and exceedingly warm and inviting.  Grant Schneider makes a good case for the 2nd tho too ...

Tough decision!

I am surprised Grant Schneider  as the new picture is a studious picture I do like the picture with a smile

Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi  looks like we agree the smile is more inviting  ... I don't care for this picture myself as i do not like selfies

Thank you both for your opinions  greatly appreciated

Hannah

Hannah,

I agree with you.  I love your picture, it is friendly and professional.  And one of the best portrait  photographers always advised that the eyes tell the story.  In the first picture your eyes do---friendly, knowledgeable and fun.  The second your eyes are not the main attraction...A

Posted by Ron and Alexandra Seigel, Luxury Real Estate Branding, Marketing & Strategy (Napa Consultants) 2 months ago

I love your "real" picture, you look friendly and approachable, however, your selfie is much more "real."  Just my 2cents, but I never ever like posed profile photos - it's just me - I like candid photos that show the real person, not the professional photos, although I totally get why we use them.  So, with that said, I love your selfie photo. 

Posted by Susan Haughton, Susan & Mindy Team...Honesty. Integrity. Results. (Long and Foster REALTORS (703) 470-4545) 2 months ago

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  I will change it after the contest is over maybe before as I do not think you would not know me if you saw me from the first picture .

Thank you for your opinion much appreciated

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

One more thing, Hannah,  I like seeing a person straight on in a photo as if they are sitting accross, sideways gives the feeling of someone who deals sideways.  A

Posted by Ron and Alexandra Seigel, Luxury Real Estate Branding, Marketing & Strategy (Napa Consultants) 2 months ago

Susan Haughton  Funny you should say that as the first one was taken by my friend  in the office . Her pictures always look professional .She would love to read this . The picture at the bottom of my blog where I am standing was professionally done . 

Thank you for your opinion it is appreciated

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

I vote for your regular photo!!  Smiling, approachable, helpful Hannah!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886, Arizona's Top Banana! (Phoenix Property Shoppe) 2 months ago

I like the first one better.  It shows your smiling friendly face.

Posted by Belinda Spillman, Colorado Living! (Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado) 2 months ago

Hannah that is a really good picture for a selfie.  Good job

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) 2 months ago

Cute. I'll also vote for the regular photo. You are warm and friendly. :) 

Posted by Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD, REALTORS® in Clark County, WA (ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors) 2 months ago

I'm sure we would recognize each other if we saw each other in a Realtor setting. The photo you use for your head shot is very friendly and personable, and you haven't changed at all. If I'm reading a contract or driving at night, I'll have glasses on, too. Otherwise, no glasses. You look fabulous!

Posted by Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty, 601-991-2900 Office; 601-278-4513 Cell (Front Gate Real Estate) 2 months ago

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886  looks like we are on the same page - will change it back soon

Belinda Spillman  I like the first one too

George Souto  I do not usually take good selfies 

Thank you for your opinions I really appreciate them

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  I like the first one too

Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty  You are so sweet  it would be great to meet you in person . Wish I was going to the Realtor convention

Thank you both for your opinions

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Hannah Williams it seems we all have much the same opinion...I like both of the photos, but your original is the one I would pick for every day use.  I love your glasses, so that photo is fun too!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 2 months ago

Lisa Von Domek will keep for a little while but will go back to the old tried and true after the contest

Thank you for your feedback really appreciated

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Good evening Hannah Williams,

I have to agree with most of the others..I like the first photo..eyes tell the story..warm, professional and a great smile!

Posted by Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR, Serving Buyers & Sellers in NW Austin Real Estate (Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899) 2 months ago

You are most welcome Hannah Williams I don't know what I am going to do.  I just left Paul a comment that my current photo is almost a year old...but how can I dump my beau?!!  LOL

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 2 months ago

Both look very much like you. If you wear your glasses then of course you shoudl let us see you with them on. Great photo.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) 2 months ago

I actually love the photo in your signature where you are standing.  But I think they all look great.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) 2 months ago

I'm with Tammy Lankford, I love the one of you standing!

But, love the one with your glasses - you look professional and focused! Great glasses BTW!

Hannah did you get New Glasses? Love the intellectual look, Endre

Posted by Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices) 2 months ago

Good morning, Hannah... it was the glasses that threw me for a minute! But once I looked closely at your picture, I knew it was you!

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage | Charlotte, NC) 2 months ago

Morning Hannah.

Both have their own way of telling us who you are.  The first one say you're easy to approach, the second one shows you're a hard worker.  Interesting

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty AR LLC) 2 months ago

You have such an extremely warm, friendly smile in your first one, but I also like the natural look in your new one. I don't think social media photos have to be so professional. The first for your business card, the new one social media is my choice...Both are great!

Posted by Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400, Long Island Condo & Home Sale Specialists (The Top Team @ Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803) 2 months ago

I like the shape of the glasses a lot!  You look beautiful in both pictures -

Posted by Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA, (Keller Williams Capital Properties) 2 months ago

Hannah, it's tough for me to choose. I love how approachable you look in your first photo, your eyes are very kind and welcoming. The second photo, however, is so natural and shows you working in your element. I think Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 have a great idea on how to use both.

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) 2 months ago

I'm going to be a contrarian as I actually like the new picture better.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) 2 months ago

I like the first photo because you are looking right at us!

Posted by Kat Palmiotti, The House Kat (Grand Lux Realty, Monroe NY, 914-419-0270, kat@thehousekat.com) 2 months ago

Debbie Reynolds I wear my glasses for reading only or when working on the computer .

Tammy Lankford, I like my standing picture that is staying

Debe Maxwell, CRS  Really ? I am working on the computer in this picture

Thank you for your opinions they are appreciated

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Endre Barath, Jr. I have  the same glasses in a few colors as I need them for reading . Funny another agent always says they make me look intelligent but he is being a wise guy . He is from a competing office . Glad you think so

Nina Hollander  It takes a few seconds for me to recognize me as I am so used to seeing my other picture

James Dray  I am wondering why you have those words under your picture ? I do like you them both can not decide yet .

Thank you for your opinions I greatly appreciate your opinions

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Hannah, I like both photos and the one in your signature block. I agree with Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400. The first for your business card, the new one for social media!

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty, Martha Hilton, Broker) 2 months ago

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400  Well i will use this for a little while and see .The month is not over .

Lise Howe  Oh you are much too kind

Amanda S. Davidson  well as I said I will use this one until the contest is over and then I will go back to my first one

Thank you so much for your feedback

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Gabe Sanders  Your opinion means so much

Kat Palmiotti  That makes sense

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®  they are good options -- is Active Rain considered  social media or business ?

Thank you for your feedback it is greatly appreciated

Hannah

I plan on participating in this challenge.  Just give me a few days to get my act together.  

As for you pictures, I like both for different reasons.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) 2 months ago

Well, see, I didn't know you wore glasses. And even though you don't' wear them all the time, it's nice to see how you look with them on! Fun change, even if you go back to the previous photo or a new professional photo after the challenge. I like the one of you standing in your signature as well! -Kasey

Posted by Kasey & John Boles, Boise & Meridian, ID Ada/Canyon/Gem/Boise Counties (Jon Gosche Real Estate, LLC - BoiseMeridianRealEstate.com) 2 months ago

Myrl Jeffcoat I am glad you are participating also cannot wait to see your new picture

Kasey & John Boles  I have to wear these darn glasses they started making print smaller on the computer screen one day when I turned it on .. The one of me standing will still remain on my post

Thank you both for your input it is greatly appreciated

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Hannah

Wow, the glasses took me by surprise at first but then I knew it was you. It's always interesting to see people with and without glasses - sometimes the look is so different.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 2 months ago

Jeff Dowler, CRS  What do you think ??? Should I go back to my original picture when the contest is over ?  When I see the picture it looks strange to me

Thanks for your input your feedback will be appreciated

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Hi Hannah

While I like the one with glasses I prefer the one you were using - it really shows off your nice smile. But maybe your professional one will be even better! And like others have said I like the one of your standing, too!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 2 months ago

Hannah Williams - Your warm heart shines through every photo...!!  Thank you for joining in the fun and playing along!

Posted by Maria Sapio, Real Estate Agent- Carlisle, PA. Mariasapio.com (Berkshire Hathaway Homesale Realty) 2 months ago

Jeff Dowler, CRS  Thanks for stopping back  The one with me standing will always be there at least for the next several years . ( till I look really different) Guess I will change back to the smiling face in November

Thanks for your professional opinion

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

Oh Maria Sapio that is very sweet of you to say but I think the old picture wins until I get new head-shots taken .

Hi sista Hannah.
Love the new photo of you "at work". Is that your reviewing a contract look? 

Posted by Carol Williams, "Customized Mentoring & Marketing Services" (U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.) 2 months ago

Yes it is Carol Williams I am viewing it on the computer . You sure know me well Sister Carol - Hope you are having  a great Saturday --  wish you would turn around when I am talking

Thank you for your professional input always welcome here

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

It is a bit rude not turning around when you're talking to me, isn't it?

Posted by Carol Williams, "Customized Mentoring & Marketing Services" (U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.) 2 months ago

Just a bit I feel as if you are walking away from me  or turning away --  Carol Williams  although the oruginal concept was cute

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

The smile on your face, in the first picture, wins hands down! Maybe you could take another selfie with the glasses and smile directly at the camera? Lol!

 

Posted by Nina Rogoff, Sells Real Estate! (RE/MAX Executive Realty) 2 months ago

Nina Rogoff  We are getting new pictures taken in our office for company website so I think I will just keep this until the end of the contest  on go back to picture #1 until  then

I can appreciate your new photo as I'm always wearing glasses, too!  But my photo on the left is about a month old, so we'll see what I come up for this contest.  Great glasses, btw!

Posted by Jan Green, HomeSmart Elite Group, REALTOR®, EcoBroker, GREEN (Value Added Service, 602-620-2699) 2 months ago

Jan Green  So glad you like my glasses .Perhaps a picture with glasses of you until the end of the month

Thank you fo your input

Hannah

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

I think that's a great idea Hannah Williams !  Today's mission - selfie with glasses!

Posted by Jan Green, HomeSmart Elite Group, REALTOR®, EcoBroker, GREEN (Value Added Service, 602-620-2699) 2 months ago

Hello Hannah --- both photos are nice. Very similar to the voice I heard on the telephone.

Jan Green  Looking forward to seeing your picture with glasses

Michael Jacobs   Guess it is the real me . It is like hearing your own voice Sometimes we don't always sound and look like we imagine . I am usually smiling - hard  for me to decide
