Real Estate agent photographs Law to Renew every 5 years

    There should be a law. Agents, real estate agents, anyone who uses their photos for advertisement should be required to renew the photo every 5 years.

    Each and every State Licensed real estate agent shall renew their photo, used in advertisement, every 5 years. The photo shall only have three “retouches”, or computer photoshop corrections, maximum.

    I was with an appraiser yesterday at one of our listings and this conversation came up.

    He met an agent who handed him a card. One of her business cards while she was meeting with him so he could do an appraisal on a listing she had.

    He said, “Connor, I thought to myself after looking at the photo on the card then looking at her, she just handed me someone else’s card…” 🙂

    In a lot of cases, you cannot recognize the person whom you are meeting with in person, due to their picture being the one they took in the 1940’s.

    I wanted to use examples – but that would get me in a lot of trouble 🙂

    Can you say “false and misleading” advertising?

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles. Go to to listen to their latest real estate radio broadcast.
