I’d like to introduce you to Brad Carper, a professional photographer and our team’s latest addition.
Today, I have some really, really exciting news. Before we get to it, I want to take a moment to say thank you. This year, we will end with more clients served in a year than we’ve ever served any other year—486.
One of the investments we made this year is a gentleman I have with me here today, Brad Carper. Brad is a professional photographer whom we now have on staff here at the Haro Group. One of the things we believe in is offering an unparalleled experience to our sellers. We make sure that their houses are marketed in the best way possible. One of the key points in that process is to do professional photography every time—many Realtors out there don’t do professional photography at all.
Investing in a professional photographer has helped us get the staggering results that we’ve had this year. As the market grew hotter, we found that one of the best photographers that we were using was getting busier and busier, and wait times for our clients were getting longer and longer. It was getting tough to be able to control when it happened and how long someone would have to wait. We didn’t like the level of service that they offered, so we decided to go out and hunt for someone who could serve on staff with us who was a good match for the team and our clients.

That is why we’re excited to introduce Brad Carper to you.
Brad graduated college with a degree in cinematography. He worked at and taught for Wolf Camera for 15 to 20 years, and when Wolf went out of business back in 2012, he moved to J&D Photo in Greenville, South Carolina, and managed their lab for five years. During that time, Brad taught professionally on the side, and shot photos, much of which was architectural. In fact, it was upon seeing his portfolio from this time that Brad was consequently hired.
What does a typical day look like for Brad? After arriving at work, he checks his calendar and emails to find out what his assignments are for that day. Most of the time, he’ll photograph between one and three homes per day. When he’s finished with those assignments, he returns to the office for post-processing, after which he’ll send them to the listing manager. The listing manager is responsible for posting the finished photos on the MLS. That’s the beauty of the process—we have the ability to turn the pictures around very quickly for clients.
One of the things people say about hiring is that you should always hire someone better than you, and it’s fairly clear that Brad is at the top of the game in this department. We are genuinely excited to have him on the team.
If you have any questions or if we can help you in any way, please reach out to us. We’d love to help you out.
