Bonjour!! and thank you for stopping by,
My name is Rom Chaudemanche. I was born in Paris, France and lived mostly in Normandy before moving to the USA many years ago...
About 15 years ago my beautiful wife Cathy Chaudemanche started her new career as a Real Estate Agent.
At that time, I was having my own career in the software industry but I still wanted to help her as best as I could with advertising, marketing and various back-office tasks.
When she took her first listing and asked me to help her with the pictures...well let's say that the $99 point and shoot camera I owned at that time did not do the trick...:)
I learned from trial and error, practicing and perfecting on our own listings...Real estate photography and visual marketing quickly became a passion. The rest is history as they say...
I joined Cathy in 2019 as an agent as well to assist her. We have a lot of fun working together. I am sure I don't have to tell you who is the boss in our business relationship...My better half is also the smarter one!!!.
After helping other agents with their listings pictures for years, I decided it was time to "go official" and set up my little real estate photography biz. So here it is...
There is an expression that goes like this "Do something you love and you will never work another day in your life".
How true that is!!
Today I share my time between working with Cathy, running my photography biz and our volunteer work.
I am happy.
How I work:
I spend in average twice the amount of time on site than most of my competitors. Why? - Because I take time with Composing and Staging shoots (moving stuff around, final touch, etc...). Why?- Because that's the only way to come up with final great real estate pictures.
I spend additionally an average of 2 hours in post processing (retouching) each listing- Same reason: that's the only way to come up with final great real estate pictures consistently!!
If you are going out of your way for your clients and spending extra money out of your pocket, why not doing it right?
That's how I see it and how I operate. Your clients will see the difference. #ThisIsYourBrand

"I cannot have been more thrilled to have hired Rom for my special interior home decor project.

"Amazing photographer and great person! I had hired a real estate agent and hated the pictures that were taken. My daughter who works in the marketing/advertising field and knows how important branding is just told me, " Get them redone." I did a search and read Rom's reviews and decided he was my going to save my listing. Rom immediately answered my call and was able to take the best pictures of my house highlighting the architectural details. I could not be more pleased and even better, so is my daughter. I would tell anyone about better real estate photos - Central NJ. I am just so pleased and thrilled with the pictures. No one can control the market but how photos are displayed is critical. Call Rom or better yet tell your agent you want Rom." - Rita John
"What a great photographer! Rom did a shoot for our listing last week. He was so pleasant, kept me and the client informed, wore a mask & shoe covers to be safe, and delivered the photos the next day as promised in multiple formats. The photos are outstanding! Rom seems to love what he does and takes pride in his work. Thank you Cindy Mussman of StellarStagings for the introduction to Better Real Estate Photos! Highly recommend and thank you Rom!" - Mary Churchill

"Having these virtual pics made a big difference, at this week’s open house more potential buyers came through, we as consumers are very virtual in purchasing anything. When you can see where you can put that big screen tv, couch or even split one room up to have multiple uses, if actual staging is not obtainable, it’s not in the budget, virtual staging is the next best thing. Better Real Estate Photo did a fabulous job, thank you." - Brenda Ricks
