    Do any of you ever get permission from a customer to use pictures of their property you worked on to advertise by or show to other people?

    I always ask before I use pictures of someone's property for marketing. I had a booth in a trade show once and used pictures from two of the properties I service. I had ask the guy that lived there if it was ok and he said to go for it but didn't tell his wife.During the show they came to my booth and started talking and meeting my wife. His wife actually gasped when she saw the picture of her house in my booth. He explained that he had given me permission and had failed to tell her. I actually don't think she was mad just surprised. I wouldn't suggest using pictures without permission and reasuring your client that you don't give out addresses.
     
  4. I always ask permission before using a photo of the property or placing a yard sign in the yard.
