Old Me, New Me

Answering the challenge:

My October 2018 update your profile challenge....

by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, 

Old MeThe picture to the left is the one you have been looking at for about a year as my profile pic and it is time for it to go. Not that it's all that out dated, it's just that it wasn't that good of a picture in the first place. I obviously took it my self which is not bad in it's self ( I was a professional photographer in one of my many past lives) but it was taken with a used $3.00 web cam and no backdrop. I was actually setting things up for short video blog posts and decided this still was better then the profile pic I was using at that time.

Bob Timm 10/06/2018My new profile pic was taken by the same photographer (Me) and I'm wearing a shirt that bears the logo of  the radio station I love and broadcast my radio show, MINOT TODAY, from.

I am also helping the station, KHRT, out as an Account Executive. I owe a lot to Christian Radio both on a personal and professional basis.

Christian radio played a very large part in my salvation and they were also instrumental in my success as a Realtor.

I most likely will stick with this profile picture for the next year so I hope you find it satisfactory.

Thanks Kathy Streib , I used to get that allot, especially on the rare occasion when I would go to the mall.

Thank you Kasey & John Boles , it's going to be a great weekend with our daughter home from college for the 1st time.

Thank you Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR , I'd like to figure out how to get the whole photo in the little profile box .

Thanks for sharing your new photograph.

Have a great day and an outstanding weekend.

Kathy is right....Bruce Willis almost double !

You look pretty much the same but a new fresh photo cannot be wrong. It can make us feel good to update.

Thanks Roy Kelley and the same good thoughts back to you.

Bruce Wills has my good looks Sally K. & David L. Hanson but I wish I had his money .

Thanks Debbie Reynolds it's nice to take a break from aging once in a while.

You are to kind Maria Sapio , thank you.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

I've got to get this done, Bob.  Everyone is switching profile photos.  I haven't yet.  Been hanging onto the same one for over 10 years.

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

You have "timeless" beauty Myrl Jeffcoat , everyone would still recognize you even if you used a 20 year old picture.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

I love the new photo - I can see your eyes! You look very approachable.

Bob "RealMan" Timm - I don't see old and I don't see new. I just see you and your authentic self. Both photos look great to me!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) 2 months ago

Thank you Kat Palmiotti , I am very approachable, I love to visit.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

Thank you Patricia Feager . The new picture is of a higher quality but it's very kind of you to say the old one looks great too.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

A much more focused and clearer picture now, Bob. Can I suggest that you crop it so that the top of your head isn't cut off in the profile picture? Tops of heads being cut off in profile pics anywhere is one of my pet peeves. (But you don't really have to listen to me, you know.)

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

Nina Hollander , I was disappointed that it did not fit completely into the profile box so I made it the size AR recommends.... it didn't change a thing. I'm going to try abain this afternoon to see if I can get it to fit. (busy morning).

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

Hi Bob. I like your new photo! To make it fit, you may need to crop the pic a little so it doesn't chop your head off. Otherwise, it's much more clear than the previous one.

Thank you Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty , I will see what I can do today as I'd really like the whole thing to fit.

Good morning Bob. I really like your new picture. Yo do seem more focused.

Great new photo.  You're right, this one shows your true angles and is a good likeness as I compare the old one.  Nice job as a photographer!

Thank you Lisa Von Domek .

Thanks Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 it is pretty natural.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

Thanks Jan Green , I think it's really hard to take your own picture because you can't look through the view finder (if I could have I would have got rid of the wrinkles in my shirt).

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 2 months ago

See, we're too fussy with our own photos!  You're so right! 

I was going to take one tonight with my reading glasses and pony tail, but prefer a better hair day!  

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

I like the new profile photo. This is a good entry for the challenge.

Jan Green don't get me started on having a better hair day .

Thank you Gita Bantwal . It's an improvement over what I had but nearly as fun as your choice.
