I began working with John Kruger in 2011 at Coldwell Banker’s Rye NY office. John was brought in to do the photography for our new listings and to help us with marketing concepts. Over the four years that I worked with John, I found him to be the consummate professional. He was enthusiastic, talented and always eager to help. He was always available to shoot my listings, and the photography always enhanced the property.
During this period, John helped me develop a series of brochures in which I take enormous pride. He is thorough, patient, and is a perfectionist. Over the course of these years John grew to be a good friend and I treasure his friendship and advice. He is a great asset to any agent who chooses to work with him.

I listed my home for $100k more than I had purchased it just 3 years before. While I knew I had done a lot of work to it, I was concerned about potential buyers understanding this. My agent told me that people spend less than 20 seconds viewing pictures of homes before deciding whether or not to schedule a visit.
John was recommended to me and I could not have been happier with the results. Less than 2 weeks after I listed the property, I had 3 competing offers and accepted an offer above my asking price!
In my 16 years as a Realtor in the Washington, D.C. area, I worked with only two photographers during that whole time. After relocating to the greater Daytona Beach area, I was concerned I wouldn't be able to find a photographer to match their skills and professionalism. Then I found John Kruger! He is highly skilled, experienced, takes pride in his work and easy to work with. John was responsive to my requests for specialty shots, efficient in his business practices - on time to appointment, responsive to emails and phone calls, great turnaround time for photos - and on top of all that he's a nice guy! You can't do better if you're looking for real estate photography in the Daytona Beach area!

Thank you so much!
Warm regards, NT
I have known John Kruger for over 14 years having worked with him in Rye, NY when both of us were sales associates and office managers. From June 2011 through August 2015 John was a free-lance real estate photographer for a number of the Coldwell Banker offices in lower Westchester County, NY. Many of the agents in my Larchmont and Scarsdale offices used John to not only photograph their listings but to help them design high end marketing pieces both for their listings and for themselves in self-marketing.
Since John was is a real estate salesperson himself, he understands that pictures do “speak a thousand words” so he takes great care to guarantee that the end product he produces shows the home in the best possible light. He has a great eye and gives the agent many angles to choose from to make sure that the agent never has to say, “I wish I had a picture of…”.
John is a pleasure to work with; he is sincere, pleasant, is extraordinarily conscientious and easy going. He gives the same attention to a small rental unit as he does to a multi-million-dollar waterfront luxury property. John also understands how hectic agent’s schedules can be so he tries very hard to accommodate their schedules; and while sellers are not normally present during a photo shot, on the rare occasions that they are John is very gracious and attentive to their needs
I highly recommend John not just for his photographic skills but because he is a professional that truly understands the real estate business and works with the agent to not only make their listing look its best but to have the agent look her/his best in front of their client.

I met John when I began my career as a photographer with Coldwell Banker. Not only was John my mentor, but he was and still is a great friend. John has taught me everything I know about photography, business, management and life. I could not be more grateful for the time that I spent with him, my only regret is that I did not meet him sooner. There is no doubt in my mind that I would not be the person I am today without John’s guidance and for that I am forever grateful. I know that John will succeed beyond expectations in anything he does and to say that anyone would be lucky to work with him is truly an understatement.
