Selling a home has many facets. Trey Freeze of Martha Williams Group at Williams Trew Real Estate is multidisciplinary.
After working in the real estate industry for over 20 years and establishing himself as one of Fort Worth’s most respected real estate photographers, Freeze is re-licensed and ready to tap into his wealth of knowledge and experience.
“There are so many real estate agents out there, and everybody knows seven to ten real estate agents. , and having a large network of realtors, I have great relationships,” Freese says.
How did you get started in real estate photography?
Tray Freeze: So I had my license for 22 years. I’ve always been in real estate because I got it very early when I was in school in Austin.
When I moved back to Fort Worth to get closer to my family, I was looking for a place where I could continue my business while being creative. I loved real estate and creativity. I asked a real estate friend if he used a photographer and he said yes. He told me, “I guarantee people will use you if you get it.”
I bought camera gear and taught myself on YouTube. I approached Martha Williams and asked if I would like to try it, and she said, “Absolutely!” She loved my first job so much that she started using me and all the agents under her started using me.
What motivated you to reactivate your license?
Freezing: I have been in the photography business for 14 years and have worked for most of the top agents in Fort Worth and the West. They always asked me about the price and what I thought of the house.
For years they have been talking to me about real estate. I have been in so many homes over the years that I have a unique perspective. I just thought, I have such a unique perspective that I need to get back there.
I was looking for the right opportunity to get back into the real estate industry and saw the market starting to normalize again. I just thought, now is the perfect time for meI took the opportunity to reinvent myself. I can now create the life I want for my son. You can do it for your clients too.
These people are starting a new chapter in their lives. That’s what I’m really excited about. To help people start a new chapter.I am an empathic person and I understand what people are going through. I’m excited to help people make that transition.
What makes Williams Trew stand out?
Freezing: Joined Martha Williams’ team at Williams Trew. Martha is one of Fort Worth’s most respected and longest-serving realtors. And she’s one of the nicest, most down-to-earth people in the world.I have worked with her for a long time [taking pictures]and I had a great relationship with her and her assistants, so I thought she would be the first person I would ask. I want to welcome you,” he said.
For me, it’s about who has the most respect, who does the most business, and she is. William Trew has been in business for a long time and is well respected around town.
Do you enjoy other formats of photography too?
Freezing: that’s right. I love taking pictures of animals. When I take pictures of farms and ranches, I am drawn to horses, cows and donkeys. I don’t know what I like about horses, but I love taking pictures of them and being around them.
There are also some landscapes that I really like. For example, if I go outside and see a really beautiful sunset, I take a picture.
What hobbies do you enjoy outside of real estate?
Freezing: I have been involved in music all my life. I come from a long line of musicians. I play guitar and mandolin. I go to a lot of concerts and try to be around music as much as possible when I’m away from work.
I also try to spend as much time as possible with my son, whether it’s playing basketball or going to the park or lake.
