I realized the true significance of building my portfolio with Virtuance images when I was up against five other agents to get a listing. By providing all of my past listings, shot by Virtuance, I won the listing.

When I asked the client why they chose me over the others they said, “The photographer that you hired did an amazing job on your past listings – they all sold fast and at list price or above.”

All of my listings, including this one, have gone under contract within 30 days at or above list price. #Winning!

The Virtuance photos taken on my first shoot were nothing short of spectacular. In fact, I believe those real estate images are the key reason a bay area buyer, who drove by my listing, called to ask for the images followed by an immediate showing and an all cash offer. They bought it for full asking price which was at least $25,000 above market, all in a matter of 3 days!

I can go into a listing presentation with confidence knowing that Virtuance will put my listing in the best light possible. The quality of their photos is unmatched in my opinion.

For me, Virtuance was a Godsend. After my wife passed away from cancer at forty-nine years old, I needed to sell our home. The images from Virtuance helped me sell it professionally without hassle. Without Virtuance, I would not have been able to sell the number of homes that I did during those hard times.

Futhermore, I won an expired listing where the homeowner was very unhappy with the previous agent. By using Virtuance for the listing’s real estate images, I was able to sell the home for an even higher list price than the previous agent in 19 days.

With Virtuance by my side, I am able to sell my homes with an average of 98% sale price and 30 days shorter market time and receive at least twice the referrals.

Virtuance is a life saver for me because I can easily book online and choose the time frame that works for me. Prior to Virtuance, I was working with local photographers, which came with many scheduling conflicts between them and myself.

Virtuance took photos of one of my listings that was a renovation home. I was nervous about this particular shoot because the renovation wasn’t complete by the time the photographer arrived.

The Client Success Team and Virtuance photographer helped in more ways than I can imagine. They picked the perfect timing for sunlight and the photographer made the room seem larger by shooting from certain angles. The photos were crystal clear. Based on the listing images alone, I received two offers (without a showing) and once we had the open house, I received three more offers resulting in a bidding war.

Virtuance has greatly improved the quality of my brand and has helped me win more listings.


Matt Thomson | Fathom Realty

Prior to using Virtuance, I had challenges winning listings when up against brokerages who used a discount commission model. The lure of ‘saving money’ by paying a low flat fee blinded my potential sellers.

I realized the power of great real estate photography when an acquaintance of mine decided to list with a discount commission company rather than me. Initially, he just couldn’t get over the amount of money that he’d “save” using them.

The difference in commission was nearly $8,500 on this transaction. The original company used their “professional” photographer and his home sat on the market for weeks on end, which cost him over $7,000 in carrying costs.

He couldn’t believe how many more showings they had once his property really popped online with Virtuance.
