When we asked our clients last month to share stories of the successes that Virtuance has helped create in their businesses, we were blown away by the response. We received hundreds of incredible stories! Here were a few highlights:
- 92% said they’ve seen a notable increase in showing activity
- 88% said they’ve won more listings since partnering with Virtuance
- 88% said they’ve sold listings faster!
Here’s Judi Hirsh’s winning story! Congratulations Judi!
“I had a listing that Virtuance did the photos for. I received an email from an HGTV show that they wanted to tape a show on my listing!
They saw the amazing pictures off the internet. Once I got an approval from the seller to agree for the show to be taped at my listing, the producer of the show asked me to do a cameo in my office with the host of the show, David Bromstad.
If my photos weren’t so amazing, I don’t think they would even recognize the listing. Since then I have used my photos to be blasted on social media.”
We had fun “WOWing” Judi with a big check!
Here are a few samples of some of the other incredible stories we heard! Thanks to the hundreds of you who shared, it makes us proud and humbled to serve and support the real estate community with such fantastic results!
“I obtained an expired listing that was on the market 83 days in 2016. The pictures were terrible and I knew all they needed was Virtuance.
We took new pictures without any different staging or changes. I increased the price by $10,000 over the previous list price. After 10 days we were under contract for full list price, no concessions and it was an all cash offer.
That’s the Virtuance difference.“
“A Seller was referred to me, after having a bad experience with another agent. She said her condo had only been shown 3x in 3 months and the agents excuse was “it was overpriced.”
When I took the listing, I explained to the seller that if they prepared the condo following the “Virtuance Pre-Shoot Checklist”, it would showcase the property to get top dollar.
I was confident in the photographers at Virtuance. The Seller received a full price offer the same day as the photos were uploaded on MLS. The only delay in accepting the offer was that I had an advertised Open House scheduled for next day.
The buyer who made the offer from the pictures showed up at the Open House, as well as many other buyers who also made offers. Everyone complimented me on the photos. The Seller received multiple offers! We opened escrow within 5 days of listing the property.
This is a perfect example of a Realtor’s ability to capitalize on their success, reputation and referral business with a minimal investment in Virtuance Professional Photography. It’s not only good for our personal real estate business but for our brand as Professional Realtors.”
“A recent listing generated 51 showings and ten offers within the first 48 hours of going active. The seller accepted an offer for $21,000 above list price and is ecstatic. Thanks Virtuance!”
“Ever since I started using Virtuance I have had great success in selling my listings. One of my repeat customers could not believe how fantastic their home looked in the pictures. Thanks to Virtuance pictures, I procured the buyer. They loved the way the pictures showed exactly what they were looking for in a home. I personally used Virtuance when selling my home. It helped tremendously based on feedback from the showings. I also end up selling for more money than other listings in the areas.”
“I used to think I took the best cell phone photos out there and then sent them thru Picassa and enhanced them… Virtuance came to my office and did a demonstration so I thought I would give it a shot (because they gave me 1 free photoshoot). My listing had multiple offers as soon as the pics were uploaded… so I tried it on another one and charged the Seller at closing – same thing happened! I started marketing my whole list of virtual tours on Facebook and started getting even more Sellers. Virtuance makes me and my company look AMAZING!”
