Today’s home buyers are armed with more information than ever. They tell their agents which homes they want to see — and they’ve already rejected listings with too few or poor quality photos. It is absolutely vital that your online listing has high-impact photos to make a lasting first impression and create a desire to see more.

1.  Professional PhotographsBeautiful, eye-catching photos are so important to      attract buyers who search online for your home. We take pride in teaming with      Punkyn Photography who takes the highest quality photos for the greatest impact and      to highlight your home’s BEST features.
2. DroneOur Camera-equipped quadcopter shoots high-def photos and video from      the air, to capture an impressive point of view of your home.
3. VideographyWe use high-quality video to create a compelling virtual tour of your      home that will capture buyers’ attention.
4. 3D TechnologyOur Miro3D partner’s camera features powerful new technology to      create a detailed 3D showcase of your home, for the ultimate virtual experience. With      this state of the art technology, home buyers can move through your property online      to see it from every angle. 3D Showcases are especially popular with our foreign      home buyers.
