Virtual Tours News
Making the decision to take on and startup a Real Tour Vision dealership was
a very easy one to make. It all happened on a chilly October day when Susan
Hintz called me up to inform me that she had just landed the opportunity of
a lifetime that she could not pass up.
At this point Susan was our local
virtual tour provider
for Traverse City and had spent the last five years in the business
building relationships and making connections through her virtual tour
company. Susan averaged anywhere from 40-80 virtual tours a month depending
on the time of the season and every year her business grew along with her
network. Susan landed her big fish when
Al Rice, a Traverse
City real estate agent asked her to enter into a partnership with her.
Upon acceptance Susan would instantly acquire a shared interest in all of
his current listings as well as take on all of the technology roles and
marketing of his local real estate business. Susan’s years of assisting
local real estate agents in the marketing of their properties had finally
As soon as I hung up the phone I was very happy for Susan’s success. The
fact that the owner of a virtual tour company and property marketing partner
would be a top choice for one of the areas most successful real estate
agents was proof that the Real Tour Vision business model was working
perfectly and our dealers were growing and expanding their businesses. Our
dealers were indeed looked upon as the local online marketing experts by the
real estate agents and business owners they serviced. But now what? Now
there would be a huge hole right in our own back yard. How could Real Tour
Vision not have a virtual tour provider in
Grand Traverse? How would that look to our competitors?
For years our virtual tours of
Traverse City had been keeping the Circlepix and Obeo photographers
driven out of the area. Many had tried and many had failed. What would
happen now I wondered? It was at that exact moment that a light went off and
the idea swept through my head. Over the last eight years I have sat behind
my desk working long hours and setting up over a thousand virtual tour
providers worldwide. I had walked many of our largest virtual tour dealers
through the process of setting up a local and sometimes regional virtual
tour company. I offered up consulting to them as each of them grew their
company and many of the providers looked to me for the answers to their
marketing and strategic questions. Who better to get back in that saddle and
push the local TC
virtual tour company than
It had been nearly nine years since I looked through the monitor of a camera
tipped on its side. The smooth click of the steel ball bearing moving from
one detent of the rotator disc to the next was nearly a faded memory. I was
the first virtual tour company in Traverse City that offered still image
technology. I had been the virtual tour guy, as they called me back then;
the Internet Cowboy who drove IPIX out of the area. Now it was time once
again. It was time to saddle up and put my new theory, procedures and
strategy to the real test. But how could I possibly do this and still have
time for Real Tour Vision? I already worked ten to twelve hour days making
sure I was leading the Real Tour Vision network down the path to victory. I
was already stretched for time. To do this right, to give this a fighting
chance, I would need help. I would have to find someone to run and manage my
virtual tour company. And so began my quest to setup shop and find this
person to run and manage my virtual tour
business in Northern Michigan.
