We Get Compliments Every Day!
Hello HomeScenes.com: "We have been Re/Max Realtors for the past 23 years and clearly remember doing our buiness without the aid of the Internet, fax machines, or pictures of the property (except the one of the exterior of the home taken by the Atlanta, GA FMLS)... can you even imagine that? Look what we now have to help market and sell our listings - pictures and video of the entire property, and in our opinion HomeScenes.comdoes it better than any other company!
As we compliment the quality of your work, we know you cannot successfully run any business without a proficient and qualified work force that represents you and your company - and the purpose of this letter is to shine the spotlight on two outstanding members of your staff. Andrea is just the absolute best - always pleasant, professional, extremely knowledgeable, kind, patient and most generous with her valuable time. Above all, Andrea is completely dedicated to delivering superior Agent Support Services and has always demostrated a willingness to help me when I've needed her kind assistance, so be sure to take good care of this very valuable asset!
There are not enough words of praise for the talents and abilty of Photographer Kevin... he is just an amazing "media specialist", and we have no doubt that his fabulous pictures were directly responsible for our listings to go from Active to SOLD in record time! We did have some experience working with other media companies before we found HomeScenes.com, so we know our opinion of the superior, outstanding work that Kevin delivers is definitely accurate! The quality of Kevin's work is clearly "above" average of others in his field, and he deserves special recognition and rewards for his extra efforts and the attention to detail his work highlights.
We're confident you have already identified the contributions Andrea and Kevin have made to the success and growth of your company, and we trust you will acknowledge their value, and do whatever it takes to keep them in your organization! In closing, we wish you much future success and hope the economy recovers quickly so we can all return to the prosperity of those "good old days" we enjoyed in the past."Terri & Dick Domm - RE/MAX Greater Atlanta
"HomeScenes.com is the virtual tour company that I have used since they first opened their doors many years ago! Every home I have listed has a virtual tour on HomeScenes.com! I believe HomeScenes.com is "head and shoulders" above any virtual tour company in the USA! My activity is incredible even in these difficult times! I receive weekly Activity Reports that I send to my clients so they can see and review the tour activity. HomeScenes.com also has a subscription service for just $29.99 a month for an UNLIMITED amount of virtual tours, PLUS they offer many more great products and services! The owners of HomeScenes.com are always looking for ways to help the agents make more $$ and NOW they are helping agents get their listings on social networks including YouTube... which is just brilliant! When I go on a listing appointment I ALWAYS ask the homeowner to DO their homework prior to meeting me at their home.. (that homework is to go to my web site and check out all my virtual tours so they can see how their home will look to the world if they choose me as their listing agent) then I instruct them to go to any other agent who they are talking to and COMPARE! I seldom loose a listing that I want to take! Check out HomeScenes.com for yourself!"Dick Runstadler - RE/MAX Greater Atlanta
"To be successful in a down market such as what we're experiencing today, I have to consider the best use of my marketing dollars. HomeScenes.com Virtual Tours is a practical and affordable way to enhance the desirability of my listings and capture the attention of today's savvy online customers. As a professional agent in the Atlanta market, I'm determined to be proactive rather than to wait for the tide to turn. That's just not an option for me. I can't imagine taking a listing without providing a virtual tour. HomeScenes helps me get more listings and sell more homes! HomeScenes.com professional still images has helped me SELL more than 60 homes in the last two rears. I'm, without question, a satisfied customer!" Lisa Santa Ana - Weichert Realtors Preferred
Hello HomeScenes.com:"In the past two years I have had MORE customers from using the HomeScenes.com touring system than any other source! You are my Number 1 Virtual Tour Vendor! Thanks for all you do!" Eileen Leone of RE/MAX Elite
Hello HomeScenes.com: I wanted to pass along my thanks for a job well done. Your photographer did a great job, and my clients are very pleased with the virtual tour they can view on-line. The HomeScenes representative, Jay, met with our office to provide an overview of many of the HomeScenes services. His knowledge of the Real Estate industry was apparent as he presented some effective uses for your products. Jay also took ownership of several questions I had, being a new user of your services. His follow-up was excellent and timely. I would and will recommend HomeScenes services to any agent seeking outsourcing for their listing virtual tours and web solutions. Michael T. Martino, Keller Williams Realty
Hello HomeScenes.com: "We were pretty picky with our homesearch as we had no intention of moving again for at least a couple of decades. We spent a lot of time on real estate websites, trying to narrow the physical search we would have to undertake with our realtor. We found NO BETTER WEB SITE than HomeScenes.com. The detail and multiple views of the properties allowed us to spend a short amount of time on-line viewing homes for sale rather than spending countless hours driving to and walking through homes. This web site is pure class and exceptionally reliable. We found a beautiful home through HomeScenes.com and have been referring friends there ever since!" Home Buyer: Mark Hoerrner of Kennesaw, Georgia
Dear HomeScenes.com..."I have been in real estate for many years and with the advent of home buyers doing their own online home searches, even when using an agent, I could see the advantage of adding virtual tours to my listings. I did my research and discovered that HomeScenes.com had the winning advantage of reaching out to the public BETTER than anything else that was available. I decided that I would order the virtual tours on ALL my listings. I recently listed a starter home and I felt that it would be a slow sale. Shortly after listing the home, I received a phone call from a lady in Palm Beach, FL. She found my listing on the HomeScenes.com web site... she promptly called one of her Atlanta friends to personally walk through the home and describe it to her over the phone. The buyer insisted on writing a contract with me via the telephone, at FULL price and sight unseen. For fear of the deal falling through, I suggested that the buyer travel to Atlanta to personally view the home prior to the closing date. She stated that the home was perfect and given that the HoneScenes.com Virtual Tour was so perfectly matched to her friends description, that she would be happy to close without seeing the home in person. Shortly we successfully closed and I have kept in contact with this client, who is still very happy in her "Camelot!" Thank You HomeScenes.com I can't thank your excellent staff and responsive Agent Support Services enough!" Vickie Brown of Red Oak Realty
Dear HomeScenes.com..."Fantastic News! My HomeScenes.com Virtual Tour located in prestigious Hunt Cliff Community just went to closing! The purchasers saw the Virtual Tour on the HomeScenes.com web site and they called me to make an appointment to see the home! You had a big part in selling this home! Thank You Very, Very Much!" Betsy Rebol of Harry Norman Realtors
Dear HomeScenes.com..."HomeScenes.com is my Virtual Tour Provider of choice! I am never disappointed and I always receive friendly and reliable service! Whenever you have a question someone in customer service or technical support will promptly return your call with an answer! If I was Clark Howard (Atlanta area consumer expert) I would pick the HomeScenes.com Web Site as NUMBER ONE for being the Best Virtual Tour Provider who produces the Best Virtual Tours and offers the Best Service resulting in an unbeatable Virtual Tour Value!" Keep up the great work! The Malm-Cluett Team - Barbara L. Malm and Ken Cluett of Jenny Pruitt Associates
I posted a virtual tour of my listing in Marietta, GA on HomeScenes.com and before I could get the table flyers printed a buyer saw the tour on-line and fell in love with the home. Within ten days of posting the home on HomeScenes.com we had a contract! The buyers felt that touring the home on HomeScenes.com was like actually being there in person! Thank You HomeScenes! Sheila Jones of Coldwell Banker Buckhead Brokers
"While I was home in Philadelphia with the childern, HomeScenes.com allowed me to go on-line with my home computer and tour one of the homes my wife was touring at the same time in the Atlanta area with her Realtor. I knew from the multiple quality photos that this home was definitely a possibility and we subsequently purchased it after the Realtor drove my wife to several other homes. I wished I could have toured all the other homes "on line". We could have saved my wife and the Realtor a lot of time, money and frustration! Thanks, HomeScenes.com Your "full virtual tour concept" makes a lot of sense"! William Stratton, Philadelphia, PA
"HomeScenes.com is fantastic! My buyers and sellers love it! The digital quality of pictures and full touring of the inside as well as the outside of the home makes the HomeScenes.com system a superior concept. Using HomeScenes.com to showcase my listings has significantly increased my sales! Many of my Realtor associates are also utilizing the very cost effective and highly professional HomeScenes.com system"! Cynthia Moorehead of ReMax Northwest
For several months our home was listed for sale with two different agents and did not sell. We listed with a third agent who uses The HomeScenes.com System and within three weeks we had a contract from a young couple moving to Atlanta from Chicago. They found the virtual tour of our home on HomeScenes.com and immediately fell in love with our home. We highly recommend to all of our friends and family that they use our agent who uses HomeScenes.com. Oliver & Sandra Williams - Atlanta, GA
