When I first discovered RealTour Vision what impressed me was the quality of the Tours. The see-through windows were AMAZING. What HOOKED me was the incredible treatment we received and continue to receive from the corporate side of RTV. Never have we felt like a burden or that our questions were bothersome. Since starting my business I have found something even more amazing than these first 2 discoveries... the Network of Dealers! On the forums I have seen people from all over the world banding together to help each other succeed in this business I have come to know and love. I have even relied on the forums for answers to my own questions as I learned my way around Tour Photography and Building. Along my path I have talked with many different RTV dealers; some more than once, a handful countless times! Names many of you know as regular "posters" to the forums and some not so frequent.
In the beginning while I was struggling to perfect my method, Dawn Shaffer from All About Virtual Tours was incredibly helpful. Her tips on post photo editing are some of the most valuable lessons I have learned to date. Without her willingness and patience to help new dealers like myself learn, my tours would not be where they are now!
As I continue to grow and learn, Ken Bowman from In And Out Services has become my most valuable "mentor". The time he has spent answering my questions, whether they be about Photography, Tour Building, Business operations or most recently Web Design, and the patience he has shown with regards to the number of emails I have sent shows what a Top Notch person we have in our midst! I am truly grateful for everything he has shared! My tours and my business are better for his influence.
Real Tour Vision advertises that they have the Leading Tour Technology, and they do - without a doubt. This is not, however, their only #1 Asset. Certainly their network of dealers is equally as valuable as the technology itself!
I'm proud to be among this network. One day, I hope to be in a position where I am able to "pay it forward" to another RTV dealer just starting out on what has proven to be one of the best journeys of my life!
