Augmenting your Virtual Reality

Real Estate Agent with Progressive Realty (Boise Idaho) DB-17066

I am honored to be one of the featured speakers for the Residential Real Estate Council's Sell-A-Bration 2021 RE-CONNECT on February 11, 2021.


I will be covering the following topics:

  • Virtual (Digital) Signatures
  • Virtual Meetings
  • Using Virtual Backgrounds
  • Virtual Staging
  • 3D Interactive tours
  • Save $ on instead of drone photos

This class is geared specifically to using these tools in your real estate business.

Feel free to use the 20% off promo code: JP20

I am also willing to teach this class (live or virtually) to your brokerage or association.  It can be a summary level for a half hour class or more detailed at an hour.

I welcome comments on how you use Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in your real estate business as well. If you have something really cool and awesome, I might even ask persmission to share that with others.

Augmented reality is pretty cool if done correctly they love the ideas overall.

Here is a fun photo I made using Augmented Reality while my wife was getting chemo.  I thought she needed a few super hero's that day to keep watch over her. :)

I haven't been to a Sellabration in years. I may attend and use your code. Thanks Julie

Julie A. Black you should try to make it.  They are great networking and a nice way to travel and write it off.  The first Sell-A-Bration I went to was in Honolulu.  That was so long ago, I can't even find anything online telling me how far back it was.

I have a busy day on Feb. 11 so may have to miss the virtual Sellabration RE-Connect - sure do miss being to see everyone in person. Maybe Lake Tahoe in August?

Woud love to hear you present at our Zoom sessions in March.

Jim Paulson

Thanks Jeff Dowler, CRS You should have a fairly good idea on some of it since your franchise is one that understands it's power.  My company has been pretty much virtual since inception about 12 years ago.  I will schedule it here on AR for one of our Zoom calls.  Hope to see you in Tahoe!

Thanks Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP I sure miss the CRS events and the old RainCamps.  I was really looking forward to doing the class live in Nashville this month so people could try the VR headsets with some of the 3D tours.  Look forward to going Zoom Zoom with you.

Not yet but, I will probably get in at the last minute! I have a MD relocation buyer coming into town that week and I'll be doing my best to find them something FAST! LOL

As you know Debe Maxwell, CRS the best way to get busy in this business is try to schedule a trip.  Close them so we can chat in person in South Lake Tahoe.

Jim, I had this Condo for a while and needless to say I could not convince the seller to stage the place..... I ended up doing virtual staging and here we are in Escrow:)Endre

Feb 04, 2021 10:21 PM
Jim Paulson

Do you have any before and after photos?  If so, I would possibly use them in this or a future presentation.  I would think a condo in Beverly Hills might show better than a condo here in Boise. I would love to see the photos and know which company you used.  I am in discussions with one know on incorporating virtual staging into my Matterport 3D tours. Best of luck on closing Endre Barath, Jr.
