Can you believe this? Jeff Turner demonstrated his Real Estate Shows at my company office last Tuesday. I read his name on the intro slide, and I thought "I know that guy!" But I didn't see his shaved head anywhere. It turned out that it was a webinar and he was in Cali at the time. It was still very nice to hear him in real time and I even got to ask him a question. I bet Jeff still doesn't know where O'Fallon, IL is on the map.
I've seen Real Estate Shows hundreds of times here on AR, but I haven't bought into it since I have a friend who offers a more extensive home tour. However, Real Estate Shows is now offered by my company, so I might as well use it.
I just sold this property and thought I would create a show for my buyers to share with their families and friends. Check it out...
It's fairly easy to use even for me. Downloading the pictures didn't take much time, and adding/editing titles is painless--nine pictures, nine short descriptions. What took time for me was choosing the appropriate music since I wanted to hear most of the samples...yeah, my problem not the the show.
In addition, creating a flyer for it is simple, limited only by the short list of choices. I haven't created a listing flyer yet--that will take more time since it's just like filling out the MLS data sheet only in a much shorter version.
What I like the most is the ability to preview the show at any stage of creation. Being a visual person, that means a lot. I think Jeff bent over backward to provide the most use for the show, i.e. offering different options for embedding with branded and unbranded versions, strict MLS compliant show, different HTML versions to fit just about any platform like Wordpress, or AR where they differ, and custom web sites. There are other features offered, but I have limited time. You can create as many shows as you're able--for the price, it's well worth it--and it leaves quite an impression on your clients.
Finally, I'm not sure if the Real Estate Shows was created initially just for real estate, but it's obvious that it has expanded to a wider utilization for things like seasonal greetings, and special occasions...and why not? It's a great tool.
