I've been creating virtual tours with the RTV's Software now since 2002. RTV far exceeds the competition in Virtual Tours. The one thing that stands out is Quality.

I went online looking for a quality virtual tour software product that could create flash panoramas and 360 tours. RTV had what I wanted and so much more.

This is a big "THANK YOU" to everyone at RTV. Everyone there has been so helpful and I just wanted others to know what great people are working there!!! I talked to Jason LaVanture first and he answered my questions about how to get started. We talked several times before I decided to try this new adventure; he was very informative and got me set up and ready to go. Next Ben got my camera ready to go and all set up. He has been helpful since with any camera questions or problems. After Ben got me set with my camera, John went through the training with me on the phone and I was ready to start. A couple of practice tours, and a presentation for a few realtors at one agency and I was hired to do several tours. I hope with each one I have improved. Morgan Makowski has been SOOOO helpful as I’ve started my tours; she has gone above and beyond in answering any and all questions or has let me know who to get in touch with to help. I just wanted everyone to know what GREAT people work at RTV and how they go out of their way to help you get started and be successful.

Thank you all!!!!

Success with RTV from a Real Estate Agent's Point of View

In early 2005 as the real estate market here in the Florida Keys started to slow, I could see I would have to brush up on my marketing skills and find better ways to expose my listings to potential buyers. With so many Florida Keys homes and condos sold as vacation homes, an online presence with great photos and virtual tours becomes essential. A few years earlier I was the first agent in our area to do virtual tours. I had tried the two-shot version but the results were not very good. Then the market got so hot, and properties were selling so fast, there was no real need to have tours. I could see the tide turning and I wanted to add virtual tours back to my listings so I started doing some research to find the best solution. After looking at a lot of low quality tours, I found RTV.

Having taken some photography courses in college, and with over 30 years in the real estate business taking photos of houses, I decided to do the tours myself. My first RTV tour was of one of the highest priced homes in Key Largo. Shortly after submitting it, I received a call from a buyer who said his wife had seen a virtual tour on the Internet and she wanted him to take a look at the property while he was in the Keys. During the showing he called his wife at home and told her to look at the virtual tour again. They decided then and there to make an offer. They ended up buying the property. The wife never came to see it until closing. The selling price was $3.7 million.

Since then there have been other situations where a buyer's partner or family member could not be present but the decision to go forward was based on the virtual tour. Many times in the course of showing one of my listings with an agent from another company, I hear the buyers talking about having seen the virtual tour on the Internet. It seems they find the listings and have their agent make the appointment which results in more showings and sales for my sellers. I have a contract pending on a property which is scheduled to close later this month. The buyers have never been inside the house. Asking price almost $3 million.

In spite of our market being down almost 50% in the number of sales, and the inventory being up almost 50% in the number of listings, this has been my best year ever in real estate with over $12 million in sales so far - and it is only April.

Thank you RTV for helping take my career to a new level.

I have had the best experience with RTV! They made it possible for me to come in to this business with no Virtual Tour Experience and create fantastic tours right off! The support RTV Provides backed with their personal service is better than I could have hoped for. I have a team of experts available to me whenever I need them! I am now on my way to building a successful Virtual Tour Business and know that I will always be able to produce what I promise because of the outstanding quality of the RTV product.

Thank you RTV!

Do you 'work' in order to take a vacation or do you take a vacation in order to 'work'. Creating virtual tours with RTV has enabled me to travel and 'work' at various locations throughout the country and experience what they have to offer. From resorts on the islands of Lake Erie, to top ranked golf courses in the Southwest and incredible lodgings in between, it's been an incredible adventure. I've met some great people, made new friends and am creating one heck of a referral network for all involved.

Of course, there are the realtors, builders and vacation home owners that keep me busy at home while I'm not traveling. But who can refuse free lodging, golf or meals in exchange for a reduced rate on a tour? I love being able to pick a destination, do some research and set up a virtual tour to shoot while I'm there! Bartering with virtual tours may not be for everyone but I sure love seeing the look in their eye when I dangle the worlds best virtual tour in front of a resort owner and having them just look at me and say, "And how long will you need to stay?"

2007 marks the 4th year that I'll be creating virtual tours with RTV Virtual Tour Company and I'm looking forward to many more. Thank You to everyone involved with the company and all the support/information/help you have provided to ensure a quality product... and lifestyle to go with!

Dear RTV,

So far everything has been grand, really glad that we went with you guys. You are very responsive, helpful, and the system is absolutely wonderful. Setup was easy and the learning curve very small, we just finished our first tour and are working on incorporating HDR photography in our tours to make the tours even better. The Virtual Tour Company Blog and your support forum are great. I will be posting soon. Can’t wait to see the new features, glad you guys are going to incorporate flash next month. I’m sure it will be faster and smoother. The business startup kit is great too. All of the info was a huge surprise and is going to save us a ton of time and money. Everything is golden here thanks for all your help. You guys do such great work!

Cheers to the RTV team!

I absolutely love the new RTV layout and interface! The new tour galleries and web sites along with all of the constant improvements make me proud to be affiliated with a company that is so on top of things.

My business is growing. I may have picked up a new Agency with about 10 agents today. The meeting went well. I may be contacting you in the next couple of months about bringing new dealers under me and expanding my virtual tour company. I think that my work and modern day techniques are finally catching up in the Alpena and Oscoda Michigan. If things happen the way I think they might, I may be needing some help. It is too early to predict, but my guts are telling me that I am right on target.

Hello RTV

When I first started looking into the virtual tour business I bought a 360 degree lens adapter for my camera. I took some pictures and viewed them, but when I called the company for further information none was available. I swore I would not get any type of stitching system, thinking it was too difficult but had very little choice in the matter. I was a bit skeptical when I chose RTV, but after receiving my gear I was in business immediately. I've been happy ever since. Keep up the good work.

Virtual Tour Provider

I became a RTV Full Service Provider after I researched many different virtual tour software solutions and purchased several different packages from virtual tour companies in the industry. RTV wins hands down! Their tours are truly INTERACTIVE and professional quality. Unlike other software that can distort images and give the 'fishbowl' effect, RTV offers a superior software solution that forgives even the most amateur of photographers and allows professional photographers to REALLY show off their work. In the last year my company has produced more than 170 tours for both commercial and real estate applications and that number is growing daily. On top of our own marketing efforts, RTV has sent us MANY qualified leads! 95% of all the leads that they send us result in an immediate order! To top the cake, their support staff is ON THE BALL!! A BIG thank you to Torie, Jon, Jacque (tour track), Ben and especially Jason for all of their training, support and attention to detail. I have been known to be a little 'fiery' and passionate about my business, but they have always answered my support requests promptly and professionally! I highly recommend their software to anyone who is even considering doing their own tours in-house OR starting a virtual tour company. You simply CANNOT beat the level of support or quality of software.

I came across RTV during a web search, since I had long ago purchased another program, and while trying to get information from the company about updates, etc., discovered that their web site was still up, but they had been out of business for over 6 months! So much for support.

After thoroughly researching other companies, I discovered RTV, and that is when I contacted you. During our discussion, you suggested that a great way for me to get started was to begin marketing the program, even though I was not signed up at the moment. With your help, and let me be emphatic here, it was real, genuine, full service help, I was able to begin marketing RTV's program, before becoming a dealer!

As I proceeded, I had questions. You either answered immediately, or got back to me very, very qujickly! That kind of customer support (and remember, I wasn't even a customer yet) is a real rarity in today's market. You answered every question, made several suggestions, even providing me with material to use. Simply amazing!

I've been in business since I was old enough to start a business, and I'm now able to collect all my "pay-ins" from the government, so you can imagine that I've been around the block once or twice. I've worked with many, many corporations and businesses over the years, and I can say that RTV ranks very much at the top of my experience.

Upon becoming a dealer, I've discovered that the entire company and all the employees I have thus far been in touch with, follow the same careful, considerate, pleasant, knowledgeable, rapid response kind of customer care that my sales rep gave me.

Perhaps I'm saying a bit too much, trying to really help people understand just what RTV embodies, but it is real, and, it is extremely unusual these days. I can only sum it up this way...if anyone out there is considering doing Virtual Tours, they would be making the mistake of a lifetime by not joining RTV. Having been an advertising photographer for 30 years, I think I'm in the position of being able to make that kind of judgement, both from a people perspective, and certainly from a technical vantage point. If someone is ready to get started, this company is their only right choice!

Thank you once again, from the bottom of my heart. You guys are fantastic!

Dear RTV,

I am so pleased with RTV. I've found your support team to be great and exceptionally prompt on answering my questions. The product that you have is exceptional and my clients really prefer my virtual tours over some of the other photographer's virtual tours. In fact, I've been contacted to re-do virtual tours because the agent wasn't happy with the other photographer's product. That tells me a lot about your product.

I researched virtual tour software and systems for a year before deciding on yours. I can say that I have not been disappointed by RTV. It probably is the best there is out there. No kidding. I am proud to be able to offer my clients the excellent product that your company has provided.

"RTV has given me the opportunity of a lifetime. It has allowed me to combine my marketing experience and my love of photography to create a full time business for myself. There's nothing more gratifying then running your own successful company. I love the fact that it is a dealership and not a franchise... we can set our own pricing for our market area, creating our own identity and brand. There’s nothing else like it out there! The member-only website has the business and marketing tools to get you started right away. And the support is fantastic-you are never alone to fend for yourself... the staff at RTV is always willing to answer your questions. Thanks Jason for helping me build a rock solid future!"

I appreciate the way you conduct your business and look forward to a long term relationship with your company.

Dear RTV,
Just wanted to get back to you about how the 'Virtual Tour' Software
is doing for us...GREAT! The training for very informative and
EXTEMELY helpful. I was able to complete my first tour the very next
day. I had a few questions while completing my first tours and your
help desk wonderful. If they were not immediately available they
returned my call in a timely manner and was able to resolve any issues
I had during our conversation. I have found the software very easy to
use and a big plus in getting interests in my listings. The transition
to Realtor.com was seamless. All of the different URL options meet our

Dear RTV,
After several months of searching the various virtual tour products available we selected RealTour Vision to upgrade for our current Egg system. At Goldsmith Team GMAC Real Estate our first priority is always providing premier service to our customers. Realtour Vision is by far the best product for maintaining that level of service. We were impressed with several features of the software including the ability to take partial 360 shots. The downloadable flyer and large viewing area convinced us this was the right choice for our company.

In today's market about 30-40% of a realtors business will come for the internet, with a tool like RTV we show the customer the quality they can expect when doing business with us. I will also mention the support staff is great, many thanks to Ben, he is a great asset to your company and his knowledge of the software is fantastic.

I can certainly recommend the system to any company thinking about doing there own virtual tours. Feedback from our agents has been great, they love the clarity of each scene and the ability to have there personal contact information on the screen.

The last thing I want to mention is the variety of links, the most important being the MLS unbranded. Our board only allows virtual tours to be unbranded, this one feature alone is reason enough to use RTV.

For me to tell you that the newly upgraded tour window is great is an understatement! I was working with a potential new realtor client who was leaning towards a competitor due to her liking of their window's appearance and navigation compared to RTV's older window which was still shown in my web portfolio.

I advised her of the upgrade, sent her a sample with the new window and earned her business that week! I've since upgraded the links on my site to show all samples in the new virtual tour format. Thanks to RTV for being on top of your game and providing your dealers with the most professional looking packages available!

Thank You so much for the recent changes to the tour layouts! It looks incredible! There are so many changes and new features, my favorite being the new music selection! It's great to have so many choices! I have been getting a lot of positive feed back from my clients as well. One big hit with them is the link “View my Tour Gallery” Thank You all so much for the new layout, all the hard work you put into working with us dealers & the great tech support as well . Keep up the good work and thanks a million!"

"I recently completed an assignment from RTV's "Tour Track" program, which introduced me to a corporate client wanting 14 virtual tours. It was a terrific boost to my business that month, and I was able to complete the job in two days, shooting different residences on the army base at Fort Lewis, Washington. What a great idea! The virtual tours allow relocating soldiers and their families to choose their new housing online from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. I really look forward to more Tour Track corporate work and experiences as rewarding as this one."

"Dear RTV,

I just want to THANK everyone at RTV (RTV!)

When I started research on virtual tours I found myself extremely confused, RTV made the process simple.

Everyone was helpful. From sales to training. I have had a great deal of compliments on our tours! The great thing is you don't have to be a professional photographer to do a tour. It's that easy!

Thanks again RTV, Home Source Realty and all its associates love your product, software, and company.

Sincerely, Polly Johnson"

"Dear RTV,

I just wanted to take a minute and provide some feedback to you now that I am up and running with RTV.

I can not say enough good things about my entire experience with RTV. Beginning with the GREAT support and patience you had with me during the pre-sales support and questions and more questions. You always had answers in timely fashion and all answers proved to be correct and accurate after I actually made the purchase and received the product.

The software installation support and training were all very organized and I never once felt like I was wasting my time or being forced to go through something that I already understood. The trainer worked with me and went along at my own pace. When I did have questions he was extremely knowledgeable about the product and was able to answer my questions in great detail so that I understood exactly what I needed to do and could do it correctly.

The equipment that I received was very good as were the directions on how to use it.

Within a day of my training session I was able to complete my first virtual tour with out any problems. The software is very easy to use and getting the completed product uploaded to your site is a snap.

I know I will get better and better the more I use it, but the fact that I could do it on my own without having to call someone after only about 2 hours of training was GREAT!!! I have a LOT to learn about cameras and taking pictures but with your system I am able to create very nice virtual tours already and will only get better as I learn more about taking pictures.

Thanks for a great product, great support and a great company which is very hard to find these days.

Sincerely,
Tim P. Schutte"

Dear RTV,

My husband and I started doing business with you in March and have truly been having a great time producing virtual tours for our clients. We still find it amazing that we have such fun AND get paid for it! Steve will be eligible for early retirement soon and we intend to transition into doing this business full time, so this year we're taking it slow and building our credibility in the local business community. We've done very little marketing because we honestly only have time to work with a few realtors, but they're very happy with our tours and the service we've given them, and we're delighted that they've been agreeable to our learning as we go!

Currently we have an opportunity to provide virtual tours of a variety of tourist venues for our local Chamber of Commerce through a state grant and we are SO excited about this project! We'll be contacting David Edwards your VP of Sales and Marketing this week to ask him for his input as we develop the presentation, and we know he'll be a great help to us as he has been in the past.

Your staff has been nothing but wonderful as we've gone through this learning process, and that's a major reason why we're so pleased to be working with you. We look forward to a long and fruitful business relationship with you in the future!

Cordially,

Real Tour Vision Has A "Wow" Factor
First I want to say "awesome company" Real Tour Vision.
Sent a agent a CD and company information, about a week ago. Agent is so busy and doesn't have time to meet with people so she sends her assistants to handle meetings. Met with assistant this morning. She had met with 2 other virtual tour providers before myself. She complimented how wonderful and impressive the CD looked, all the bells and whistles that Real Tour Vision had to offer and said that our tours were by far the best she has seen. She sent me a thank you note before I had a chance to send her one. Real Tour Vision Rocks.

I'm a Tire Expert and a Photographer, I decided to Re-Tire from Tires and follow my passion in Photography. I found that RTV has much more to offer than just photography. RTV is Powerful Marketing tools, RTV is Business tools, RTV is Web Savvy, RTV is SEO (Search Engine Optimization), RTV is Education, RTV is helpful & Friendly in all ways, RTV is EASY, YES RTV IS Photography too, the list goes on. After extensive research into this industry, I was convinced to join RTV. So, I jumped in with both feet, I took on the complete dealer program (FusionMax FX). This includes software, equipment, and the tools to be successful. As big as RTV is, the thing I like most, is their ability to micro-manage their business. It’s like they are your friends, friends that can help you get your business up and running and help keep you running. Thanks RTV.
