I used to think Lake Martin Voice Realty was pushing the forefront in real estate video until I saw the video below of a property in Napa from Realty World’s Christine Dwiggins. Wow!
Sure, they had a huge budget and hired actors and a production company. But can’t I do the same thing in a small volunteer way?
Aren’t there some of my friends that would volunteer to be in my listing videos? Or local aspiring actors to tap? So I guess the real title of this post should be, “Do my friends love me enough to act in my real estate videos?”
These are the type of videos I’m impressed with. The production quality is great. There are a lot of agents nationwide that are working very hard to give their clients serious exposure. I saw an interview with Christine Wiggins about this Napa video, and she said they filmed for 16 hours to get all the shots they needed. And that was just the filming.
So I’m trying to learn from people like Christine. Even though I’m the only Lake Martin Realtor who currently creates video tours for all listings, I can still improve. I’ve been using video since 2007, and while some of those early clips make me cringe, I had to start somewhere. See these 2 videos, both of the same home I sold in 2007, and again in 2012. My narrator had clearly not discovered coffee in the first version. I’d like to think there has been some growth in all aspects of production. But in 2007, the idea of a video tour seemed revolutionary.

Sure, it’s more work, but I truly believe video tours tell a more complete story of a property.
So who’s in for the acting gig? Comment below and let me know if you’re available. I pay in Lake Martin Crazy gear, but your exposure will hopefully be tremendous. Just this past month (Dec. 26 – Jan. 24), my YouTube viewers spent 2, 363 minutes watching my real estate videos. That is pretty strong for what is considered an off season for Lake Martin real estate.
