Video is the tool, and these are the artists...

Lane Bailey, blogged about our company the other day and I thought I would share his kind words. Lane is a top notch Realtor and one of the best social networkers in the country so it's an honor to have him as a friend and a client.

This blog comes on the heels of a new release for Reel Productions TV.  We have been asked over and over again to travel for our videos so we have come up with a creative option that we are launching next week :-)  This will give everyone, nationwide, the opportunity to have quality videos at their fingertips! I'll keep you posted.  

For buyers, getting to know a home is part of the process.  Seeing it, feeling it, walking around the taking it in...  That is great if you are around the corner, or even across town... but what if you are unable to take that time to tour scores of properties before pulling the trigger?  Maybe you are a busy executive, maybe you are relocating and have a day or three in a strange town to buy a house...  Maybe you just want more than 8 (or 12 or 16) pictures from the MLS. 

Video is one of the solutions.  It is part of a complete marketing package for a home...

And there is a local business that I trust to handle MY video needs.  And, as with any tool, it isn't the tool that makes the difference as much as the craftsperson that wields it.  Reel Productions is based here in the Atlanta area, although they travel the country providing top-notch video services for clients large and small. 

Their bread and butter is video tours of homes.  They range from the elaborate, hosted tours to simpler productions with voice-overs.  Here are a couple of examples. 

The people responsible for this are Tara Jones and TJ Hedges.  They launched the company a little over a year ago.  Soon after, they produced one of the videos above, the hosted one of 9010 Brixham Court in Laurel Springs (Suwanee, GA).  I have worked with them on several projects since then, and each time they have met and exceeded my expectations. 

Simply put, if you are selling a home, you NEED to have a video on the home's website.  Buyers are visual, and want to see pictures and videos and everything else they can get their eyes on...  And I think that the quality of the video Tara and TJ provide is exceptional... AND it is reasonable.  Ok, if they have to fly to your town then it might not be as reasonable unless you have several properties for them to shoot at one time, but if you are around Atlanta, they have excellent rates. 

One other little thing...  Tara and TJ are people that really care about their clients... both agents and consumers.  They previously produced a series of videos on using tools likr the Flip Video camera.  They are in the process now of producing a series of videos for sellers on how to better prepare their properties for sale.  Tara gave me the advance word on this while we watched my 5 year old on the ice for hockey camp... 

I guess I should list some of their other services...  Community Profiles, Video Business Cards, Business Profiles, Agent/Broker Profiles...  You get the idea.  Whether the purpose of the video is to have website content for a business or a listing, or a TV commercial, they can make it happen.  Both Tara and TJ come from a TV news background and they are award winning journalists.
