I started June of 2016 and learned so much from your website. Before this, I had never touched a camera before. I watched a lot of YouTube tutorials and was determined to be the best I could be. I quit my full-time job in January 2017 and now I'm looking to hire to keep up with demand! Thank you for your inspiration and education via your website!!!

  1. Congratulations Jacob! I really liked your video, and what made it stand out to me was the narration. I really think that narrated real estate videos are the only way to go. It allows you to guide the viewer through the property in a planned and cohesive manner. Music alone can't do this. Great job!
