Secrets to Creating Winning Videos

Posted by Kevin McElroy on Jun 21, 2021 11:00:00 AM

PSAR Tech lunch and learn

Mike White, Chairman of the PSAR tech committee will teach you the secrets to creating winning videos with your Camera or drone.

Virtual open houses using video from a laptop or cell phone are likely to become a standard real estate industry practice long after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.

“As realtors, we need to become proficient with the technology so we can get the listing and better serve our clients. Homeowners are more likely to list with an agent who offers video marketing to help sell their home," Mike White.

Guest speaker, Steve Buice will feature two new apps that can benefit REALTORS® with producing virtual open houses. These apps are ideal for real estate agents, MLS postings and social media mass texting.
