Our Story -
In 1993, the internet was in its infancy and the concept for reelestates.com was born. Videos of real estate seemed like an obviously useful service and exceptional marketing tool. Although initially a daunting task, we were able to put about 30 seconds of highly compressed footage online. But the time involved in doing so, sending it and viewing it, combined with the expense of the equipment, talent and broadband would not support a business model... So, on the shelf it went.
Several years later, with the introduction of Apple's Quicktime and Sony's revolutionary new digital camera the VX1000 we re-evaluated our concept and decided to bring it to market. In 1996, reelestates.com was launched. The early videos were distributed on VHS tapes and we gave our customers a 30 second online version that took about 30 minutes to download on dial up. T-1 lines were strictly for the big corporations and DSL was not even in the horizon. At that time there was no other virtual tour service in the country and one could say that we were still ahead of our time.
With some seed money and a few years under our belt, reelestates.com had hit the ground running serving South Florida from our new Miami headquarters. The dot com boom was in full effect and we were in the forefront of this technology. Jo-Ann Forster, Esther Percal, Carlos Justo and many other legendary South Florida Agents signed on and began producing videos of every listing. Miami's Top Producers had a secret weapon and it was reelestates.com. The rich & famous of South Florida were buying & selling real estate off of the thousands of VHS video tapes and online videos that were circulating. A Wimbish Riteway/Sotheby's deal followed and we focused on pioneering a new field and gaining market share. Soon, Homeadvisor™ (Microsoft) came calling but ultimately it was not meant to be... the dot com bust was looming and that sent us back to the drawing board with a focus on restructuring a sustainable and profitable business.
Today, reelestates.com continues to produce exceptional films for the luxury real estate market. From Luxury Developments and Vacation Rentals to the most exclusive waterfront estates and condominiums, our videos are the most powerful marketing tool available and dollar for dollar, an incomparable value.

We look forward to being a big part of your successful marketing strategy and scheduling your next shoot.
