3D VR Walkthrough is not your average real estate marketing company. I had a moment of awe when I was chatting with Owner Keith Hardke: having taken a peek at the incredible, eagle-eye videos of homes and various properties, I felt like I was right there inside the homes, soaring through. While each presentation was new, the quality and precision were impeccable. Even more amazing is that Keith puts this all together in one appointment, which is an invaluable asset for any busy real estate professional or business owner.
“We provide state of the art marketing for residential and commercial properties in one appointment,” explains Keith. “Our all-in-one real estate marketing package caters to the most traditional means of real estate marketing, including cutting-edge ways for REALTORS® to showcase their listings. Whether you are targeting investors, out-of-towners, or local Charlotte residents looking to sell quickly, we can help.”
Keith’s 3D VR bundled “all-in-one” package also includes HDSLR photos, an Immersive Walkthrough Tour (as if you’re inside the home), an unbranded MLS marketing video, and a 2D detailed room-by-room floor plan including heated and unheated square footage and drone pictures. Other options are aerial and walkthrough combo videos, 3D Floor Plans, and Virtual Staging. They also have the certified equipment to update subdivisions or lots on Google Street View.
Life is getting busier by the second, and technology can be the key to making transitions like buying a home less stressful. What happens when a client’s spouse is not able to make a listing, yet they are the key decision maker? Or clients are out of town and need to make a decision timely? A statistic on the 3D VR Walkthrough website notes that 40% of buyers have purchased without physically seeing the property. How? They utilized a viewing through virtual reality. With a “360 interactive Matterport tour,” the out-of-town spouse or even both clients can experience a home showing from any location.
Attention to details can be critical within real estate marketing. With clients now searching properties online, it’s essential to know that the photos they see on sites such as Google Earth are up to date and accurate. With Google street view certifications, you can avoid seeing older, unflattering pictures of a property listing.
With so many options in marketing available, Keith wants his REALTOR® partners to know he is always looking for the most innovative ways to market properties. “We are always at the forefront of this rapidly-changing industry. We have successfully marketed entry-level to multimillion-dollar homes, some which have sat on the market in the past, and have turned them into contracts with our excellent REALTOR® partners. We’ve even had the privilege of helping our REALTOR® partners market homes of NASCAR Drivers, NFL football players, and large land developers with 99 Acres.”
Keith takes his work seriously and knows he needs to be personally engaged for success. “I am invested as much as the sellers or seller’s agents when I market a home. I dedicate myself to helping clients sell properties faster by keeping abreast daily in research for ways to stay ahead of the crowd. We also track and follow all REALTORS® listings to keep on top of their success. The whole process is rewarding.”
Keith’s background is a crucial component of his success. Sports were a huge part of his life growing up, as he was influenced by his father and possesses a competitive drive. He also grew up next door to his grandfather, Stanley, who was a builder. “I was his righthand man and miss him a lot, along with all the others in my family who’ve touched my life that are gone. He owned apartments, and we did everything together from repairs, maintenance, marketing, measurements, and photography. My business now is a perfect fit from that.”
Keith’s experience allows him to understand the importance of the one-stop aspect of his services. “We bundle our services like Spectrum (cable) which ends up saving the seller and listing agent huge amounts of time. We schedule one appointment providing any services necessary to market any priced home.” He adds, “You no longer have to manage several different vendors for a single listing, which can put additional stress on the sellers themselves. This frees up REALTORS® to do what they do best: SELL. With 3D VR Walkthrough, it’s one appointment – ALL DONE!”
Setting his business apart from others is critical in this fast-paced industry. What makes 3D VR different from other companies? Keith notes three things: high quality, quick turnaround times, and providing his clients the best marketing tools for a great value.
Through the 3D VR webpage, https://www.3dvrwalkthrough.com, potential clients can immerse themselves in the alluring projects. The crisp colors and true-to-life feel make the properties come to life. And Keith stresses that the budget of the client will not be sacrificed in order to provide exemplary quality.
Aside from creating fabulous eye candy for home marketing tools, Keith Hardke is a family man. He loves spending time simply being a dad to his son: playing ball, Legos, swimming, and reading books together. With so much time in the field, he’s happy spending time at home; because home is the core of his business as well as his heart.
