Today we’d like to introduce you to Roberto Dangond.
Roberto, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I found my passion after 40. With my start in a Business Administration & Marketing degree from the University of North Carolina, I began my career in sales. I worked for influential companies starting in Washington D.C. and eventually taking me to South America. After a few years working for St. Ives and traveling through South America, I realized my heart was in the United States. I moved back to the U.S. and began working for Lanier Corporation still selling. I have always loved photography and it had been my hobby for many years. At the same time, my wife was a real estate broker and I discovered there was a need for better photography on the MLS for real estate agents. So, I started taking photos of her listings and her agents’ listings, meeting new agents along the way. I was able to make my passion into a business, loving every minute of what I do!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When we started we were ahead of the market. Real Estate agents had been taking their own photos for years and didn’t see the need to pay for the services. But we did not give up. Going through the last real estate market crash we kept providing professional photography services to the clients we had built relationships with. Then the market started to sprout again and the competition between agents became fierce. Real Estate agents need to up their game and our company was already an established and trusted business, the rest is history. Nothing we dream goes smoothly but perseverance makes it all worth it in the end.
Please tell us about South Florida Virtual Tour.
We are a local real estate photography company. We specialize in virtual tours, twilight photography, drone photography/video, walk-through videos and more. I am proud that we have a great team of professional photographers that bring their individual specialties to the table. What makes our company unique is providing all these services through a real estate agent friendly system. The system offers them the ability to customize their listing photos/virtual tours as little or as much as they like. This also allows them to market themselves uniquely so they can stand out from the rest. But in the end, we all love what we do and I think that shows.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memories from childhood were when everyone would go to the family ranch for vacation. I would ride horses into the night and dirt bike through the hills. It was a great experience that I will never forget!
