Southern Adelaide Area Franchisee

My Story

I joined Open2view in July 2005 at its inception into South Australia and have built the Southern Area from scratch. At present I have been able to recruit 4 dedicated and very professional Photographers which have continued on and have increased the turnover within their respective Photographer Areas.
Prior to joining Open2view I setup and run my own successful Photo Identification business and during that time jumped quite a lot of hurdles associated with running your own business. That past experience I have applied to this franchise and that is what has put the Southern Area in a good standing within the Real Estate Photography industry. My philosophy in business is look after your clients & photographers, be flexible & willing to negotiate and they will look after you. Service and Quality of products supplied are a priority.
Other than supporting the Photographer Franchisees within the Southern Area I also look after a couple of Agencies out of Glenelg to keep my skills up and finger on the pulse as to what is happening within the Real Estate industry. I prefer the hands on approach rather than sitting behind a desk.

Some of my happy clients...

Open2view has won me more listings.
Buyers in today's market are time poor and the internet is the most accessible marketing tool available. The importance of professional photography is higher now than ever before. Sellers want to see beautiful marketing and feel good about their home whilst the buyers want to feel good about the property their buying, and have friends and family view the home on the internet. Professional photography is the best way of representing the true assets of the home. When a buyer can view 15 or more quality photos in the comfort of their own home, it saves a lot of time and heartache for all parties involved. I have been using Don from Open2view for nearly 3 years now and are positive I have won more business because of the quality and services.

We just wanted to say thank you Don for the great photos you took of our house. We were thoroughly impressed with the final outcome and even had an offer the next day once the person saw the photos on the internet. You were very friendly and professional.
Kind Regards

Great Pictures. I will certainly be recommending your services at future appraisals.

I have received 2 calls from both the husband and wife of a property I'm selling, praising Don's work and attitude at putting them at ease throughout the whole process. They were really impressed. Having Don as part of the team makes real estate a lot easier.
