Self-Guided Virtual Tours
We offer our self-guided virtual tours as a part of the services we provide when listing your home at no cost. We also offer the service to fellow Realtors and their clients for a small fee – about the cost of having professional pictures taken. Click on the image to the right (or below if viewing on a smartphone) to experience a self-guided virtual tour yourself.
The dollhouse view provides a 3-dimension view of the floor plan – similar to a dollhouse.
We can provide a floor plan, complete with room measurements from the virtual tour.
We can create any picture of the property from the virtual tour without returning to the home.
Virtual tours must be experienced to be appreciated. They can be viewed from a computer, tablet, smart phone, or 3D goggles.
The eXp Realty ibuyer program is named ExpressOffers. iBuyer refers to institutional buyers – ExpressOffers connects a marketplace of cash buyers to sellers that match homes with certain attributes.
The marketplace of vetted institutional cash buyers to compete for your home.
This program provides quick closes on your schedule in as little as a few days.
If a seller is buying another home, ExpressOffers can be used to remove contingencies.
No showings, no repairs, no convenience fee, aggregate other ibuyer offers, and quick close.

Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
I felt Mr. Backer was very patient and tried to explain things so I could understand and follow the progress of the sale of our property. He was always warm, friendly and very approachable. He referred several contractors to me, and offered me assistance with other resources. He was also very consistent about his availability to answer questions and keep me apprised at all times.
John helped me and my fiancé find our first home during the chaotic Holiday Season. He was knowledgeable and willing to show us homes in a, more than reasonable, timely manner. He was patient with us and his opinions and suggestions were very useful for us first time home buyers.
John Backer is spot on. He helped us tremendously right out the gate. I is very knowledgeable and informative with any questions or concerns we had. He is aggressive when needed and very open minded with your wants or needs. Any time we needed to do a viewing or had questions he was always at our service without any delays.
Honest and hardworking with our best interest in mind. We looked at many houses, then bought the first one he showed us. He was also helpful recommending a good carpet cleaning company, termite inspection, roofing, and HVAC company (inspection and minor maintenance – no problems with the house).
