Real Estate



The PERC Certified Real Estate Photographer program is perfect for REALTORS®, real estate agents, brokers, builders, or photographers who want to maximize the quality of their photographs and videos to make more money. 

Web Appeal™ is far more important than curb appeal ever was, so put your best foot forward online. Entice more people to see your listing in person and close that sale sooner, for more money in any market, hot or slow! PERC will teach you how to get there faster, with more confidence, than any other training program. When prospects see your Certification Seal online they will know that they have come to the right place for trusted, quality work.
