Vistabee is a real estate marketing business that provides full
service real estate photography. Whether you need a professional
real estate photographer, videographer, floorplans, Matterport or
aerial property photos, our 24/7 platform gives you access to the
best real estate photography professionals in Chicago.
Photography for Real Estate Professionals
As a realtor you are used to working with freelance real
estate photographers to create great Real Estate photos and
you will no doubt be familiar with many of the challenges that
poses. Availability can be spotty, photographers (we call
them Shooters) can be difficult to reach when they are busy.
Edits can take a long time, particularly when photographers
are out on other appointments. Something often happens
causing cancellations and leaving you without a property
At VistaBee we have one of the largest teams of professional real estate photographers in Chicago, so you are not reliant on just one individual. This gives you flexibility when scheduling. When you have a difficult tenant or seller we will be able to accommodate their schedule.
We prefer natural lighting and post processing, so your photos look credible and enticing, not over-processed.
When you need professional real estate photography, floor plans, video, real estate Matterport, drone photography or virtual staging, we have got you covered. Our packages are fully customizable so you only pay for what you need. Whether it's a studio apartment or a luxury townhouse, you can get what you require.
Real Estate Listing Videos
A great Chicago professional real estate video helps potential
buyers get a good feel for the property. As experts in real
estate videography, our camera movements are designed to give
the viewer a good sense of size and depth, something you can’t
achieve with still photography alone.
A real estate listing video will also help the viewer connect to the property on an emotional level, with engaging music and well paced editing. A video is a supplement to, not a replacement for photography.
Matterport for Real Estate Listings
Matterport and other real estate 360 tours are effective tools
in Chicago real estate marketing, allowing potential buyers to
see the whole picture without needing physical access to the
property. Widely supported and easy to use they are great for
out of town buyers looking to secure their future home. We have
options available at different cost levels, so whatever your
budget we have a real estate virtual tour for you.
Real Estate Floor Plans
Real estate photography shows your listing in its best light,
but how does it all fit together? Enter the Floor Plan. A real
estate floor plan shows you the layout and size of the listing
in an easy to understand manner, making it easier for home
buyers to imagine living there.
Virtual Staging for Real Estate
Do you have an empty listing? Or an older listing that needs
a revamp? Our real estate virtual staging can completely
transform your listing into what it could be. Whether you just
need to add furniture to an empty room, or completely renovate
everything we can get it done.
Drone Photography and Video for Realtors
Aerial videos and photos are great for showing the property in
a wider context. We can add graphics in both the video and
aerial photos to show the property outline and proximity to
Drone video also makes for a great establishing shot in a full listing video. Unsure if your property is suitable for aerial photography? Ask us before you order for some free advice.
Real Estate Videos for Social Media
If you are active on social media, why not take advantage of
our video offer which includes a social media optimized
version. This is ideal for Instagram, TikTok and Facebook
reels and can help you drive additional interest in your
listing. We can also help you with an Agent Profile Video,
where you can deliver your best pitch in an easily digestible
format and attract new listings and potential clients.
All our photography is full HDR, so the interiors are perfectly exposed, nice and bright, and you can see the window views clearly. If you prefer not seeing out the window (which can sometimes detract) we are flexible and will accommodate for this.
Better real estate photography with the VistaBee platform
We understand things can be fluid, so we have a generous
cancellation / reschedule policy. As long as we have reasonable
notice (before end of business hours the day before) you can
reschedule at no extra cost.
If the beautifully sunny day that was forecast suddenly turns into a tropical storm we are happy to reschedule. Our priority is to get you the best possible result.
We are also experienced in unattended shoots, so if you're unable to be there yourself we are happy to have the superintendent let us in, collect keys at the front desk, or meet the seller or tenant. You can leave instructions for the photographer on the order page, both for access and any particular angles you want. If the building has heightened security and requires named insurance that can be arranged (may have an additional cost).
Photography for Realtors
It is hard to get the absolute best Real estate agent
photos. So, can we fix it in post production? You want a
photographer that has a great eye and captures those vertical
lines, and that shoots in HDR to maximize dynamic range. But,
nothing is perfect the first time round and often fixes
At VistaBee we have a market leading platform and team for post production. We can remove undesired objects from photos. Within reason this is done inclusive in the price.
If the weather is not ideal we replace overcast skies with blue skies by default. Is the property empty, or full of ugly furniture? Consider virtual staging!
Tree outside looking sad in winter? We can add some green leaves. Is the beautiful swimming pool drained? We can add water. Lake looking a bit green? We can change the colour for you.
We understand the importance of great water views, whether it’s the lake, a river or even just a pool.
Our platform enables you to access your files at any time, and you can request changes there and then, which our post production team will complete as soon as possible. No need to call or email anyone, it's all there at the click of a button.
VistaBee offers 24 and 48 hour SLAs. Within 24 working hours of placing an order we will offer you a scheduled slot and this will be no later than 48 hours of the order time. Usually we are even quicker. Your photos and videos are turned around in post-production within 24 working hours of the shoot.
