RISMEDIA, December 9, 2010—Tim Denbo is no stranger to life’s challenges as a sober recovering alcoholic of 24 years. After losing his job as National Sales and Marketing Director of eight years just two weeks before Christmas in 2007, then struggling to find a new job during the worst economic recession in 70 years, Denbo eventually lost his home to foreclosure and was forced to file for bankruptcy.
But Denbo was not alone. Over eight million people are estimated to have lost their jobs during the recent recession, according to The Department of Labor Statistics as reported in February 2010. Thankfully, Denbo has found a niche where he combined his 20+ years of experience and passion for marketing along with his love of real estate.
Denbo co-founded VirtualTourCafe.com, an online real estate marketing service that offers real estate agents and brokers an easy-to-use and inexpensive marketing service that automates the distribution and syndication of real estate virtual tours to get more leads for the agent and to help homeowners sell their homes faster.
“Having experienced foreclosure after attempting a short sale on my own home, and having been a licensed real estate agent in two states and a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), I know how critical it is to market real estate properties online and get the most exposure possible in an efficient, cost effective way,” says Denbo.
Virtual tours and virtual tour providers have been around a long time, but Denbo saw a gap that needed filled. Virtual tour services were either too expensive, too difficult, or not using the latest technology.
VirtualTourCafe.com helps agents and brokers by offering more flexibility to take advantage of current and future technology, including social media integration, HD full-screen virtual tours, YouTube-Style video, mobile phone support and Craigslist style e-flyers, with just a few simple clicks of a mouse. VirtualTourCafe was built by real estate professionals for real estate professionals.
VirtualTourCafe, LLC is based in Dublin, California and was co-founded by Timothy Denbo and Hannele Rinta-Tuuri. The business is a limited liability company and has an advisory board made-up of professionals in the real estate, technology, and marketing fields. VirtualTourCafe.com launched at the 2010 National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. VirtualTourCafe continuously donates a minimum of 10% of all net profits to charity.
