THE VPR STORY
Many people are curious about how the name "Virtual Properties Realty" came about. In 1999, when Steve and Karen started their company, Virtual Tour photography for listings did not exist. A very expensive Virtual Tour camera with Virtual Tour software, however, did exist - so Steve decided to buy a Virtual Tour camera, thereby becoming one of the first Realtors in Georgia to do Virtual Tours for his listings. Thus, the name Virtual Properties Realty became the company name.

THE VPR DIFFERENCE
Virtual Properties Realty was founded in 1999 by mother son broker team, Karen Burks and Steve Wagner. After being with Re/Max for nearly 10 years they began to realize that the Re/Max franchise was just too large to keep up with the newest trends in technology. And so Karen & Steve designed a company with specific enhancements in order to form a “more perfect real estate agency”. They set out to create something better for their agents and clients. Today Steve & Karen pride themselves for not only keeping up with cutting edge technology, but for providing their agents with superior training and broker support. Virtual Properties now operates as three unique companies Virtual Properties Realty.com, Virtual Properties Realty.net, Virtual Properties Realty.biz.
