Editor's Note: Each week, We Get Around profiles at least one Matterport service provider that is a member of the We Get Around Referral Network of Matterport Pro 3D Camera Photographers and Real Estate Agents. The Referral Network was founded by Atlanta-based We Get Around Chief Photographer Dan Smigrod to make it super-easy and super-fast to find Matterport Pros 3D Camera Photographers – and Real Estate Agents – that offer Matterport 3D Showcases.
Cathie Rasch is a real estate agent with RE/MAX Island Realty serving Hilton Head Island and Bluffton, SC. As a Realtor with 18 years of experience serving buyers and sellers, Cathie has a passion for service and for using innovative technology to make her listings stand out. Matterport 3D Showcases allows Cathie to serve her home selling clients at the highest level.
Cathie grew up on the south Shore of Lake Ontario in upstate New York. She began her southern migration when she attended VA Tech, graduating with a BS in Accounting. From there she moved to Richmond, VA where she was a real estate agent for nine years, then Charleston, SC and finally, in 2003, to Hilton Head Island, where her husband’s family had been vacationing for 36 years.
Cathie went back to the real estate business in 2006. She lives on the island in Sea Pines – where her grandfather lived when he was visiting the island. She serves the island and Bluffton because she believes that it is important that her buyer clients find the best community for them and their families.
When Cathie saw the Matterport 3D technology, she knew that it was a perfect fit for her business.
“In 18 years of selling real estate this is the most exciting technology that I have seen," says Cathie. “My sellers are impressed with the 3D scans and love how their homes are represented. My home buying clients are busy people that lead active lives and house hunting is so often an inefficient use of their valuable time."
“No matter how many photos the listing agent uses, it’s still challenging to get a real feel for a home and, thus, make a decision as to whether or not it’s worth a buyer’s time to view it," says Cathie. "The Matterport 3D Showcase provides an engaging way for them to experience the home.”
As an early adopter of the technology, the Rasch Real Estate Team is offering what few other agents in the Greater Hilton Head Area can – and potential home sellers are taking notice. Rasch likes that "prospective home buyers can go online and interact with the doll house and floor plan views; and walk through the property at their leisure from any desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone."
Cathie is a member of the National Association of Realtors and the South Carolina and Hilton Head Association of Realtors. Cathie earned the distinction of being in the RE/MAX 100% Club.
Cathie is a member of the Matterport User Group Forum (since 21 August 2015). Cathie is also a member of the We Get Around Referral Network of Matterport Pro 3D Camera Photographers and Real Estate Agents.
