VHT Studios®, the nation’s leading provider of professional photography, virtual staging and visual marketing services for real estate and businesses, announced the acquisition of the photography business of Circlepix®. Founded in 2000 in Springville, Utah, Circlepix, like VHT Studios, is an industry pioneer and leader in providing photography services to real estate professionals.
This latest move marks VHT Studios’ second major acquisition in two years. The acquisition of the Circlepix photography business combines the strengths of these top real estate photography providers to create the deepest, nationwide, professional photographers’ network for residential and commercial properties in fifty states and at all price points.
To meet the growing and diverse spectrum and needs of residential and commercial real estate professionals, the acquisition combines the talents of the two largest real estate focused photographer networks in North America. Existing Circlepix clients will benefit from the deep and wide variety of VHT Studios’ visual marketing offerings and resources, as well as the features and benefits of PIXmarketing, the Circlepix marketing platform for real estate professionals.
Brian Balduf, VHT Studios CEO said, “We are extremely excited to welcome Circlepix clients and photographers to our growing company. With the combined talent base, we will be able to provide more services to more real estate professionals across the United States. As part of our growth strategy, we continue to look for partners that work to achieve the same high standards as VHT Studios for quality, service and convenience. Our proprietary platform for the production and management of visual marketing assets helps both photographers and real estate professionals get the best return on their efforts and investments.”
The acquisition brings thousands of clients under the VHT Studios umbrella of coverage and professional services. The photography business acquisition does not include PIXmarketing and PIXsocial; Circlepix retains ownership of those service platforms.
On the acquisition, Robert Davis, Circlepix CEO stated, “VHT Studios and Circlepix both view excellent imagery and technology as integral to leading the industry. Providing an unprecedented level of service to real estate brokerages and agents by combining the outstanding quality of VHT Studios photography and the power of PIXmarketing just makes sense. With VHT’s outstanding track record of growth and commitment to excellence, we are extremely pleased knowing our clients will be in great hands with the real estate photography industry leader.”
VHT Studios is working diligently to transition Circlepix photographers and clients into the VHT family, to smoothly integrate and expand service offerings and client support teams for continued excellence and exceptional service in 2018 and beyond.
