Success Comes From
Starting Before You Are Ready.

Every journey has a starting point. When we jumped into real estate video, we had no idea things would turn out the way they did. One of us was a brand new agent. The other had been practicing real estate for 20 years without making a single video. Did we have grand plans to launch ourselves into the world as real estate video leaders when we created our first videos? Did we know our real estate businesses would radically change as a result of embracing video? Absolutely not.

The key to our journey was starting before we were ready.

Michael Thorne

Michael is the voice to so many. While an energetic equal to Jesse in all senses, Michael is more often behind the scenes than at the center of the frame. A skilled facilitator, Michael wears his heart on his sleeve. Anyone close enough to see it can witness Michael’s heart skip a beat anytime he makes a difference, however small, in someone’s life.

Michael As A...

Real Estate Agent

Thought Leader


Michael is a real estate veteran. After getting his real estate license at the young age of 19, he spent two decades building a successful business with partners Jorda Maisey and Trisha Bongers blocks from where he grew up. For Michael, real estate has always been about being an ambassador for the community that shaped him.

In 2011 – 20 years into his real estate career – Michael set out to challenge himself. Having never made a video before, he recorded 30 videos in 30 days. The results were instantaneous and undeniable. Not only did his clients’ listings outperform others in the market, he could no longer go shopping at the local grocery store without being stopped. Michael told (and continues to tell) stories of his community with a passion and conviction that make others want to make North Langley home too.
Michael was practically born a coach. His insatiable desire to help others can be seen from the little league baseball diamond to the stage speaking to an audience of 10,000 agents at R4 in Las Vegas. Michael’s reputation as a video thought leader is in part because of his technical skills, as he is an ardent student of video tech & techniques. But it is by pointing his camera at the place he knows best, North Langley, that Michael has become known as a global leader in using video to tell a community’s stories. That reputation – paired with a commitment to inspire others – is what brings him to real estate stages across the world.

Michael’s driving force is to be a springboard for others and give back to his community. As a counterpart to Jesse, Michael has trained agents from all over the world in not just camera work, but also storytelling. RE Video Studio Bootcamps are renowned for building courage and inspiring approaches to real estate influenced by Michael’s personal journey in North Langley, BC. Michael provides pitch perfect support, insight, and pro tips, all geared towards helping others be the absolute best they can be.
Starting with Mobile Agent TV in 2012, Michael rarely puts the host hat down. In fact, he is far more comfortable showcasing others than talking about himself. This selflessness has come to define Michael’s reputation in the industry. It is also an attitude that shows in his dedication to RE Video Studios, RE/MAX Play and a myriad of other efforts to raise the bar on the entire real estate industry. There’s no question that Michael is comfortable in his own skin, but when you are with him, the stage will always be yours.

Jesse Peters

Jesse lives to push the envelope. His vivacious style – unscripted, unstructured, organic – informs everything he does. Nobody does personal branding through video quite like Jesse.

Jesse as a...

Real Estate Agent

Thought Leader


Jesse has been a practicing real estate agent for five years, not a single moment of which was without video at the centre of his craft. His work in video is also the reason Jesse sold three homes in his first week as a real estate agent and hasn’t slowed his pace since. Operating under the Social Savvy® brand, Jesse does just about everything possible under the sun with real estate videos. His innovative work pushes Winnipeg – its unique neighbourhoods and community – to the fore. Jesse has revolutionized video for real estate to ensure his client’s home is “seen, showcased and sold.”
While Jesse only got his start in real estate five years ago, his fast ascent to industry leader is no fluke. Jesse’s pioneering work in video, as well as personal and real estate development sets him apart as a thought leader within the industry.

Together with Michael, Jesse has educated thousands of agents on how to use video to catalyze their real estate business. Video Bootcamps provide a way for Jesse to not only share his craft, but also to hone it with peers in the field. And in contrast to Michael’s video style, Jesse is notorious for making himself the centre of the show.

Because of Jesse’s success with video as an agent and educator, he is a frequent speaker at conferences around the world. Jesse thrives stageside. A karaoke host veteran in his free time, his style is buoyant, social, and informal. Jesse’s one-of-a-kind style motivates agents near and far to buck up the courage and dive headfirst into video.
Never one to shy away from the limelight, Jesse is equally comfortable being a consummate host. For Jesse, being in front of the camera is about giving others a platform. Whether strapping on a lav mic to lead a Q&A with a real estate video leader, or adding an encouraging comment to an agent who needs that little push on RE/MAX Play, host is not a role for Jesse, but rather a mission.

So What's the Final Piece?

I'm glad you asked.
