"How do you sell real estate in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic when people are advised to stay home and keep a safe distance from others? Some realtors have a solution — the virtual tour," reports Newsday.

"At Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, brokers can create 3-D walk-throughs with Matterport digital technology that allows clients to see properties, three-dimensional floor plans and virtually measure areas around the house. In addition, Daniel Gale’s website offers short videos highlighting pertinent information to potential homebuyers on more than 100 communities throughout Long Island," reports Newsday.

"This weekend, Adla plans to do two 360-degree live video open houses for two of his listings: one in East Hampton, the other, in Southampton," reports Newsday.
