Wasn’t that gorgeous? Los Angeles has its share of beautiful homes, top-notch production talent and models galore — but it’s not the only city where listing videos are top of the line.

If you’ve created a listing video as lovely as this one — or a quirky video, or an unusual video — share it with Inman readers!

Send us a link to your video and the answers to the first set of questions (if you’re the listing agent) or the second set of questions (if you’re a videographer). We’ll post the responses on our site for your peers to enjoy.
