Can an Agent also be a FilmMaker?

By Jeff Goldberg

I am a newly licensed Realtor in VA and an ex-Videographer. I still have my professional video equipment.  After my Realtor training I decided that I would take the approach of offering "free" video to FSBOs. As I researched I discovered that the videos that most Realtors were posting were merely Photo Montages. I decided  that there was room in my area for someone who actually shot video. Luckily, I discovered Fred Light's website, I purchased his Training Video (excellent) and I'm getting my ducks in a row, learning how to do what and all. Yesterday, I received an Email from my MLS acknowledging my request to become an Approved Vendor and stating that "Vendors can not be Agents or Brokers". I guess I hadn't thought of that. If that's the case and I can't post to the MLS, is it viable for me, as an Agent to pursue being a FilmMaker? If I can't be approved by MLS, what are the services I can offer to Agents? Thanks in advance for your help.
