Telling the story of your listing for sale involves more than just the home itself.
It includes not only the house, but the yard, any acreage, the neighborhood, and the surrounding views.
With drone photography, you can show a bird's-eye of the entire location.
A study has shown that 83% of buyers stated that they'd rather work with agents who use drone photography!
Gain a Competitive Advantage
A recent NAR survey shows that only 11% of realtors have used aerial photography. This is a great opportunity to grab a competitive advantage in your market and make a great 1st impression with potential sellers.

Win More Listings
Today’s homeowner is most savvy in history. Because they experience thousands of marketing messages a day, they know what good marketing looks like. Why would they want subpar marketing when selling their home?
Superior Equipment = Superior Results
I fly the latest technology in unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), the DJI Mavic Pro 2, and have a DJI Phantom 3 Pro as a backup.
The 4k Hasselblad camera is renowned for its iconic design and uncompromising image quality. Its active sensing area is 4x more effective than the original Mavic Pro.
This results in sharp, crisp, high-resolution stunning photos that can be used for brochures and in print advertising.

Agents face an $11,000 FAA fine for using an unlicensed pilot
Because you are using aerial photos to sell a home the drone used has to comply with all commercial drone usage rules. These rules include the times of day when drones are allowed to fly, height, sightline, and airspace restrictions.
This is important because hiring an unlicensed drone pilot for commercial photography has resulted in massive fines for real estate agents. While operating a drone for commercial purposes without a license can result in FAA fines of $1,100 per occurrence the agent who hires the pilot can and have faced penalties of $11,000 (10x) per violation.
