Thank you, and we look forward to continuing to serve the real estate industry in the best way we know how, story telling through online marketing.

Drones Ready for Lift Off!

Drones are one of the hottest topics in real estate right now. Property photos taken from hundreds of feet in the air are dramatically changing the way potential buyers view a home and its neighborhood.

Being experts in stunning real estate photography, we just had to test out the waters. We gave a few of our photographers a drone to see just how great these photos really are. What they captured was breathtaking.

Our first shots were mostly large estates, waterfront properties, and scenic vantage points but aerial photos could be beneficial when listing urban homes as well. After all, buyers aren’t just looking for a house–they’re looking for a neighborhood, a lifestyle, and a place to call home.

Drones help showcase this like no other real estate marketing technology.

Currently, we offer Aerial Photography in Southeastern Connecticut, throughout Rhode Island, and in the Los Angeles area.

Tech-knowledge-y

Technology is an interesting thing.

It’s literally everywhere. Every business uses it.  Every human has experienced it. Everybody wants to harness it.

I’m sure we all use many “techy” things in our personal day-to-day, but lately a question I often come across is how to utilize technology in our professional lives.

In real estate, technology is used for everything from giving home tours to signing the contract on a sale. Step into a real estate office and it quickly becomes evident that agents and brokers are adopting technology in every way possible to provide the best–and fastest–service.

In an article published by Inman News (link below) the writer asks who holds responsibility for learning the technology that real estate agents use in their professional lives. It’s a good question, and one that can be extended to all professions.

Should we be taking the initiative to learn technologies that will embellish our professional skills and service? Or is personal initiative essentially a waste of time when our employers provide necessary learning and training opportunities? Does adopting technology before your competitors give you an advantage?

What’s your take on it?
