  1. Also DITTO on reaching out personally and building your own base of customers. Besides, most of the "pilot networks" I have joined offer less than half what the jobs are worth. I haven't seen one for more than $100 in two years. ...Jay
  2. To give you an idea what I generally charge, click on the link below. Most of my business is with real estate agents. [click here] Regards, Jay North Shore Drone Services Hamilton, MA & North Conway, NH
  3. Please indicate actual location for consideration. Thanks, ...Jay NorthShoreDroneServices.com
  4. I have been able to "team up" with many local land-based real estate photographers that do the ground level and interior photos and video. I works out quite well because they have the proper equipment for that portion of the real estate marketing and rely upon me for all the aerial work. A win-win for each of us!

  5. My name is Jay Burnham. I am a thirty five year veteran of the real estate industry. I originally bought my first drone (Mavic Pro) in order to take aerial photos of homes I listed for sale. Almost immediately I discovered that I would need to get my sUAS remote pilot license in order to use the photos commercially. I took a great online course and passed the exam at my local airport, two years ago. Over the next several months I developed a business plan to transition from real estate sales into aerial photography and video services. I established North Shore Drone Services and began offering services to other real estate agents. But then an unusual thing happened. The plan, which was expected to be fully implemented within two years so that I could retire from real estate and devote full time to my drone business, took off (pun intended) much faster than I anticipated. So now, two years and two drones into that new career, I am extremely excited about the opportunities associated with drone technology and the potential to continue the growth of my new business. Attending the AUVSI XPONENTIAL Trade Show would surely expand my growth and learning in our relatively new industry and so I would be pleased to attend should I be fortunate enough to be chosen to go. Thank you for your consideration. Kind regards, Jay Burnham North Shore Drone Services Hamilton, MA 01982
  6. Interesting. I have only recently been asked by real estate agents, for whom I am taking aerial photos, if I am licensed (I am). I am also being asked for my sUAS certificate number and the FAA registration number of the drone I will be using. I have no problem with the inquiries. In fact, I appreciate them as it guarantees that hobbyists will not be infringing on my business. ...Jay
  7. I too would like to hear more about it from anyone that has attended. Thanks, Jay
  8. Very nice video footage. Still waiting for some SNOW here in Massachusetts so I can get some dramatic aerial footage as well. Right now, without snow, everything looks kinda BLAH from above! ...Jay
  9. Chuck, I fear you missed the point of my post. You see the video was only one part of the overall marketing piece. The rest of the marketing included interior and exterior still photos along with full MLS details of the proeprty. The video was meant simply to augment all the parts that you felt were missing. Sorry that I did not explain that the video was only a portion. I was attempting to reply with only point-of-interest and reveal footage to the question originally posed.

  10. One of the best uses of drone photo/video of residential properties for sale is the use of Point-of-Interest and Reveal videos which highlight the houses AND the surrounding area of land. There are many more, of course. Here is an example of what I mean: Regards, Jay Burnham North Shore Drone Services
