Challenges Faced

Before partnering with Jeeves Drones, Westbound Realty used local photographers for their marketing needs. These services were often costly and didn’t provide the comprehensive solutions required to stand out in a competitive market. Ben Malone realized the need for a more advanced and economical solution to elevate their marketing efforts and attract potential homebuyers.

Q: What solution were you using before Jeeves Drones, and what challenges led you to look for another solution?

"We were using some local photographers, but they were costly for the amount of content we would get. We wanted to step our marketing up to offer more than everyone else, and that’s why we chose Jeeves Drones for the drone tours, interior and exterior."

The Solution: Indoor Drone Tour Videos

Westbound Realty opted for the Deluxe Package from Jeeves Drones, which includes a Indoor Drone Tour Video designed to provide a competitive edge. "Nobody else is offering that" said Ben. The Deluxe Package offers:

  • Unlimited professional photography

  • A blended interior and exterior drone tour video

  • Matterport virtual tour or a Zillow tour

  • Detailed floor plans including square footage

  • Neighborhood photos and drone photos

  • Twilight photos (add on)

Q: What criteria did a new photography solution need to meet when you were looking for a new provider?

"We had to have good quality interior pictures, someone knowledgeable about drones, homes, and the region. They needed a marketing background to understand what appeals to homebuyers and sellers."

Ben's Concerns

Ben Malone was initially skeptical about the feasibility of flying drones indoors to attract buyers. However, Jeeves Drones YouTube channel demonstrated their expertise in flying drones through houses, capturing interior shots that showcased properties in a unique and engaging way. This technological capability, combined with professional quality and attention to detail, helped me with my initial concerns.

Q: What concerns did you have initially?

"The concerns were, can they really fly a drone in a house? Can they get the look at the home that we want to portray to people shopping for homes online?"

The advanced marketing tools provided by Jeeves Drones make their listings stand out online, where 95% of homebuyers begin their search.
