Hired ones. Whatever www.ListerAssister.com brings to the party.

I'm in the lead generation business, not the drone business.

I hire a separate licensed pilot/drone operator to do mine. I would love to play around with a drone but, time just doesn't allow me to. Maybe in retirement!

9 out of 10 dentists used to do the recommending for toothpaste so I don't see why the same count and system doesn't do the recommending for what drone agents prefer. Makes sense for people in the industry to endorse

There were many posts about 10 years ago when people first started looking into drones.  Because of the licensing laws, operators needing major insurance, etc most people learned to rely on the professionals. You need to check for the updated regulations for your area.

My professional photography company has a few drones, but not sure what kind.   Just know they WORK.   To get more followers, start commenting on other's blogs and you will see some followers.

Joe Trusty Anyone flying a UAV (drone) for a commercial purpose, which includes real estate agents, is legally required to have an FAA Part 107 license. UAV's over 250 grams must also be registered with the FAA, as well.

Consequently, unless an agent has an active FAA Part 107 cert, they're not likely to be using UAVs in for taking photos or video of their listings.
