Helmores are Leading the Field with their Aerial Media Department
Helmores is a traditional full-service High Street estate agent based in Crediton and covering every village and town in central Devon. The firm was established way back in 1699 by William Helmore and has been passed from father to son for the last 3 centuries.
They may be a 300-year old business but they have a super modern approach. Helmores have become widely known for their marketing innovations, after launching their Aerial Media Department three years ago; becoming the first UK Estate Agency making aerial films in-house. They produce incredible images and video content of their properties, all using hi-tech drones expertly designed for both professionals and consumers alike. The drones enable them to get high quality video content, some of it up to 5.2K RAW video. Just to put that into more understandable terms, most HD televisions stream images in 4K.
Rob Stoyle, the owner of Helmores, says,
“I am a qualified drone pilot which means I get to go out and see all sorts of exciting country properties and I go and play with flying toys. It’s amazing, I absolutely love it!”
The drones enable them to get better, more revealing images of properties. For example there can often be a lot of foliage around buildings, which prevents photographers being able to get a clear view of the property. There are also instances in which houses are positioned on a hill, a beautiful location for those inside but from the outside it is difficult to get an attractive shot. The drone enables you to get different angles and more appealing images. They cannot be used for all properties, simply due to various rules and regulations, but for the right property a drone really can show of the setting.
Helmores use the drones for images but also to create stunning videos around their properties. Some of their most amazing work is of properties located on the beach or in other beautiful locations. You can see for yourself in the video below of Atlantic View, Widemouth Bay. The footage presents the home in its location and enables the viewer or prospective buyer to fully appreciate the amazing setting of Helmores properties.
As well as drone footage, Helmores also launched Virtual Viewings; high-end and comprehensive films of the properties that Helmores has on the market to showcase to potential buyers on their mobile devices and for vendors to share across their own social media.
As if that wasn’t enough, the team also produce a Christmas advert. It is something that has become shared across the UK and been featured in national news on multiple occasions.
Helmores aerial photography really is something to admire and what better reason could you need to #KeepitLocal
