After pretty much a complete year on hiatus, we are back! Once again offering photography, floor plan and virtual tour services to the Columbia, MO market! Long story short, an architect filed a lawsuit against some Columbia MO Realtors claiming that they did not have the right to display floor plans online. As you can […]

New SPHERO Pricing!

It’s been an AWESOME several months we’ve had promoting Sphero in Columbia!  There have been a ton of ups and downs and 2 definitive moments when I nearly gave up because of a lack of interest.  It literally took 45 days of cold calling and 5 office meetings before I sold my first tour but thanks […]

Long story short it seems like Congress is fairly supportive of commercial use of small UAS. Also evident from the hearing is how LOST the […]

Under Contract!

We’ve been hitting the streets over the past couple months and we have now done 24 tours between Columbia and Jeff City.  We did our first tour in Columbia back toward the end of November and several of the homes with our tours are already under contract!  Take the power of Sphero with you to your next listing […]


Something that’s become obnoxiously common in real estate photography is the use of HDR gone bad…  HDR stands for “High Dynamic Range” and as cameras have gotten more and moore powerful, it no longer requires someone handy in photoshop to destroy the lighting dynamics in a photo.  Here is an example of an awful HDR […]

Commercial Use of UAVs

I have hesitated to speak publically about the commercial use of UAVs out of fear that the FAA will target me or attempt to fine my business.  However, I have drafted the attached letter and I have tagged the state and congressional representatives for our area in my social media postings about this post.  I […]

Going Viral!
