WEBTerry Oakes Launches Drone

Drone use in real estate is becoming more and more prevalent as the housing market catches up to the latest technology, enabling brokers like Terry Oakes of Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty to capture the essence of a sweeping land listing like Waverton Ranch in Castle Rock, Colorado. “The wonderful thing about the drone is the opportunity to really show views from a height that would not be possible otherwise,” says Oakes. “It also provides a quick snapshot of the entire property (2-minute virtual tour) for out of town buyers who are interested in the placement of landmarks such as rivers, hills, and flat building sites.” Once a thing of science fiction, drones came onto the real estate scene years ago and have since become a hot commodity. Modeled after remote controlled planes rather than unmanned aircraft, the luxury housing market has found an ally in the latest drone technology adding another dimension to visual storytelling that pedestrian images could never seize.

1685 Waverton Ranch RoadOakes, whose virtual tour has been viewed by potential buyers in South America, Florida, Australia and Japan, says, “Seeing the drone shots really helped solidify the “composition” of the property in their minds.” As Colorado’s leading real estate brokerage, Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty has distinguished itself by using cutting-edge technology to market and sell properties on both a local and international level.

“It is thrilling to see our brokers taking advantage of the unmatched resources that our firm provides,” said Scott Webber, president Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty.

The Waverton ranch lot represented by Oakes is currently offered as a 40-acre site for $575,000 or can be purchased with the adjacent 35-acre lot, a total of 75-acres for $1.1 million. “It’s a true legacy estate with complete privacy and an ideal location close to the city that is hard to replicate,” says Oakes. “Rolling hills, towering pines, and a gentle stream bed grace the expansive property.” To learn more about Waverton Ranch contact Terry Oakes at 303.809.9259, or visit www.fullersothebysrealty.com.
