Plett Property March 2013


If you notice a small black unidentified flying object hovering overhead in the Plett skies, chances are it’s the new quad-copter taking aerial imagery of properties remotely controlled by Steve Neufeld of Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty Plettenberg Bay.
Hein Pretorius, owner and principal of the agency, said: “With ever increasing levels of service required from estate agencies for sole mandates on premium properties, we decided to add aerial photography to our offerings which already include slideshows, virtual and video tours.”
Neufeld said: “When I started in real estate, people joked about wanting “sky hooks” for their cameras so that they could get the perfect photo. Technology has leapt forward since then. The QU4D, a remote controlled helicopter with four rotors, with a camera mounted underneath is the perfect tool for getting images that show a property to best effect. You get to see the building, the location and the view all in one shot.”
“Many properties just cannot be photographed properly from the ground. For example, vacant land doesn’t, as a general rule, look great from the ground unless it has a spectacular view, but as soon as you get the camera in the air it’s a different story. You get to see the position of the site with the beautiful bay in the background.”
