NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HouseLens and Uplift Data Partners are joining forces to boost availability of affordable drone services for residential real estate. HouseLens provides comprehensive visual marketing services for commercial and residential real estate, while Uplift Data Partners focuses on drone imaging for the same market.
“When we connected with the leadership at Uplift, we discovered a shared desire to make the residential real estate process easier and more successful for everyone involved,” says HouseLens Founder & CEO Andrew Crefeld. “We see affordable, accessible drone imaging as a key part of that vision.”
Beginning in May, residential real estate agents who book a standard HouseLens shoot will be able to add 5-7 drone photos and up to 30 seconds of drone video footage for just $149. Drone content will be edited seamlessly into the primary HouseLens shoot and delivered through HouseLens’ mobile-first Agent Portal and single-property webpages. The two companies have quietly been completing test shoots together to ensure that their processes align.
“We’re proud to partner with HouseLens, a company that has a strong customer base and exceptional technology systems to move the residential real estate market and its tools into the next generation,” says Suzanne El-Moursi, President of Uplift Data Partners. “Our platform covers compliance and regulatory requirements so that agents can book with confidence, and our network of highly-trained, industry-leading drone pilots enables large-scale, nationwide coverage. This is a best-in-class partnership, and we look forward to continuing it into the future.”
HouseLens, founded in 2008, has been offering FAA-approved drone services since early 2016. Uplift Data Partners was founded in 2015 as an FAA-approved drone imaging provider to the construction, real estate, insurance, and energy industries. Together, the two companies are looking to provide real estate agents with an improved marketing platform.
“As the market has evolved, we’ve realized that agents need a more affordable and comprehensive drone option to power their marketing,” says HouseLens’ Crefeld. “The Uplift team have demonstrated their ability to help us provide that in a professional, consistent way.”
