Real Estate Agents One Step Closer To Using DronesTechnology is rapidly sweeping the real estate industry, adding innovation and ease to the home buying process. With 3D cameras, virtual tours, and aerial photography, it can be daunting for agents to keep up with the evolving landscape, especially if legality is involved. However, new guidelines and initiatives from the FAA are bringing real estate professionals one step closer to using drones for aerial photography. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has recently announced the creation of the Pathfinder Program. The program involves a partnership between the FAA and three leading U.S. companies whose research regarding unmanned aircraft operations will help decide the safety and implementation of commercial operations.

Make an Impression in 20 Seconds Imagine riding in an elevator and only having a few floors—or 20 seconds—to make a positive first impression. That's where effective elevator speeches come in.
