Cocoa Beach / Lake Mary, Fla. — Florida Global Marketing Specialist Joe Janson of Stirling Sotheby’s International Realty has a unique way of covering the Brevard, Indian River and East Volusia markets. He uses drones.
Not the kind that tracks terrorist suspects from afar and blows them up with remote-controlled missiles. Janson’s drones are less dangerous. He uses them to take photographs and videos that help sell homes.
“Most home buyers never see an aerial view of the home they are about to buy,” Janson said. “But an aerial view can add an impression that stays with you. A home owner can view an entire property. It’s much more impressive than just a photo of the front of the home,” Janson said.
Janson began playing with remote-controlled aircraft many years ago as a hobby.
“I’ve always been an extremely technical person,” Janson said. But that’s probably an understatement because Janson is a member of the worldwide Mensa organization and cut his teeth in his twenties on the personal computer revolution.
Janson is also a member of the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce and co-chairman of the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors Committee. He also served as chairman of the Surfside Stars, a Chamber-affiliated professional networking group. He currently serves as president of the Board of Directors of a worldwide publisher of boating-related books.
“Drones can provide distant affluent buyers with a “bird’s eye view” of your luxury home—without the feathers,” he laughed.
Janson specializes in unique waterfront and historic properties in Brevard, Indian River and East Volusia Counties. For a quick glance of one of Janson’s drone videos you can visit his newest listing on S. Tropical Trail in Brevard County, well-known home to some of Brevard’s most luxurious and prestigious estates. “It’s the largest remaining parcel for sale on the S. Tropical Trail peninsula and has a land value of $6.5 million,” said Janson
