Solihull Editorial 3rd Oct, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

SOLIHULL-based Ruxton Independent Estate Agents & Valuers LLP have announced they are going up in the world – literally.

They have just teamed up with fellow Solihull firm, Sky Scene Imaging in a partnership that will benefit both parties – and their customers.

Ruxton Senior Partner, Nav Sharma said “We are delighted and excited about our arrangement with Sky Scene Imaging (SSI) Directors, James Butler and Steve Graham.

“Their expertise will be utilised to assist Ruxton clients with the sale of exclusive homes and land. We are providing even more innovative ways to assist our vendors and purchasers.”

SSI are specialists in unmanned aerial media – flying drones that are fitted with imaging technology.

Airborne imaging will be used by Ruxton on selected homes and plots to enhance their marketing effort.

SSI Directors, James and Steve, recognised the unprecedented advantage of airborne imaging some two years ago. After extensive training, including gaining CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) licencing, they launched their business.

James has an aviation background, which has been invaluable in ensuring images of the highest quality, whilst Steve also a qualified UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) pilot brings his financial skills to the business.

Their portfolio also includes superb imaging of historical buildings, surveying and roofing inspections.

Ruxton Managing Partner, Graham Froud added: “We are now able to show properties off to their full advantage with aerial shots of gardens, estates and adjoining countryside.

“These high definition images or videos mean potential buyers can see a unique panoramic view of the property, its features and surroundings.

“I can really see this initiative taking off.”
