Tucker Welch Properties is the first in the Berkshires to use drones to showcase our luxury properties.
RICHMOND -- Tucker Welch Properties was looking for a new way to film the videos that it uses to showcase its luxury properties to prospective buyers.
The realty company didn't just find a new way, it came up with a cutting-edge method: It's using a drone.
On Monday, a small drone rented by the company buzzed around the 27-acre State Road property occupied by the Inn at Richmond and the Berkshire Equestrian Center that's on the market for $5.9 million.
The small drone flew high enough to provide a unique view of the equestrian center's riding ring, and low enough to fit under the ceiling of a main room at the small inn, which was built in 1771.
The drone's owner and operator, Terry Holland, of Pittsfield, said he planned to use the footage to create a two-minute video that those interested in the property could access online.
"This gives you a unique perspective," Holland said. "It's the closest thing I've seen to feeling like you're really at the property."
"This puts it all together for the buyer," said Cindy Welch, a principal of Tucker Welch, who arranged Monday's video-shoot.
