The Skyborne Super Agent Club
Skyborne is the leading provider of cutting edge marketing material in real estate.
We believe that properties deserve exciting aerial and 360 Virtual Reality (VR) media as standard, in addition to digital photography. This really leverages the digital platform you have purchased on realestate.com.au and drives traffic to the property. The problem is that usually you don’t get all these bells and whistles at a reasonable price.
Think of us as your one-stop shop for all real estate marketing needs. We are pioneering aerial and 360-degree virtual reality media as the standard in real estate marketing in addition to digital photography. We pride ourselves on high-quality images and videos that have been proven to increase traffic and engagement on listings. Normally these services bought individually would cost you more than $850.
We know that property agents are pressed for time. We know that initial enquiries and interest in properties are almost fully dependant on how good the photos are, and we know how difficult it can be to convince your clients to part with even a small amount of cash to pay for marketing, even though the price of it is more than worth the investment. Once the potential clients get to the property, the agents can work their magic.
That’s why we have launched an unlimited marketing package with aerial and 360 content from as little as $300/month.
So, how does it work?
1. Decide on the level of marketing you require and simply sign up to the one that suits you the best OR use our calculator to mix and match different levels.
2. When you have a property, email or phone through the address of your property and a suitable time.
3. We’ll take care of delivering the media and uploading it to YouTube and even Facebook.
4. Rest assured that you have fantastic media for your properties for the next 6 months.
What we’ve introduced are highly flexible 6-month unlimited property plans for power users. Want to share the benefits with the whole agency? Mix and match properties of any level and all the agents can use them as needed at any time during the contract.
Plus, we can even set up an automatic payment plan from whatever account you choose, meaning you can sign up and forget about it.

Frequently Asked Questions
+ What is aerial photography?
Simply put, aerial shots are photographs taken from a height, most commonly using helicopters or drones. Aerial shots using drones are more striking and unique because of the angles drones can go to. They are more manoeuvrable and can fly lower than helicopters, which have altitude and noise restrictions. Older methods of taking elevated shots using booms and poles are limited to a single height and a small range of angles, and of course cannot take sweeping cinematic shots of the property. We choose to use smaller quadcoptors because they are lighter and safer to fly, and the photo quality is still excellent. Our photos can be blown up to billboard size if required and our videos are shot in 4K quality.
A lot of drone operators fall into two categories:
- Economical (below $100) - these are dirt cheap and are essentially raw footage from the drone. The shots are enough to get you by but they're not amazing.
- Cinematic productions ($10,000+) - these are the beautiful, sweeping shots you see in movies and commercials. Using the top of the range everything, these are not cheap but they are absolutely stunning.
If you want your property to have maximum exposure and sell quickly, you shouldn't have to choose between great photos or something within your budget. Skyborne combines the best of both worlds - we take fantastic shots as well as sleek, professional videos and all at an incredible rate so that your budget doesn’t get destroyed.
+ What is 360 Media / Virtual Reality?
“360 media” are videos and photos that are shot with a 360 degree cameras. The key difference between 360 media and virtual reality (VR) media is that 360 media is shot with cameras, whereas VR is digitally generated. These terms can be used interchangeably since you can look at them using a VR headset.
VR media allows you two advantages in the selling game. VR photos alleviate the need for wide-angle lenses and allow buyers to view your property virtually from any device. Google Street View gives you a good example of what VR photos offer. The prospective property buyer can use VR headsets, their phones or just click and drag on a laptop to look around the room in any direction. They can feel immersed in the environment you want them to experience.
VR video adds a whole new dimension and level of immersion to your virtual house tours. Users get immersive theme music, voice overs and text popups. They can look around while this is running and even pause the video to get a better look. Going from photo walkthroughs to 360 video walkthroughs is like going from radio to television.
+ Who is Skyborne and how are you so competitive on prices?
Skyborne Technologies was founded by aerospace engineers in 2015. We have a team of highly intelligent and professional people who listen to your needs and deliver what we promise.
We’ve shot more than 180 properties in the last 12 months, and we’ve figured out what works and what doesn’t. Feel free to take a look at our portfolio. We’ve got the latest 360 photo and video stitching software that integrates seamlessly with our custom-designed and built rover. We’ve got a fleet of reliable 4K camera drones that meet all requirements of real estate photography. We are fully CASA certified and have all the required insurances for drones (and all other) operations.
Our business model has very few overheads – our systems are automated where they can be. Most companies take a cost-per-photo approach to pricing and add significant premiums to things like aerial shots. We’ve evolved from the standard cost-per-photo business model. It just doesn’t deliver the best value for the client (or us). By the time we drive to your property and unpack our equipment, the extra effort to get cutting-edge 360 photos and aerial shots is a small percentage of our total effort doing business with you. Because we have a streamlined system of delivering premium marketing material, we are able to work quickly and efficiently to deliver you the best results.
+ It sounds risky for us to sign up to a six-month contract.
Skyborne’s subscription model is highly flexible and can be tailored to your needs. We start you on a one-month cooling-off period where you can assess if our services are right for your business. You can cancel at any time during that month.
+ What if I get no properties through the door in a month?
If business is slow, simply email us by the 15th of the month and we’ll suspend your contract for that month at no fee. You get a one-month suspension for every subscription.
+ Not every property needs such high-tech marketing material. What if we don’t want or need it for some properties?
Whilst our drive at Skyborne is to deliver the best and latest marketing material to you, we understand that you may not want to showcase a ‘fixer-upper’. We suggest using our media in a different way – for example, instead of taking interior photos, use aerials to showcase the fantastic location of the property.
+ What is so special about your platinum package?
The platinum package delivers stunning 360 video tours throughout the property. These tours are what will really stand you out from the crowd. As a sign-up bonus for any of our platinum packages, we will provide you with a VR headset and training. You will be able to take your walk-in buyers on a tour immediately and wow them with your marketing prowess.
+ How can you guarantee quality?
At Skyborne we’re confident our media is high quality, but for your peace of mind we have a re-shoot policy. If you’re not happy with the content we deliver, we perform a free re-shoot. Simple.
+ We already have photographers that know what we want. What if we want to keep using them as well?
We completely understand if you have existing business relationships with professional photographers. Our mission is to supply our high-tech services throughout the industry so that they become standard marketing tools. We’ll try and find a fit of services and price that still delivers you excellent value for money, but you will probably pay more in the long term.
