PROFESSIONAL DRONE PILOT

PROFESSIONAL DRONE PILOT

Don’t be wowed by amateurs providing average.  My clients benefit from PRECISE, DRAMATIC, LOW ALTITUDE, NEAR MISS, TIGHT, NIGHT, CINEMATIC footage that “self-appointed professionals” shouldn’t dare attempt.

4K FILMING & EDITING

STABLE, SMOOTH and SEXY 4K IMAGERY for your personal or professional events to COMPETITIVE MARKETING.  Need a LIVE FEED?  Want the raw footage or prefer a pro editor with a perfectionist disorder? I’m your man!

PRECISE TELEMETRY DATA

Some clients are less concerned about cinematic footage..they want basic imagery with HARD DATA.  Need EXACT altitude and range? Investors require “due-diligence” views from the 24th floor of a not-yet-built high-rise? Forensic Evidence that WILL NOT be thrown out of court?  I’ve got you covered!

*IMPORTANT* YOU'RE PROTECTED. ZERO LIABILITY!

Others’ policies are inadequate…(you just don’t know it yet).  MY insurance is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to obtain and truly protects YOU, your CLIENTS and the PUBLIC.  Custom waivers and additional certificates provided FAST within 24 hours satisfying the most demanding legal and risk management departments!

Manie Kohn is the first of our insureds to have completed several comprehensive training programs and is well qualified.

All of our UAS insureds are reviewed in the same light that we review a pilots experience flying a specific aircraft.
If they don’t have the hours on the make and model aircraft, we require additional training.
Standards include an FAA ground school in order that we can be certain that our insured’s understand basic FAA Airspace and FAA Regulations.

Nearly every issue we’ve seen or encountered has been the result of avoidable pilot error and/or a lack of knowledge.

We do not insure the general hobbyist and are not looking to insure individuals that have no experience with UAS or understanding of the FAA Airspace and Regulations. ”

— Transport Risk Management, Inc. —

MANIE WAS THE ONLY PILOT WHO COULD SATISFY OUR LEGAL AND RISK MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENTS.

Others claimed to “have insurance” but upon closer review, they DID NOT carry adequate coverage and supplemental documents which would protect us, our clients or the public.

— TL PARTNERS —

MANIE IS THE ONLY PILOT THAT MEETS OUR LEGAL, ETHICAL AND CINEMATIC DEMANDS

— —

I want to market properties, not create a problem. By hiring Manie, I can do the job, do it right and do it responsibly

— Realtor, Michael McDonald, Coldwell Banker —

The only uav pilot who’s worked with local fire, police, harbor patrol and more!

— San Francisco Fire Department, Los Altos Police and Fire, Half Moon Bay Sheriff, San Mateo County Parks and Recreation, San Mateo County Harbor Patrol —

We chose Manie because his certifications and client roster were top tier.

Listing Presentation Partner "Absolute Deal Maker"

“THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE MANIE?

MANIE IS MY UNFAIR ADVANTAGE. I BRING HIM TO EVERY LISTING PRESENTATION.


my REVENUE-GENERATING SECRET WEAPON
WHO I DON'T WANT OTHER BROKERS EVEN KNOWING ABOUT!

I’m the Realtor, Manie’s the Ace up my sleeve, with superior imagery and strategic marketing execution which resonates with today's sellers.

Manie is not just another virtual tour company.
He is far more valuable.
He is endlessly curious, opinionated and knowledgeable.
He is a relentless marketer yet a clear-eyed visionary
with strong and sensible ideas.


The fact that Manie is not a Realtor brings heightened assurance to the home seller. Not only are they getting a great Realtor (me) but they ALSO get a 3rd party, independent, quality control marketing company that makes sure that no stone will be left unturned in finding a buyer for their home.

I had NO IDEA that Manie:
has been featured with BRAVO TV
worked closely with Celebrity & National Real Estate Industry Leaders
Certified by the Dept. of Real Estate as a Technology Trainer
Has trained over 20,000 agents throughout the SF Bay Area
Offered Technical Education Chairman 3 times
Secretly is the “go to" marketer for TOP REALTORS, MLS EXECS and ASSOCIATION PRESIDENTS when selling THEIR OWN HOMES
Launching a game-changing lead generation initiative in Silicon Valley

I lost a listing (and a significant commission) to a competitor and later found out why…Manie!

By the time I contacted Manie, another agent had already locked him up exclusively - and in my own office!

Not hiring Manie was the biggest mistake I ever made.

Manie is the reason I won’t be retiring as soon as I had planned
-Too much additional revenue to walk away from!

Instincts of a strategic business partner
Comprehensive offerings of a highly-competitive marketing firm
an infectious inability to settle for the status-quo
superior aerial filming skills of a close-range, precision pilot

bottom line: Manie makes me money.

I decided to see what all the buzz was about
and invited Manie to my listing presentation.
He brought unique value to my team
no other Realtor could possibly match.
I won the listing and a lucrative commission.


I didn't want him working with my competitors
so I did what any smart businessman would do-
I locked him up exclusively in my market area
(for a fraction of the increased revenue I've already seen.)

If you're SMART, you'll tie Manie up in your market.

What other Realtor has a DRE Certified Tech Trainer on their marketing team from the very MLS that their listing was going to be launched on? The sellers were sold!
