San Antonio Real Estate Spotlight: River Crossing Retreat

Everyone knows that pictures can say a thousand words in regards to real estate. Good photos can lure buyers in to see a home. Great photos have the ability to sell a home. But what about video marketing? And better yet, what about aerial videography? Kathy Rogers is an advocate of both and makes sure to incorporate them into her listings. The results are fascinating, and after seeing them, you may just want to consider it for your next listing.

One of Rogers’ newest listings, a 3,820 River Crossing retreat, is the newest benefactor of aerial videography. Located in scenic Spring Branch, she wanted to highlight the 360 degree views of the Hill Country that both the front and back tiled balconies boast. On the market for $565,000, the home was originally built for country star Randy Rogers of The Randy Rogers Band. Designed by local San Antonio architect, the custom built home is accented by built in entertainment and bookcases, a gourmet kitchen, and elegant lighting throughout. Though the exterior videography doesn’t highlight these features, with the use of editing, potential buyers see both interior still photos and exterior flight video within the same virtual tour.

Jason Collins, owner of Against the Grain Photography, was hired to photograph this home in the scenic Hill Country. With the use of aerial videograhy, along with Collins stunning still photos, an average photo shoot was turned into anything but that. And the outcome? A beautifully crafted video that relays the beauty and tranquil lifestyle of this one of a kind home.

Noted for the serene Hill Country setting, it was important to capture the ambiance that River Crossing offers. In addition to the views the new owner of this home would be buying, the neighborhood itself also offers several exclusive services for residents, including a PGA quality golf course, resort style pool, tennis and basketball courts, children’s playground, fitness center, walking trails, and a clubhouse with panoramic views and landscaped outdoor seating.

While not all homes may need aerial videography, this home was an excellent candidate. By capturing all the nuances of the lot, exterior features of the home, and incorporating interior still photos, the video tour of this home proves to be anything but average.
