After many grueling months of trials, regulations and laws, drones are finally allowed for usage within the real estate industry, and you better believe we’re catching onto that tail wind. PlanOmatic is now offering Aerial Photography services everywhere in the U.S.!
You’ve seen the stunning imagery before, but we’ll drop these here in case you need a refresher…
Don’t feel bad, we’re drooling too. Want to see more? Let’s goooo.
On July 30, 2016, Giveback Homes, a real estate professional volunteer and donation network, partnered with Habitat for Humanity, an international organization driven to build homes and communities for those in need, to volunteer for Build Day in San Francisco.
PlanOmatic was happy to be the first to ever sponsor and provide photography at the event. Our long-time photographer and account manager, AJ Canaria, had the pleasure of capturing this momentous day which brought volunteers together to work on Habitat Terrace, the largest development of it’s kind in the San Francisco area.
AJ says, “I just absolutely love telling a story through pictures. It was fun following around each one of these groups, getting to know each person as I moved from one building to the next, and capturing them in action doing their specific task. Everyone had a smile on their face and really had a great energy to them. It was a rewarding experience being part of something bigger than myself and taking part and doing something for social good.”
PlanOmatic is proud to sponsor events such as these, which focus on providing everyone a stable home to live in. Working with Giveback homes was a great experience and we can’t wait to see the success they have with future Build Days all across the country and in Nicaragua. We fully support the mission and goals of Giveback Homes and Habitat for Humanity, and we are happy to contribute to such a wonderful cause.

Over the weekend, PlanOmatic donated $600 and had the pleasure of participating in the 2016 Courage Classic, a biking event that strives to raise money for sick children through Children’s Hospital Colorado.
The charity ride took place at Copper Mountain in Colorado and hosted around 2,000 riders with 300 volunteers. The two day bike tour offered a couple different route options each day, offering a 40 mile ride and an 80 mile ride.
CTO, Arie Covrigaru, and Operations Coordinator, Avi Covrigaru biked 40 miles from Copper Mountain, to Vail and back. The ride took about 4 hours in total, not including a lunch break in between. The route was a combination of upward peaks, and downward slopes.
“The most difficult part of the ride for me was the steep incline in the dead center of Vail Pass. I struggled to keep peddling on my lowest gear while I watched people dismount and walk. At certain points I had to stop and stretch in order to keep my legs fresh. As grueling as the ride was at this stage, it was moments like this that gave me the sense of accomplishment I felt upon completion,” says Avi.
Though the trail was difficult at points, the PlanoTeam also enjoyed moments of peace and beauty which made it a success. Arie claims, “There was a lot of excitement about this ride. Most riders were CU Children hospital employees and their families. The village at Copper was as full, as colorful and as lively as I have seen it during snowboard season. In addition, the landscape was majestic and I enjoyed it tremendously, when I was not busy paddling uphill.”
PlanOmatic had a great journey and we intend on participating again next year! To learn more about the Courage Classic, visit their website:

PLANOMATIC CEO, KORI COVRIGARU, LOOKS BACK ON 10 YEARS OF BUILDING A MARKET LEADER
1) Do you prefer Pepsi or Coke?
More of a root beer man, but if I’ve gotta pick then Coke all the way. I’ve always thought Pepsi was real nasty, even though in reality it’s all the same sugary nonsense.
2) What is your spirit animal?
I’ve always figured I’m a bit of a turtle, real slow and steady, and ain’t nothing can touch me in my shell.
3) What is your favorite season?
To be honest I like them all, hot summers or cold winters it’s all in your mindset of enjoying the day despite whatever discomfort comes your way.
4) On the weekends you are typically..
Nice weather means the outdoors, whether that’s camping, hiking, cycling, etc. Cold usually means I get lazy and end up on my couch or in a brewery somewhere.
5) What do your shoes say about you?
Half of the time I’ve got my cycling shoes on so I guess that’s pretty indicative of what I’m into.
1) If you could be a super hero, who would you be and why?
I wouldn’t want to be a superhero; I’d be a villain because I feel like I’d definitely be better suited for that role. Which villain? I have no idea. I’d probably be a mob boss that eats fruit snacks all of the time.
2) What’s your favorite food?
Lasagna. You can NEVER go wrong with lasagna. There’s so much flavor and so many ingredients that my tastebuds take a trip to heaven every time I take a bite, unless there’s ricotta cheese in it. Then, I die an instant death.
3) What’s your favorite song to dance to?
I Would Die 4 U – weird song choice, I know, however, Prince is my idol. I can’t help but jam every time I hear those 80’s synths blasting through the speakers.
4) If a movie was made about your life, which celebrity would star as you?
Keke Palmer. She’s young and extremely talented. I almost said Beyonce, but, no.
5) Which pattern do you prefer, stripes or polka dots?
It really depends on the day. Sometimes, stripes look better than polka dots because that’s what your eyes prefer. I can tell you what I do NOT prefer – wearing both at the same time. Vomit inducing.
