There are companies that offer these services. Some agents are embracing this technology so much they are investing in their own drones/cameras.

I'd buy my own drone if I did it frequently enough.  Otherwise I have a buddy with a drone.

Some companies take photographs from satellites that orbit Earth.  They might be willing to sell you an appropriate photo for commercial use at a reasonable cost.

I'd be willing to bet there are several licensed drone pilots/photographers in your area that can easily take care of what ever you need to have done.

I don't. Aerial photos are easy. Drone use still has restrictions, so check with FAA.
