I did, I'm really liking it! I only used 3 flash frames to light up the front of the house! This GIF gives a nice overview.

That's a great GIF, the difference from lit to non-lit is amazing.

Client decided to stage this home so I photographed it a second time. The first time I shot the property it started raining and I wasn't able to capture it the way I wanted to. I didn't want to waste my second opportunity... This is about 10 frames.

Is the garage approach as tight as it appears?

It's not that tight, I see what you mean... the house sits on a foundation that's lower than the street. Ideally I would be about 10 feet higher to get a better perspective of the driveway, and also to show off those fancy solar panels on the roof. This shot was taken about 9 feet above street level.

Good stuff here! Looks like there's quite a bit of lighting going on, how long did these take you to put together?

That first shot is definitely a tough spot to shoot from, as I'm sure the kitchen was darker than the window.

If you were looking to improve these even more, I would recommend replacing or blending the ceilings with an ambient exposure, they are very flash-y, and not quite evenly lit. Also in a few spots, the flash is giving a magenta cast, which could be cleaned up easily with a hue/saturation layer in PS.

Thanks, it took me a good 10 mins or so of trying and figuring things out in the kitchen so about 20-25 mins to grab 3 shots out of that kitchen? I used the ceiling to light the cabinets and counter-top (about 4 frames) but the ceiling was where I got stumped this time. I took the sponge tool and de-saturated the ceiling in PS after I posted this, it looks much better now with the orange gone from the ceiling but I'm still not completely happy with it.

I should have raised the exposure some more on it. This was the one photo out of the others where it was a little darker.

I tend to agree with Don Juan.
I let the outside go a bit overexposed to make it look more natural, in my view, compared to the interior.

Same here - unless the outside is just spectacular. You have to remember that even though when we see it live the balance is perfect because our brains process so quickly and efficiently, in a 2D photograph a perfectly balanced window will often look like a painting instead of a window. The 3D sells it live but we don't have that in a photograph.

Just finished shooting this place, this was pretty much right out of the camera. The property manger requested the "HDR look"

It's not the "HDR look" but why is that so great. These look great to me (a non-pro).

I mean HDR is in my editing process so the guy's for sure getting what he ordered. He told me he just wanted something eye popping and colorful. I was given this to go off of.. (I don't know who did this but this is pretty bad HDR imo)

Anyway, as I'm editing this set of pics I'm pretty happy to say that my "Look" is coming along, I got something in Long Beach this weekend with water views so we'll see if I can keep this look going.
