Without seeing pictures it could be anything between 25-35 feet pole needed we have some bungalows we need a 35 foot pole for to do velux windows due to the slope of the land .

I did a new one this week , 5 velux on a 2 story house. 
I could just reach with a 25 ft pole with 6ft extension. 
It does depend on various things though, including roof pitch and what’s on the ground etc. 
 

and a few ft extra would have been nice.

It may benefit you to look at other properties to gauge an average height of roof mounted skylights and measure them with an affordable laser / ultrasonic measure as we can't answer the unseen

 Depending on ground elevation fixtures fittings & window positions it could be 35 - 60 foot

Only you can answer this if you do the common basics
