NEW ESTATE AGENCY IN HALIFAX
In spring 2010, Peter Kemp opened a new independent Estate Agency in Halifax, West Yorkshire. Peter can boast 25 years in the business and a lot of satisfied customers. Having worked with RO Web Solutions in his previous business, Peter had no hesitation in commissioning us to build his new property portfolio website.
QUALITY OF DESIGN
Many of Peter's new clients are toward the high end of the property market, with expensive properties to sell or let, and so we looked to create a luxurious feel to the website to underpin this premise.
To sell a property online you need quality photographs, a service which Peter was already able to provide for his customers. We opted for a dark, sumptuous colour scheme, contrasting with Peter's colourful branding, allowing the graphical aspects of the site to stand out - in particular the property photos themselves.
The site is driven by a content management system allowing Peter and his staff to add properties to the portfolio as soon as he is instructed by the client, and uses dynamic geocoding to determine the location for Google maps display. Many of the properties feature quite lengthy descriptions and multiple photos, all handled effortlessly within the Control Panel. The home page shows recently added properties, the selection of which can be specified through the system.
