The client is a successful Washington, D.C.-based real estate office that had an outdated and underperforming website. The client hired The Design People to mainly for their ability to integrate IDX database queries into the client's website. This allows the client's listings in the Multiple Listing Service to be automatically displayed on their website.
The Design People created a new website from scratch. The website included a custom Flash intro, searchable property database, information for buyers and sellers, contact information, and the ability for the client to keep a video blog. The Design People also have optimized the website for local search queries, which have brought in leads for the client. The client is now listed in the top three results for real estate queries in their local area. The Design People also have a subscription service to create new data pages to maintain or increase the client's search engine optimization.
The client is very impressed with the quality of the work. While they admit that the development was more expensive than alternative options, "You get the quality that you pay for." The client would recommend The Design People to any real estate professional that wants the best quality website. This includes top-notch design work as well as specialized solutions for the real estate industry.
