Web Design Dilemma
Liz came to us for a much-needed makeover for her website. She wanted a custom design that was easy to update with lots of value-added extras for her visitors. Much like the properties she sells, the site needed to have a good foundation and an appealing design. Most of all Liz wanted to be able to offer her client’s direct access to the Toronto MLS System for easy property searching without having to use the very user-unfriendly Realtor.ca.
The Creative Design Solution
We decided on a customized WordPress design in order to take advantage of the many plugins available for the functions we wanted to integrate into the site. This allowed for the creatiion of a solution that would be tailored to the current and future needs of her business.
One of Liz’s main priorities was a page that pulled data from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). She wanted to give her clients and visitors a one-stop-shop for all their real-estate needs.
Using the API provided by MLS, our developers integrated an MLS search function and dynamic map into the site.
We also created a custom page template for Liz’s featured listings so that she could easily and quickly update her visitors about her newest properties. Using the GoogleMaps API, we were able to integrate map functionality into the template.
Liz is exceptionally pleased with her new site and is excited to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to adding and editing content!
