Our real estate websites are built entirely on the WordPress platform. This popular content management system is easy-to-use, loved by Google and is used by more than 60 million websites, including 42.8% of the top 10 million websites as of October 2021. WordPress is open source software so it’s constantly evolving and being improved by thousands of developers around the globe, which ensures that every aspect of your website is non-proprietary.
Style Agent real estate websites incorporate responsive mobile design so they adapt beautifully and deliver the full website content to any iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, laptop, etc. We practice the mobile-first design philosophy that aims to create better experiences for users by starting the design process from the smallest of screens: mobile. Designing your website for mobile devices helps to ensure that your users’ experience is seamless on every device.
Working from an evolving pool of literally thousands of highly rated WordPress themes, our design team will scout out and hand-pick a selection of themes that match your desired criteria, and help you to choose the perfect design for your website project. These premium WordPress themes have already undergone many hours of development, so we are working from a solid foundation to personalize the design into a beautiful website for your real estate business.
Enjoy full ownership of your website files to do whatever you wish! After completion, you can take the website with you and arrange for your own web hosting and support, or for total peace of mind, choose one of our affordable SiteCare plans. Many folks don’t realize the importance of full website ownership until they’ve had a bad experience with a web designer and have been forced to give up their website because it was non-transferable.
During the design process you will be working with an experienced website designer based out of Laguna Beach, California to discuss your goals, formulate a strategy, and choose the perfect design as the foundation for your project. This collaboration helps to move the project forward smoothly and ensures that we are creating the best real estate website experience for your money.
If you have an existing logo or branding when coming to Style Agent, we will work with you to choose a design that complements your artwork. Our websites offer wonderful flexibility to incorporate your existing branding so you can avoid starting over. For those clients without a logo, we’ll select a suitable logo from Canva to work with the design and personalize it for your business.
Every Style Agent website includes up to 25 high resolution photographs and 1 HD or 4K video from Shutterstock.com. Search the Shutterstock collection of millions of professional assets and select your favorite photographs and video to enhance your real estate website. Provide your list of stock photos and video to our design team and we will take care of the download, resize, optimization and integration into your website.
Enjoy the flexibility to use any IDX system of your choice with your Style Agent real estate website. This flexibility gives you the freedom to use the perfect IDX system to meet your needs, without being pressured into using one system over another. You have a plethora of options open to you – from a simple IDX frame direct from your MLS, right through to the robust IDX Broker™ system provided by Style Agent.
Our real estate websites are loaded with the essential core pages right out of the box. Includes Homepage, Contact, Blog, Find Your Dream Home, Your Home’s Value, List Your Home, Mortgage Calculator, Buyers Guide, Sellers Guide, Local Market Trends, Local Yelp Favorites, School Finder, Moving Checklist, Weather, and Real Estate News. The core pages ensure that you have a full website from the get go, even if you don’t have much content of your own.
Custom pages are additional pages that you request and provide the content for (text, photographs, etc.). The website package includes the first one hour (60 minutes) of custom page development which typically covers the creation of ‘About Me’ and ‘Testimonials’ pages. If more time is needed for additional custom page development, then we can provide a quote to build as many custom pages as you need during the website development phase, or the pages can easily be added to the website at a later date. The choice is entirely yours depending on your budget and needs.
Style Agent real estate websites include data capture fueled by Gravity Forms – the most powerful solution for building custom web forms and flows to connect with your users and expand your reach.
