We produced a modern, responsive website with content management and custom application development for this leading Mallorcan real estate agency.
Web design for quality Mallorcan property and real estate service provider
Mallorca Property is a real estate agency with an extensive portfolio on the island of Mallorca, and has a reputation for providing great service and for its fine properties.
Mallorca Property had seen some of our previous work in the property sector and asked us to help them develop their online presence. Specifically they wanted to produce a modern website that would allow them to grow their portfolio and provide an excellent online experience for their users.
Custom application development and a modern front-end design
While we have experience in the development and maintenance of our own property management system, Mallorca Property had a history of several years using a third-party system and it was decided that the most pragmatic and cost-effective approach would be to continue using that system. We were able to design and build a front-end that met their needs, and build a back-end system to pull in the all the property data from the external application. We make daily calls to this third-party application to ensure good synchronisation and up-to-date property display on the front-end.
For the front-end design we talked with the client to establish a general direction to take and made an analysis of key competitor sites. We created an overall look and feel that was light and modern, and which also made the best of the data that we were able to pull from the property database.
The main focus of the site is the property search, the property listings and the property detail views. We worked to produce layouts and modules for these pages, and were always very careful to deliver code that renders very fast on the page. With such fierce competition in this market, it’s important to understand that the speed of a page can have a significant effect on the success of a site. We were pleased with the output achieved here and the overall user experience is very positive.
Mallorca Property themselves work hard to consolidate their efforts on the site with a coherent SEO/SEM strategy. As a part of this, we designed and implemented a WordPress blog on the site which helps the site owners with their content delivery and has had a positive effect on their overall search engine listings.
This was an interesting project to work on and was a good match for our property website design and development skills. Although this is one of our older projects (2012) it still performs well and allows Mallorca Property to achieve a good position in a very competitive market.
