Rensburg Estate Agent- a well established property management, surveyor, sales and letting agent- who have hundreds of property in their portfolio. They have brunches in Sheffield as well as Manchester.
Client wanted a wanted a bespoke website to reflect their prestige and able market their properties along slide the right move and find a property and other well known website. Their requirements for property web portal are as follows:
- User oriented site capable of executing advance property search query,
- Advance booking and arranging viewing form, form for requesting more information.
- Easily maintainable, simple to use , multi user role and capabilities
- Include news and property feed
I gather all the sample data that will be displayed in the website; I tried to visualize the site layout with sketch and wireframe representation. I have created 8 slides: home page, general page, property search result , single property, property to let/ for sale page slides, request information and booking page , blog page, single post template layout.
Once they were happy with the layout, and approved it. It was time to get coding.
Choosing the right open Source CMS was hardest. Weighing out pro and cons I decided to go for WordPress as this offer user friendly simpler back-end for administrative purpose. I can easily customized and enhanced it without any plug-in.
I estimated it will take approximately 2 weeks to develop the site and 2 days to train them how to use the back-end of the website.
Color scheme and logo
Rensburg did not have a suitable logo for the site, so they asked me if I could design a logo for them. I asked them about the preference of color and asked them to give me a list of logos they like.
I design a simple 2 color logo and backdrop of the website. They loved the site and logo.
