- Custom Template Web Design - Work closely with our designers to develop an attractive layout, easy to navigate and a look & feel for an effective professional presentation that is also a mobile device friendly responsive design.
- When your web site is built using Responsive Web Design (RWD) technology it eliminates the need to maintain separate web sites or use bulky plugins to accommodate mobile devices along with your regular web site for desktop viewers. One web site can be accessed by a multitude of internet devices which elegantly adjusts to the viewport or screen size of their device. One web site - one design - all devices!
- Fully Automated RETS MLS (Multiple Listing Service) Database Integration with Property Search
- RETS IDX - The Real Estate Transaction Standard (or RETS) is a common language spoken by systems that handle real estate information, such as multiple listing services. A common language enables computers like the one on your desk to receive information from many different real estate systems or MLSs.
- We build into our Real Estate web sites with fully automated RETS or IDX Multiple Listing Service (MLS) module integration including MLS Property Search - for either SCAOR (Sussex County, Delaware) or CAR (Coastal Association of Realtors, Maryland) MLS databases. Module has multiple custom configurations for sorting properties by listing Broker, listing Realtor as well as filtered by city, town, property type or sub type.
- RETS & IDX MLS modules functions. Once configured to your specifications the module will automatically pull all the necessary property data from the MLS database. This saves you critical time so you can spend your time working on your business - not on your website.
- Properties are displayed on an index page with representative "curb appeal" photo, a brief description and number of beds and baths. This page is sortable ascending or descending by MLS number, by price, house type or city and linked to a secondary detailed property page displaying full MLS Real Estate individual Property Details from the MLS database.
- Property Detail page features full MLS data base property details and amenities with Similar Properties Module which displays 4 properties on the property detial page in the price range of the property being viewed.
- Virtual Tour data is pulled from the MLS database.
- An interactive Google map using Googles Geo-Mapping service or Lat-Long if available will show prospective clients general property locations.

We perform on page search engine optimization (SEO) on every site we design, custom keyword & long tail keyword phrase research for your website's market, title tag research, meta tag research and alt tags as well as on page content changes to make your website content rich and search engine friendly.
- Additional pages can be added on a per page price basis.
