Our Goal

Produce a modern, responsive website with content management system (CMS) and custom application development for this starting Algarve real estate agency.

The Challenge

For the front-end design we talked with our client to establish a general direction to take and made an analysis of key competitor sites. We created an overall fresh 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 love and passion of Ellis for the real estate market we tried to express in our design.

The main focus of the site is the property search function, 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.

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 (early 2016) it still performs well and allows Ellis to achieve a good position in a very competitive market.
