It’s been a year in the planning and a good few months in the making and tweaking, but (finally!) we’re happy to introduce our new website!

Users of the old site had always commented on its ease of use, so we’ve tried to take that even further and make the user experience even simpler. Individual property pages now include all the info you need within the page itself, a description, map and floorplan, without the need to click through to further pages. Whilst the search functionality now also includes a map view for quick reference location info.

Our old website was only 4 years old or so, but how times change and how quickly the digital age moves. In recognition of this you’ll now be able to follow this very blog from the site and also link into our Twitter feed. Talking of “Twitter”, you can also Tweet property details directly from the site and you can even share them on Facebook.

Of course, the holy grail of any website is how far up the search rankings it will come (SEO). The whole site has been developed with this in mind, so let’s see how we fair…

We have also created a ‘mobile’ version of the website for smartphones (iPhones, Blackberries and the like) which is a simplified version of the main site. It retains the core ethos of the new site, ‘simplicity’, but you can still Tweet and share property details regardless. A mobile website became particularly important when we opted to use QR technology; more of which elsewhere.

We’re really happy with our new website hope you like it too.
