Thomas Childs and Co's aim is to be the best Estate Agent in Hertford and they wanted to ensure that they used the best service providers in Hertford, hence the reason he chose Advanced Web Designs to design and develop his website.
Thomas Childs wanted to have a website that represented the level of quality that they offer customer and the type of properties they have in their portfolio. The design of the site needed to incorporate their sales side as well as the lettings branding.
Thomas Childs add their properties to their management system called Expert Agent. This feeds out to the various property sites such as Rightmove or Zoopla. They wanted us to directly feed from the Expert Agent system to update properties on the site without any interaction from the office.
Auctions became a part of the Thomas Childs business and in 2014 asked us to incorporate a new actions section.
We developed a website that was fully responsive for mobiles, tablets and desktop. When properties are viewed, the branding changes depending on whether it is a sale property or one for rent.
In order to meet the requirements of the properties from Expert Agent appearing on Thomas Childs, we created an integration script that directly downloads property information from both the sales and lettings side. All associate images including floorplans, EPC certificates are stored locally in multiple different sizes.
Individual photos can be viewed within the scroller or as high resolution images images. EPC certificates are downloadable as PDF files or can be viewed directly in the site. Floorplans also work in a similar fashion.
As marketing is important to the company we developed an easy to manage blog system to post the latest articles and stories. Social media has also been integrated throughout the site to ensure maximum engadement.
