Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a small but dedicated and highly respected firm of real estate agents based in Charleston, South Carolina, USA. We are a very small business that relies on the talent and personality of our agents to satisfy our clients (both buyers and sellers).
Please read the full brief attached to this contest. Thank-you
This contest is for two webpages:
A home page for our new website and a property search results page.
Most real estate sites are boring, many are unattractive, unoriginal and unusable. They are visually cluttered. This does not fit with the successful brand that we have developed. Our concept will be a modern clean site that has a simple but powerful real estate search as its focus. We have many sales records (e.g. #1 team in our region, top sales office etc.) & these should be conveyed subtly on the home page as a reason to contact us.
This contest is to design a home page featuring a property search as its centerpiece, and a results page, which will be very similar to the home page but instead of showing a property search, it will show photos and key information of the properties found by the search.
Visually, the pages must:
1) Be visually stunning
2) Utterly simple and obvious to use
Functionally, the home page must:
1) Enable the buyer to launch straight into a property search. The success of the site depends on the search. Be creative, it should be extremely user friendly, not stiff or formal, you can use icons or text. You can use sliders etc. to modify the criteria. Remember, visually stunning & utterly simple.
I have attached a previous design that we had commissioned. Do not copy it. It has some good things but I commissioned this contest because I did not like it enough to use it.
