Inhabiting the home planet.
East Coast Realty was beginning to grow beyond their teal and green web site, so they contacted us to rebuild it from the ground up. New England colors, a notched-corner style reminiscent of the highly-flyered neighborhoods, and a custom illustration [inspired by our own experience with East Coast Realty as their client] tie together to create one of the most unique real estate agency web sites in Boston and beyond.
On the technical end of things, the entire web site is built to fit on top of a custom intranet solution allowing East Coast Realty to manage leads, apartment listings, photographs, landlords, and even interact with web services on local real estate web sites like bostonapartments.com and boston.com — keeping their vast apartment database up to date on all the high-traffic real estate web portals.
Since the launch of the new web site on a private, dedicated web server in August of 2005, web traffic has doubled to an average of 300,000 hits per month. As a result of the increased traffic, search engine optimization, and automated hand-shaking with other sites, eastcoastrealty.com has climbed to the number one spot on google for the search term "east coast realty" — beating out many competitor sites.
