Peter Heron

Friday, 14 February 2014

Peter Heron are Sunderland's leading estate agent and required a new brand and website to bring their image up to date across web and print.

Having done their previous website, we fully understood the message and brand that we needed to bring across and most of all the best customer experience on the site.

At the time of writing, over 60% of visitors to the website were from a mobile device (phone or tablet) and we had to ensure that the website worked perfectly on all devices.

A new technology called responsive web design had been lurking around for a while and so we thought we would jump in straight at the deep end and build the new Peter Heron website with a responsive design. This means that the website will respond and size down depending on the screen size it was viewed on.

Read more on web design.

Peter Heron also use an estate agency platform called Vebra for uploading all of their properties to and on their previous site this would link off to Vebra for the property search which wasn't ideal. So for the new site we decided to import all the properties on a daily basis direct from Vebra and then create our own property search that works perfectly within the website.

The results look fantastic if we say so ourselves.

And to top it all our we embedded our own Fresh Admin CMS to allow Peter Heron to update the rest of their website. Neat, huh?
