BEST OVERALL

Best overall speaks to every element of website design and development—design, navigation, user experience, imagery, mobile and video. For brokerage websites, we looked at branding, navigation, search, property detail pages, community pages and overall lead and registration flow. These are the best of the best.

BEST COMMUNITY

Websites that provide quick searches for towns and communities make it easier for visitors to find specific information. Landing pages should provide emotional insight on each community, such as amenities, average home price, market data, imagery, facts, maps and lifestyle.

BEST DESIGN

Website design and user experience often depends on users understanding of how the website works. There should be a unique value proposition (UVP) addressed on the home page that states who you are, what you do and why people should care. User experience consists of several variables including layout, clear navigation, usability and branding on a website.

BEST MOBILE

The idea of responsive web design is to make websites that fit multiple screen sizes. For the design and development, it means one version of the website that adjusts to both desktop computers and mobile devices. Fluid layouts, flexible images and individually catered landing pages are the three technical ingredients for responsive web design.

BEST PROPERTY DETAIL

These pages give your customers detailed data and information at the property and market level. Home details that include historical sales price, year of sale, tax information, bedrooms and baths and other data points should be included. Also, a highly ranked website will allow users to easily query for comparable sales.
