What Our Real Estate Websites Include
Our sites are much more than a standard WordPress Theme. Even if you are an experienced developer, getting these to work together can sometimes be challenging. Let our years of experience help you get it right the first time and save you countless hours of reviewing documentation / "integration frustration" and ultimately money! All sites we build contain the following core features plus many more
Premium Plugins and More (Saving you up to $600+)
As you design your website, you will find the need to add some plugins for essential functionality. We include several premium plugins at no extra charge. Some of them require an annual renewal fee which we pay while we manage your site. Our real estate website design team has taken the time to review these popular plugins, and fine-tune them for your website.
The cost of these premium plugins and fees easily exceed $600 alone! Factor in the cost of a quality theme and the time it would take for you to properly set it up...you'll quickly realize it would be difficult to build a comparable site for less.

Easily create forms that a visitor must complete to receive information or reports and integrate with popular email marketing services such as AWeber and MailChimp. This premium plugin is included in all real estate websites we build at no extra cost.
Daily Backups / Peace of Mind
Whether you are updating to the latest version of WordPress or installing plugins, things can go wrong and you don't want to lose all your hard work. Our system automatically backs up your website every 24 hours and keeps a copy for 7 days. We also install a premium plugin called BackupBuddy which allows you to backup your site quickly and easily any time you want to install a new plugin or upgrade WordPress.
MapPress is the most popular and easiest way to create great-looking Google Maps and driving directions in your blog. This premium plugin is great for creating a neighbourhood map of local amenities, shopping, schools, restaurant favorites or anything else you want to show on a map.
It is more important than ever that you make it as easy as possible for visitors to find your various social media profiles and make it simple for them to share your content with others. All our sites allow you to add your social media profiles and other tools that allow your visitors to share your pages quickly and easily.
