Mel Jarvis, a Victoria BC REALTOR® with Remax, has worked in the Real Estate business for over 20 years, and as a commercial pilot for over 30 years. Originally designed in 2004, Mel’s website, Homesmart.net was due for a revamp. With a narrow, left-aligned design, and an over-the-top colour scheme – it had started to look dated, especially with today’s wide-screen monitors.
The new HomeSmart.net is a modern variation on the same theme. We used the same colours, but toned them down, and used the brighter reds to draw the users eye to key content. In addition, the new site has a Feature Property on the Homepage, which Mel can change himself through the Real Estate Listing Administration, as well as two additional Feature Boxes for the Personalized Home Search and “Working with Mel”.
