New Website: GrantWalkerRealEstate.com: We’ve worked with Grant Walker’s family for a long time, so when it came time for Grant to get into the family business and be a third-generation REALTOR®, he came to us for his website. This trust is one of the strongest testimonials we can get! A monochromatic colour scheme with bold blues really creates a strong, classy impression for Grant’s new website. Visit his site…
Website Enhancements: SaanichLegacy.ca: The volunteer-run Saanich Legacy Foundation supports community-based projects that continue to make Saanich a vibrant and caring community. They came to us with an existing website, and needed assistance in keeping it updated. Without changing the design, we put our Site Extras Kit, a version of our Content Management System, onto the back end, so their team of volunteers can easily update the content. Visit their site…
Website Re-Design: RemaxOcean.bc.ca: We launched a newly designed website for long-time clients RE/MAX Ocean Pointe, owned by Guy and Barbara Bezeau. This agency has two offices on central Vancouver Island, in Ladysmith and Chemanius, with over 25 real estate agents. Along with this new look we upgraded the Content Management System which allows them to edit content, add videos, and update their real estate property listings information. A slide show features photography of the Chemainus and Ladysmith areas. Visit their site…
