3D Aerial Video For Real Estate

To use a cliché saying, “location, location, location.” With more and more activity and business happening online it is only expected that the home buying process is hugely digital. People want to know everything about a house before going to view it, and location is a vital aspect of choosing a home. It’s all very well to say that a property is “overlooking spectacular ocean views” or “nestled at the end of a quiet street,” it is another to be able to show that via aerial video.

REALTOR® Website Upgrade: Sooke Homes

Bruce and Linda MacMillan are a fabulous husband and wife real estate team located in beautiful Sooke, BC. This website upgrade began when the MacMillans needed new listing feeds added to their website. To access these new reciprocity listing feeds, we needed to upgrade their site to our new VREB Listings Administration which is part of our Pyramid CMS. Now when visitors come to their website, they can easily view all homes listed for sale in Sooke or Metchosin.

With the new VREB Listings Administration, Bruce and Linda are easily able to make edits and changes to all of their listings. Every listing is automatically updated when it is uploaded to Matrix. The listings administration allows the MacMillans make changes to listing information on their personal website.

Website Upgrade: Cherish Community Living

The website for Cherish Living may not look much different, but the back end sure does! We’ve done a major website upgrade for CherishVictoria.ca to our fabulous Pyramid CMS. Previously Cherish had to send all change requests into us as there was no CMS (Content Management System) in place from the previous designer. Now they can make changes to all their page content themselves, making updates quick and easy!
