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. But luckily that’s exactly what you can do now, courtesy of Google Earth and CorkScrew Visuals Inc.

New REALTOR® Website: Keith Ferguson

As a real estate agent for over 20 years, Keith Ferguson has an in-depth knowledge of real estate and consistently ranks among the top REALTOR®s in the Victoria real estate market. Keith came to us looking for a new website, something clean and classy, to better represent himself.

Keith's Old Website

Keith’s old website

His old site was busy and disorganized, along with the fact that it was not mobile friendly.

We used the blue colour Keith is fond of to create a clean and classly layout, along with a crisper more finished logo for Keith. Only using the blue for subtle colour highlights throughout the new website. Continue reading

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.

New VREB Listing Administration for Real Estate

We have been working hard to improve the VREB Listing administration for our Real Estate clients. Our previous system LIMO (Listing Inventory Management Online) has become old and outdated so it was time to make some changes!

Our new listings administration is no longer LIMO, it is now built in with our Pyramid CMS (Content Management System) which means when you login to make edits to your website content you don’t have to go anywhere else to make changes to your listings! We refer to the new listings administration as the VREB Listings Plug-in and it is being used on all new Real Estate websites and we are offering upgrades for all our Real Estate clients that are using LIMO.

The new VREB Listings is great for agents, agencies and groups of agents working together! It allows you to make updates and changes to your listings and your website content all in one convenient place. Though you won’t have to make changes often on your listings if you’re updating them in Matrix as the data is automatically grabbed from Matrix frequently. This is in place so that if you add a new listing to Matrix, it will appear on your website and if you make changes to a listing in Matrix, it will appear on your website. Continue reading
