We didn’t just launch a new company website—we launched a completely redesigned, feature-rich, custom tool that has already been honored with several awards by trusted real estate news source REAL Trends. For those of you that have yet to experience the new williampitt.com, it’s time to see what everyone’s raving about, and prepare to be amazed by the technological innovation that lies just before your fingertips.
REAL Trends recognized our site as the #1 real estate website nationally in the category of Best Design, #3 in Best Mobile Experience, #3 in Best Neighborhood Pages, and #5 in Best Overall Real Estate Website. After analyzing nearly 750 different real estate sites, REAL Trends described our new website as one of its “personal favorite websites with amazing integration of live listings on the homepage,” arriving confidently at these results. The revealed awards mark REAL Trends’ first annual Real Estate Website Rankings, which were decided by a judging panel of real estate chief technology and marketing officers across the United States.
“The REAL Trends recognition is an incredible accomplishment for our firm and a testament to all of the hard work we have put into our new web platform,” said our firm’s President and CEO, Paul Breunich. “The new design was 18 months in development, and the end result is a powerful and improved website that marks a bold, fresh look for our firm. We hope that our online guests will agree that the look, feel and functionality are, in a word, spectacular.”
Some new features available on the site include high-resolution photography, property video clips on the home page, robust content on every listing page, and vast customization capabilities allowing the website to display specific details and information depending on the user’s location. Other custom features present individuals with the ability to tailor the site with personal preferences, and include stronger search tools with suggested keywords and lifestyle search options, as well as detailed community profiles with useful local knowledge focusing on accessibility to nearby schools, precise travel times to Grand Central in New York City and more.
Whether the user is on a mobile device, tablet or desktop computer, the responsive new web design fits perfectly on every screen, allowing for convenience and easy navigation. There is also a strong international component to the new site, with options to choose from 19 languages and dialects, as well as search tools for properties in key real estate markets throughout the world. Prices can additionally be converted into more than 50 currencies, and are updated daily with the latest exchange rates. Compared to our competitors, property updates on the MLS occur far more often, with a total of 10 MLSs supplying information on more than 160,000 regional listings and nearly 1 million sold property records.
“The list of exciting new features is nearly endless, offering tremendous advantages to both sellers who work with us and buyers searching for that perfect home,” said Chief Operating Officer Vin Socci. “It all began with a vision to create the best website in real estate, and I am so proud of the final product. The site truly reinforces our commitment to supporting our sales force and our clients with the most cutting-edge technology in the industry.”
