REAL Trends. Inc., the undisputed leader and trusted source of news, analysis, and information in residential real estate, released the top residential real estate brokerage, team and association/MLS websites in its 2018 REAL Trends Website Rankings.
REAL Trends ranked residential real estate websites based on their excellence in the following categories: Best Overall, Best Video Strategy, Best Design, Best Property Detail Page, Best Community Page, Best Mobile Experience and Best Association Website. “Our team analyzed all aspects of these websites, everything from brand messaging, transitions between desktop to mobile, design, navigation and the user experience,” says Brent Driggers, web strategist for REAL Trends.
Websites were judged using a list of criteria in five critical areas including mobile experience, use of video, neighborhood & community pages, property detail pages and design. Sites that scored highest in all five areas were named Best Overall.
Crye-Leike.com won two distinct awards. The first award was recognition in the “Best Overall” website category with a ranking in the top 25 sites nationally. The second award was in the the “Best Property Detail Page” category with a ranking in the top 10. Of note out of all the sites selected in winning categories, crye-leike.com is one of the few developed in-house.
“A brokerage’s or team’s website is often the first interaction a real estate buyer or seller has with the firm. It’s important that it be clear, attractive and easy to use,” says Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. “REAL Trends web consultants have spent the last three months reviewing brokerage and team websites to rank them in six critical areas. Real estate brands now have the ability to see the very best residential real estate websites from across the country and compare their websites to these sites. It is a valuable tool to be able to benchmark one’s own website efforts with their peers.”
