We designed and developed a bespoke website for Chaffers, an estate agent in Dorset. The website also integrates with JuPix so properties across their four offices are in sync with the website.
Chaffers is an established Estate Agent based in Shaftesbury, with office locations is Gillingham, Sturminster Newton and Wincanton. They came to us looking for us to redesign their website in order to make it more user-friendly and professional.
The new Chaffers homepage is elegant and user-focused. We prominently display a search box, prompting users to begin their property hunt. Below that we have blocks for Sales, Lettings and Surveys; Chaffers three main areas of expertise.
The Properties archive is clean and easy to navigate. The search form has additional fields, such as price range and radius in order to help visitors filter their search. On each property we’ve highlighted price, the number of bathrooms, bedrooms as well as the town location.
In order to ensure stellar user experience, we’ve also included the contact details for all offices, so if a visitor needs help, they can immediately get in touch.
The new property pages are impactful, with a full-width hero section showing off a featured image of each property. We’ve broken up the main property information into easily digestible tabs. This means that information is easy to find, and users don’t have to do a lot of scrolling. On every property page, we have a form to request a viewing as well as the contact details of the specific office marketing the property.
Chaffers use the JuPix system to manage their properties on all the PC’s across their four offices. The new website needed to automatically pull these properties from this JuPix feed and display them on the website. We coded a JuPix integration for WordPress that fetches the properties every hour to ensure the website is always up-to-date.
As with all our web design projects, we gave every consideration to how the new Chaffers estate agent website would display on a mobile device. Ensuring it loaded quickly and had an intuitive search were of utmost importance to the success of this project.
We really rated their professionalism, quality, responsiveness and overall value. We loved working with authenticstyle.
