Web Makeover for your New Orleans Realtors

By
Real Estate Agent with Crescent City Living, LLC 77619

Jane and I have tossing around several ideas for weeks now on what we wish our Web sites could do and what we wish could be handled electronically. Now we're moving forward with making that happen. We have been subscribing to a couple "off-the-shelf" packages designed for Realtors, but they were too general most of the time for our clients and our New Orleans real estate market.

Neither of us are the most tech saavy people on the planet, but I know enough just to be dangerous and Jane is always willing to learn. So now we're reinvesting into a more persnalized Web solution designed form the ground up. It's not cheap, but it's also not cheap to spend all those monthly fees with very few results. And we also feel like we waste prescious time when we need a change made, and someone at a remote centralized location has to put is in line behind every else in the country with that package.

We'll let you know how it all goes. We have a draft of all we plan to do, and as far as I can see out there after considerable benchmarking, no other New Orleans or Northshore real estate site has this kind of secure functionality centered around the client. We're collecting bids on the job now and should move forward in the coming week.

Now that you have your site up and running, how do you feel about it?

Hope you survived the hurricaine + the snowstorm!  Crazy weather this year.

Your Louisiana friend.

Ann,

It's just the first phase that rolled out, but we're loving it. We love the control and we love the specialization. I'd say you're seeing perhaps 20% of the functionality that's coming. It's beingrolled out over the next year or so and we're quite excited. And last but certainly not least, we are soving hundreds per month from the old off the shelf web site + CRM packages we were subscribing to.

I will say it's a time adjustment. Time management is essential to keeping it all up to date, and we're still working all that out. In the meantime, we're very happy with the response so far.

As far as the snow goes..WOW! That was unexpected but fun. Palms weighted down with three inches of snow is not something you see everyday! The picture below was when the snow had just started.

Our house Dec 97...can you believe this is New Orleans?
