We’ve been working with Pearson Ferrier Estate Agents for a fair few years now, both on their Estate Agents Website and on various marketing and promotion design and print.
In late 2014 the business started to franchise out their estate agency business and rapidly grew from 5 branches in the north of Manchester to close to 20 branches nationwide by the start of 2016. We designed and printed a franchise prospectus detailing what was involved in buying a estate agent franchise.
We started to look at re-developing their website early in 2015 to bring their property search facility, run by Vebra into a WordPress based website. The new site needed to have a lot of functionality, be setup to easily add in new branches quickly once they opened and of course be be built responsively and with a good SEO structure.
We built the property search and display facility using the excellent Vebra Properties for WordPress plugin created by UltimateWeb which pulls in all the property info for all branches from the Vebra API. We worked with UltimateWeb to add custom features to the plugin to suit the Pearson Ferrier website.
The site is constantly being worked on to improve the property search as well as ongoing SEO and content additions.
