How do you like it? Our new website launches
Tenants and landlords looking to choose the perfect property partner can now browse our new-look website. As a leading South West London letting agent we know that the capital's rental market is equal to the homeowner market, and that tenants and landlords deserve a first-class service.
We therefore asked award-winning website designers Starberry to create us a dynamic new site to match the fast-moving and increasingly sophisticated lettings market in Wimbledon and Battersea. Alex Winchester, founder and Director at Winchester White, says: “My brief was very simple: Make a site that is ridiculously easy to use while having design at the forefront of your mind at every single stage.”
Alex Winchester adds: “We wanted to keep our clients - landlords and tenants - as the focus of our web offering and we knew that Starberry were renowned for creating sites that were user friendly. We were also keen to avoid the feeling of trawling through pages and pages just to get to a property or piece of information. Even our new homepage allows users to start filtering results - choosing either short or long lets, the location, number of bedrooms, property type and price range - all without navigating away."
The Winchester White wish list also included the desire for a responsive website with fast loading pages, a professional look and a user-friendly page design. The new site also needed to be highly secure, fired by a cutting edge back-end to boost the user experience and include lots of filters so tenants can find the exact property they are looking for with the minimum of fuss.
The result is there for users to explore but at a glance, the new website informs and delivers without the need to keep clicking and delving into a matrix of sections and sub sections. Alex adds: "We wanted our new site to have all the functions and information you would find on a sales website as , for us, the lettings market is just as important and may even eclipse residential sales in the capital in the coming years.”
Online searches with Winchester White now yield relevant local area guides, street views of neighbourhoods, Google map locations and the nearest schools. There are also functions for tenants to save their favourite properties without having to register and for landlords to request a free valuation on a property they wish to let. Added extras include a guide for tenants, a guide for landlords, a customer testimonial area and direct links to our social media channels.
Alex says he chose Starberry because they’ve got a track record for building exceptional award winning websites which fused perfectly with my ambition for our new site.
