WHAT’S ON THE OUTSIDE MATTERS

Put your best foot forward, no matter what device your clients are using. Responsive websites are the best way to target all mobile users with full consistency of your brand.

Less is more

User experience & behaviour research shows that simple navigations with less menus, as well as clean and image-driven pages, perform better. Our websites reduce the clutter, and enhance your online image.

A better focus

Design efforts are put into factors that keep people on your website – big beautiful photos, video tours and other impactful content. Analytics prove that text-heavy pages such as buyers/sellers, sale stages & tax information pages get very little to no traffic at the end.

Always Responsive

Our websites show well from small handhelds (such as iPhones) to large desktops (such as iMacs). Mobile-responsive websites have been a standard for us for years already. Our analytics show more than ⅓ of real estate website traffic is from mobile devices.

Elegant & Clean Design

Clean & simple layouts, modern flat UI design, big & bold elements where it matters – not only does it look good, it makes it easy to navigate for your customers and lead to better retention & conversion rates.

The sky is your limit

While are our base templates have been thoughtfully crafted by our in-house design team, we offer varying degrees of customization so that you can uniquely showcase your tenure, strengths, and marketing tactics for the public.

Our Tech Stack
Is beyond Great

Performance under the hood

When it comes to technology, we are no slouches. We spare no expense in regards to our server costs.

Built For Real Estate Exclusively

Spend less time managing your website, more time selling. Our PHP (same language upon which Facebook™ is built) based engine was built from ground-up to effectively handle real estate listings, photos, floorplans & videos in the most efficient manner possible.

Pre-Scaled For Mobile Photo Galleries

All gallery images are pre-optimized to multiple size stages so it loads faster on smartphones, tablets, laptops and large desktops. These extra efforts put in by our engineers provide a superior solution for mobile browsing.

Cloud-Based, Off-Loaded Photo Storage

New feature (April 2017) – Off-loaded media storage on a global distribution network means faster load time on all of our websites while reducing the load burden on high-traffic times. This also allows for our websites to be more versatile with better security & even higher uptime, and load faster from around the world, not just North America!

Dedicated Server Environment for Premium Features and Tight Security

Here at Brixwork we build on dedicated servers for full control of the environment, so that even the hardware & server settings are optimized for our real estate client segment only – for a smoother running website with minimal interference.

Mobile-First From The Core

Our back-end framework is built on a responsive core called Bootstrap (developed by the engineers at Twitter), and many of our new websites’ front-ends are built on the same platform since 2016. More than a third of real estate website traffic is mobile-originated.
