Better Core, Better Functions, Better Real Estate Website Performance Achieved throughout 2021

The entire real estate industry had to adapt, shuffle & grow to continue serving the public in one of the most essential services. The COVID-19 pandemic has made online presence more important than ever for our clients, and we’ve made many improvements to our real estate website system for better results. 

Since March 2020, The Brixwork creative squad moved quickly to pivot and offer even more digital/web based branding & marketing support, such as:

  • Digitized listing/buyers presentations on Google Slides
  • Better designed Canva/Mailchimp templates to give our Realtors® autonomy and agility in their online marketing.
  • Higher-grade storytelling web designs, and more uniquely branded/styled custom websites for an even bigger impact online.
  • Increasing range of options & modules available on our websites to bring even better online presence for our real estate professionals.
