Established in 1969, Weichert Realtors has grown from a single office to 500 locations in nearly 40 states and Washington, DC. Weichert partnered with DefinedLogic to enhance their overall digital experience and provide prospective home buyers a unique platform to search listings and connect with agents.

The challenge was to optimize the way people search for homes online by providing a personalized digital experience across all channels and then connect them to an agent when they are ready to take the next step in their home buying journey.

Intro

Rethinking home base

Strategy

Reinventing the digital approach in the real estate sector is no easy feat since today’s home buyer is more knowledgeable than ever before. We wanted to support the buyer throughout their journey from browsing listings to getting expert advice from the Weichert team. We arrived at a solution that supported the entire home buying lifecycle with an intuitive and robust search capability and educational tools such as the “How much can I afford?” calculator to get the buyer excited and informed. In addition, we connected the buyer to a Weichert agent through easy to find contact information and forms so that the customer could be supported both online and off.

Execution

To deliver this enhanced user experience, we re-designed site and page navigation, enhanced search to include multiple filters, added map functionality, and created a personalized experience by showing each customer homes based on previous search preferences.

Property listing pages were redesigned to include prominent calls to action allowing customers to quickly request more information thereby creating an opportunity for Weichert agents to be connected with new, qualified customers through their brokers network.

Understanding the importance of mobile and tablet usage in the home search process, we focused on building an adaptive site that seamlessly transitioned between web and mobile.
