This is a large responsive website for the McKelvey Companies, a business comprised of 8 companies.Their main focus is on real estate. They have developed residential sub-divisions and commercial developments.
People are increasingly searching Google instead of the yellow pages when they want or need a product or service.
Potential customers use keywords like "plumber blacksburg", "attorney roanoke", and "cpa roanoke va".
Ranking well for search terms related to your business will bring you new business.
The first organic listing on Google gets over 42% of the clicks. That means that website is getting almost half of the visitors for that search.
The second spot gets almost 12% of the traffic .....
It gets worse from there...
The internet has revolutionized the way real estate buyers find the property they are looking for and transformed the business model for agencies & agents.
Printed fliers and newspaper advertisements are becoming less and less effective. The fact is that people hardly look at newspaper ads anymore when they are ready to buy. In fact many people don't look anywhere but the internet when they are searching for their dream house.
Now what people do is simply hop on their computer, ipad, or phone and search Google for the real property they want.
If you do not have a website or have one that does not rank well, this means that potential clients are going to your competitors.
Is that what you want to happen?
Give me a call and let me work with you to design and launch a website that presents a professional image to these potential real estate buyers. Whatever your needs, from simple to complex I can design a website that will be effective in selling the properties you have to offer.

Not too long ago, web designers had to do a separate design for each device that would be used to visit each website because they didn't display properly and didn't work across all devices. This could get expensive.
A responsive website adapts to the size of the viewing device, such as a desktop, smartphone or tablet, versus showing a separate design. So now only one design per website is needed.
