We are delighted to announce that our new website will be launched next month. A year in the making, it has been quite a journey, but we think you’ll be impressed.
The current website has been with us for the last 8 years and while it doesn’t look terrible, when we started looking at more modern websites we could see a stark difference. Venture have always been a company that has put new technology at the heart of everything we do. We like to think we’re a very forward-thinking company so this needed reflecting to our clients through a new website that was fit for purpose.
Working alongside our web developers, we’ve had a real input from the start in exactly how we want it to look and function. A contemporary look which was easy to use is what we were aiming for and I think we have even exceeded our own expectations.
We started by drawing site maps of what pages we wanted on the site, as well as looking at the content and design of each individual page. All of which has been written, designed and produced from scratch so that it was a clean slate and a completely fresh look for visitors to the site.
After that it was a case of several meetings to iron out any issues and then to hand it over to the geniuses who build the website behind the scenes. Believe us, it’s very complicated!
The site will allow people to see what properties we currently have for sale and to let in all four branches – Darlington, Chester-le-Street, Crook and Durham. As well as this, there’ll be easy access to book a sales or rental valuation on your property, see our mortgage adviser whenever and wherever is convenient for you and if you’re a tenant, to report any maintenance issues as well.
We’ve also incorporated a lot more visual media into the website, including photographs and videos, which not only makes it look more appealing but will help visitors to the site gain more of an insight about Venture as a company as well as the towns and areas that we cover.
