The Xanadu Group is a modern, luxury home builder in Los Angeles. They have just completed a stunning $2.2m home in the Hollywood Hills that is on the market now. HGTV has filmed a pilot for a reality show following these young dynamic high-end builders from project to project.
Recently, I worked on a project for local Denver/Boulder realtor Amy LaBorde. She had several different sites to handle the many types of listings she handles – Denver vs. Boulder, For Sale vs. For Rent, Furnished/Unfurnished, etc.
Using the WP-Property Plugin and some hours of modification, we were able to create a streamlined property search function. All search results are returned on a single page – “properties” – and a sidebar search widget refines the results.
For the Home Page, I wanted to have a cool, stylized way to carry out a quick search by region and for sale/ for rent. I crafted image checkboxes to feed the search. Check it out!
Norbert found me through the Graph Paper Press showcase. He’s a photographer from Palo Alto who does a lot of newspaper and magazine work. Before he found me, he was using LiveBooks (at about $50.month) to manage his site. Using Sidewinder with few modifications, he got a big improvement over what he had!
