My London Home

About This Project

MyLondonHome, founded in 2002, has grown from strength to strength. Founder Steven Herd, determined to forge a new, people-focused path in the industry, resolved to strike out on his own and create an estate agency based on providing unparalleled customer service.

 

Our work for MyLondonHome involved a UX-based research phase and a collaborative feedback process using InvisonApp prototyping. It’s only when all the thoughts and ideas were analysed that we could create a unique design that represented MyLondonHome’s core values and main areas of expertise.

 

There is emphasis on social sharing for more exposure and traffic, a clear definition of audiences, a search facility that allows users to narrow down options in the quickest time possible, streamlined response forms for increased lead generation and deal flow, instant chat on every page and a valuation request model that ensures no leads are overlooked.

 

Available in six languages, the website caters for MyLondonHome’s global audience, not least with the multi-currency dropdown which updates figures daily so overseas investors are fully informed on exchange rates.

 

We are able to track customer usage, monitor data and analyse the results. Rankings are monitored so they can generate a higher level of traffic through SEO, and Response Tap allows MyLondonHome to track customer behaviour on the site so it is in a better position to meet their requirements.

 

The fully responsive site offers a variety of different search parameters including a “Culture Vulture” option which is proving very popular – clients can search for properties that are located close to galleries, theatres and other points of interest.
