Lettings Direct is a successful letings agent based in the UK and the site is something we created ourselves on a homestead package.
The business has 2 branches and also has a newly formed property sales division.
We need to have a design that is appealling to tenants, landlords and students. Properties are exported to the site via an Iframe.
people looking to rent property generally 20 - 40 year olds, although Landlords will generally be 25 - 70
We are looking to give the website a facelift, keeping the same "house" logo and main wording (including the same font) etc, but to move away from the current feel - our corporate colour is a black background, but currently we use white on the web, so will look at both. Due to the homestead package, we would need the design images / components and to be JPEG's or GIF format.
The over-all layout is what we are currently looking for, that we can duplicate and adapt for other pages etc.
Something that looks modern and professional and easy to navigate around, but equally easy to optimise.
We'd like to have a quick property search frame on the home page that would link to the main sales or rentals pages. As well as a regional interactivve map which could link to pages - perhaps divided into say 6 / 8 sections.
We'd also like to say that we are a UK based company, so any additional images would have to have be more English than American.
