A few weeks ago, I released Prudential Steamboat Realty’s new site into the wild. It is my first (but not last) large site built in Django to go live. As usual, ashwebmedia did a great job on redesigning the site and building the user interface.
Prudential gave me the opportunity to scrap their existing property search and build a new one from the ground up. When I’d used local real estate searches in the past, I found them to be pretty poor from a design and user interface standpoint. I took my insight as an end-user along with Prudential’s input to create a more pleasant search experience for their visitors. The initial feedback we have received has been very positive.
Listings are downloaded nightly via FTP and parsed into the database by a Django script that also handles geocoding on the fly for every property as it goes.
Lots of other features on this one, all built in a fraction of the time it would have taken me without using Django, including, a CMS, blog, RSS Feeds, community calendar, and CRM.
