Hurst Tahoe Associates

Hand-Painted Interactive Map and Website Design for Realtor

Hurst Tahoe Associates is a new real estate brokerage firm located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. They needed a custom website design with MLS integration. They contacted us for something a little different than most realtors’ websites in the area.

Hurst Tahoe Associates needed all graphic and web elements that a new realtor and real estate brokerage would need, including logo, signage, business cards, and a web presence. Once the logo and branding were created and brought through all graphic design elements, we created a sitemap and wireframe for the website that would incorporate all of the needs of the client as well as MLS search integration and custom search options. One standout custom element of this website is the unique, hand-painted, Lake Tahoe map that visitors can scroll over and click on to search properties in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee regions. The result is a unique WordPress real estate website that stands out from the other realtors in the area.
