We positioned CORE’s website as a premier luxury real estate experience. We had to deliver on the promise of truly high end performance and capability.
What my team and I built left nothing on the table.
Perchwell - RETS (Real Estate Transaction Standard) Integration through a custom plugin
Create a visually stunning website which easily guides new homebuyers through the thousands of New York luxury real estate listings.
The REBNY Real Estate Transaction Standards feed was out of date and had wildly varying data formatting. CORE partnered with Perchwell to create a best-in-class RETS feed. However, with 24,000 listings and over 700,000 images, no existing WordPress importer would do the job. So I set out to craft a custom importer built for WordPress.
Every hour, thousands of properties and their large, beautiful images are routed through WordPress into Algolia for crafting a seamless user experience. I leveraged Algolia for filtering/faceting, autocomplete, relevancy, and more. This creates a lightning fast search experience rivaling those of companies many times their size.
