Challenges we faced

The project is aimed to help agents reduce the time for searching and processing clients, and buyers to select the necessary real estate in a particular area according to the specified parameters and get convenient tools that allow buyers to get the most complete and structured information about the property they are interested in and solve most issues online.

Implemented features

The server part was developed using NodeJS + MongoDB technology. A parser engine was also built that constantly monitors discounts on retailer sites and updates the existing database. To get the game results in real time, the client wished to use SocketIO technology. The entire backend structure has been developed in accordance with the best international practices, is fully documented and is ready for further expansion and support.

Implemented features

CRM included all the necessary functionality to automate the work of real estate agents. Such features were implemented as:

  • Client base management module
  •                                     
  • Agent sales tracking module, with the ability to filter by specified parameters
  •                                     
  • Template generation system for Email / SmS / Voices messages and newsletters

The functionality was implemented to add custom filters for the administrator to search for real estate by clients

Functionality was implemented for automatic customer calls in the database. A technology like Twillio was used for this module.

For the convenience of using the resource, modern technologies were used, as well as an adaptive and progressive design

An automatic notification system was implemented for both buyers and agents according to specified criteria and events.

Real estate search speed has been increased through the use of modern Algolia Search technology

Various functions of tracking user actions were added to improve the sales process and to better understand and analyze user actions in the system

We also implemented a system where the buyer could choose the date and time of showing the property of interest with an agent assigned to the object

No modern system for the sale of real estate appears without a credit calculator. And Palmettopark is no exception, we have implemented a calculator automatically adapted to each object                    real estate site

For greater convenience and accuracy of the choice by the buyer of the property of interest, a map was implemented where the user could select according to the parameters of interest all objects that meet the selected criteria, in                    a given area or in proximity with its location.

Also, a page was displayed to show full information about the object, including a gallery, amenities, location, etc.
