Tuesday January 12th (Seattle, WA): LuxuryRealEstate.com unveils the new face of its award-winning website - the #1 online portal for global luxury properties and the professionals representing them.
The redesigned home page is the first phase of a complete re-launch of LuxuryRealEstate.com. The new website will include a completely revamped property, agent, broker and luxury community search, along with better international coverage of luxury communities and property listings around the world.
Beyond the more polished and improved look and feel of LuxuryRealEstate.com, the redesign introduces under-the-hood improvements that might not be obvious to the casual visitor, but will improve the user experience and increase exposure of luxury homes listed on the site. Features include - faster page loading, more search engine friendly, and more future safe with upgraded web browsers. Utilization of Twitter posts and Microformats as well as RSS and Atom feeds will allow for easier user subscriptions and syndication of editorial content.
