The Gibbons Group

The Gibbons Group is a luxury real estate firm operating in the Boston, MA area for discerning clients.

For this agency, owning their own website was a milestone, as they (like many) struggled with template farms and "real estate services" found on the web that offered custom design services. Being a concept project, , IronGlove's goal was to bring this new brand strategy together.

This website was near the final stages of development and was terminated due to late changes in scope and direction that didn't benefit the brand, project, and involved party's reputations.

Integrations and concepts working in harmony.

This was a whole new direction for the Gibbons Group. The brand strategy was developed by C&C Consulting while the design and templating were a collaborative effort between IronGlove and C&C, with input from the client. We worked from the beginning to craft wireframe concepts that were later turned into mockups and then prototypes to be built. The homepage was developed as a landing page with SEO qualities by integrating properties and meta-data, along with blog post excerpts and relevant social media and news. It was a "jumping off point" for visitors and would lead them deeper into the site. We also configured the IDX modules to have a customized output for property detail pages and even searches, blending the styling into the new brand color schema. Along with a separate blog section buildout, we configured user accounts and lead generation systems that integrated into the website's navigation and content so that everything flowed together.

Keys to Project Success

Proof-of-Concept

This was a complex build based on new branding concepts. We built the infrastructure from scratch to meet business goals.

Integrations

Contact forms, lead generation systems, IDX, and social media all worked together to help funnel and convert clients.

Blogging

Maintaining a blog, versus content-farmed posts, was critical. We created a separate blogging system for this endeavor.
