April 7, 2011 - Costa Rica real estate company, TicoRealty S.A. has undergone a complete website makeover to keep up with the times.
TicoRealty S.A. opened its doors for the first time in 2003 because the current owners wanted to provide quality real estate services for expats in Costa Rica. Since then, TicoRealty S.A. has turned from a two person company into a large scale operation.
“The idea to change the website look and feel came from wanting to make the website more attractive to its users and to get rid of its 1990’s look.” said Rosario Hoeffner, President and owner of the company.
In addition to the changes to the website template, a new real estate listing manager software has been installed which will give the employees and visitors new features such as virtual tours, comments on individual listings and a more attractive and easy to use layout.
The main addition to their website is their classified ads and a community section. These new sections allow the user to create a profile which will then give them access to interact in the community pages as well as the ability to place classified ads that are related to the country of Costa Rica.
In order to access these new features, the user will have to create an account and once logged in, the users will also be able to communicate with one another as well as ask and answer questions that will be automatically posted on the website.
“With the growing popularity of internet social media,” said Jacinto Alfaro, general manager of TicoRealty S.A., “internet users are looking for websites that will captivate them and hold their attention which is exactly what we are aiming to provide.”
The community section of the website is still a work in progress according to Jacinto Alfaro as they plan on releasing new community features in the future that will be aimed at Costa Ricans and people looking to buy real estate in Costa Rica.
