Simple and elegant with an eye towards exceptional - words to describe both my client AND the awesome work we did for her! It begins, as most projects do, with nailing down the logo design! Our logo designer took this one and ran with it, creating a look and feel that matched Karen’s kind personality and bringing that to the forefront. The website works to highlight both her new brokerage and her clients new listings. We wanted to create a website that was easy to wander through and even easier to get lost on, showcasing a blog and her newest listings.
Marilisa Vergottini is a lovely broker with Marketplace Sotheby’s International Realty who has a passion for good staging, a smashing sense of style and a desire to help her clients find the home of their dreams. She finds her joy in the connection with her clients and she works to do more than just sell her listings - she wants everyone to know the story of the home.
Our team partnered with Marilisa and her innate style to create an elegant website, a Mediterranean look and feel for her logo and property pages that showcase the high-end photography that she uses to tell her stories. She also brought us some of the most gorgeous homes to play with! This project was so much fun and we got to be so creative throughout!

We started with a cup of coffee, as all good conversations do; walked through what he needed his website to do, what his next steps were with his marketing and what he loved most about real estate.
We scheduled a time to do a photoshoot – which was a kick! Matt has smashing taste and style, and it came across on camera so beautifully!
Matt started collecting high res photos and collateral for me and I reached out to one of my favorite logo designers. She took one look at Matt’s photos and said “Vogue. All the way.” And headed off to design a logo that felt like high-end fashion.
This was my first time working with an individual brokers’ IDX so I had a lot to learn and there were a few late nights with a glass of happiness. Thank heavens for youtube and a couple of stupid talented web developers who also speak designer and have a metric ton of patience. (Though I’m pretty sure by the time they were done with me, they’re giving up their jobs to become roofers. Maybe they’ll let me design their website…hmmmm.)
This project challenged my knowledge base, encouraged creativity and pushed our team to create an incredible website that collects leads, offers easy IDX searches and showcases his sales successes and his testimonials in a clear and creative way. We included all the bells and whistles on the site but managed to keep it clean and elegant. Matt loved it and I’m beyond thrilled to add this to my portfolio! Big shout out to an amazing client and an incredible team who made this website shine.
Work Hard. Be Nice.
RE/MAX Northwest is the largest RE/MAX in Washington State and they are still growing. They needed a website that was dynamic and engaging, but also useful. So, it needed to be pretty, but they also needed to be able to showcase properties, build out a Market Report and blogs, and showcase their current and new brokers.
It started with their tagline: Work Hard. Be Nice. We wanted to capture the kindness and values of the people that work there, embrace the largeness of the company and welcoming to potential brokers. Wordsmithing is always important; the owners had done an incredible job of putting these values into words, which made my job much easier, and helped me understand what they needed to showcase. We made recommendations on the direction for the site, but they gave our team a lot of freedom to be creative.
Each of the ten locations is highlighted individually, with custom coded IDX feeds for each location, highlighted properties and beautiful images. Custom map design, market report design and tons of research went into this project, and the clients were thrilled with how it turned out!
I’m so freaking excited to introduce this incredible website! Featuring a carefully curated collection of condos that possess the exacting standards that we expect for our clients. When we talk about the luxurious lifestyle of downtown Seattle, this is what we're talking about.
