Homes of Aiken
Challenge:Donna Taylor, VP at Meybohm, has had an Perl/CGI based engine running her HomesofAiken.com. She was unable to update and the homes for the home page slideshows, and updates made in one part of the site were not reflected everywhere they should have been. Additionally, the site software was suffering from a cgi core leak that had ballooned the site’s size to over 75 gig of hard drive space, resulting in slow response times.
Result: The site layout was freshened and updated with Honey House Web Designs’ RealtorBuzz Content Management System. RealtorBuzz allows Donna to make updates on her listings and have the updates reflected immediately across her site. Each listing now has its own photo slideshow and Google location mapping, and she has full control over featured homes, testimonials, and site contact emails.
