Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 14, 2008
Beacham & Company, REALTORS® has been recognized as having one of the top real estate websites in the world by the Web Marketing Association, an organization dedicated to excellence in internet marketing.
The Beacham website, http://www.beacham.com, received a Real Estate Standard of Excellence Award for Outstanding Achievement in Website Development. The site was selected from among more than 2,400 sites in 40 countries and 96 industry categories. Beacham was the only real estate brokerage website in Georgia to win an award.
The WebAward judges included independent internet professionals representing a variety of relevant disciplines of Web site development. They judged entries on design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology.
The judges specifically applauded the site's design and layout and its use of CSS and XML coding, which allows users to interact with the site without complete page refreshes, making the site more dynamic and efficient. The result for the end user is that the site loads 50 percent faster than older technology websites.
The Beacham site was designed by Glick Interactive, an Atlanta-based web development and design firm. The lead architect on the site was Ankur Gupta and the creative director was John Fox.
Dac Carver, Vice President and Managing Broker of Beacham & Company, thanked Glick Interactive and its president, Fred Tanzella, for his team's work on the project and credited the website with being an integral part of Beacham & Company's early success.
"Buyers, sellers, and agents alike consistently tell us that they love our site, but it's nice to now have an independent group of internet marketing experts tell us that our site is among the best real estate sites in the world," Carver said. "This award is validation of Beacham's significant investment into the initial development of the website as well as the company's ongoing investment in improving the site on a consistent basis."
Now in its eleventh year, the WebAward competition has become the premier award event for web developers and marketers worldwide. The competition is the product of The Web Marketing Association, a Boston-based volunteer organization founded in 1997 and made up of internet marketing, advertising, public relations and design professionals who share an interest in improving the quality of website development and marketing on the internet.
