Personal Agent Websites
Hand-crafted, custom websites that build your personal brand to its full potential.
Gain more leads and improve your marketing with a site built to generate leads.
The best real estate websites are built around keyphrase research and search optimised content. We place calls to action that compel visitors to click, increasing your conversion of visitors to customers.
And all of our decisions are informed by measurable data.
We’ll build you a beautiful site that is immediately impressive and visually impactful.
Our primary goal is to build you a site that achieves your unique goals. But we’ll also implement best practices for the real estate industry.
Your real estate website will be successful because it’s built around your business goals and conversions.
Our real estate website developers are experts in user experience. We’ll design your site around maximising conversion rate to increase the number of visitors who become leads.
But we’ll also design it around your business so your visitors become your clients.

We also build some cool integrations with other third-party API’s that leverage data in a whole new way to help our clients provide a unique experience to theirs.

Depending on which real estate website designers you speak to, the answer to this question can vary quite significantly.
Template websites (where you apply your branding to an existing website template) can cost as little as $2,000 upfront + $100 p/month in ongoing hosting and support. While template real estate websites are quite affordable, they are very restrictive when it comes to customising them with more advanced features and integrations.
Stepps does not offer template real estate websites.
Custom websites can cost as little as $8,000 – $10,000 upfront + $300 p/month in ongoing hosting and support. However, in this price range, you are likely still limited when it comes to functionality and integrations.
If you want unlimited possibilities and a development team who can build anything and everything, with full integration with your existing systems i.e. CRM provider, data providers, social media advertising and more, these custom websites can cost as little as $20,000 up to $100,000 or more for larger scale multi-office website platforms.
There are many factors that go into how long a real estate website will take to build.
These factors include, but are not limited to:
Template real estate websites might typically get you up and running in 4-6 weeks.
Custom real estate websites can take anywhere from 3 months up to 12 months, depending on all of the factors mentioned above.
It absolutely should!
This is where it pays to work with a specialist real estate website design and development company that understands the complexities of integrating real estate CRM platforms with real estate websites.
There are countless stories of design agencies (with little to no real estate industry experience) who have designed and developed a real estate website, only to leave the real estate client with headaches because listing feeds or CRM integrations don’t work properly.
Stepps works closely with all major real estate CRM providers as well as many smaller less-known CRM providers. Beyond listing feeds, we’ve developed all sorts of interesting integrations for our clients to get more out of their CRM and website together.
This comes down to the type of website you’ve built and the level of expertise your website provider can offer.
Template websites are very restrictive to basic integrations and ‘plugins’.
Custom websites can integrate with your other platforms and technologies in many different and interesting ways but these typically need to be custom-built into your website. The only thing holding you back here is your imagination, your budget and the ability of your developer to build it!
We’ve built many unique website integrations for real estate businesses of all sizes, including:
The security of your website is often an afterthought for most real estate businesses. The focus, for the most part, is on the look and feel of the website.
But the security of your website should be taken very seriously as there is no shortage of horror stories where real estate websites have been hacked or brought down by a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack.
Stepps uses a platform called Cloudflare to protect all websites under management – which provides our clients with enhanced website security and performance upgrades.
If your website provider is allowing direct access to their servers without a firewall and CDN (Content Delivery Network) in front of your website, your site is at a significantly increased risk of attack.
Stepps also operates under a security methodology known as ‘Zero Trust’.
Zero Trust is a security framework requiring all users, whether in or outside the organisation’s network, to be authenticated, authorised, and continuously validated for security configuration and posture before being granted or keeping access to applications and data.
Some website providers deliberately spend little to no time on SEO prior to your website going live – resulting in poor search engine rankings and broken links when it does go live – so they can wedge you into expensive monthly SEO plans to fix these issues.
At Stepps, we have a dedicated SEO team who specialises in real estate SEO and we apply more than 80+ hours of SEO treatment (both technical and front end) before a website goes live.
This allows our clients to drive traffic, leads and sales from the day their website goes live which enhances their search engine rankings – instead of dealing with broken links and declining rankings.
Stepps also offer ongoing SEO treatment, exclusively to our website clients, for those who want to constantly stay ahead of their competitors on Google and other search engines.
