In 2016, 1xINTERNET built a website for Miklaborg, an Icelandic real estate agency. Due to the growth of Miklaborg's business over the past few years, the website was no longer able to meet all of their needs. We relaunched the website using the newest version of Drupal, it features a powerful search engine, an improved UX design and API integration with a real estate management system, using our 1xDXP as the foundation.
Who is Miklaborg?
Miklaborg is one of the largest real estate agencies in Iceland. The company was founded in 2007 and currently employs around 30 people. Miklaborg was recognized as an outstanding company by Creditinfo in 2015 and has maintained that status each year since then.
Miklaborg’s website is a vital part of the company business as it is where prospective buyers can find extensive information about properties on sale and contact real estate agents directly. The majority of the data displayed on the website is retrieved from Miklaborg’s real estate management system, Homemaker, which was also developed and is maintained by 1xINTERNET.
Main features of the project
Modern UX design
The new website has a modern look with an emphasis on images to attract prospective buyers. Users can easily contact estate agents and access information about the properties for sale. Editors can now create landing pages which is a crucial part of marketing campaigns.
The most advanced feature is the integration with Homemaker’s APIs. All information about property listings is retrieved from the real estate management system and displayed directly on the website through a React application. This saves a lot of time and effort for editors.
Why was Drupal a good fit for this project?
Miklaborg already had experience with Drupal. The old website was running on Drupal 7 and Homemaker is also built in Drupal. Miklaborg is a longstanding client of 1xINTERNET and they were happy with the possibilities offered by Drupal. Miklaborg is a rapidly growing business and due to its highly scalable nature, Drupal will be able to accommodate that growth in the future.
