The ‘Most Effective SEO Strategy Award’ is an honor Crye-Leike’s website has received from LeadingRE in the past. The company’s website was recognized with this award for having a strategy that makes it easy for consumers to find the website, with competitive positioning on popular search engines, unique content focusing on key markets, effective incorporation of social media and other tactics.

O’Connor adds, “With over 90% of people using the Internet in their home search, it's essential for any successful real estate firm to have an engaging, informative and easy-to-use website.”

 

Crye-Leike rolled out an upgraded version of its award winning website in 2012 in order to provide its customers with more helpful features, information and local market updates on the zip codes Crye-Leike serves.

 

“With Crye-Leike winning these website awards, that is just one additional reason our customers can feel confident they’re working with a knowledgeable, tech-savvy company of Realtors,” said Crye-Leike Cofounder & CEO Harold Crye. “Offering unsurpassed service to our clients has been Crye-Leike’s mission since opening in 1977, and one way we do that is by offering our customers and agents cutting-edge services and technology tools like the powerful website we’ve built.”
