Crye-Leike, REALTORS website has been voted as the best of the best.

Crye-Leike.com recently won two awards from the organization Leading Real Estate Companies Of The World at their annual 2014 meeting held in Las Vegas.

Crye-Leike’s website beat 500 other real estate companies from around the globe to win the ‘Most Effective SEO Strategy Award’ and the ‘LeadingRE.com #1 Overall Website Traffic Leader Award.’

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.

Crye-Leike’s website received the ‘LeadingRE.com #1 Overall Website Traffic Leader Award’ for being the brokerage that generated the most traffic from their website to the other affiliates belonging to the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World network. Crye-Leike.com also won this award for offering the most real estate website visitors the opportunity to search for properties in other parts of the country and the world.

"It's very rewarding for Crye-Leike’s website to be the recipient of these two prestigious awards,” said Crye-Leike's CIO and Corporate Executive Vice President Gurtej Sodhi. "This is an affirmation of the expertise of our IT staff as well as their dedication to provide the best consumer experience for all the hundreds of thousands of visitors that come to the Crye-Leike website on a regular basis for all their real estate needs."

In past years, Crye-Leike.com has received numerous other awards from LeadingRE for its demonstrated excellence in website design and content, functionality and usability, human interactivity, customer service and search engine optimization.

“Crye-Leike has demonstrated that it provides vital online resources to home buyers and sellers and it is definitely a company that’s raised the bar for best practices in real estate website design and internet communications," said LeadingRE President and CEO Pam O’Connor. “Winning a Leading Real Estate Companies of the World website award reflects a company’s commitment to the growing importance of online and mobile marketing in the real estate industry.”

 

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.”
