Loughton based new homes developer, Higgins Homes, has won the ‘Best International Developer Website’ category at the highly prestigious International Property Awards finale, which celebrates the highest levels of achievement for companies working across the property industry internationally.
Higgins Homes scooped the award for www.higginshomes.co.uk at a glitzy awards ceremony at the London Marriott, Grosvenor Square on Monday 7 December, having qualified for the finale following a ‘five-star’ win in the regional, UK finals earlier this year. The ceremony was the culmination of regional finals held across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Africa, Arabia, Europe and the UK.
The International Property Awards are judged by an independent panel of 70 industry experts, with the judges focusing on design, quality, service, innovation and originality. The judging panel is chaired by Lord Caithness and Lord Best, members of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament.
Higgins Homes is a leading developer that has successfully designed, built and managed a wide portfolio of new build and sensitively considered conversion and restoration projects across London, Essex, Hertfordshire, Sussex and Kent. Judges commended Higgins Homes’ website on its appearance, usability and reflection of the company’s ethos.
Jeremy Marcus, sales and marketing director at Higgins Homes, commented: “It is an honour to have our website recognised at such a prestigious awards ceremony where there is such strong competition. Our website combines a fully integrated and advanced mix of design and interactive tools, making the user experience as seamless and intuitive as possible.”
David Bishop, Creative Director – Web, at Frontmedia Studio Limited, which designed the website, commented: “We’ve been working with Higgins Homes for over a decade and as such, I believe we have an in-depth understanding of how they see their company and how they want to position their developments within the marketplace.”
“The redesign and continual development of the website is essential to keep the technology and appearance up to date for Higgins Homes' web-savvy users purchasing high-end property throughout London and the south east. Touchable buttons, swipeable galleries and interactive maps ensure the content is usable and interactive across all mobile devices, while a brand new CMS build on the Umbraco platform has made the content management even more flexible for the in-house marketing team.”
