Rimontgó’s website receives another international award

Leading Real Estate CertificationRimontgó’s website has earned yet another international award by Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, an international organization which brings together more than 500 estate agencies specializing in high-end property, including Rimontgó. The prize awarded to Rimontgó in the last ceremony for the Website Qualification Awards earns them the status of Best Interactive Website.

Rimontgó’s nomination for the prize stems from their LeadingRE 2014 Website Quality Certification, granted to them from following an analysis carried out by an external consultancy company based on variables such as usability, level of interactivity, design and content, navigation privacy, search engine optimization (SEO) and the ability to adapt to mobile formats. Rimontgó first received the certification in 2009, but the criteria are applied and evaluated again each year. Since then, Rimontgó has been continually awarded the designation.

Award-winning website of RimontgóWith this certification, different companies can send their applications to Leading Real Estate’s panel, providing appropriate information according to the category. It is worth highlighting that this time the decision was a unanimous one: Rimontgó’s website was nominated for the Best Interactive website, competing with two other Californian companies, Willis Allen Real Estate (La Jolla) and Zephr Real Estate (San Francisco). Interestingly Rimontgó is the only estate agency not from the USA who was nominated for the international award. The prizes were handed over during a ceremony at The Wynn hotel in Las Vegas, for the annual conference held by Leading Real Estate, with both José Ribes (Director-General of Rimontgó) and Ignacio Artagoitia, the IT, Systems and Web Manager were both present on behalf of the Valencian-based agency.

Other essential features in favour of the winner were their fully customizable alert subscription, the option of saving different properties as favourites, the online property viewing request system, being able to use the  Oort Cloud, their innovative property comparison tool which considers variables such as price, lifestyle and a range of other characteristics (e.g. ‘with exceptional views’ or ‘near to a golf course’),  for each of the properties selected by the user.

Rimontgó’s various web pages (available in 6 different languages) boast more than 20 international awards between them, including the Best Overall Website 2010, Best New Media Marketing 2011 and Most Innovative Marketing Technique 2012.

This impressive digital-based work is carried out by Rimontgó’s very own IT team, lead by Ignacio Artagoitia alongside programmers Francisco Belmonte, Christian García, José Sancho and Alejandro Soriano. This team is responsible for the innovative development of Rimontgó’s web pages, including the input from estate agents as well as clients and website users, also requiring an international team of seven translators.  The IT team at Rimontgó is also responsible for the European Real Estate Network’s website, as a founding associate member.
