Whistler Real Estate Listings is a website operated by Matthew Callaghan, a licensed REALTOR® Sutton Group – West Coast Realty. The website features properties from the Whistler, Pemberton, and the Sea-to-Ski Corridor. New properties are updated daily and pulled directly from the popular RETS feed.
Due to the large number of pages generated by the properties, WordPress was used as it's content management system (CMS). WordPress and it's plugin create a user-friendly platform that is also easy to optimize. Advanced Search functions have been implemented for the property search.
Whistler Real Estate Listings called for a few advanced functions beyond standard content based websites. The RETS feed provided by the client contained all the real estate information to automatically generate posts so the development of a script that checked the feed regularly was necessary. After the design, the template and the sliced job were implemented into Wordpress to take advantage of the advanced ready-to-go functions within the CMS. A news area was recently added to allow the site to offer different types of content, beyond straight properties for sale.
After integrating the template and working the RETS property feed into Wordpress, the rest of the site came together from there. Wordpress handled all the content management by sorting all the data from the feed. Basic optimization was done to improve search engine visibility and a news area was created to promote a wider variety of keywords.
