Rockett Home Rentals are Newcastle-under-Lyme’s friendly face of lettings. Founded by Bill Rockett in 2003, they’ve gone from strength to strength with a great reputation and the reviews to back it up.

Being specialists in their local area and boasting a wealth of local knowledge, they wanted something that would convey their skills to their online visitors as well as they do in the real world. They pride themselves for sticking out from the crowd in their local area and they wanted a website that would fit the same bill. The team also wanted something that was contemporary, keeping up with the changing way consumers browse the internet.

We got straight to work coming up with stand-out ideas that would get Rockett and his team looking fresh!

We took the concept of a picture says a thousand words and ran with it. Embedded directly into their homepage we have a video showing the area that Bill and his team operate in that also shows off the quality of their properties and their branded company car. Very few agencies utilise video in this way, instantly separating them from the crowd.

As more and more users are searching for property on the move, a fully responsive site is essential! With this in mind we built the Rockett Home Rentals website fully able to adapt across all devices, ensuring landlords and tenants alike can always access the information they need. Not only is this designed to be user friendly, it’s SEO friendly too.

Another way we’ve enabled them to keep on top of their SEO game is with our back-end CMS. This allows them to easily add new content on a regular basis, keeping up-to-date with their blog and news posts establishes them as a hub for information in the local area as well as working towards ever improving their SEO.

This is what Rockett Home Rentals had to say about us...

"We have worked with Estate Apps for quite a few years, starting only with a wish list and an idea of the killer website for our business. To say they have delivered would be an understatement; every request for change has been incorporated and with the patience of Job, they have taken on all of our outrageous requests and turned them into reality.

We wanted a website that was completely different to our competitors so that when our customers visited it, they would have no doubt which site they had seen a property on.

I truly believe that our website is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition and we have Estate Apps to thank for that." Bill Rockett (Director)

For prospective tenants, we wanted finding a new property to be as easy as possible. To achieve this, we found the most visually appealing way to display properties and their details. We found that “Cards” was the quickest way to relay visual details while providing a quick summary of each property. We incorporated a “Shortlist” function to make it even easier to keep tabs on properties you’re interested in.

For landlords, they each have access to a “Landlord Login” which allows them to keep fully up-to-date with any statements and inspection reports. The landlord is notified via email as soon as new documents are available, meaning they don’t need regularly check back.

They can also easily edit their own contact details through the site. This will then notify Bill and the team of any changes so they can ensure their back-office systems are up-to-date.

We achieved something different than your average property website with this project. As well as being perfectly functional for both landlords and tenants, the design stands out as unique and modern in market that is typically quite antiquated.
