ABOUT HESTA HOME
Hesta Home is a Startup based in Chicago, focusing on handling search and communications for property buyers, sellers and listing agents. Hesta Home not only ensures faster communications by providing a single platform to communicate between all property stakeholders, but also enhances the property search process in a unique way through powerful tools and search criteria.
WHAT WE DID
We redesigned and made major enhancements to the front-end web application, creating an easily accessible application with intuitive navigation and a simple to use property search system. We also developed the IOS mobile application and back-end system almost from scratch, facilitating on-the-go communication and providing self-service support on a scalable platform for a rapidly evolving market.
We used AngularFire to facilitate access to the Firebase back-end services for a rapidly growing user base and to help enhance the decision-making process through lightning fast access to property data. Firebase was also deployed in the back-end using Heroku for easier setup and maintenance.
The front-e nd application was built using Angular, integrated with Google Maps and establishing connections with Firebase using AngularFire, with special focus on providing an enhanced user experience and improving the internal workflow processes for faster and fail-proof communication.
The iOS application was developed natively utilizing Swift, also making use of map services to help users locate properties easier. Special care was given to the UI / UX design to maintain a common look and feel with the web application, creating an enhanced user experience through a unified design across all application platforms.
