Coldwell Banker

Fully Responsive Property Search Web App

National Realty Trust (NRT) is the largest U.S. residential real estate brokerage. They came to Happy Cog to consolidate several of their Coldwell Banker Homes sites into a single site with a fully responsive property search web-app. NRT already has a world-class engineering team but it was my job to flesh out the initial behavior of the app. What started as simple jQuery-powered interactions became a fully baked Backbone.js app that they took and modified to accommodate their internal API and final implementation needs.

Did I mention that it was fully responsive? This was by far the most challenging front-end project I've taken on. At the time, not even Zillow or Trulia had fully responsive layouts for their list-with-map search pages but, rather, served mobile-friendly experiences with their native mobile apps.
