A few years back, Meybohm Realtors was one of the first new media innovators in the Augusta area. They were also one of the pioneers that helped bring real listings direct to the consumer using the Internet. At the time, Powerserve had the privilege of working with the Augusta-based real estate company to develop their first-generation web presence. Continuing on that path of innovation, Meybohm Commercial Properties tapped Powerserve to help make their latest vision a reality: A new real estate website dedicated to the commercial market.

Meybohm came to us with an existing design concept that needed to be pushed across the finish line. Powerserve was able to expand their design concept, making it more user-friendly and easier to navigate while being progressive and eye catching.

Allowing the website visitor to quickly search their available listings was key for Meybohm, but because the listings are displayed through a third party they were having difficulty making it easy for the visitor to search.  We created a quick-search form that allows people to easily search for properties from the homepage, something Meybohm was originally told wasn’t possible. The site also enables Meybohm to easily display agent profiles and listings on the same page, display multiple featured properties on the homepage, and show off some of their properties in a large splash image on the homepage.

Powerserve was proud to work with Meybohm, a company with a tradition of leadership and excellence in the real estate business. The website development project was huge success. We were able to capture their vision and deliver the final product very quickly – just in time for a New Year’s launch!

Our latest website launch was an important project for us. We were essentially extracting our commercial properties division out of our main website and giving it a web presence of its own. We had approached Powerserve about the project after several months of working with a freelance web developer. We challenged Powerserve with a tight deadline but they stepped up and actually exceeded our expectations finishing the site well before the deadline! And because they’re a full-service web development firm they had the knowledge and expertise to “plus it” with some innovations that enhanced the way our property listings are presented to the consumer online. Within a matter of weeks, we had a fully functional website to promote our business.Jennifer Samuelson, Meybohm Commercial Properties
