Hatteras, North Carolina (PRWEB) November 04, 2015 -- Midgett Realty is pleased to accept first place in VRM intel’s inaugural Best Vacation Rental Management Website Awards - 2015. Midgettrealty.com, built by digital marketing agency Bluetent, was acknowledged for its optimal “Refine Search” experience, smart availability calendars, a simplified booking process, and a seamless user experience.
“We are so excited to have been voted best vacation rental management website in our industry for 2015,” said Beth Midgett, Reservations Manager for Midgett Realty. “It’s amazing how much hard work goes into something to make it look so simplified and streamlined on the front end.”
VRM intel asked vacation rental industry professionals and social media followers to submit favorite vacation rental management websites launched in the last year. The more than two dozen website entries submitted were evaluated based on 20 metrics, including site performance, website features, user experience across multiple devices, and overall aesthetics.
“We extend a huge thanks to our Bluetent teammates. Since our partnership began in 2010, it has been a collaborative effort between our teams. Having common goals communicated and understood upfront has been a large part in the final product. With Midgett Realty’s Property Management expertise, and Bluetent’s cutting edge technology, we have formed a dynamic digital team,” said Anthony Fletcher, Midgett Realty General Manager.
“We would also like to thank our Marketing Manager, Dennis Robinson, and our Marketing Specialists, Cassie Gray and Katherine White, for their leadership on the website rebuild project. Also, a thank you to our entire staff for the shared input on the functionality of the website. We felt having input from all users was key to a successful build and our team weighed in from beginning to end, from suggestions to testing. The input was invaluable for the final product.”
While Midgett Realty took first place in the contest, vacation rental management companies in the Outer Banks, North Carolina, Deep Creek, Maryland, Tybee Island , Georgia, Winter Park, Colorado, and Park City, Utah rounded out the top five winners.
Attributes such as beautiful web design, high site speed scores, compelling lead capture, videos, virtual tours and floorplans, and cutting edge search features and availability calendars were consistent across all of the top contenders.
