Map-Based Search Improves the Home Buying Experience

Bennion Deville Homes, one of the leading independent real estate brokerages in the United States, recently rolled out a map-based search interface on its freshly updated website, This new tool gives site users the ability to comb through troves of listings in an intuitive, user-friendly interface that enriches the home search experience. The upgraded search functionality is part of a multi-phase website push Bennion Deville Homes announced in November of 2017, starting with a site refresh emphasizing the unique, desirable Southern California lifestyle in a clean, upscale aesthetic. Additional phases and site amenities are set to release in the coming months as the brokerage continues its endeavor to offer the ultimate digital real estate hub for Southern California property, lifestyle, and industry information.

“The new map-based search feature on will make your home search that much easier,” says Bob Bennion, Co-Owner of Bennion Deville Homes. “Our goal is to elevate the industry standard and continue to set the bar for the information brokerages provide the public and the packaging in which it is delivered. By combining the power of map-based search with expert lifestyle information about the communities we serve, consumers can research the home they want in a neighborhood that offers them the lifestyle they desire, all in an elegant format that reflects the enviable, cool Southern California style.”

Bob Benion and Bob Deville set the industry standard for leadership and vision, pushing to improve the client experience in all phases of the real estate process.

Now that map-based search is added to the list of site offerings, additional tools may be developed to make the listing search and marketing process even more dynamic.

A New World of Possibilities

The new map-based search feature gives users the ability to dive deeper into their property search and add additional layers of search criteria to narrow down prospective properties. In addition, the search widget offers radius, square, and polygon tools to set the area on the map, giving users ultimate control over the cities, communities, and neighborhoods they want to browse for listings. By incorporating map-based search into its site’s repertoire, Bennion Deville Homes can now move on to creating additional features and tools that build off the enhanced search feature, opening up a wide range of possibilities for what is to come next to its digital platforms.

Adds Bob Deville, Co-Owner of Bennion Deville Homes, “Now that map-based search is fully rolled out, our team is hard at work on the next big thing. As a national real estate leader, our goal is to stay ahead of major trends and push the curve, and do so ethically. By setting measured goals and adapting to changes in the market, including consumer trends and expectations, we have created a dynamic, engaging, and powerful website that gives users what they need in a concise platform. Since launching the updated late last year, our website numbers, which were already healthy, have seen tremendous growth in visitors and time on site, due to the wealth of information we offer and the site’s beautiful layout. In addition, our other digital and offline efforts, including social media activity, print ads, and eBlast campaigns, work in concert to drive a steady stream of authentic, engaged users.” Elevating the Industry Standard

The new, which launched in November 2017, now boasts map-based search, with more innovative tools on the way.
Bennion Deville Homes launched the new in November of 2017, emphasizing community and lifestyle information to go with essentials such as agent listing and MLS search portals. The results thus far have been spectacular, with users spending more time on the site and browsing more pages than ever before.

The refreshed launch marked a major update to Bennion Deville Homes’ digital presence and made a statement about the company’s commitment to creating an authentic experience for everyone. The Marketing and Technology team sought to focus on ways to differentiate from the standard real estate website, with user benefit the focal point of that brainstorm. After months of research, note-taking, and many hours of discussions, they found the gap: Community and neighborhood lifestyle information. “We find that more of our clients, and agents, are seeking lifestyle information to help decide where to settle down next, especially when it comes to the resort market of the Greater Palm Springs Area, and relocation markets in San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties,” continues Bennion. “Most real estate websites plug you into the MLS, but that only scratches the surface. What is it like to truly live, work, and play within the community? With a treasure trove of unique, authoritative content, and more on the way, we deliver a powerful snapshot of experiencing the community as both a resident and a visitor.”

Concludes Deville, “We are proud of the unique direction we have taken with and the continuous enhancements, such as map-based search, we are adding to the site. We look forward to continuing to serve the residents of Southern California with the elite touch of class, stringent code of ethics, and dedication to positive results our clients have come to expect from Bennion Deville Homes and its agents. At Bennion Deville Homes, we open doors and unlock possibilities.”
