Essex Apartment Homes

Reimagining a publicly-traded REIT

The leading public apartment management company on the West Coast, owning and operating hundreds of premier communities in upscale urban areas.

Essex Apartment Homes website set

A large Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) acquired our client, a smaller REIT with a portfolio of high-end apartment homes. The parent company wanted to quickly merge the two brands and launch a newsite with all the properties consolidated. We were hired based on our close working relationship withour client and the technical strength of their site.
Winning over the new client with our technical planning and expertise, we offered suggestions forimprovement from years of working in the space and were still able to execute in a very tight timeframe. The result is a site that elevates the design beyond the existing brands and delivers a best-in-classexperience for the home seeker.
