Forty Ninth Living is a Chilliwack-based real estate brokerage specializing in property management. With over 11 years’ experience in the market, their expertise and industry knowledge help people find the perfect rental across 9 housing types and hundreds of properties.
When self-motivated entrepreneur, Kristie Derkson, approached us to craft a beautiful brand identity and website for her rental property business, Forty Ninth Living, she was adamant about one thing — it needed to resonate with her audience.
She’d actually built her own Wix websites and logos before — for every one of her properties! Not only was this time-consuming, but the domain and hosting costs were starting to rack up too. Kristie knew it was time to up her game and craft a professional brand identity and a single online presence: one that reflected her business and the beautiful rentals on offer.
After a thorough discovery and strategy session talking through the best way forward, we decided to create a single brand and website for Forty Ninth Living. We began by creating an elegant, beautiful on-brand visual identity and chose to build the new website on Webflow — so that Kristie and her team could showcase all of her rental properties and easily update information about them in one place: with just one hosting fee to pay.
Not only did this save her time and money — this approach revolutionized Kristie’s workflow, reducing her frustration levels, and empowering her to simply add new property development projects. One of the new site’s biggest features was a powerful Content Management System (CMS) — one capable of handling dynamic content across the website and providing a standout user experience for all visitors — one Kristie and her team can be proud of.
