Analytics have shown that more and more users are visiting sites using their mobile devices. In fact, mobile usage has actually surpassed desktop usage, meaning it’s now absolutely essential that mobile design take priority.

Mobile-first design is the process of designing a site first for the mobile screen, then scaling up to tablets, desktops and beyond. An initial design optimized for smartphone viewers is the most effective way to reach potential clients no matter their location or device.  Organic Return achieved a significant milestone with the ASSIR website due to the amount of custom development and integration required to power the visual display.

“Not only did we produce a beautifully designed website; we managed to integrate a number of data-heavy components and provide a seamless user experience.” said George Kelly, CEO and Founder of Organic Return.

Instead of simply delivering static images to the client, Organic Return created fully interactive prototypes which scale across devices to create the perfect user experience. By working directly with Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty staff and leadership, the OR design team was able to develop a unified visual system and hierarchy.

Numerous backend integrations were required to ensure seamless functionality. Organic Return designed a custom database structure to pull content directly from Sotheby’s International Realty’s back office systems as well as the local MLS. Significant custom development was required to produce tools that could be used to manage Luxury Vacation Rentals and include video, maps, and recently viewed properties, resulting in an engaging user experience.

This attention to client experience resulted in another rich digital experience for the high-end luxury real estate brokerage, as underlined by the recent Best Mobile Design ranking.

Having received three accolades in three years for real estate website design and development, Organic Return has made a mark as one of the most highly awarded agencies in the real estate category. If you would like to learn more, please visit to learn more.
