In 1995, I bought a basic HTML book and taught myself how to build websites. It’s over 21 years later and I still love what I do.
OnlineStir has been around since 2014, but my first web design business was founded in 2001. Back then, WordPress didn’t exist so I built my own content management system called Promoteware and used it to build websites for a lot of real estate agents, churches, online and offline stores, and many other large and small clients.
In 2005, I founded an online lead generation company called QuoteCatcher. You can read all about it in my book, The Web Startup Roadmap: Navigate Your Way to a Successful Online Business. In 2008, I sold it for a 7-figure price tag to a company near Silicon Valley in California. Although, after the government and my ex-wife took their shares, there wasn’t nearly 7 figures left. C’est la vie.
After I sold QuoteCatcher, I took a few years off to explore other things, like scuba diving and real estate investment. I successfully flipped a house back in 2011 and then bought a house for myself and renovated it before I moved in.
Now, I’m back doing what I do best: web design. And thanks to WordPress, it’s even more fun than it used to be. Building things is my passion so I work with a couple of graphic designers who make things look pretty and I turn their designs into websites.
While building websites for real estate agents is our primary focus, we’ve also built ecommerce websites, websites for consultants, coaches and others, as well as provided content writing and logo creation services. The only things we don’t do are custom software development, App development, marketing or SEO.
If you’re still using your boilerplate profile page provided by your real estate brokerage, or you’re unhappy with your current website, we have several affordable packages to choose from, and can have a beautiful new website launched for you in as little as two weeks. We can also manage your website and keep it maintained.
I sincerely hope you’ll give us a chance to build you a beautiful new website. Give me a call or contact me today to get started with your free review.
