Kettler Kicks Off 2008 With New Web Site

FALLS CHURCH, VA – Kettler, one of the nation's top real estate development and management companies, today is displaying information and imagery about its apartments, condominiums, planned communities, and commercial and retail spaces with new fervor thanks to Falls Church-based web consulting company Viget Labs.

Kettler, which is headquartered in Tysons Corner, has been working with Viget since August to develop a site that will support its diverse audiences and provide a more interactive, guided experience for all users from renters and first-time home buyers to retirees and investors.

"We're so pleased to have a new site that showcases all of our areas of business and a layout that allows our audiences to have quick, easy access to all of the content," said Laurel Howell, Kettler's Internet Marketing Manager who managed the production for Kettler, including populating the site with all content and images. "The CMS is easy-to-use and allows us to successfully maintain the content on our site so that it is current and relevant."

Viget Web Developer Megan Mink built the site in Expression Engine, a content management system that allows Kettler the ability to add additional properties, galleries, and news items with ease. The design, created by Creative Director Peyton Crump, combines a cool, contemporary color palette that complements Kettler's print marketing materials while offering users full, vibrant gallery views and virtual tours of properties. With help from Flash Designer Erik Olson and Project Managers Kara Davis and Stephanie Hay, the Kettler site became a reality.

"Kettler is a leader in the real estate community," said Brian Williams, CEO of Viget Labs. "We're proud to be able to bring that vision to its presence online."
