The Door product is a consumer facing web application and therefore needed a strong aesthetic to back the brand they are building. Our design team worked quickly and in short segments with tight client reviews to ensure everything we built aligned with their brand requirements while offering the user a familiar home search experience.
Door is integrated with the NTREIS MLS. Existing solutions didn't give us the control over the data in a way that we could offer a super fast search to the frontend UI and also allow the Door team to run reports and gather analytics from the MLS data. The data feed from RETS is imported into a Postgres database with geospatial factors enabled and served through AWS RDS to allow for horizontal scalability of read requests.
“With Door we orchestrated an entire high fault-tolerant architecture to be able to serve millions of users. By using database backups and replication all the data remains secure and consistent. The autoscaling systems we used ensure that the site will always stay up and running regardless of how much traffic is present. ”
Door had an exciting launch backed by a strong public relations campaign. Their user growth has been exponential and they have generated revenue beyond investor's expectations in their first 12 months of operations. We are excited to be Door's development partner and help them become the leading real estate brokerage firm in Texas.
