ButterHomes is dead. Long Live ButterHomes!

The new theme is an obvious update to my website. The complete overhaul on the backend is not quite as obvious, but a much larger task!

Gone is the web presence that has served us so well for the last couple of years. Gone is the familiar header - a picture of a beautiful home set against the rising moon. We had received a lot of positive feedback about our website, and part of me was sad to see it go. But my sadness was tempered by my excitement about our new website..

Our new website is all-encompassing - home page, static pages, blog, and all other links are all housed under one "roof". The new look is cleaner, and allows easier access to all the key content. Keeping it all running on the same platform will make future upgrades and modifications a snap. The new header is a photograph that I took personally - part of my Moving Stills series; I think I'll actually change it regularly using various photos from the series.

Please feel free to have a look around, and take the new site for a test drive. (my home page can still be reached at www.butterhomes.com). I'd love to hear your feedback.

ps - I know there are a couple of broken links - buyers guide, sellers guide.. I should have them up in the next couple of days. (Update 7/30 - looks like just about everything is working nicely. I'll continue to improve it, but it should be functional now.)

Your embracing change Realtor,

Chris Butterworth
