Building and Testing the New

Home | Press | ABoR Blog | Building and Testing the New


The new was designed with you—the member—in mind. And our members played an invaluable role in building and testing the new In late August, we hosted five separate website testing focus groups featuring a variety of members, from REALTORS® to Affiliates. Each group took an in-depth look at the new site’s design and navigation, and the groups’ feedback allowed us to adjust the site as needed.

The site’s responsive design drew raving reviews from the groups, as they were able to have a seamless transition between phone/tablet and the site. The new homepage, with the most important information rotating at the top and seeing upcoming events/classes without scrolling, also received positive reviews. To improve the site, we adjusted the background and hyperlink colors—darkened the background for an easier look on the eyes, and changed hyperlink colors from yellow to orange. The result (plus some other fine tuning in the following months) was the site you see today.

Thank you to the members whom took time out of their busy schedules to provide us with feedback! To learn more about the new, check out the brand new ABoR Blog.
