About the project

A digital platform that allows customers to buy, build, rent and remodel houses.


About the customer

HappeHomes is a company that plans, builds, and remodels houses in central Iowa. Being a member of the Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines, they design
high-quality homes, at a fair price, with a customer-focused philosophy.


Working stages


To better showcase the houses, we’ve chosen a moderate color palette in the design. We’ve added filters to the house sorting section, removed red color from the branding, and updated the fonts.


The company was seeking a solution to pump up the traditional sales process with advanced technological features. HappeHomes wanted to redesign the website and customize the search features together with the home constructor, allowing the customer to design his future home.

The search for landing or homes was connected with the IDXbroker platform. The plugins for the platform didn’t fit for modern technologies, so the full customization was impossible.


The development was carried out according to the latest standards

  • Industry: Service Industry
  • Methodology: Scrum
  • Engagement model: Time and material
  • Team: Frontend developer 1, Backend developer 1, QA engineer 1, Designer 1, Project Manager 1
  • Technologies: PHP Symfony framework, ReactJS, PostgreSQL, Doker


With the new sections of rent and home builder app, the clients spend less time searching for the accommodation. Up-to-date design attracts new users, and better SEO optimization generates more leads.



To prepare the website for the updates, we created the IDX broker bundle module to connect the platform via API. Thus the database search became available.

With the help of PHP (Framework Symfony), we realized the business logic for adding the order and cost calculation of real estate for the customers. Using the React JS and Symfony, Appservice constructed Home Builder app, where the user can choose the neighborhood and floor plan preference. The admin section has a feedback form for the better lead generation.

The rent section is fully customized, applying React JS. Now the customer can see a house filtering the data by the price, date, and city. Thanks to server-side rendering, the website works a lot faster than a standard request-response model, allowing better SEO optimization.


All the information the customer requires is sent automatically via the contact form, including the cost calculation. In case the deal fails, the manager can specify the reason for that.
