Strategy & SolutionTo build an appealing real estate enterprise-class website, the client teamed up with Flexsin's web developers. These developers at Flexsin had years of experience in building lead-gen websites and online brand presence for real estate businesses.

- Connecting the front-end with a leading database server for improving data management
