When people take that big step and decide to look for a new home, they want to use an agency that they can trust and ideally one that knows the area they’re looking at. They also might be in two minds about the size of the company – would they be more comfortable with an international firm that have a number of offices around the city or a local specialist who might have a more personal approach and stronger familiarity with the area?
Having a Dot London domain name, rather than a ‘.com’ or ‘.co.uk’, can make a difference for agencies and developers as it gives customers the assurance that they are linked with the city. Even if it’s a project run by an international firm, such as a the Berkeley Group’s South Quay Plaza development in Canary Wharf, having a Dot London web address shows that the company has invested interest in the area and that they can be trusted.
Here are a few examples of some estate agents and property developers that are using their Dot London domain names to shout about where they do their business.
