>>site has a nice clean look and is easy to navigate
Thanks! :-)

>>would have liked to see some interior shots of the house of the week
The broker went against that idea.

>>I would like to have some general idea of what area the house is in.
Again, the broker was reluctant to give any data out as far as street
addresses. What we did agree on, is a map location. Which will be
hyper-linked to YahooMaps! The broker would rather have the individual call
in to show the house, and possible others. Increases the chances of selling
'a' home to the buyer.

>>I presume the detail page will have a photo and designed to be printed
Correct, this is how it would look, minus the header, footer and entire left
menu: http://valvanorealty.com/listings/20020429b.htm

>>I would prefer seeing the address and location of the company in that
space.
I agree with that. I am in the process of creating a jpg with location and
contact numbers which I will put along side the company logo.

>>If the sale is pending you should have a graphic or text
I plan on having an automated script rotating a 'listing of the week' on a
weekly basis. As soon as I get word from the broker about a house being sold
or under contract, the site will be updated.

some thoughts:
  a.. site has a nice clean look and is easy to navigate
  b.. the building photos need some work...perhaps some lightening and
sharpening to look as good as the site. would have liked to see some
interior shots of the house of the week and personally if I was a client I
would like to have some general idea of what area the house is in.
  c.. would prefer a hot spot or link under the image saying "Details of
this house" or something other than click here. I presume the detail page
will have a photo and designed to be printed
  d.. I liked the text with the contact information but I think the images
in the top right might be misunderstood. I would prefer seeing the address
and location of the company in that space.  It was just by chance that I
clicked on the logo and found the location address.
  e.. Not quite sure why the school links rated such nice graphics when the
link made more sense in the side navigation bar
  f.. It would really annoy me if I wanted to buy a featured home or
business and then later found out the site just hadn't been updated.  If the
sale is pending you should have a graphic or text for that but nothing on
the site should be out of date.
I know I've gotten a bit picky but I actually really liked the site.  I've
been reading a book about web sites and trying to be more aware of the
details.
