Charis Developments

Charis Developments Ltd. was established in 1983 and is currently Collingwood’s premier private developer.

We were pleased when they approached us to work with them on re-developing and managing their website.

The Project

We were asked to re-design the Charis Developments website earlier this year and while we did not make big changes, we did integrate a properties page showcasing all their local development projects

  • Responsive website design
  • Custom CMS-focused development
  • Search engine optimization
  • Front-end development with HTML5
  • Fully Integrated Blog

Visit LIve site


The Collingwood downtown is small but features several beautifully restored heritage properties around which several developments by Charis have been built, each of which integrate nicely into the surrounding structures.

Responsive Design

Making the website completely responsive for any device allows visitors to the website to check out various properties and access each property on a Google Map if there are looking for them as well and allow visitors who are in town searching for properties potentially for lease and see what is available on their phones.

A very handy tool.

The Solution & Result

When Steve Assaff emailed me asking for my help with his website, the site itself was a little outdates in the way it was built so together, we took a couple of months to go through it and fix the coding before beginning to program it for Wordpress again. The result is a nice clean fast website with a better property gallery integrated. It is also fully responsive. I'm pleased with it.

Client Review

We had a very great time working with Steve, and he made it very easy to envision the end product every step of the way. After the initial consultation with Steve, we realized that we needed to make some big changes to our website, and the end result was very exciting for us. We live in a world where our website is not only being visited by a variety of different devices and screen sizes, but the same customers are returning to our site at different times using these different devices. Our website is now mobile friendly and having a responsive web design means we can offer the best user experience possible. Thanks Steve!
