Searches are initiated by entering a destination in the the "Where?" field and selecting on of the drop down results. The program will automatically search for properties in the selected area and return a list of property results.
Each of the property results will link directly to a Brochure page which contains pictures and a full description of that property, in the case of Gold Standard clients or summary information and contact details for those that have chosen a more limited service.
In addition to these, there are various pages that are accessed by links on both the header and the footer of the pages and also by adverts on the right hand side of most pages. Most of these pages are secondary to the functionality of the site but provide useful or legal information.
