With a formal education in Computer Science and many years of experience building websites and web applications for some of the areas largest companies and organizations, you can rest assured that you'll get a top notch professionally built product. Why pay an agency $5,000-$10,000 (or more) for a subpar product when you can eliminate the middle men and get a website/app developed by a real professional for a fraction of the cost?
Having worked with and for various agencies in the area, we are very familiar with how other web development companies operate and the quality of their output. When it comes to web development, many agencies either have developers with severely outdated skills (which means you're paying for a product which is outdated the second it's launched), or they don't even have real developers and just fill out a website template for you. If their developers don't have up to date skills, then you're left with a website or app that is breaking constantly and doesn't look good on all devices. If their developers aren't really developers, as soon as you want to change up how something looks or how something functions, you're out of luck.

Attention to detail is our top priority and we stay on top of the constantly changing industry standards so your website/application is beautiful, modern, and functional.

Also... we're not going to try and charge you more for any of it!
If you're looking for a truly professional and modern website or web application, try to avoid the hacks and old-school developers who permeate agencies. If you're shopping around for bids, ask if their developer(s) have a formal education. Ask to see some of their most recent work and see for yourself if it really looks good on all devices and functions properly. If you like what you see, make sure the developer(s) who made those websites/apps are still with the company. Ask if they'll be able to handle any changes to the design or functionality down the road. If the answers to any of these questions leave you feeling uneasy then give us a shout and see how we can help.
