We created Den to help house hunters in the NW find houses right from their phone.


If you've ever looked at buying a house in Oregon or southern Washington, undoubtedly you experienced an out of date, clunky website to search available listings. We recently started to think about moving to another part of Portland and started looking for houses online. The experience left a lot to be desired so we decided to fix the problem. We challenged ourselves to design and build Den in a ridiculously short timeframe. This project was a fantastic opportunity for us to explore React Native. It's extremely fast and easy to build native apps with React.

Product Highlights

Simplified Search

We created a simplified search by only presenting the most important information when browsing for houses. The current website experience lists complicated and complex terminology that isn't pertinent to non-realitors.

Playful Branding

Searching for a new home is stressful. With Den, we wanted a friendly and inviting brand to differentiate ourselves from other home finding experiences. Our happy-go-lucky fox is with you on every step of your search — just don't search for a zip code he doesn't know, it makes him sad!

It's All In The Details

Each search listing has an enormous amount of data with it. Everything from square footage to school districts to multiple photos of the property are available. We took care to design the information hierarchy in a meaningful way that was easy to scan at a glance.
