REDFIN UNIFIED SEARCH

UX / product design, December 2014

Description

I led feature development of what came to be known as "Unified Search" at Redfin.

Places, neighborhoods, schools and agent names were made searchable through a single user interface, talking to a single high-scalability index. The user interface in particular made these types of searches more discoverable in the form of an autocomplete that's blazing fast.

Over time, new types have been added to support autocompletion of saved and recent searches, as well as over 60 million property addresses. 

Typing into the main search box on Redfin.com will present relevant search phrases in real time
Since the video quality is crappy :)
What it looked like when I started :) Note that "San Francisco" is near the bottom of the list when searching from a desktop in San Francisco, CA.
