Tripling Down on Real Estate

Over the past three months we've enhanced our system for realtors and real estate agents. I am going to cover the top features we've added and outline the top features we're working on for the next release.

What we love about real estate is that even though it's been around forever the entire industry seems to be behind the times of what the home looker is looking for. Being software developers and having dedicated developers on our real estate initiatives we are sure to truly change the industry for the better.

Latest Version (2019-07)

Our latest version was a cleaning of our system of a lot of old code and building the foundation for the next generation in real estate websites. The top ten features we added are:

  • Property View – Map on Left, Map on Right, List (1-column) , List (2-columns) , List (3-columns) , List (4-columns), and of course the ability to have your own custom columns
  • Property Detail – Different views for residential, condominium, town houses, land, commericla, etc.
  • Enhanced Search – Set the display order, set properties as preferred, min/max on bathrooms, min/max on bedrooms, county, city, state, postal code, radius, number of results to display
  • MLS override – Every setting in the MLS can be overridden to fit your unique view
  • Customized agent lists and detail pages
  • Demographics – Schools and demographics based on the latest census data
  • Lead capture with lead follow-up
  • Everything is customizable. There is no setting that can't be quickly customized to fit your brand standards.
  • Ability for real estate offices to set the “brand standard” that all agents have to adhere to but still have complete control over their own independent website page.
  • From the time you have approval for the MLS IDX you will instantly have it. If you are starting out you can have your MLS IDX feed flowing in less than 3 days with your colors, branded logo, and more. This is whether you are a real estate office or an agent.

Available Service Flyers

Our philosophy has always been honesty (this is our rule #1) and transparency in our services. There's no reason to hide costs unless you have something to hide. We've found that those who hide fees charge more successful businesses more money because they can. We do not feel this is the way America was meant to be. We believe in offering a fair price to everyone for the work that is done.

We also believe that once you sign on with us, you trust us, and as our thank you to you, we "price lock" our services for the plan(s) you signed up for at that time. This means while you are on those services, the price will always be the same. As business owners, we appreciate this as it allows us to budget our business expenses better.
