Eugene, Oregon -- (SBWire) -- 11/25/2008 -- Today IDX, Inc. announces the addition of John Jackson with RE/MAX Suburban in Kirkwood, Mo. to the expanding database of real estate professionals choosing to customize the search function of their website using innovative Internet Data Exchange (IDX) technology. IDX Broker extracts the raw listings data from properties on Mid America Regional Info Systems MLS (MARIS) and formats it to appear as a seamlessly integrated and easily searchable part of Jackson’s website. This custom IDX solution provides endless search options to clients, making it easier for them to search based on what is important to them and narrow down their results to find their ideal property.

In addition to benefitting the clients, IDX Broker offers a wealth of helpful tools so that Jackson can manage his business more efficiently. Clients can opt to save their search criteria and receive automatic email updates when properties matching their specifications become available on MARIS, and Jackson has access to all of the information. An administrative log-in allows him to see how many visitors he has had to his site and provides detailed traffic reports as to which pages are being viewed most frequently.

This custom IDX solution provides Jackson with multiple outlets to increase his listings overall visibility and exposure on the internet. With IDX Broker, Jackson can create custom XML codes to syndicate his listings to popular real estate search websites such as Google Base, Trulia, Zillow, Gumiyo, Homescape, and RSS Feed. Jackson can also create dynamic title tags unique to each of his listings, which increase the likelihood of his properties being picked up by a major search engine and distributed across the internet.
