Eugene, OR -- (SBWire) -- 02/13/2009 -- The IDX team is eager to welcome its newest addition, Judy Smith with RE/MAX Professionals, to the constantly growing amount of real estate companies, agents and brokers deciding to enhance and improve the search function of their websites with a custom IDX solution. With the integration of Internet Data Exchange (IDX) technology, potential home buyers can now search numerous property listings, provided by the Omaha MLS (OMLS), all without ever being redirected from Smith’s site. IDX Broker software takes raw listing data from the OMLS, and formats it onto her website, so when clients are browsing through different properties, the data is presented to them in a seamlessly integrated manner. This way, consumers are getting the most up-to-date and current listings in the online real estate market.

Custom IDX software provides five different search functions for Smith’s site, basic, advanced, map, address and listing ID. One of the most unique and resourceful functions is the advanced search. Here, clients can narrow their searches to every last detail, targeting preferences such as: floors, exterior, style, driveway, roof type, heating/cooling, pool, region and views, in efforts to pinpoint their truly ideal property. Clients can then save their search criteria and receive automatic email updates the moment a property matching their specifications becomes available on the Omaha MLS (OMLS).

When clients opt to save their search criteria, Smith will have access to their information through and administrative login page. She will then be able to keep tabs on each of her clients and know exactly what they are looking for, helping her to find their ideal property in a quick and easy fashion. Through this login page, Smith also has access to numerous resources that will help her to better manage her real estate website, such as: traffic reports detailing which listings on her site are being viewed most frequently, the ability to edit her CSS and global wrappers, giving her the power to have complete control over the look of her website, as well as the option to create XML codes and dynamic title tags for each listing , in efforts to increase the visibility of her listings and their chances of being picked up by popular real estate websites.
