Custom IDX Tools Help Real Estate Agent David Amelung Provide a Custom Search Experience for his Clients

A custom IDX solution is the key to speeding up the real estate search for both agents and clients.


Eugene, Oregon -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2008 -- IDX, Inc. is excited to announce the inclusion of David Amelung with Realty World Marketplace in the expanding database of real estate agents and brokers adding custom IDX software to enhance their websites. Those searching for homes in the Asheville, N.C. area can now use Amelung’s site to simply and quickly search the Western North Carolina MLS (WNCMLS). Internet Data Exchange (IDX) technology makes it possible for Amelung to display the WNCMLS data as a seamlessly integrated part of his website.

By extracting data from WNCMLS, IDX Broker is able to format the listings according to Amelung’s specifications. Using global, page, and category wrappers along with custom edited CSS, this IDX solution gives the website a cohesive and unique appearance. Clients can search for their ideal property using categories such as schools, interior features, floor, driveway, cooling and heating, basement, porch, and roof.

Through an administrative log-in, Amelung has access to all lead contact information and can view saved search criteria. He also can view statistical updates from WNCMLS as to the number of properties added or removed and price increases or decreases. IDX Broker helps increase the exposure of his listings by allowing Amelung to create dynamic title tags for his details pages, which increase their chances of being picked up by a major search engine and distributed across the internet.

About David Amelung
I have been fortunate enough to experience the Blue Ridge Mountain area since I was 5 years old. My grandparents had a farmhouse not too far from Asheville, where my family spent all our summer vacations. After being given an opportunity to change course in life, and make Asheville our permanent home, my wife and I couldn’t be happier. I have spent most of my life in the rigorous grind of the commercial construction industry; I grew up on and around construction sites. I have an intimate knowledge of our area and terrain, from Highlands all the way over to Blowing Rock.
