David Halterman Increases Efficiency During the Online Real Estate Search by Integrating Custom IDX Broker

A custom IDX solution saves both real estate professionals and their clients time by providing easy-to-use property search function tools.


Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2009 -- With the help of IDX Broker software, real estate professional David Halterman of RE/MAX of Cherry Creek, Inc. has integrated a custom IDX solution into his website, in efforts to create a quick and easy way for his clients to search for real estate online. Through Halterman’s membership with the Metrolist- Denver MLS (MTOMLS), clients can now search thousands of different property listings, provided by the MTOMLS and its relationship with custom IDX software, and all without ever leaving his site. IDX Broker software extracts raw listing data from the MTOMLS, and formats it, so when potential home buyers are searching for properties online, it is presented to them as a seamless integration, making properties extremely easy to search and locate.

With the addition of custom IDX software, Halterman’s clients have access to an abundant amount of resources to help them find their ideal property. The IDX solution provides potential home buyers with five different search options, basic, advanced, map, address and listing ID, each offering unique features to help narrow down their search results. One of the most detailed features is the map search. The map search function, powered by Google Maps, allows the consumer to pinpoint their exact desired location on an interaction terrain, satellite, or street view map. From that point, the client can search nearby school districts, major roads, neighborhoods, landmarks and convenience facilities to judge their relativity to the property they are considering.

Via an administrative login page, Halterman has access to numerous resources to help him better manage his business. Halterman has access to detailed traffic reports and lead management tools, which let him know which pages on his website are being viewed most frequently. He has the capabilities to create custom CSS and global wrappers, which will help him to develop a unique branding throughout his entire website. And Halterman also has the ability to generate custom XML codes, which make it possible for him to syndicate his listings with well known real estate websites, therefore increasing the visibility of his listings.
