Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/09/2009 -- IDX, Inc. is excited to announce its newest addition Steve Dutoit with Keller Williams Realty- Lakewood, to the constantly growing amount of realtors choosing to upgrade the search functions of their websites with a custom IDX solution. The innovative Internet Data Exchange (IDX) technology takes raw data from the Mid Florida Regional MLS (MFRMLS) and formats to be displayed as a seamlessly integrated portion of Dutoit’s website; therefore his clients are viewing the most current and up-to-date listings on the web. Through this integration, clients can browse thousands of property listings and photo galleries, all without ever having to leave Detoit’s site.

Offering five unique search functionalities, basic, advanced, address, map and listing ID, the customizable IDX software gives Dutoit’s clients the ability to create truly personalized property searches. One of the most resourceful of the search options is the map search. Powered by Google Maps, the map search allows clients to pinpoint their specified location on an interactive satellite, terrain or road map. Once they have mapped their chosen location, they can judge their relativity to nearby main roads, landmarks, neighborhoods, school districts, convenience location and other cities, to assess whether they could picture themselves in this setting or not. Clients can then save their specified search preferences and opt to receive automatic email alerts when a property matching their detailed search criteria becomes available on the MFRMLS.

Not only does the custom IDX Broker software benefit Dutoit’s clients in Sarasota, Florida, but him as well. This innovative IDX solution gives Dutoit an abundant amount of resources to help give his website an advantage over his competition. He has the ability to edit his custom CSS and global wrappers, allowing him to personalize the look of his website, as well as create a unique branding throughout each page. He has the capabilities to develop XML codes and dynamic title tags for each of his listings, increasing their visibility and their chances of being syndicated with major search engines. And Dutoit also has access to traffic reports, detailing which pages on his site are being viewed most frequently. All of these original functionalities provided by IDX, Inc. aide him in better managing his business, as well as giving him the resources to create a truly personalized property search experience for his clients.
