EUGENE, OR – July 18, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — IDX, Inc. and Broker Anthony Castro have joined forces to present Portland, Oregon home seekers with a unique and informative online real estate search page and website. Castro has adopted IDX Broker software and in the process upgraded the search capabilities of his online realty resource. As a member of both the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RLMS) and the Central Oregon MLS (COMLS) Castro has long had access to thousands of detailed property listings. Now, his clients and other Oregon buyers can experience the same heightened level of access reserved only for real estate agents and brokers.
Internet Data Exchanges (IDX) solutions, such as the one Castro now employs, give home seekers the ability to narrow the MLS listings to display the ideal propertys for them. Five unique search functions, including the powerful advanced tool, allow potential buyers to create search parameters by which to find their dream home by specifying the subdivision, scenery, flooring and schools they desire in a property. Another search option available within the IDX software is the Map Search page, which gives Castro’s clients the ability to search property listings using a dynamic map tool instead of traditional search forms. Home seekers can even use the drag and select tool within the IDX map search interface to go directly to a specific area of interest, where they are able to select a different price range or number of bedrooms, and the map will automatically show active listings in that area that meet the specific criteria the potential buyer is looking for.
An administrative login page gives Castro one convenient location where he can manage all of the behind-the-scenes aspects of his website. From this page, Castro can edit the CSS and global wrappers affiliated with his page, making a more recognizable brand that effectively reflects his company’s innovative nature across the online real estate market. Additionally, Castro can create custom RSS feed, dynamic title tags and XML codes in an effort to widely syndicate his listings and increase their online visibility. IDX Broker software has drastically simplified the tools Castro needs to manage his website, making The Broker Network a comprehensive real estate resource for both his agents and his clients.
