Over 100-year-old American heartland homes uses IDX to provide online real estate search options


EUGENE, OR – May 25, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — Kirsten Crawford of Crawford Realty, LLC has partnered with IDX, Inc. to update her real estate website with the highly customizable IDX Broker software. Now, residents of Dixon, Illinois can find their perfect property through the union of Crawford’s website and the Sauk Valley MLS (SVMLS), which displays every listing in the area conveniently on Crawford’s page. IDX Broker software is changing the way Crawford runs her business by giving her more options for managing her real estate listings.

Home seekers looking for the perfect fixer-upper or vintage home can now search those specific listings on Crawford’s website. IDX Broker software allows potential buyers to create and save their own unique search options with such specifications as road frontage options, interior and exterior amenities, lot description and age of a home. Because thousands of properties are displayed with SVMLS listings, potential buyers have more options than ever before when searching for a home. Other helpful features include the ability to schedule showings, contact listing agents and sellers, print fliers and calculate likely monthly mortgage payments, all from Crawford’s website.

An administrative login page gives Crawford access to her clients’ information, saved searches and new leads. It is here that she can use modern day technology to monitor the properties built hundreds of years ago. The app for iPhones, and the upcoming iPad, help Crawford to keep track of her business wherever she is. IDX Broker software has made managing her real estate business easier than ever before.
