Eugene, OR (PressExposure) August 21, 2008 -- IDX, Inc. announces the addition of the Island Realty group of Surf City, N.J. to the growing list of real estate companies using customized IDX Broker software on their website to make the online property search simpler for their clients. Lead by Broker Lisa Henson, clients of Island are able to search thousands of up-to-date listings from the Jersey Shore MLS (OCBR) and results are displayed in an easy to comprehend, homogenous, and integrated format.
Customization options are accessible through an administrative log-in page and allow Henson to design her personalized CSS as well as place global, page, and category wrappers around the data on her site to create a seamlessly integrated search experience for her clients. Another feature that helps Henson create a personalized experience for her clients is through the use of a lead management tool in which clients enter their search criteria and their contact information and receive email updates as listings matching their specifications become available on the MLS.
IDX Broker has five basic search options, basic, advanced, map, address, and listing, which scan the entire MLS for results, but also offers individual brokers or offices the opportunity to showcase their own listings in a featured listings section. These listings can be displayed anywhere on the site but are usually featured either on the homepage or search page to attract potential clients and catch their attention before seeing other MLS listings. With the help of these customized IDX search tools, Henson now has more time to spend with her clients rather than worrying about up keep Island's site.
