Michael Dillard with John R. Wood Realtors- The Dillard Team has chosen IDX, Inc. to help enhance and simplify the search section of his real estate website, by incorporating a custom IDX solution. This new IDX Broker addition will not only create a nearly effortless online real estate search experience for home seekers, but the process will also be much more user-friendly and organized. This innovative Internet Data Exchange (IDX) software has the technology to extract raw listing data details from the Sunshine MLS (SSMLS), and formats the information to be displayed as a seamlessly integrated and easily searchable part of Dillard's site, providing clients with the most up-to-date property information in the Bonita Springs, Florida real estate market.

Potential home buyers are granted access to five comprehensive search functionalities when browsing Dillard's website, including a basic search, an advanced search, a map search, powered by Google Maps, an address search, and a listing ID search. The most detailed of the search categories, the advanced search option, enables home seekers to search everything from the number of rooms, to the exterior, to the outside scenery, to the neighborhood, aiding to narrow their search results, in efforts to find a home that fits their every want, need and desire. Clients may then save their search preferences, and receive automatic email alerts the moment a property matching their specifications becomes available on the SSMLS.

Access to an administrative login dashboard gives Dillard the means to create a truly personalized and custom online real estate website. Through this individual section, he can edit the look, layout, design and search options available, developing its own sense of personalization and unique branding throughout each page of his site. He has the ability to create dynamic title tags and custom XML codes, which will increase his listings visibility, as well as their chances of syndication to popular real estate search engines. He is also able to view traffic reports, detailing which pages and listings on his site are being viewed most frequently. Each of these resources help Dillard to create a more efficiently managed online business, and in turn, generate more profit.
