CCPA For The U.S. Real Estate Industry: An Introduction

In 2018, California has passed the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Upgrade: Showcase IDX Moves Into New Offices

This week, we moved into a bigger and better office space that’s only a 5-minute drive away from the previous space in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward. While we loved our old space, it was getting a bit tight in there with some changes at the companies we shared the space with and our growth.

5 Essential Strategies For Your Real Estate IDX Website

The ability to stand out in an increasingly competitive market is a challenge. What can you do to  compete online? Our new content series will be focusing on the unique value that a real estate website gives you and how to get the most out of it. Just having a website isn’t going to get you too far. It’s like having a car but not putting gas in it. If you don’t invest even a little bit of time and money, you’ll probably not get the most of it. It’s very easy to mis-spend, and just because you spend a lot of money on a fancy website, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are guaranteed success.

Showcase IDX Is Now An Official Zapier Integration Partner

New Widgets: Search Button & Results Count

We’re happy to announce a couple of new widgets that you can use on your websites to extend the integration with Showcase IDX onto any page. We’re looking forward to seeing how creatively our customers will use these on their websites. Each of these new widgets can be created in the Agent Admin: Admin>Select a website>Settings>Shortcodes. A Showcase IDX WordPress plugin update to Version 3.0.41 is required in order for these new widgets to work.

Recently, we’ve been busy expanding our engineering team and we’re very happy to announce Scott Davis as Showcase IDX’s newest in-house software engineer. He is our first Showcase IDX team member that is not located in Atlanta full time. Scott calls 200 acres of farmland in Maryland home.

Prior to Showcase IDX Scott has worked with a wide range of companies and organizations, from Tourbuzz (A management platform for real estate photographers) to NASA. Yes, that NASA. He didn’t fly any of the the shuttles, but he did work on Hubble Space Telescope. Scott has over 16 years of software development under his belt, specializing in highly-scalable software architecture and team leadership.

In his free time, he enjoys wood and metal working, robotics, studying algorithms, and working with Elixir. We are really happy with the development team we’re building and excited that Scott is on board!

Welcome Josh Sandlin To The Showcase IDX Team

We’re excited to introduce the newest member of our team, Josh Sandlin. Josh will be joining our development team as a backend engineer. He will be working on the technology behind the scenes that makes Showcase IDX tick and working to ensure that the technology scales smoothly as we continue our growth.

Josh has a strong technical background, including stints at both startup and enterprise companies. Notably, he spent some formative years at Adult Swim which is a division of Turner/Time Warner. At Turner, Josh contributed to an impressive array projects from front-end, back-end, to DevOps assignments.

In Josh’s spare time, he enjoys playing with the cats at Java Cats Cafe and is on a quest to catch all of the Pokemon in Atlanta‘s Piedmont Park. We can’t be more excited to have Josh on this ride with us!
