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. Share this:LinkedInTwitterFacebookPinterestRedditEmail
Real Estate IDX Search 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.

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! Share this:LinkedInTwitterFacebookPinterestRedditEmail
JoshSandlin-1
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! Share this:LinkedInTwitterFacebookPinterestRedditEmail

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Showcase IDX was created to help individual agents and teams level the playing field. Stop Competing and Start Winning.

Showcase IDX Support Team Rocks

Showcase IDX has a streamlined interface and easy to navigate features that don't clutter our website or lock us into particular themes. But where they really shine is in their customer service.

Best IDX Solution out there

No solution even compares with what Showcase IDX offer. There is no way I would steer clients towards any other solution.

Showcase IDX all day everyday!

by far the best IDX solution out there. Forward thinking, always improving, with a clear focus on the interface - one of the major areas other providers fail. It feels like everyone else is still playing catch-up all these years later.

Best IDX plugin by far!

Showcase IDX is now the only IDX I recommend to my clients. Visually, it is stunning and so much better than the other IDX’s. To top it off, customer service is top notch

Best WordPress IDX, period.

Simple to use (i.e. low bounce rates and high user engagement), great mapping with polygon search, fantastic mobile responsive functionality, ‘login with facebook’, ultra-fast, and they are always adding or updating functionalities.

An IDX Feed That's Above The Rest!

Showcase IDX is a better solution in regards to search rankings. I love the hot sheets and the simplicity to create "hot sheets" for different areas.

I switched from IDX Broker

I get more voluntary sign ups than I did with old provider. I think that speaks for itself.

The Best All-Around IDX For Realtors Wanting Results

We were previously using another IDX for our client sites. As a digital agency focused on measurable results, we were frustrated with the limitations we had. We started researching alternatives and thank god we found Showcase IDX.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Since switching to Showcase, registrations and customer interaction have increased tremendously. Showcase is so much cleaner than just using our own MLS systems...easy to use even for a beginner starting their own website.

What I have been looking for all along.

I have used both Diverse Solutions and IhomeFinder. Neither delivered what I wanted. Since switching to Showcase, my bounce rate is down 20%, time spent on my site has doubled, and most importantly I am getting 4x more registrations on my site.

Converts website leads at a high level

Showcase IDX is leading the way in the world of WordPress IDX solutions. Clients love utilizing the Showcase IDX product with original features not found in any other product.

Showcase IDX brings the leads!

I am very happy to say Showcase IDX delivers the leads! I am often told by prospects and clients that our website is their favorite in town. A large amount of business is generated through our website presence.

Would You Bet Your Business On A IDX Solution?

We effectively compete every day with Zillow, Trulia and Redfin. Showcase Idx is critical to our success...Our site stats are over 12K unique users per week. That is up significantly from a year ago when we were on Wolfnet Idx.

Your retention rate will be much higher

No subdomains or Iframes is probably my favorite feature, but at the end of the day it's about Results. I think the biggest thing is how "sticky" their site becomes. With Showcase IDX, the retention rate is much higher.

Get the website you deserve

Websites powered by Showcase IDX get results. Have a website that your clients will actually use and will grow your real estate brand.
