Advantage GMAC Real Estate Broker Jeff Foster Implements a Custom IDX Solution to Simplify the Property Search Process

IDX Broker saves both Brokers and clients time searching for real estate online.

Eugene, OR, October 26, 2008 --( IDX, Inc. happily welcomes agents of Advantage GMAC Real Estate to the growing database of real estate professionals choosing to incorporate IDX Broker software into the MLS search function of their website. Led by Owner Jeff Foster, the Advantage GMAC team in Moses Lake, Wash. can now connect their clients to thousands of property listings from the Northwest MLS (NWMLS). The innovative Internet Data Exchange (IDX) technology is able to extract raw listing data from NWMLS and format it to be displayed as a seamlessly integrated part of the GMAC site.

Visitors to the Advantage GMAC site can use custom categories to search the properties on NWMLS and help narrow down their results. Foster has chosen to include categories such as neighborhood, pool, fireplaces, heating and cooling, roof, view, and waterfront. Clients searching the site can choose to save their search criteria and receive automatic email updates when properties matching their specifications become available on NWMLS.

Using IDX Broker, Foster is able to create custom XML codes for his listings in order to syndicate them to all the popular real estate search sites. This custom IDX solution gives Foster the control to edit the content that is displayed on his website as well as the look of his site by allowing him to edit his custom CSS and HTML wrappers via an administrative log-in page. Other advantages to this administrative area include a lead management section where Foster can assign new leads to individual agents as well as view detailed traffic reports with statistics on which pages of his site are being visited most frequently.
