Eugene, OR, August 10, 2008 --( IDX, Inc. is pleased to announce that Lance Swanson from the John L. Scott Portland Metro Office, located in Gresham, Ore. has become the most recent real estate agent to add customized IDX software to his website to simplify the home search for his clients. IDX Broker helps Swanson provide his clients with integrated search and results pages after filtering through thousands of listings from the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS).

With the addition of IDX Broker, clients of Swanson can now select to enter criteria into a basic search, advanced search, map search, address search, or listing search depending on which search they feel is easier to operate. All of the search categories are now completely customizable and geared toward helping the client narrow down the options to have a better chance of locating their ideal home. Search options on Swanson’s site include nearby schools, view description, lots size, neighborhood, home style, kitchens features, style of dining room, construction of basement, type of exterior and interior material, and fireplace description among others.
