AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum Story
Mark Hatfield in Fort Myers Florida approached us about building him a custom site for IslandBuoy.com. Mark works at Loffreno Real Estate and specializes in Fort Myers Beach real estate and condos.
Real Estate Social Media Expert
What Mark wanted was an AgentPress and IDX Broker real estate website that would be optimized for social media sharing. We got Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus and YouTube accounts setup for IslandBuoy.com. Then we went in and put in some great sharing buttons on each post.
In order to get more contacts and lead generation from IslandBuoy’s visitors, we also added some great sharing buttons on his sidebars. Real estate and social media are both areas that Mark is very good at, so this played to his strengths.
We also added a Twitter feed and a Facebook feed to his sidebar.
Real Estate YouTube Videos
With all of the excitement and goings-on on Fort Myers Beach, Mark felt strongly about the need to have a YouTube video showcasing great places to visit, places to eat, and even condos and other listings in the area. We created a custom PHP script that runs in the background so that Mark can easily change the current video by just changing the title of one of his posts. It gives him a safe, easy way to administrate the videos he shares on his AgentPress and IDX Broker website.
AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum Experts
Using AgentPress from Genesis gave us a great foundation to build a custom design from. We put in custom header images that randomly change on the top. This gives visitors a fresh look as they move around the site. Since we love working with AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum, we were able to bring the best of both worlds together. We have some great AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum property detail pages with custom CSS coding.
As part of the AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum integration, we built custom search tools. As you can see, visitors can use the quick search tools, or pull down one of the IDX Broker searches from the top navigation menu.
AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum Communities
We also built in IDX Broker Platinum custom searches that match up to the different communities that are serviced by IslandBuoy.com on the landing pages. These AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum community search pages are linked to the images on the home page so that visitors can easily click on the areas they want.
Another fun thing we did to harness the synergy of AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum was to use widgets. On the sidebar, we put an extensive list of areas and more communities in the Fort Myers Beach Florida area. We made a custom search with IDX Broker Platinum for each of these links to showcase these communities.
IDX Broker Platinum Mobile Search
We also love using AgentPress and IDX Broker Platinum to bring the powerful mobile search capability to IslandBuoy.com visitors. When any of Mark’s clients or website visitors use their iPad, iPad mini, iPhone or Android to search for condos or estates in Fort Myers Beach, they will have a great HTML5 mobile experience.
With the new IDX Broker Platinum mobile search, clients can save searches, call Mark, or just search every property on the Fort Myers Beach MLS right from the comfort of their mobile device. IDX Broker has some great lead generation tools to allow all of the signups and other activity to be viewed by Mark.
