IDX for WIX real estate sites

IDX for WIX – Daniel Scarfone Miami Florida Realtor

We were happy to get a call from Daniel Scarfone a few weeks ago. He is an agent with Douglas Elliman real estate in Miami Florida. When Daniel asked “Do you do IDX for WIX websites?”, our response was a resounding YES! Daniel had his WIX site built already so we just hopped in there and setup IDX to his WIX site.

The Joy of SSL

When you think of real estate, you don’t often think about the importance of security, but for your real estate website, having a SSL certificate can be important.  This is what gives you that little green padlock in the corner of your browser and makes all of your webpages use HTTPS instead of HTTP.
