EUGENE, OR – May 18, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — Coldwell Banker Select Professionals’ Steve Bickford has teamed up with IDX, Inc. to employ a new and unique online home search experience for his buyers. The personalized IDX (Internet Data Exchange) technology that is now integrated on Bickford’s website now partners with the Central Penn Multi-List (CPMLS) to deliver the multitude of diverse listings to the fingertips of home seekers in the Central Pennsylvania area who are searching for their property online. Finding the perfect home in the Harrisburg area is now easier than ever, thanks to the search tools on Bickford’s professional website. IDX Broker software has eliminated the hassle and stress real estate websites used to cause potential home buyers by making the process simple for both real estate professionals and buyers.

Five customizable search tools allow home seekers to create a custom search for their dream property. One of the search options is the Advanced tool, giving Bickford’s clients the ability to look for homes with certain specifications, such as property type, square footage and community options. These search parameters can be saved and used to match buyers with properties as they enter the market. Through an automatic email update system, CPMLS listings will be sent to notify the home seekers when a property is lowered in price or added to the CMPLS database. This seamless IDX solution of incorporating raw listing data with buyers’ property requirements makes the online home search more precise than ever.

IDX Broker provides an administrative login page where Bickford can see which properties are viewed most frequently, control the design of his website and edit custom CSS and global wrappers to develop his own unique professional branding. Now, he can spend less time searching through thousands of CPMLS listings and more time pursuing new leads. These tools help Bickford to create an organized, custom and profitable online real estate website that is user-friendly for both himself and his clients.
