I highly recommend working with RealGeeks. The team makes it easy to get the site set up. The site templates can be color customized for your brand. With a few graphics it looks like a much more expensive custom site and if you ever have a support question chances are you literally get an response in seconds via eMail or phone call. RealGeeks are real people who know your name and your site. Best advertising ROI I have ever had!

I started about two years ago with RealGeeks and still cannot say enough good about the product. In only about 6-8 months I was ranking organically along with other sites that have been at it for years. With a little bit of direction from Jeff and Co and some work writing about the areas, the site will start showing up in search engines about as quick as anything else I know of. Support and getting your questions answered quickly are what you can expect. Other RealGeeks site owners are also willing to help and share their ideas. You can pretty much make the site anything you want it to be. Changes and adding pages are easy and can be picked up by non-tech people in hours, not days. For those who are more technical, there is a lot of flexibility is you want to insert your own custom HTML. The platform lends itself to agents of all technical (or non-technical) levels.
Page loads have always been fast and I receive at least several comments per month from our leads noting that "your site is one of the best on the net."
The contact manager is great when fully implemented. Template emails can be added to cover the regular types of followups we all need to do and can be updated on the fly. These are HUGE time savers especially if you are trying to manager 500+ leads yourself. Using the scheduling component means you will never miss a followup. Better followup means more closings.
Once you get your site rolling, your challenge will be how to handle the leads. I ended up adding several agents to my site to cover what I could not. A growing site brings some new welcomed challenges :)
There has been several upgrades that have come out of our RealGeek discussions that have been rolled out without being "nickle and dimed" to death. In fact, there has never been a charge other than the monthly after the setup. I know there are others out there that charge a lot more and don't deliver half of what I have received.
If I had to say what was the most important factor in choosing RealGeeks, it was the fair cost and the fact that Jeff is a real estate broker an uses this platform in his own business. A rare combination that simply works :)
I am always happy to answer questions anyone has. Full disclosure - I am an end user and don't receive a dime for this. I'm just a very happy customer....

What I like about Real Geeks IDX Real Estate Search & Listing Web Sites, and their LeadClient CRM back-end system is simple; Cost, Support, & Honesty!
Here is what you get;
Honesty: They tell you like it is. Any tool you purchase for your business is going to take some effort on your part and Real Geeks is no different. Do the work and get the benefits...they just make it a whole lot easier.
Support: I can say that any request or question has been answered within the same day and most of the time within hours. They also host a customer forum where agent-customers can and do share.
Cost: Very Fair. Some IDX ONLY sites cost as much as Real Geeks, but you also get an integrated CRM with it! Other Lead Generation system cost much, much more.
These Geeks are Great!

My real estate company launched the Real Geeks IDX platform in August 2011. The low cost allowed us to have a full IDX real estate website and compete with the big guys in our market without busting our budget. The results have been amazing! We are on page 1 of Google for our keywords due to Real Geeks SEO friendly website design. We get quality leads for our agents daily and have seen our conversion rates soar!

My team has developed websites with a half dozen different IDX providers and on many different software platforms. Simply put, RealGeeks websites squeeze the maximum number of leads possible out of your web traffic, and put those leads into an easy-to-use lead management system for quick follow-up by an individual agent or a team.
We tested RealGeeks by moving our SeattleCondo.com site over to their platform. Our traffic remained the same initially, but our leads increased ten-fold. The individual listing pages also seem to be indexing and showing up in SERPs more often. We're currently in the process of converting multiple sites to this platform.
If you're looking to build a new site, ask yourself what your ultimate goal is. If it's converting a larger percentage of leads and selling more homes, the RealGeeks IDX websites will do that for you immediately.

I've had a blog (AR and WP) and a website for sometime but nothing like a full on IDX system like RealGeeks. I used to focus my time and energy on trying to reach out to potential customers but with RealGeeks the customers come to me and I'm able to focus on helping the client buy/sell a home.
I use RealGeeks everyday. It's an essential part of my business and the one part that has the potential to substantially increase my production. I get business that I would have had no chance of coming close to had I not had RealGeeks.
The greatest part of RealGeeks in my opinion is how easy it is. From the initial set up to managing the leads to technical support it's all made really simple for you. Another great part of RealGeeks is that you're able to interact with other users of the IDX, share successful strategies, get technical help, and quick answers to basic questions at anytime of the day/night.
I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a comprehensive IDX system that'll change your business for the better!

I researched for several months before I chose Real Geeks ..
For several reasons, by far the best IDX I have use before. .
The SEO help is tremendous and I have thousands of indexed pages already. .
My numbers do not lie..I doubled the number of visitors to my website since I started. . and that is good thing since I started with several thousand of visitors already. .
SEO is challenging anyway. .long gone the days of set it and forget it. .
You must to contribute. .and I work very hard
With blogs, ads and neighborhood specific posts. .
But having RealGeeks on my side. . .is a fast road for me. .

When I came back into the market selling again after coaching full time I was looking for a website format that
was simple to use for buyer prospects, strong back office for follow up and lead assignment, and a website that would I could develop and build out over time. When I started doing an organic web search over different major cities across the US the one name that kept popping up was Real Geeks. After communicating with Jeff I knew I had found exactly what I was looking for. I have had a Real Geeks site now a little over a year and it has paid for itself many times over. It has been a great addition for the buyer side of my business. The additional bonus of being owned by an active and successful agent is an added bonus. I would highly recommend Real Geeks to anyone looking to grow their business.

I tried many IDX solutions before settling on Real Geeks for my website, so I can speak authority on the subject. My RG site is easy to create and captures leads very well.
The Real Geek support team is outstanding and friendly. They really take a personal interest in helping me be successful. Additionally, Real Geeks have created webinars so I can learn how to build out my website using the Real Geeks IDX system. We also have a Facebook page where subscribers can ask questions and collaborate on a variety of topics.
The best part which is the MOST IMPORTANT, is hearing from consumers how they love my website! They compliment me on its ease of use and rave about the information they have found there.
It doesn't get any better than that!
