I built a website using the Agent Evolution theme.
Agent Evolution is Word Press theme builder that focus's on Real Estate. They have been recognized as one of the countries top if not THE top real estate theme builder. Wp Beginner named this on of the themes for realtors in 2017.
I was introduced to this theme while I was the sales manager at imFORZA. We built hundreds of websites using this theme. For me, I was very distantly associated with the production process. I was however very in tune with the "launched" product and what happened when we performed Social Media marketing or SEO.
The short answer is when IDX broker was correctly installed and set up the Agent Evolution theme(the version we used) produced a 1-3% conversion rate. As a web development and online marketing company, a "conversion" is defined as the name, email and phone number mostly of "Buyer" leads. This result oftentimes exceeded the results of "custom" websites that cost 5-10x more.
Pro's and Con's of the Agent Evolution theme.
Very good base code Pricing is a little deceptive
One of the better responsive themes Need someone with technical skills to set it up
Long History of producing a top product Doesn't include detailed instructions for IDX broker
An established parent company The paid solution is pricy.
Designed for IDX broker specifically
It is a theme you OWN 100%
Setting this theme up especially with a well thought out IDX broker implementation without professional help would be almost impossible for 98% of all real estate agents/brokers. There is nothing wrong with charging to set it up but the pricing provided is a continuity program, and for the most part, a real estate agent would be better served to spend their money upfront as opposed to adding a $100.00 per month expense they will forget about.
Agent Evolutions sells the "framework" which is the altered coding package designed for Real Estate and IDX broker integration. It's a necessary feature and a valuable one. But the two separate prices for an audience that for the most part will be technology dabblers as opposed to full-time users is deceptive and counter-intuitive.
While there are a lot of good reasons for an agent or broker to build multiple websites most won't making the additional purchase a one time "required" upsell.
This theme does remain one of the very best options available in real estate IMO. Many smaller web design companies continue to use it as their go to"template" theme framework. Given a chance, I will use it again as well.
