I think they want updated info with latest real estate topics. Explain things in a more private way vs in person. Shop for info in their jammies.

Search should be easily seen & easy to do with instant results.

They can find out a little bit more about you without you knowing.

I want it to be the go-to website that is preferred by buyers - my buyers - not Z, T, R or Sharkfin.

As Chris Ann Cleland said, I want it to reflect me and my work/service history with sales & testimonials (which I do have). 

I also want it to be mobile-friendly, which it is. My IDX needs to also be user-friendly and unframed. 

There's some starters for you, Tammy!

I expect a service that keeps it up.  (all the moving parts- the IDX, plug ins etc.)

I think clients expect both information about the area and listings.  I'm pretty happy with what I have now.  Need to build some stuff to replace things I used to have when the service I used went belly up.

Before I have a website I have determined what purpose it serves.

For example MY CLIENTS have no regard about website lead generation but do have a need for resources and information.

I suggest a 'One Size Fits All' website may not fit well many of the needs of ones business.

What my clients want is information they can not easily find anywhere else. Whether is invisible real estate inventory, insurance resource, repair or evaluations, being the provider of exclusive information is a good purpose for a website.

Majority agents in local brokerages do not even have website presence. This is Silicon Valley.  They find realtors through word of the mouth, SOP or human contact. Agents do vey well. Majority of clients are from Social Media, Apple, Google, Chip, 8 smart phone R&D centers, electric car companies. All here are very tech savvy.  

Another thing that stands out is giant bill boards along freeways.
