Rets Rabbit


What we do

Rets Rabbit is a cloud service you can use to build real estate listings to brokerage, agent, or client websites and mobile apps.

Rets Rabbit takes the frustration and hassle of importing thousands of real estate listings and photos and gives you an easy to use service so you can focus on building your IDX-powered website or app. Developers using Rets Rabbit have saved 100s of hours of time building their own real estate import systems.

Who Is Rets Rabbit For?

Designers & Developers:

With the fragmented and confusing state of real estate technology, all too often creative professionals (designers & developers) have to compromise their creative and technical vision because the board has chosen an MLS vendor with woefully outdated and inflexible tools.

Often this leads you to build projects that lack SEO, lack responsive or mobile friendly design, lack UI/UX features that can make the home searching experience easier. At the end of the project instead of proud of your work, you’re left with a nagging feeling that you could have done more for your client.

With Rets Rabbit you can build websites and mobile apps that don’t sacrifice your creative or technical vision. We use a technology called RETS to connect to local real estate MLS’s and import listings and photos to our servers. We then give you an array of easy to use tools depending on your type of development to incorporate the listings into your website or mobile app and give you the power to build solutions your real estate clients will love!

Brokers & Agents:

Nearly 40% of buyers are searching for homes on mobile devices. Google has seen a **256% growth in real estate searches in the past four years. Yet all too often MLS searches on agent and brokerage websites are either:

  • not optimized for mobile devices
  • sending users out to another site where Google and other search engines don’t track
  • showing search results in an “iframe” widget, which is not optimized for both mobile or search engine traffic
  • So how many leads are you missing because your MLS search isn’t optimized for mobile or search engine traffic?

You don’t have to sacrifice the latest trends in buyer behavior because your third-party MLS vendor’s search can’t keep up the latest technology.

With Rets Rabbit your buyers will get accurate listings from your MLS that will allow you to keep up with the national real estate sites.

3 Simple Steps to Get you started with Rets Rabbit:

  1. Sign-up for your 30-day free trial at

    Contact Us with your RETS login url, username, and password.

    Don’t worry if you don’t have this yet! We can help you work with the local board/MLS to get you access.

  2. We import your listings

    We’ll use the RETS credentials to import your listings into our system. After we’ve successfully imported the listings (5-10 business days), we’ll then send you an access code to the Rets Rabbit.

  3. Download the WordPress plugin & start building

    After you get the access key, you can then build listings and property searches into your website or mobile app using the WordPress plugin.
