Ok, I hate Zillow and don't want to have anything to do with them. That being said, I still decided to get the Diverse Solutions plugin for my WordPress site. I have the PRO plan for $60/month.
Like others, I have a compatibility issue between my theme and the plugin. I went thru a web developer thru Fiverr.com to get this resolved for $20.
Overall, this is a very good plugin! SEO is great since there are no iframes. My main gripe would be a lack of customization on my website. I would like to change the look and some of the text of the search box. I know there are limited ways to do that with a professional's help, but it would be nice if everyday users like me had access to do that.
Unlike others, I have never had any customer service issues. It's always been great. Upon first getting the service, they were very good at walking me thru what I needed to do. They followed up with e-mail instructions to make it as painless as possible. I've also emailed them a few times with technical questions-they have always answered me back same day or next day.
The dsIDXpress product is great, if you know how to use it! It's a basic IDX with a few search limitations but all in all is great toward SEO. Unlike a lot of other vendors I've used in the past, dsIDXpress uses a dynamic display to display results when you search. They also don't use any sub domains to display listings on pages YOU create with the plugin. I think it's a great value at 29.95 a month if used properly and it meets your sites end goal. It's not geared for everyone but can be an incredibly useful tool especially at under 50 a month. I've used it on a handful of client websites when they want something simple and are just looking to get a simple search experience on the site without going the custom route. Knocked down a star for the lack of weekend support which would be great, but it's not a deal breaker for me at the end of the day.
