This Plugin has great potential, unfortunately I experienced a number of issues and bugs that I pickup on in the first few minutes of testing it out. I was considering this for a client website but after running it I changed my mind.
Unless you're ready and willing to roll up your sleeves and trouble shoot this thing to get it to work without issue, you may want to look elsewhere.
I should note, as any experienced WordPress website developer knows, there are many factors that could be the cause of the issues I was experiencing, such as a conflict with another Plugin or the Theme I'm using, just to mention a couple.
I'll be testing this one out more and keeping an eye on upcoming versions to see if they can knock the rest of the bugs out, but for now, there's now way I can recommend using this Plugin in a client project.
Hope it helps... cheers!
I love this plugin it is exactly what I was looking for. It took a while to get it working because I had a glitch caused by MY server. Wes @ support was extremely helpful and we got it all working now. The custom fields and filters make it so easy to show the exact properies you want on the page you want!
Thank you Firestorm! I will be using you for other Real Estate clients.
Have been waiting for support for what should be a very simple problem. The custom filters that allow you to post certain properties on a page/post are not working. This sux because I have a client that is expecting this feature and the documentation (such as it is) said that it can be done.
Very disappointed and am now looking for another solution.

Listings show Error 404 ' Not Found despite they are published.
Late or null response on Support Submited tickets.
Consider a donation to the poor instead of throwing your money away with this plugin.
Do not even bother using this plugin. The support is horrible, Wes says he'll get back to you then never does (happened to me on MANY occasions). After that each update to the plugin produces new errors and bugs I have to fix myself. Just go somewhere else.
Permalink issue when you click View Listings, Search, etc. -Error: Sorry The page or document you are looking for doesn't seem to exist
Pro Version settings go back to default when you hit "Update".
Don't buy this plugin. FireStorm is just stealing your money. There is zero support.
Nice but we hope that support must do what they say and answer all our questions. They have been saying that they will include the feature of uploading multiple photos at the same time when adding listing but after a year, they haven't doing it!
You are great and you helped many people. Please help us too in our questions and problems.
Wes from Firestorm does not stand behind his product. We paid good money for a plugin that simply doesn't work as he has claimed. His support is terrible and actually avoids phone calls. He threatened not providing phone support because we got angry at him. This is business, Wes. Grow up. Fix your product.
Maybe if you know how to write code to customize and fix the many problems with this plugin it could be ok for you. Problems I had:
Listing Sorting stuck on alphabetical by name, could not change order of listings without deleting listings and starting over.
Asking Price field did not work
Could not change featured image without deleting listing entirely
Not compatible with nextgen gallery and plugin has no gallery or slideshow that works
Google Map only displays on listing page and does not work
I spent the $60. for the upgrade so I could get google map and it was worthless. My client only had 15-20 listings so in the end would have been easier just to use a blog format because of all the problems with this plugin. I would not reccomend it, found it very frustating and time consuming troubleshhooting the issues. Don't expect much support either even if you buy the upgrade.
Setup and input a listing and it showed up fine in summary of listings. When I clicked to view it got 404 page not found message. Tried several times. Reinstalled and tried again and the same thing happened.
