I have been using Optima Express for several months now and have been really impressed with its features and the support. We have integrated it on a custom WordPress site with a custom non-responsive (gulp) theme and have been really happy with the results. We have been able to use the mobile IDX solution included to re-direct our non-responsive pages to the mobile site that corresponds to our account. Creating city and neighborhood pages is easy with city searches and the new polygon search which allows you to draw an area on the map and include all listings within that area.
Support gets better and better - often response is same day via email, and you often hear from the same set of people so you can build a familiarity as they help you with your site. I have suggested that they release updates to the plugin early in the week so if there are issues we aren't into the weekend.
What I'd love to see: even more SEO features, email updates whenever there are new listings, not just at one time per day (8 am or so).... and non-idx pages for their open house shortcode so I can add custom text on that page of my site.
Overall I am very pleased with this plugin.
I am working on a new real estate for a client. She had previously used the ihomefinder idx plugin for a non WordPress site.
The transition was remarkably smooth but I did encounter a few bumps along the way. The support staff was superb in addressing my issues and responded quickly and effectively.
I am so happy I chose this plugin and my client is even happier!
Thanks ihomefinder for a great product!
We have developed real estate websites for more than 15 years and iHomefinder has continually impressed us with their solution. This is clearly one of the best plugins we have used to add IDX data to our clients sites.
It takes a little tinkering to get it to work perfectly with whatever theme you decide to use, but this IDX was a breeze to setup, is super simple to use, and there are a ton of great features (lead capture, email sign-ups, etc) that we haven't even gotten into yet.
Best thing is all the SEO juice stays on your website (as opposed to building iFrames or sending clicks elsewhere like other IDX's do).
I'll be recommending this to all of my Real Estate clients.
tech Support is helpful every single time.
they keep upgrading their apps.

not sure why anyone has had anything other than great experience. we are very demanding
We have gone through multiple plugins and this one is my favorite so far. Better priced and worth every penny.
