Santa Rosa, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
With the launch of PressRE at Atlantic City’s Triple Play REALTORS® Conference on December 9-12, leading real estate technology tools firm Properties Online has introduced yet another custom web-based technology service designed specifically for real estate professionals: WordPress themes for real estate agents.
Today, there are more than 72 million active WordPress websites around the world, with major users – among them including TED, CBS Radio, CNN and Forbes – producing about 36.3 million new posts to WordPress blogs every month. Of every 100 new domains created in the United States, 22 are running WordPress. And 100,000 new WordPress sites are created every day. PressRE puts the incredible reach of WordPress into the hands of busy real estate agents, granting them quality, professional access to more than 37 million global searches that occur via WordPress every month.
“At PressRE we have taken the stress out of real estate website design by developing a turnkey system that can be completely customized to meet your needs,” Amanda Cornelius, co-founder and CEO of Properties Online, told conference attendees. “Because we come from the real estate industry, we know what works. We won’t waste your time chasing after the next Internet fad and we won’t nickel and dime you either. We will, however, provide you with a stellar website, professionally designed and built with the specific needs of home buyers and sellers in mind.”
TURNKEY WEBSITE. Customers receive a fully functional website customized to their exact specifications. These websites are unique to each agent, and the tech team installs themes, modifies content and provides custom graphics to ensure agent satisfaction.

AGENT & STAFF PAGES. Agents and staff can each manage their own bios, listings and leads through individual pages.
IDX SITE ACTIVITY EMAILS. Automated, mobile-friendly emails provide daily, weekly, or monthly reports on lead activity on each site, allowing agents to view their most active leads, properties saved, email alert click-thrus, total searches, total properties viewed, and more.

“The PressRE system has been designed with busy real estate professionals in mind,” says Cornelius. “To be competitive, they need a website that performs with up-to-the-minute technology and site optimization. This is difficult to manage for many agents, so we’ve taken the guess work and difficulty out of the equation completely. It’s a perfect complement to our other services, and we’re delighted to make it available to agents and other real estate professionals now.”
