Each of our Partner Spotlight articles shares insights from current iHomefinder partners about the benefits of our partner program and how iHomefinder products fit into the services they offer. We recently caught up with Ram Dettmer from Hungry Ram of Orange County, CA to learn more about his success serving real estate professionals as an iHomefinder partner.
Services offered: Web Design and Development Services
What do you like about working with iHomefinder?
I’ve worked with several IDX companies in the past and found iHomefinder to be the most flexible for my business model. I got the best support from their team who were always more than informative. I spoke to one of their senior developers about the future of their products and I am impressed with the direction of iHomefinder and plan to continue my business with them.
Do you give our products a white label when you include them in your service?
What technology platform do you use for your websites?
I’m using a new web development architecture called jam stack. It is not a specific technology, but a collection of tools and workflow for modern web development designed to make websites faster, more secure and more easily scalable. Most website agencies use WordPress for building websites, but I wanted to stand out and do something different that would make my websites perform better than a WordPress website. This has especially helped me in the real estate world where almost every real estate website is on WordPress.
What do you like about our website integration and customization options?
I like that iHomefinder allows for customization such as controlling widget settings and configuring how lists are displayed on the website. Since websites for my clients are completely static web pages, iHomefinder integrates smoothly with the dynamic URLs I use.
Do you use our partner APIs?
Not at the moment, but we’d like to learn more about the different types of APIs iHomefinder has to offer.
What else would you like to share about your experience working with us?
Working with iHomefinder was extremely easy and I enjoy working with their support department. Setting up my clients for MLS approval is a smooth process and whenever I need follow up or have concerns, their support is very prompt. I recently launched complexlivingrealestate.com and the support team helped me through the approval process.
How have iHomefinder products helped with user engagement and lead registrations (enquiries, email alert signups, market report subscriptions, etc.) on your customers’ websites?
My customers are seeing an increase in user engagement when providing email alerts. I love the alerts iHomefinder gives when new offers hit the market. By looking at the overall report iHomefinder provides, we can track how many properties are viewed, who is viewing them, and contacting the leads.
