This past year has brought us to an interesting point in time. Open Realty 2.5.6 is out with lots of new features, The VOW policy is adopted by MLS's across the country and RETS servers are provided by most MLS' per NAR mandates.
With so many new technologies and business rules available it was time to upgrade my site to all of the latest software. I especially wanted to upgrade from my custom coded IDX importer to a RETS feed. I tried some of the open source RETS clients that are available. Especially the ones that are supposed to work with Open Realty. I then contacted Transparent Technologies about Transparent RETS.
You all were very helpful and took the time to assess my MLS’s server, finding some RETS standards compliance issues. ( this was a great help in getting the corrections made) As you know, I eventually bought the product and was elated to find that it was extremely easy to install and set up. The user interface is much better than other RETS Clients I tried and within minutes was connected to the RETS server and pulling data.
The TRETS client queried the server and displayed all of the property fields available. I simply went down the list and checked the fields I wanted to import and hit "Auto Map". The system automatically created all of the fields in my OR database! Brilliant! Setting up the queries to only import the data I wanted was also extremely easy and intuitive.
Literally, in 10 minutes I was pulling data into my site. It automatically cleaned up the database by removing old properties and it works with OR’s new property notification system. Something I was missing from my custom coded solution. The best part is that it is so easy to use that I do not worry about the MLS making data changes in the future. This is going to make my site much easier to maintain. I also feel the site is on a much better platform on which to add future capabilities.
Considering the many hours I spent with other products to get any data imported, and all the tinkering required for making changes to the import, I feel the cost of Transparent RETS was a bargain. The fact that you were there to help with identifying issues on my MLS’s server was also a huge benefit and something I would never have been able to do on my own.
I am looking forward to completing the implementation of my new site using this product. It truly is a huge improvement to my site.
I would recommend this product to anyone who is setting up an OR site and has a RETS server available. It is the way to go.
Thanks so much for this product.

Open-Realty & IDXManager
Open Realty is a gift. We used it to develop a highly customized website with an automated IDX feed, and were impressed with the results. This open-source software program is flexible and stable with an active community forum for peer support. It laid a solid foundation for our unique customization needs -- and best of all, it was free.
With our high-profile client, we also needed some other services tailored to our specific needs. In addition to purchasing the IDX Manager add-on from Transparent Technologies, we also signed up for their hosting and technical support packages. This was probably the best decision we made in our website development process. The team at Transparent Technologies was exceptionally helpful, responding to each of our development requests within a day -- even on weekends and holidays (do they ever rest?). They not only provided useful technical solutions to problems we didn't even expect them to solve, but they also came loaded with important knowledge about MLS listing laws. Their advice was invaluable, and we couldn't have done it without them.

We have been developing websites for clients for a number of years. We often have to deal with support departments and over the years we have found that many of these (probably the majority) have a poor or not so great support service. Often we have been of the thought that "we got their money now - so they can wait for the support" kind of attitude. "Transparent Technologies" have surpassed our best hopes for support. Not only is Open Realty a truly established and excellent product but the level of support, the turn around time, the amount of patience and commitment to quality service Transparent Technologies have given us - is simply astonishing. If there is anyone out there who has not made their minds up about purchasing the professional services from TT then we urge you to go with them. What price do you pay for true peace of mind in today's market of IT?
Thank you once again Transparent Technologies for your ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction. Simple Superb.

I already have this idea of doing a multiple Realtor web sites with the capability to pool MLS database. Then, I found Open-Realty and that is! By tweaking of php scripts. I had done it! Without great help from Transparent Technologies, I wouldn't be able to do up Multiple linked Property Portal Web Sites. The flexibility to be able to configure access to hosting MySql is very important, only Transparent Technologies provide this feature.

Open-Realty® Extras Launched
10/20/2011 09:52 PM

I am pleased to announce that we have launched a new Open-Realty® Extras directory on this site. The new OR Extras section replaces our old separate add-ons web site and it is better integrated with the rest of the main OR web site.. The new Extras directory allows add-on and template developers to list their products making it easy to find new ways to expand the features and change the look of your OR-based web site. We will also be adding some new official Transparent Tech add-ons and templates to the Extras directory over the next couple of months. For add-on developers we have also updated the Framework add-on specifically (which is available for download via the new OR Extras directory), which includes examples of the latest add-on features, API, and template system

TransparentRETS v2.1.1 Released
10/19/2011 10:01 PM

We have released an update to our TransparentRETS add-on for Open-Reatly® v3.1.10+. This new release adds the ability to link to photos from a RETS server instead of downloading them to your hosting account. This can greatly speed-up a RETS import, while saving clients a lot of storage and bandwidth. The RETS server must support obtaining photo links using the "location=1" flag, this feature is optional in the RETS specification and not all RETS server vendors presently support doing this. You will need to check with the MLS or their server vendor to see if their RETS server supports this option. If you have any questions regarding a specific RETS server's ability to support this feature our sales team can assist you in determining comparability assuming you have your login credentials to the RETS server in question.

TransparentRETS v2.1.1

New Features

  • Added support for the optional "location=1" RETS parameter. This provides the ability to store links to photos stored on the RETS server instead of downloading and storing raw photos.

Bug Fixes

  • Ensure any empty fields are always created with an empty value.
  • Prevent double escaping any imported photo descriptions.

Note: If you are running an OR version prior to v3.1.10 you will need to upgrade OR first before upgrading TransparentRETS.

Open-Realty v3 - One Year Later
06/15/2011 12:26 PM

One year ago we released Open-Realty® v3.0,  which included new features like our Blog Manager, customizable SEO URL generation, the ability to post listings to Twitter, and a lot of other desirable features and improvements. The v3.0 release also marked the retirement of our open source project version of Open-Realty® and for the first time, professional commercial support was offered as a part of our OR v3 Professional Edition License. There was much speculation from the open source community and our usual detractors about OR moving from what was essentially a "free beer" business model to a commercial business model, and some naysayers even went so far as to insist that OR could never survive if offered as a commercially supported application.
