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.

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.

Open-Realty® 3.0.11 Release Notes
11/17/2010 08:26 PM

We have just released Open-Realt®y 3.0.11. This update includes a number of new API commands, which will benefit add-on developers and third parties wanting to retrieve data from Open-Realty®.  We are now also using these new API commands to build the search page and search result pages. We have gained almost a 50% speed increase in rendering certain search pages. Also we have gained about a 16% speed increase in building the search result page.  

I was recently asked, why a developer should use the API?  The API should be used instead of doing direct SQL management of the OR database. This allows us to modify ORs database structure in the future, without breaking your add-ons. It's also a lot faster than writing custom code and queries. For example, if your add-on creates a property class, instead of manually inserting the property class into the database with some custom code and SQL you should use the pclass API. Our add-ons and Open-Realty® itself make use of the API. We are working steadily with each update to make every aspect of Open-Realty use the API. This is an ongoing process, and will take us many more releases before it is 100% complete. Add-on developers that have questions about our API, can post those questions to our support forums and we will be happy to assist you. 

Along with the API changes detailed above, Open-Realty® v3.0.11 includes the following other changes.

  • TEMPLATE: Agent/Member Signup Pages have been templated.  (IMPORTANT! Copy the new agent_signup.html and member_signup.html template files from the lazuli template to your custom template folder after upgrading.)
  • Fixed the "Tag Setup" Tab in the Blog configuration screen that was throwing an error.
  • Fixed an issue where referrer check was preventing mail from being sent when using listing notifications. 
  • Improved error reporting in listing notifications
  • Added an option to site config to set how many thumbnails will be shown per group on the slideshow template.  (The admin template file site_config_uploads.html was modified)
  • Added an option to site config to control the number of listings shown per page in the Listing Editor. (The admin template file site_config_listings.html was modified)
  • API: New listing__read API command, allows you to retrieve a listing record.
  • API: New listing__search API command allows you to retrieve a list of listing id's that match your criteria.
  • API: New field_metadata API command, allows you to retrieve information on listing fields.

API documentation can be found at the following link: http://api.open-realty.org/

Open-Realty® 3.0.10
10/18/2010 01:49 PM
