Real estate website on a Mac Book

Before & After: Dickens Mitchener

Dickens Mitchener, a leading real estate brokerage firm in Charlotte, North Carolina, came to Southern Web seeking a modern, user-friendly website with advanced property search functionality. In addition to designing a uniquely custom responsive theme based on the WordPress content management system, our developers worked with the team at Dickens Mitchener to debut our latest offering, a fully customized Internet Data Exchange (IDX) solution.

Our IDX goes above and beyond any other solution currently available to real estate professionals. Using advanced markup, more information from a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) feed is available to search engines, like Google and Bing, than ever before meaning listings that use our IDX solution can be found and indexed by search engines far easier than those using other IDX services. Currently, no real estate website, outside of Zillow and Trulia, has such detailed functionality.

“Thanks to a combined effort from our team of developers and programmers, we’re able to provide our real estate clients the most advanced IDX service currently available,” said Southern Web’s lead developer Ricky Lee Whittemore. “We’re excited to finally release our IDX. We’re even more excited that Dickens Mitchener is our first client to implement it on their website.”

In addition to providing advanced indexing features, the new Dickens Mitchener website also features dynamic agent profile pages that automatically update with new agent listings, a function that allows visitors to request a scheduled property showing and a flexible custom map search feature.

Vicky Mitchener, founder of Dickens Mitchener, was complimentary in her words regarding her company’s new website.

“It was a pleasure to work with the team from Southern Web,” Mitchener said. “They built a website that matched our company culture and vision exactly as we requested. Southern Web worked with our Dickens Mitchener team throughout the project to ensure our satisfaction with tremendous results.”
