Custom WordPress site for Tad Bromfield, who is a Chattanooga based commercial Realtor. Tad needed something simple, mobile responsive, and easy to use with a way to showcase his listings, both past and present.
The design on this site was pretty straightforward, as we chose to start with the lovely Minimum Pro Theme from StudioPress. One thing I love about the Genesis Framework is the abundance of solid child themes which can give a smaller project a great jump start.
Our bigger challenge was sorting through how to set up Tad’s listings page and combine it with his own MLS listings. His service provided a widget, but it wasn’t mobile responsive and did not solve the issue of how to add listings to the site itself, either for current information or for historical records, so I wanted to look elsewhere.
This spring, I wrote and released a plugin called Simple Listings for Genesis, and that plugin is the brainchild of this project. Other real estate plugins I explored were simply too much for this project. I determined that I needed to set up a custom post type for Tad’s listings, and decided that what I was doing might be useful to more people than just myself, so I packaged it up and shared it. Tad (and anyone else who would like to use it) now has a super easy way to add new listings to his site without duplicating his work.
