My Online Real Estate & Tierra Madre Realty

A current project that I'm spending a lot of time on is developing website hosting tools for real estate agents. These tools allow agents to integrate listings from the local Multiple Listing Service into their websites. People searching for homes can get more of the information they're looking for. And it's branded by the agent, increasing their prospects and clients.

The project is in an early state of development, but you can see the initial work at:

I'm Back

I started this site several months ago. At the same time I registered Radio Userland, I also downloaded an evaluation version of Frontier. My plan was to purchase Frontier and use it for my real estate project.

After a few months using it, I've changed my mind. Mostly I just don't want to run Windows server:
  • I don't know anything about Windows adminstration and I'm not interested in learning. I already spend way too much time trying to keep up with security issues on Unix.
  • I already have a lot of Unix server power that needs to be used.
  • The Windows server needs a lot more babysitting. The Unix boxes just run on their own once they're configured.

I realized that I already have server solutions that I'm happy with. What I want is a good weblogging desktop program. That's Radio. What I need now is better integration of Radio with the other tools I use: Zope, Plone and dadaIMC.
