All classified scripts based on the WorksForWeb platform, including iRealty, offer a great way of searching among registered users in a particular user group or on the entire website.
Search results will be a list of users found with their brief descriptions. Each item on the user search results page contains a very brief overview of the company, links to the full company profile, all listings by this company, and a contact user page (all modifiable via templates).
The admin can further customize and add various modules to the User Search page, determine which user groups are available for search (e.g., individual users should probably not be available for search), and add additional user details as search parameters. (Read iRealty user manual)

This will increase the popularity of your website and will provide a steady source of target visitors, and will expand the outreach for your customers among brokers and agents. Here is an example of the corporate user profile Moreover, many customers choose what broker/agent they want to work with. Agent/broker search tools help find the best among certified professionals in this particular town. Therefore, your website becomes not only a platform to help people find a new home, but also a real estate professional business directory with a huge marketing perspective for those listed on it.
