What does CanAgent Pro Provide?
CanAgent pro firstly provides a plugin that can be installed into any Realtor’s or Brokerage wordpress website to provide that data connection to the CREA DDF® Listing server to provide indexable (search engine searchable) content for that website and format the listings in such a way that suits the website owners specific needs.
MORE THAN THAT!
CanAgent Pro takes the horror out of installing, configuring, fixing, solving problems by supplying the plugin with free installation, configuration and to have your pages created for you, how you need them to be.
Most other wordpress listing plugins supply you with the plugin and license and you are then fed to the dogs to get things intalled and working, and more often than not correcting stylesheet issues where other necessary plugins and themes conflict or render things unsightly. And we make ourselves available to fix issues down the road as you add and adjust your website over time. CanAgent pro is more than just a plugin, it’s your dedicated support team!
