    Is it possible to take data from a site and upload it onto our site? Specificaly the real estate area. Not sure how else to get listings so is it possible to take house images/details from one site and put it on ours?

    What you're looking for is MLS data. Just search for various MLS listing APIs.

    You need to be an agent to get those. I'm wondering how the big sites do it and get their listings

    Yes it is possible.

    Look into web requests and web scraping (with regex, or a html parser). After you get the data you need, it's up to you to display it properly.

    If you use the image tag just put the url as the file path or you could use a php script
