    its a wp THEME that you want rather than a plugin. best theme ive seen is this one which costs $50 and is being requested for sharing in this post:

    2nd best is this which is already available for sharing but has some limitations (for instance even if youre not based in USA you MUST still include the reference to mls numbers, also, there isnt a facility to show SOLD signs, some of the customisation isnt as straight forward as the developers would have you believe), but having said all of that its still a decent theme:

    The complications arise when integrating the realtors listing feed from whatever integration software their real estate board supports. Every board is different, and some use technologies that are only compatible with certain plugins. Look into what your clients are using, and plan out the costs of the proper plugins needed for integration. From my experience, all of them were pricey and had monthly feed.

    interesting you say all of that because in the UK we dont have the same issues that youre referring to. bear in mind the o.p. is setting up his site for a french client, he / they may be similar to uk agents.

    either way, what are your recommendations for themes?

    There are quite a few clean, moderate looking realtor themes over at themeforest, have a look.

    was hoping you were going to make a personal recommendation based on personal use, youve already seen mine (OpenDoor theme for realtors and auto traders) but no worries if you dont want to share..


    OPEN DOOR THEME:
