Last night saw the release of version 3.7.23 for BRIXWORK {real estate} – the Realtor® website platform to move you forward! This is not a major upgrade, but important nonetheless.

A few bugs were caught & squashed, some user interface elements were updated and such. But the most important upgrade comes from the property fetching module. Some of the upgrades were courtesy of feedback from one of our loyal clients, Tyler Volker of West Vancouver.

New Listing flags for MLS® listings

Automated "Just Listed" or "New Listing" flags make browsing easier

Property Retrieval Module Upgrades

Our property display module has been going through some major upgrades, especially since the inception of the MLS Reciprocity integration we completed in 2011. “Completed” is a strange word in the world of software development, as it’s never really “complete”, but rather, a “phase” has been struck, with more improvements to come. Here’s what we improved on the property retrieval module:

  • Speed – we made code optimizations to speed up the retrieval of properties sorted by city & subarea flags.
  • Status remarks – for MLS® fed listings, we updated the remarks so that it automatically displays “New Listing” or “Just Listed” based on the listed date (beta)
  • Ordering & Sorting – for Realtors® who display a hybrid of their own listings as well as MLS® Reciprocity listings, we’ve created a multi-dimensional ordering scheme that gives you more flexibility.

User Interface Upgrades (Admin Panel)

The back-end (Admin panel) used by real estate agents to update & maintain their own sites has been upgraded.

  • Bugs in the resource/links section caught and fixed
  • Menubar on top given more space, the “NEW” badge removed (it’s been a while since our overhaul to version 3 with the new interface, we realized!)
  • Links to the support channel provided in more places for easy access (you can always directly visit for tech support)

Other than that, we made some small display adjustments, type-o fixing and more – nothing too noteworthy, so we’ll keep it short.
