I like the simplicity of keeping my blogging on AR.

If I needed to upgrade to something more complex I would probably be wise to hire someone like Nestor & Katerina Gasset

Yes, AgentEvolution has WordPress themes for real estate websites. If you don't want to go to the trouble of setting it all up yourself, you should check with Charra Bennett of YourSiteNeedsMe SEO Team. She's very reasonable and get your website all set up and get your IDX up and running!!!

Well there ain't one that doesn't involve coding or it wouldn't be a website. I can't give you any suggestions that would help as I hate mine at the moment. Do not use Placester.

I use a wordpress platform through 220 Marketing (if you go with them, tell em I sent you, as they offer referral discoutns!) ---- I've used them for years though, and their wordpress sites are clean, and the back end is very easy to use (they handle the coding part of everything, you can make edits in simple text editor format)

Buyer Beware:  BE CAREFUL of recommendations thrown out by other members of the AR community.  Many have not used the people they recommend ... they just know that those folks do websites.  I personally have been burned by trusting too much in the AR community.  Pay close attention to what Corinne Guest, Managing Broker has to say.

Nestor & Katerina Gasset recommend Thrive themes.  I use the Quest theme (it's not a real estate specific one) and if I wanted I can add an IDX if I wanted.  I recommend the "All in one SEO" plugin to take care of the SEO tasks for you.

http://www.engageremarketing.com/ is an amazing option and you can get small town service with a GODADDY style platform with rti-web.com for your domain purchase.  Before I was in real estate I was in web hosting and design and these guys are top notch!

It depends on the site IMO - I like simple themes for satellite sites but if it is your primary I would not go with a WP site myself.
