I have heard of both but have NO personal experience and have not heard of anyone that has used them. 

However, I am very familiar with several other options including one very similar to the ones you inquired about, Real Geeks ... There are two agents locally that use Real Geeks and both of them have excellent SEO and love the CRM. I spoke with RG and was impressed with their system.

I have a custom word press site and a Kunversion site and love them both. However, if I could do it over, I would go with Real Geeks over Kunversion.

Have not heard of either. I had many problems with the MLS getting along with their IDX. Always excuses but never a working site. Use caution.

No experience with either one.

I would visit 3-5 websites from each service at different times of the day, and would check, at a minimum,  the following in both desktop and mobile (try with phone service only, not wi-fi):
- are they fast
- does everything display correctly
- are they easy to use
- is it easy to signup

About SEO
- do the websites rank for any medium difficulty terms

Better yet, ask them to give you a few examples of their websites that rank well. Ask them to give you at least 10 good terms each ranks for, especially if they rank above Zillow, Trulia, etc.

I have not heard of them but that might not mean anything. After all, I am not looking for a new IDX, although iHomefinder is a PITA. Also, our MLS must approve (read: get kickback) on all IDX subscriptions, and they might not be approved in northern California.

The only thing I heard about Real Geeks is the rumor that they sucked in a Sacramento agent who, after using their website got so many hits that Real Geeks set up its own Sacramento website to compete with her SEO. Whether that is a true story, I did not collaborate.
