The Oikia theme is a business theme created for the Real Estate industry. This theme is packed with built-in features and overall a well-designed theme. It does have that custom and professional, and will certainly help with getting business. The homepage displays slider gallery of images which can be of active listings you are offering. There is a nice box with “test” in it explaining each listing: very nice feature.
The next widget is a search listing widget. This is where interested house hunters or renters can input certain information to pull up listings that fit their criteria, making it easy for them to search your listings. This is a well-organized theme that helps with attracting clients and let the blog do the talking. The rest of the homepage is a collection of widgets that serve multiple useful functions.
Let’s get to some of the themes features & than screenshots if you have not looked at the demo version yet.
