- Many nice features.
- lack of quick support (was better initially. Bugs reported in Membership Subscription & Search Module not sorted out even after 1 month.)
- lack of forum (This is required because they work 5 days a week. Sometimes we can get quick support/help from users.)
- No notification to clients when there's an update.
Overall one of the best Real Estate Extension. There are few more features required to make this extension even better specially responsive layout, Jom Social / CB integration...
We appreciate your kind feedback and your suggestions list that we receive regularly from you. We are really sorry if we haven't met your expectaions regarding support speed but to fix some bugs we need more time than 24 hours specially if these improvements are already scheduled for the next version as they are complicated and touch large parts of code. As for the features that our component still lacks, we hope you will enjoy the next release with responsive template and component layout. We really hope that next release will be worth 5 stars from you! :) Any way a big Thank You and keep staying with us!
My client wanted to pick up a feed from a well known property system in the UK and although quite a lot of customisation was needed the team at FW Real Estate pulled it off and my client is very pleased with the end result.
This is the second site I have used FW Real Estate on and I hope to use it on many more in the future.
Big thanks to Svetlana and the developers.
The most important of all: The support really rocks! Instant responses via chat / e-mail, r e a l l y patient with your questions. They are kindly reading all of your requests and trying to do eeeverything(!) to find a solution!
If you are looking for a great product and effective partners search no more! Go 4 it!
The support is available 5 days a week. If I have to make a suggestion, it would be to reduce the time between support ticket submitting and response. Thank you.
Thank you for your review. We have been working with you for about a year already and did our best to reply your every email according to our Support Rules. We replied the next day after we have received your email or even the day we received it. Customization requests require usually more time for response and we are sorry if you had to wait.
It is a pity to hear a little disappointment in your words but any way we must thank you for pointing this out as now we know what we should take care of better.
Dear Petros, thank you very much for your great review! We were happy to cooperate with you and complete our project successfully despite all difficulties:)
