meet the wizards
the magic behind great real estate websites

- est. 2006 - we have a passion for quality design & effective web strategies

The name IDX Wizards is fairly new but the company and people behind it are certainly not. Steps Marketing, Inc. is the parent company to IDX Wizards and has been creating amazing real estate websites and helping agents with marketing for over 10 years. We are a group of extraordinarily talented individuals in the relentless pursuit of a beautiful internet. We are good at what we do. We are also extremely humble... :)

We develop our websites with the end user in mind. We decided that we only wanted to sell websites that we would want to use and thus your clients will want to use. This appproach allows us to focus on clean, elegant and useful designs that provide a great user experience as well as generates more business for our clients.

not all wizards wear hats... our core development team
