We need a coder that is very familiar with OpenRealty and can write a php script that can connect to a Microsoft SQL database and retrieve information, then automatically place it into the correct OpenRealty Database fields. The purpose of this is to import the MLS (Real Estate Listings) into OpenRealty automatically and create listings.
There are a few programs out there that will do this but they connect via FTP and we need ours to connect to a Microsoft SQL database because that is how our mls stores it’s data.
There is a free Open Source importer out there called Viele RETS ([url removed, login to view]) that will give you an exact idea of what we are trying to accomplish. Once again this software connects via FTP and we need it to connect via Microsoft SQL, but you can get the general idea of what we need by looking at this software.
I think this could be fairly easy for someone who knows OpenRealty very well and has MySQL experience. You could even use much of the code from Viele RETS, but make it connect to a Microsoft SQL database instead. I am sure there is much more involved than that but you can get the general idea from checking out viele rets.
Open to suggestions, we just really need to get this accomplished. We really want someone who is going to be around for a little bit as well, since I am sure we will have many updates and upgrades we will want to make in the near future as well, and finding coder to work with others work can be hard.
Coder would be responsible for creating the script, installing the script and configuring it to work with our MLS repository database. It honestly should not be that difficult for someone with a lot of experience.
PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH OPEN REALTY + Microsoft SQL
