Filter by agent was created by Omar Wyllie
I have convinced multiple agents to list their properties on my website but I need each agent to have their own page (like homepage.com/agentname) that shows ONLY their listings everywhere on the page, even on the modules.

I know the modules can be filtered by country, city, property type etc but I don't see an option to filter by agent / company. This means that even though the main listings are filtered, there is still a possibilty that side modules are showing properties from a competing agent, which I want to avoid.

So is filtering by agent possible on modules, especially on the Google map and featured properties modules?

For anyone else interested in this topic, I went ahead and purchased OSP Real Homes anyway. As expected, there's no filter by agent option but there is a "Category" field that I'm using as a workaround since most of the modules already support filtering by category. The categories by default were "Flooring", "Renovations" etc which I really don't need so I'm going to try to edit some language files to change all occurences of the word "Category" to "Agent / Company", then I'll effectively be filtering by agent.

I think it'll work for my purposes, and there's the added benefit that a single property can be listed under multiple agents (since a property could be added to multiple categories).

Hopefully I don't run into any unexpected problems in the future with this workaround.

Hi,
Actually, we don't think "Agent filtering" is good idea. In real estate sites, we have a lot of agents/ owners (Some agents or owners will have the same name). So that, adding Agent filtering will make listing page become slowly, users will confuse with agents/ owners who have the same name.
Thanks
Dam
