This plugin works so well. It was a breeze to set up and get running (took less than 1/2 a day to get everything set up just like I wanted). I’ve been using this solution for over 3 years. In that time, we’ve had one issue crop up which the development team worked quickly to resolve.
13. mai 2024
We’ve been using PropertyHive to migrate a website from Rex Software to Street. The overall developer experience was amazing. Lot of stuff that worked out of the box, and it’s quite easy to create your own custom functionalities by using the hooks. Would definitely recommend this plugin. The support is excellent too.

I’ve used various plugins to streamline property management processes. However, nothing quite compares to the unparalleled excellence of Property Hive. From the moment I integrated it into my WordPress site, I was blown away by its extensive features and intuitive interface. One of the standout qualities of Property Hive is its robust functionality. Whether it’s effortlessly creating and managing property listings or seamlessly handling inquiries and appointments, this plugin exceeds expectations at every turn. Its flexibility and customization options have allowed me to tailor the platform to suit my specific needs, ensuring a seamless and personalised experience. But what also truly sets Property Hive apart is its exceptional support. In my years of working with various plugins, I’ve never encountered support as responsive, knowledgeable, and dedicated as Steve behind Property Hive. Above and beyond to address any queries or concerns promptly from Day 1, offering insightful solutions and guidance every step of the way. His commitment to customer satisfaction is truly commendable and has made all the difference. Property Hive’s continuous updates and improvements demonstrate a commitment to staying ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving industry. With each new feature and enhancement, it becomes increasingly clear that Property Hive is not just a plugin but a dynamic tool that grows and evolves alongside its users. Look at the changelog for yourself, and it’s obvious how much detail, thought and incredible work has gone into Property Hive. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Property Hive to any property professional looking to streamline their operations and elevate their business to new heights. With its unparalleled functionality, customisable features, and exceptional support, Property Hive is going to an indispensable asset in my arsenal, and I have no doubt it will do the same for anyone who chooses to harness its power.Thank you!

Brilliant plugin that is consistently being developed. We recently built a site using Bricks Builder, and I recently reached out to PropertyHive to see if they would consider an integration, and they said yes! They built the integration and now we can built Property Pages directly through Bricks. The team have worked with us to fix bugs and add additional functionalties. I can’t thank Steve enough for their support.

What a great plugin. Made even greater with their new Bricks builder integration – the developer sent me a beta version of the integration after I reached out to ask a couple of templating questions. The support is the best I have ever received from any plugin developer – hats off mate. cheers

Was introduced to Property Hive and was sceptical. I have used many new tools when building websites and many look good but fall along the way. Property Hive was simple to add and activate. Most importantly the support from their team was excellent and gives me absolute confidence that this is an excellent choice to add to a property website. Thank you and hope to use Property Hive on many other sites in the future.
