Hi Raven, couple of things I could add…
First – here is a brief comparison of the two options you have with IDXBroker – click here.
Second, Agent Evolution used to be a separate company that got a lot of help from the folks at StudioPress. As they added themes and grew they produced their own Framework and left the Genesis community. They were recently acquired by IDXBroker so it does not surprise me that they would make comments like that to you.
We do not have plans to develop any themes for their framework. We are however in the process of building a new theme that will be for Genesis.
I personally prefer Genesis, but then I know many of the people that are part of it so I’m partial.
Best of success to you!
