In 2018 there were 1.36 million real estate professional members in the National Association of Realtors.
That means there is a huge demand for realtor websites.
Since WordPress is the number 1 website platform these days, it stands to reason that the demand for real estate WordPress themes is high. The result is, and this is good for realtors, there is a huge selection of real estate specific themes that create terrific agent websites.
2 ways to buy a license to a WordPress theme:
- You can buy a licence from a dedicated WordPress theme developer, or
- Buy a license to a theme from a large theme store featuring themes from thousands of theme developers.
My preferred approach is to buy themes from a developer with their own website and support. I’ve purchased licenses to literally dozens (probably hundreds) of themes over the years and I’ve found buying from an established developer is the best approach.
Accordingly, the first 5 themes listed below are from theme developers with their own website and support.
FYI, if you’re going to build your own site with these themes, here’s a great article on how to start a WordPress website.
The following 25 themes are found on large WP theme stores.

Dedicated Theme Developers
Agent Pro Theme by StudioPress
I’ve used many StudioPress themes including their Agent Pro theme over the years. This is the theme platform that many website developers use for clients because of the ability to fully customize the designs and more importantly, the quality of the framework.
Agent Pro is designed specifically for realtors as it creates property listing pages which can be tagged and categorized extensively. The rest of the site features those listings as well as the realtor(s).
Here’s a screenshot of an example home page:
Below is an example of a property listing page:
ElegantEstate is by the very popular theme developer Elegant Themes.
I’ve used several of their WP themes over the years. They are designed to look amazing with some nuanced graphic elements and user-friendly.
ElegantEstate doesn’t look like a Property or Real Estate theme as much as it does look like it’s promoting art. And since selling Real Estate is a fine art, the better it is. It has five unique color schemes that can complement the existing brand. The ePanel theme options will allow customization without having to code for anything.
Like StudioPress, Elegant Themes offers a real estate specific theme which creates individual property listings.
