I feel my pages are missing something and can't put my finger on it. I realize the pages are simple, but I would still like comments on the layout that is there and additional tips on how I can increase/begin the 'wow' factor. Also, I've been trying to make my site as SEO friendly as possible and any tips on that would be appreciated.

I like the overall look and feel of your site. However, I would remove the small black bar on the top of your page. There's too much white space next to your logo, at least that's the feeling I get when I visited your site for the first time.

You did a rather good job on this design. It's most definetly one of the "better" real-estate websites out there. The only two things I would suggest is sprucing up the logo a bit, as well as creating an 'Image Text' for the header on the pages (ex: on the About Us page, it simply reads 'About Us' in bold text. Perhaps you could create an image with a nice font [that matches of course] and place a line underneath that).
Another thing I just noticed, was the 'For sale' sign on the home page. It looks to me as if you took an image and added that in. If that is the case, I'd suggest sprucing the sign up a bit. Possibly ad a wood effect, and just make it more realistic (you know there aren't pure white real-estate signs)!
Other than those couple of things, I think it looks great! Wonderful work.
very nice and CLEAN design. The only thing I would remove is the red bar with pictures at the bottom or at least change the red to an Ivory ish colour to make it look more elegant. ( I know that red is for sales activity, but I prefer the ivory colour).
MENU: the menu looks nice until you roll over it, the drop downs look a bit boring and it would be nice if they matches the original image. Also when you roll over the menu they change size
4 BOXES: the 4 boxes are a nice touch but the 'find out more' font and color are too 'matter of fact' and need to be changed to a bit softer color and not such an industrial font. The underlined links don't match the non underlined boxes, it looks a bit uneven that way also
FOOTBALLS: the super liquidation sale section I Think cheapens the page a bit. Gives it the "backyard auto auction" feel I would choose something with a softer tone and lose the footballs.
BOTTOM RED: The section I think could use some flash, nothing fancy just a rolling image section and tone down the red a bit
