Genesis is best WP for real estate - in MHO.  Updating to mobile-friendly/responsive is imperative though.

I had a real challenge choosing. Many are so editable that they don't look like the sample themes.

There really isn't a best. I and I know some website builders that have used themes from http://www.solostream.com/wordpress-themes/ and they have been dependable and customers like them. I also use studiopress, ithemes, and thrive is also good. depending on how old the website is that you want to update, it might take more than just changing themes. Make sure it's mobile responsive.

There are so many great ones now so that's hard to pin down. I would shuffle thru a few agent themes & see what you would like the site to look like or do. Newer themes don't look so boxy so it's a good idea to update every 3 years I think.

I use Quest and am very happy with it.  I paid for the professional version to get an image slider and the ability to have page templates (super important for listing showcase pages).

I've used Genesis with very good results - comes in two parts and the top layer has many different theme options

Well worth the price!

I've also used the twenty-sixteen/fifteen etc with good results as well although I have to customize the CSS, but it's fairly easy to do if you have knack
