We hae tried several different companies for lead sources.  We have done the pay per click deal and a few other sites hat you pay per lead.  We have found that the best sources out there are Agent Pronto, Estately, and Homelight all of which give you leads and you pay a referral fee on them, which is the best way to do business.  We are also firm believers in Zillow, Trulia and Yelp.  When you Googel Real Estate in a specific city, what pops up?  Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and a few paid for spots.  What we have learned is you need to be at the top of those sites.  So go out there get a ton of reviews and pay for a little it of advertising on each site but be very speciic to an area, so you will pull at the top of the list when someone is looking for an agent in that city.  Best of luck.

I have only used Agent Pronto and recommend them.  There is no upfront fees of any kind, just a 25% referral upon successful closing.  You will still have to compete with the lead as it is not exclusive, but if your are good you will get the listing/buyer and close the transaction.

I do NOT pay for any kind of leads.  I don't use any kind of 3rd party sight to generate leads. (Except for this one).  Get out and talk with people...civic groups, church, PTA Volunteer.  Tell everyone you know that you are an agent.  Then next week tell them again.  Tell them until they start telling you.  There is not magic bullet out there except hard work.

Online presence so the buyers, sellers come to you. The blogging, video, testimonials, local community involvement online all over those front page search indexes means the buyers, sellers can not help but bump into you. Grow your own leads, plant the seeds that last if you weed, feed, water them. Not coin operated leads, throwing money at tired old stale lists. The buyers and sellers don't want third party round them up but if the agent, broker is missing you give them no choice.

Most of these systems that sell leads are startups that quickly disappear from the marketplace

I'm considering signing up with a lead referral service to post buyer leads that contact my company. I've looked at Agent Pronto, the Referral Network and here, on the Referral Exchange.  My leads (mostly higher-end) are looking primarilly in NC from the Raleigh, Winston-Salem, Charlotte and Asheville areas.  It seems that the leads on the Referral Exchange are older leads.  Has anyone had experience using the Referral Exchange?  Thanks!!

Christine Richard you heard from few experts here. There are two ways to stay on top on Internet. Organic and paid! You have a choice. May be, mix and match?

Christine,

I really like what Andrew Mooers said.  The online leads have not panned out for several clients.  What works best is getting out in the community and meeting with people.  And definitely blogging...Wishing you a great weekend. A

I think I have the majority of the online stuff covered. If my name is googled, I show up on the majority of the first 3 pages aside from a realtor in Canada with the same name. Lol I'm just an antsy person and I like everything right now! Being super busy is such a rush!
