I have never used a lead service never paying for leads.  My time is too valuable to spend it chasing leads ... hunting leads. 

Organically grown websites work for me.  Past clients and referrals also play a role in my business.

Referrals from clients and open houses.  Some find success with cold calling, door-knocking and even playing golf(or any activity they may enjoy).  The options are many(and likely endless).  Good luck.

My website for new leads, our brokerage location for walk-ins, but the very best source of new leads is your old clients. What are you doing to maintain contact with them? Are you touching them at least once a month? Sending them newsletters with current market trends to show you know what is happening in your area?

I do not know anyone who has found a legit lead service that really works. Some lead services DO work but require more work on your end than the benefit they may provide. Chasing leads that are provided to multiple agents would not be considered "legit" IMHO. Your business runs you vs you running your business with that model. As others have stated the best lead service is yourself working your SOI. A legit tool that works to increase your effectiveness and reach is Listings to Leads.

What works for me will not work for you. That is why there is a gazillion lead service companies. Maybe if we knew more about your experience, position, goal and more important, what you are willing to do in your market, better responses could be made.

I use Zillow and pay them a referral fee if I close a lead.  Since starting with them within the last year I have closed 9 buyers, have 2 buyers under contract currently and received one seller listing.  So it's going pretty good.  Good Luck
