I'd really like to know which "Pay for Referral" services AR Members have found to be valuable and worth the cost and which services are Shams and Rip-offs!
I recently joined Reply.com ... a referral service that gathers leads and sends them out to agents in the local areas for a fee. It sounded wonderful ... the theory is. Yet, what I have found is that the leads are gathered from a huge variety of sites and many of them aren't really viable real estate leads.
One example ... I received a referral from Reply that was a friend of mine and a local agent who works for another office. I don't think she will buy or sell from me so, of course, I declined the lead. Two leads were homes already listed; one was a man who logged into a site promising they would buy his home. He got mad at me because he thought he would be contacted by a home buyer - not an agent.
So ... any tips or ideas? Who have you used and what has been successful for you?
