From an agents point

that WOW effect.
have links to everything
easily obtained through any search
engine but it makes us feel great because we HAVE IT ALL. We also (In
cases) have a link to the local MLS in some form, so that people can
look and look some more at properties. In most cases we don’t
even know someone
was at our site. We somehow feel comforted that hundreds of people

look at property. Period;
some sites they can wander
through many listings and you
never know they were there. At some; before they can start looking,
sign up. The first thing they do is find a site that requires no sign

actually had an agent who
received 71 leads in the first
30 days!!! He didn’t think it was worth the $100.00 per month
