Yes, I said it sneaky realtor! I don't mean sneaky in a bad way, more like making sure that you aren't wasting time. In this day and age of social networking and readily available information, it helps to put the internet to good use. A bit confused? Well, let me explain what I mean. Many times I will receive email from prospective buyers through various lead generation methods that I have employed. I have a habit of scanning the person's email through the various social networking sites to see who this person is. Myspace offers much more information (usually) than facebook, but you can type in the email address with both sites and find out a little more about the person. It satisfies my curiosity and (usually) gives me a face to go with a name.
If the person can't be found in either site you can try Zabasearch.com. This could very well give you an address for the lead.
Try it next time you get an internet lead. You might be able to tell if that email is a big waste of time...
