Ok, so I recieved the following email yesterday:
This is Gabe Keogan, Senior Marketing Consultant with R.E.P.
I'm contacting you because I found you on NAR and I market for real estate agents nationwide. I'm going to be moving into your area this month and I need 2 agents who can handle a high volume of new prospective clients and work them till close.
We are an exclusive marketing company, and we only work with 2 agents or brokers per area.
If you would like to be considered for representation, please answer the following questions:
1. Are you a full time agent?
2. How many clients can you handle on a monthly basis?
3. What distinguishes you as quality agent/broker?
I will follow up with you after I've had a chance to review your responses. Be sure to include your contact information, best time to call and one alternative number to reach you at.

So, I emailed this guy back and gave him my information and he called me back. So here is the catch:
This is a company that promotes Real Estate Marketing and what they do is provide you with a service to help boost your internet marketing strategies. They will route people to your website for a flat fee of $400-1100 instead of a pay per click depending on how much traffic you want per month. They also only contract with 2 other agents in your general area. They will build you 2 websites and maintain them both for $29 per month but an intitial charge of $1000. Now the cool thing is they do not make you sign a yearly contract, rather this is a monthly service that you can cancel at anytime without penalty.
So I guess what I need from you guys is an opinion. What do you think about the information that I recieved. Should I entertain the idea and get some more information or do you think that this is just a scam that in the end I will be kicking myself and wondering why I ever even tried it out.
I look forward to hearing all of your opinions.
