Any real estate agent who is active in the industry no doubt gets solicited over the phone by all sorts of companies who say they can help them get more business. The solid, reputable, lead generation companies, like Estately.com, Movoto.com and AgentMachine.com, will honor a referral fee to be paid at the settlement table. These companies have built their business on a solid relationship of trust, whereas the shady companies ALWAYS want to be paid up front, even before you get the contact information for a lead.
I have quickly figured out, that if you are any good at what you do, then you have absolutely no need for whatever these shady companies are trying to sell to help you get more business. These people are scammers who prey on rookie or part-time real estate agents who are hungry for business.
My real estate license has been active for a couple of years, and I have have put together a list of phone numbers which I know to ignore when they call me.
Here is the best part: I created a google contact in my android phone named “DO NOT ANSWER”. I add all of these phone numbers under this contact. Whenever I add a new number to the contact, I update the contact in the android menu by selecting “More > Add to Blacklist”. I use gmail for all of my email communication, and sync the contacts between my gmail and my android phone. Thus, I can edit the “DO NOT ANSWER” contact from either my phone, or my gmail contact. Check out my post “make Google Voice ring your phone ONLY when people in My Contacts call” with other good ideas to make Google Voice work efficiently for you. Pretty nifty, eh?
Whenever those phone numbers call again, my phone doesn’t even ring; it goes straight to voice mail.
Below is my list… message me, or comment below to add phone numbers to add to this list!
