I tried Landvoice years ago. At the time I thought they were on the pricey side for the leads received (considering they are not exclusive) and the information provided was not complete.
I would consider revisiting if you're interested in sharing costs? Call me direct 773-981-2005.
I just singed up for the mojo triple line power dialer system, complete with FSBO and Expired data that feeds directly into the system, does all the calling for you, leaves your pre recorded voicemail to the ones that don't pick up, tracks your prospecting efforts, and automatically updates the info daily. It's the best out there that I've experienced. Go to http://www.mojosells.com for more info. Feel free to contact me as well.
There is definitely gold in cold calling, but as a full time real estate agent, you can't sit there and cold call for 8 hours a day 5 days a week. If you have the marketing dollars, I would highly suggest outsourcing your cold calls to a technologically capable company. Yet another helpful link from Inman:
"We do understand the tutorial we currently have for your MLS is out of date and are in the processing of trying to update those when we can. The tutorials on our site are general tutorials since we do not have direct access."
good phone numbers with correct contact information. FSBO's and Expireds- This lasted about 2-3 months . Now, I am finding ( And I don't fault Landvoice } that I am receiving less and less information
on a daily basis. I can't say that this is because there are less leads available or if
more and more realtors in my area are using the service and Landvoice realizes that it doesn't
have enough to go around. At any rate I am considering dropping the service and looking else
where for lead generation as I feel the money might be spent better elsewhere.
A couple of top producers in my office use this programs and they work great for them. I have not yet to use RedEx but that is the next addition to my programs for real estate.
All the best,

I received about 83 phone numbers with about 90% of them being good numbers.
Out of that I was able to get about 6 good appointments. I have not gotten any
listings as of yet but I have gotten some good referral info. The problems that
I have run into is that sometimes the addresses are cross streets which the
MLS will not pull up.( just to view } I usually go to zillow and am able to find the property or simply
call the phone and ask for the actual address.
The other issue is that you burn through 83 phone numbers fairly quickly.
Once you have used up the zip codes closest to you. It does not make since
to waste your time or gas calling outside your marketing area and the new FSBO"s
that come are not enough to keep you busy. Landvoice tries to get you to commit
to a package deal of FSBO"S and Expireds for the year but if you do the math , the
FSBO's are only valuable in the beginning and then maybe 3 months down the road.
I am going to try only expireds next to test that side out.
Sales training and support are available and they are really good at getting you lists with up to 90% efficiency with contact numbers attached.
I have used Landvoice FSBO service for several years and it is a very reliable source. They e-mail you the newest fsbos daily, some have addresses , all have asking prices & phone numbers and indicate if they are on the DNC list. As for expireds I just follow up on MLS on my own, rather than wait for a list from a service. No matter which service you decide to use follow up is key to listing success.
I have used RedX for 3 years and the list is very strong in my market. I understand that the streghten depends on how well the software integrates with your local MLS system. If you like to knock doors then this software would be an investment well spent. I personally do not like that business model and have found that so many brokers are marketing expired listings that the old drip campaign is no longer effective. All the best.
I can easily pull expired listings from my MLS source (MRED), however, it only shows "Owner of Record" so I have no idea what the owner's name is or their phone number.
Rather than paying an assistant $10/hr to research and build a database, one of these sources for $100/month would be well worth the investment. After researching, I'm starting to see that their info is not too reliable though..
