YES! I have gotten at least 3 leads in the last 3-4 months from Craigslist. I'll give you one of my tips...:) --> My most recent, I actually just went ahead and contacted someone that posted in the real estate wanted section. The post seemed to match the clients I work with a lot, so I sent her an email. I was not pushy at all (very friendly), but stated that I saw they were looking for a home to buy in an area I am familiar with and I would be happy to help them. I let them know they can search on my site without any commitment and if they saw anything that interested them, I was more than happy to help even if it was just to answer questions.

I received a reply about an hour later and long story short, we just completed the home inspection and WDO inspection this morning. ($196K offer accepted last week).

I always put my listings there, I have over the last couple of weeks done some ads to push traffic to my site - has worked, but no new clients yet.

Yes I have had success on Craigslist among other free sites to advertise on. Starting out in the
business is hard work and takes money to advertise. This is how I started and worked my way up.
Good Luck and Success to your Business.

I have put my less expensive listings on there advertising open houses. I believe I have gotten attendees, but not a sale.
