NONE of them 'work' unless you have defined the purpose they are to fill AND you are supporting the infrastructue to make that website visiable.
How will you know if that website is successful?
6. Cleint management
7. Providing home search/resources
8. Community news/support
10. Your mother likes it
Evently you will realize the only measure is the number of appointments generated from the website.
Who do you want to have an appointment with? The answer to this question dictates what you should do and the care and feeding involved.
You will realize you need three websites.
1. Brown and Foster
2. All about Cathy
And a whole bunch of "Squeeze" pages.
The first three are essential to the latter.
Summary: If you don't know what needs to be done you will be looking for a website. If you have defined your busienss and strategy, you will be seeking ways to feed and nurture your squeeze pages.
Best of success to you,

Also, don't overlook Craigslist for a variety of ways to capture leads. You can outright offer your services, work with agents in your office looking for more exposure for their listings (always ask before posting!), or prospect FSBO leads.
I work for Wintrust Mortgage (based in Chicago), but we lend in all 50 states. We offer a program called Path2Buy, which converts rental clients into buyers. This program is free to you, and accomplishes this goal by taking rental clients, and educating them on the buying process. Do you have a great deal of rental clients/ do you know rental agents who dont have a liscense?
