My top three sources for leads this year are referrals, internet leads and open houses. I also work a few other sources, but consistency is the key to success in lead generation. Beware though, everyone is tryong to sell agents all kinds of things.

Our best source for leads is, and always has been referrals. Although, we've had a few open house leads and internet advertising leads.

For a new agent who doesnt have that many referrals yet, mine would be open houses and on line sites

I agree - referrals are the number one source of leads for me, as well!

Referrals are the best source for me. If your client had a great experience dealing with you he/she will tell their friends about it. Take care of your clients.

John,

While leads from advertising, marketing and social media have risen in the past year, my best source continues to be past clients and my sphere of influence.

Thanks for posing this question. It's been interesting to read all the feedback.

All the best!

I find with each passing year in Real Estate that referrals are becoming a bigger source of my leads followed closely by my website which through a lot of hard work has moved steadily up the Google ranks.

I agree with Lori, referrals are the best source. Take care of the people you work with and they will take care of you.

On-line leads (through various on-line resources including social media) are definitely up this year. However, referrals continue to be the best source of leads.

Craig's List, Trulia & blogs for online leads. Referals from my sphere is still the leader though.

corporate relo is up this year, and word-of-mouth is strong...if you made it through the last 7-8 years with a business intact. trulia.com has grown significantly as a source of leads, where the top spot was typically realtor.com.
