What's the best method of tracking down phone numbers for expired listings?

Asked by Joe Houghton, Minneapolis, MN Sat Apr 9, 2011

Other than the yellow pages and white pages does anyone have advice on tracking down phone numbers for home owners that are or were trying to sell their homes?

I obtain pretty good results by mailing them an informational packet and introduction letter. It also takes the pressure off and they can read at their own leisure and call me when the timing is good for them not for me.

You can also use spokeo this pulls homeowners information as well.

I would use http://www.dexknows.com and use their reverse directory option. However with the proliferation of cell phones, many folks no longer have land lines and cell phones won't show up in a reverse search.

There are services you can pay who may or may not have those numbers. I've never paid for them, so I don't know.

Just be mindful of the Do Not Call Registry when calling sellers. Unless you have a prior relationship, you can't solicit homeowners via the telephone who are on the do not call list. (I know of agents who are aware of the rule, but choose to ignore it. Don't be one of them).

Joseph,

The Redex is a great tool, or you can just simply use Facebook. Who is not on Facebook these days.


Best,
Antonio

Agents in my office are having good results with Mojo, but let me warn you in advance-- it's expensive.
Other Power dialer is Dolphin or Vulcan7.

Public records on mls copy and paste them to CALL POWER which is a DNC data base to make sure that not on the dnc. If there not smile and dial

I know we don't have a land line and most of my friends don't either. I would come up with a different routine if you want to solicit expired listings.

Finding numbers is not difficult. Finding numbers that are not on the Do Not Call list or attached to a FAX machine is more of a problem.
