Realtors should NEVER recommend a home inspector. There is a huge potential conflict of interest.
Yes, still meet with Realtors in your service area, but you also need to establish a very good website, so that buyers, who will be making the final choice, are informed about your services and can see sample reports, etc. Most buyers come here from out of town, so they need to be able to find you online. The advice that someone gave you about blogging is sound. Blog about a recent inspection, or about timely topics in the news that affect homeowners, such as age of systems.
I provide a list of inspectors to my clients but always make sure it is crystal clear that I am not making a recommendation. Your goal should be to get on as many Realtor lists as possible and then make sure buyers will select you.
