I am a Broker in Las Vegas, NV and I have only been on trulia for a couple of weeks. I have been pleased with the number of leads that I have received thus far. I do know that the number of leads are determined by how much competition you have in your listed areas that are also subscribed to Trulia and what plan that you have. The Elite gets the most and also Brokers cycle through more often. So as at least a Deluxe subscriber, you must have a lot of competition or not very many people searching in your areas. Hopefully it gets better soon. I wish you the best.
Contact your customer service person and ask them to check your profile. Then ask them what YOU need to do be noticed. Good luck. Several of my settlements this year came from leads I received from Trulia.

If Phil's solution doesn't work, then maybe try the opposite. Try burying your laptop upside down next to a St. Joseph statue. Leads will be redundant. Good Luck
p.s. I thought I answered this question some time ago. Maybe the post disappeared into trulia la la land, where all you can hear is the distant echo of rational voices members-- the very faint sound of "Wait to buy, prices are declining".
I noticed you only have 1 location filled out on your profile. You can and should have all 20 of your top primary farm areas entered on your profile.
This helps in 2 ways:
1. It helps you get found in our Find-a-Pro directory by consumers
2. As a Trulia Pro, it will place you in those 20 geographic locations via the ne Quick Connect module which we built into Trulia Pro.
Together, this will hopefully help you start to receive some email inquiries from serious home buyers, sellers and renters in the local areas that matter to you most.
In fact, I suggest everyone reading this thread go and check to see if you all have your 20 locations that you work in filled out......some may have more, some less - either way, don't just have 1 location filled in. Your missing opportunities to connect w/ consumers.
Have a a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

It is awful hard to get customers to come to you these days. Getting out and talking, telephoning and writing directly to prospects appears to be the best way. Ads in newspapers and online are better at reinforcing your reputation as an active agent than in building it. As others have said, answering questions here is a good option because it lets you show expertise to a large number of potential clients.
