It is important for an agent to stay engaged with the market, and this is a great forum.
There is a lot of competition for the real estate consumer's attention online. Trulia does get a lot of traffic.
If I get a lead, I follow up on it.
As far as your question regarding follow up, I follow up with any leads I get no matter where they are from.
Trulia is one piece in a comprehensive approach toward marketing properties. The statistics I see related to consumers viewing my listings at Trulia are significant. I won't go so far as to say that because I list my properties at Trulia I am selling them more quickly. But I will say that Trulia enhances the visibility of both me and my listings to a savvy element of the consuming public. As a result both I and my listings are syndicated to a vaster pool of online homeseekers (roughly 8 of 10 home seekers initiate their searches online). I am glad to have Trulia as an additional option to realtor.com, tommccarey.com, elegantchicagohomes.com, therealestateloungechicago.com, atproperties.com, tribune.com, etc.
Best of luck.
