I havent generated any leads off trulia but i do not do it for the leads, I do it for my website exposure. You can get leads off of here if you have the listings but as far as meeting potential clients in blogs has proven to not be so effective. Most of the people on here asking questions are already working with an agent. the great thing about trulia and site like it is the exposure my name get and my website, if you type anything about my website or my name in google, i have tons of information and blogs all out there pointing to me and my website. Hope this information was helpful.

I'm not familiar with the Allied course but there is lots of information to study to become an agent. Home studies are difficult and you may be better off with an adult college course which will have the benefit of open dialog with a Real Estate professional. There isn't much for opportunities as a Trainee since there is an incredible amount of liability that a sponsoring Realtor would have.
Once you've completed your required courses (which are set to increase once again soon) and scheduled for the state test, I would highly recommend taking a two day crash course the weekend prior to testing. One of the best in the area is called RET or Real Estate Trainers based out of Santa Ana (however with multiple training offices such as Culver City).
Best of luck! I think you're heading into the right industry at a good time!... more
