They hang around Trulia, and answer a lot of questions! :)

If that to everyone you come in contact with on a daily basis! I don't mean you should be annoying, constantly soliciting people...... but I DO mean you should be friendly, say hello, and let them know (in a subtle way) that you're in the business (my first listing was with the cashier at the grocery store - just by being frieindly and engaging in conversation)........if that doesn't work..then come out, and ask for their business! addition....make sure to stay in touch with past clients. Get out there and be active in clubs or organizations that interest you.......

Good luck!

It's all about the networking - and there are many different avenues, from online to offline.

Prospecting and marketing over and over. The wider your sphere you can build the wider the brand.

They build their brand over a period of years. They network. And then they network some more. And before they quit for the day, they networks some more. Eventually, the local community and many people from out of state come to you to ask questions about real estate. If that conversation goes well (and many times it does), those prospects eventually become clients.

Funny writing a reply to myself. Maybe someone else will read this, too.

I like mailers. They have been more successful.

You need to see their work. If they have listings, How many? If the listings they show on their website is theirs or someone else's. You need to get a realtor that has experience BUYING AND SELLING HOUSES not cooking pyes. If you want to buy good, get the expertise.

Debbie is right. Just letting people know you are in real estate can start up conversations with anyone you come in contact with. We used to joke that you can't be successful if you are a "secret agent".

That other answer is good. Are you selling or getting started?
Just keep on doing something to touch people.
