“I am thrilled to be announced as the 2009 HomeGain National Top Performer.  This is a great award that I have worked hard at earning.  I have been fortunate to win this award the last five years. HomeGain is a great tool that I use to convert high quality internet leads.  HomeGain allows me to work in other areas of my business while they generate legitimate buyer and seller leads.  HomeGain is a company that really cares about their agents.  They offer training and support unlike other lead generation companies.  They have a vested interest in my success.  For any agent that isn’t currently using this company, sign up now.”

Midwest Honorable Mentions

“What’s 100% of nothing?”  That’s what we asked other Realtors in our office who said, “You’re crazy to pay referral fees. Fact: We have made more money because of HomeGain referrals than any other source of business. The clients we respond to are more serious and more knowledgeable than any others and HomeGain provides them with the assurance they are not alone in the process, but have an ally.  Sure, we have to work hard sometimes to respond to our leads quickly, while addressing their needs, but HomeGain makes sure we get a shot at a client we would, otherwise, never have known existed. Want to dramatically increase your business?  HomeGain.”

“I have been privileged to work with HomeGain over the course of the last 6 years to improve my business.  Originally I got involved with the program to help me prospect for new clients easier.  I have and still do telephone prospecting.  However, as a very busy agent even 6 years ago, I found my prospecting time to be almost zero in many instances, especially during the Spring and Summer.  HomeGain gets the best potential buyers and sellers in touch with me, and I don’t have to solicit them.  To me, this is terrific and is a tremendous timesaver and moneysaver!  The referral fee is peanuts compared to what HomeGain can do to build an agent’s business.  I have fun with HomeGain.  Like the real estate business, I find it an exciting challenge! HomeGain has been a wonderful addition to my business.”
