  • Sandra Crews, RE/MAX Allegiance, Virginia – $70,479

“I have been working with HomeGain for close to ten years and had an excellent experience in both good and slow markets. The Buyer & Seller leads I’ve been receiving were very good quality. Customers benefit from using the HomeGain system that allows them to compare real estate professionals, their level of expertise and marketing plans. Agents benefit from using a three step easy process to submit their proposals and follow up with prospects. HomeGain gets my name out and is the core of my business. With the help of HomeGain I established many strong relationships with clients throughout these years and am very happy with their customer service.”

  • Sheila Gillette, Long & Foster Realtors, Virginia
  • Virginia Cheezum, RE/MAX Allegiance, Virginia – $41,813

“HomeGain has been an integral part of my business for close to ten years. It has been a wonderful experience every step of the way. The leads are typically excellent, and many of my stronger relationships have come from HomeGain buyers and sellers. The clients like being able to compare agents, their philosophies, their sales history, areas of expertise, and find someone that is likely a good match.

The professionals that bring HomeGain to us, also, are wonderful to work with. They have made their service turn-key, and continuously amaze me with new tools and resources for the agents.

As our customers turn more and more to the internet to shop for homes and looking for agents, HomeGain is in a league all its own. I have tried many of the other resources agents have, and have dropped them all. HomeGain is the leader, and I would not dream of doing business without them.”

“As a result from individualized help and tools utilized from HomeGain and AgentEvaluator, I was able to profit from one of the best Real Estate years in my 16 year career. HomeGain is one of the most respected and honorable web generated lead programs that I have worked with. I trust their professionalism and they are always available to answer questions or help with my needs. They continue to monitor and update their programs to fit the fast pace and ever changing Real Estate market. Through these leads and closed transactions in 2010, I have met many life long clients and friends that will continue to generate additional business for me.

Thank you HomeGain for being part of my Real Estate family.”

  • Philip and Carol Kyburz, Michigan – $36,485
  • Cindy Banks, RE/MAX, Illinois

South Region Top Performer:

Scott Myers

Century 21 Scott Myers Realtors, Texas

$55,970 in gross closed commissions

“Year after year, the highest quality leads that we get are from HomeGain’s AgentEvaluator program, and we receive leads from four other major lead generators. When a prospect contacts us after they read our proposal, it almost always leads to a sale or a listing.

Some of my favorite things about AgentEvaluator are that the prospect has to contact us. All the other lead programs we are in require that we contact the customer, and this becomes a chasing down the customer game which is time consuming. HomeGain is the only lead service we use that sends listing referrals. All the other lead generating systems are 99.9% buyers. We much prefer listing referrals to buyer referrals, but we love them all. The referral fees are reasonable and consistent with the service provided. Some of the other lead services are too high in their fees considering what they do to earn them.”

South Region Honorable Mentions

  • Barbara Tidwell, Keller Williams Realty, Texas – $52,437
  • Danielle Boling, Network Real Estate Partners, Texas – $50, 163

“I signed up to use HomeGain several years ago to give my business another avenue to produce clients. I took the extra time to write and edit my proposals to ensure they were professional and gave the client a brief idea of who I was, and the Real Estate Services I provided. I have learned over the years how important it is to respond as quickly as possible and to personalize your proposal to the client.

HomeGain has been very good to me with extremely good and promising leads. They give you the guidance to help you get started and the tools to grow your business. In 2010 I decided to add more zip codes than I had in previous years, with the result being a record year both with my Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty in Jacksonville, Fl. as well as with HomeGain. I can’t thank them enough for all the wonderful leads and life time clients! Thank You, HomeGain!”

  • Andrew Duncan, Keller Williams Realty, Florida – 7 closed transactions

“HomeGain has been an integral part of our internet lead generation consistently delivering us high quality buyer and seller leads and a communication portal that allows us to convey our value proposition.

John & Melody Hatch

Keller Williams Realty, Oregon

“I think HomeGain is a great tool for many people. Clients, who did not have good existing relationships with Realtors, have commented to me that it was a great system for them to select from a range of Realtors who are interested in helping them and to evaluate their production and profiles before even contacting them. This saved them time and helped them make a good hiring decision.”

  • Nancy Watkins, Utah Homes & Land Inc., Utah – 9 closed transactions

“When I got back into real estate I knew I needed to get a referral base as I didn’t have a sphere of influence. Through searching the Internet I found HomeGain and boy am I glad I did. I’ve been using the AgentEvaluator product now for over six years and it has done wonders for my business. You’re not going to convert every lead but you’ll find through persistence you’ll supplement your leads and have a great stream of business with a nominal initial cost. I also supplement with the BuyerLink and AgentView products. I’m a HomeGain client for life!”

  • Andy McKay, McKay & Associates Real Estate, Utah – 9 closed transactions

“HomeGain’s AgentEvaluator has been a fantastic source of new client introductions for me in 2010 and for many years prior to that! I feel like I get to interface with people who are actually looking for the expertise of a agent instead of the looky lou’s and unmotivated sellers that are so prevalent today.”
