"Ended up going the training route to learn the system myself." -Ben S
"Nice people, eager to help." -Ben S
This is important because when real estate agents decide to learn their own lead generation, its critical that you feel supported. Ben S. says Agent Leads were "nice people" and "eager to help."
With Agent Leads its noteworthy that you will get to interact with real humans for support and not just email. This is not the case with all real estate lead generation companies but several agent leads reviews have made it clear that is the case with Agent Leads. For example:
"When you sign up, you are assigned a Digital Advisor...so you have a point of contact." -Darcey G
Agent Leads also is a company that many agents are working with for the long haul, which says a lot as most agents change marketing companies every 6-8 months. For example:
"If you're looking for an awesome long term vendor, they are great." -Darcey G
One additional item the Review Authority discovered was that multiple agents reported that Agent Leads has industry expertise. They specialize in real estate exclusively and understand the ins and outs of the industry. As a result, they also appear to hold their agent customers to a high standard of success.

5. Agent Leads Review Breakdown #3: Glassdoor
More and more each day, studies are showing that the employees at a firm and their satisfaction will determine the experience that customers have. It's no secret that "company culture" is 10x more important than ever before. In establishing a total trust rating, we are one of the few rating scales that takes this into consideration. If a company has employees that don't enjoy the experience at the firm, it will reflect in the real estate agents experience with that company. Overall, you'll see that Agent Leads has a 4.9 out of 5 review rating with Glassdoor. This is in the top 1% of all companies worldwide.
The other neat thing about Agent Leads customer service and staff employees is that 100% would recommend to a friend and 100% approve of the CEO. Check out the rating here:
