Simply put, the secret to success in real estate starts with lead generation—whether you’re new to the industry or a seasoned pro. Having a pipeline of prospective customers serves as the catalyst for your business growth over the long term, and without it your bottom line will suffer.

The key is to have a solid marketing plan that incorporates multiple strategies to build your book, turn leads into prospects, convert prospects into clients, and find yourself with a profitable transaction in the end.
