I haven't.  I'm lucky enough to have gotten into the business back in the day when they taught us how to prospect for business.  I've never paid a lead generation site.

There's so many sub grade lead gen sites that promise you the world.  I haven't heard of this one. If I did choose one I'd probably go with a company who's widely recognized for it- I am assuming that with volume your odds of a hit go up!

Sorry, never heard of them.  I looked them up and they're about a 10 minute drive from me.  Located where Move.com (Realtor.com) is headquartered.  My guess is that they are very tightly related to them (based solely on their location and nothing else).

My general feeling on buying leads is "don't do it".  Those leads are often sold to multiple people and not very "hot to trot" to begin with.  If you want to have a 500 person database that you're drip emailing to hoping that they work with you (and aren't annoyed at the emails), buying leads is the quickest way.  Blogging and general marketing BY YOU FOR YOU will lead to "hot to trot" leads that will do something, at least in my experience.
