Yes I have Debbie and yes it brought a lot of attention and new folks my way. Quoted in CRS a few times and NAR chose me as one of the Master of Real Estate in 2010. They came and made a video of me and followed me around for 2 days.  It was a blast!  Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland was also chosen as a Master of Real Estate.

Not for real estate LOL, but I was in Wall Street Journal, Money Magazine, Sell This House and Property Brothers (or at least our flooring was).  This stuff generally doesn't bring direct business, but it can build credibility (and sometimes links).  Then, it's more how you use it.  It indirectly helped me sell some more jobs and info is on the website and builds credibility which leads to more appts.
