I have no knowledge of this company but in response to your question checked online reviews.  Could not find any good reviews but a few negative reports.

I think you will find the general consensus here on ActiveRain is to NEVER buy leads but, instead, build a business to generate your own leads.  This is the only way to guarantee a return on your investment of time and money.

I've actually been watching these guys for awhile and finally pulled the trigger and purchased a territory! I love the direction they're taking with smart data! The system, the team and the training have been absolutely excellent! Yes it's an investment, but like they say, you gotta spend money to make money. Its not a magic bullet, but it's got potential :-) Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

I have had a great experience. I was one of the original users, and they have continued to improve over the years. Granted the system is not for everyone. I think the negative reviews on any lead gen service is partially due to the agents not really using the tools or following up on leads. offrs provide all data on all homeowners and scores them with high accuracy (even in areas that I work in luxury).  I am not sure how agents can complain it doesn't work, when the fact is - they tell you who is most likely to list and they get it spot on.

If you do decide to invest, make sure you have a solid lead gen follow up program.

Hello all,

I work for offrs.com.  I was surprised to see that the majority of posters here have never heard of us and have no experience with our platform as we work with over 6,000 realtors across the country.  We don't position ourselves as a silver bullet, we realize that listings take work and for that reason we do a lot of the heavy lifting to identify sellers so you can spend your time doing what you do best, building relationships.  Please give us a chance before comparing us to any other company that claims to get you leads. 

 

I'd like to make myself available to anyone who would like to learn about our process and how we generate listing leads.  I'll be subscribing to this post but also you can email me directly at elliot@offrs.com

 

If you'd like to take a look at our website here is a link: offrs.com

Don't buy your leads, Robin Auwerda - work for them and watch your business grow! Think how agents built their real estate businesses 20 years ago - they didn't buy leads, they worked for them!  It's the easiest and smartest way to grow your business.

Good luck, Robin!

CM Group Realty - Dallas, TX

I received no leads during the first 3 months, and very few after that. I posted a review of my experience only to be contacted by Rich Swier, one of the owners, and was offered free data if I removed my review. I accepted his offer and removed my review. Please see my recent conversation with Rich below. . . 

Hi Rich,

Territory 48085031613 is no longer active on my account and was supposed to remain active until December 17. I have been receiving leads from territories that are nearly an hour north of my target areas. I have received one verified lead within my territory since August 12th and they expressed to me that multiple agents have called them regarding the Facebook survey they completed. I would not be surprised if my leads are being sent to other agents seeing as other agents verified leads have been sent to me. 

Is this the standard process for client retention? Sending leads from random territories to agents that have not found success with the program? 

Carley,

I activated again, and changed to December.   Any lead outside your area would be an orphan lead.  Leads in your area when licensing exclusive are exclusive. You have access to the area but not an actively paying user.

We don't typically provide our service at no cost. I kept it open for you to access. Technically I shut off leads I believe a while ago, since it's completely based on the ad budget in your account (which is zero). So the leads you are getting are from a shared pool.

Rich,

The shared pool was never explained to me. The contract I signed was exclusive access to the data and leads in my territory. I do not care to share leads in territories outside of the ones I signed up for. The reason I agreed to remove my review was so that my territories would remain active for the “rest of the time” – I have had to reach out to you twice due to my territories not being active.

You may remove me from all unpaid services with Offrs. I do not wish to carry out my unpaid contracts and I am definitely going to reflect this, along with my entire experience with Offrs in a review as I do not want other agents to deal with the headaches I have had to endure during my experiences with your company.

Carley,

If you insist on posting a negative review of us due to these issues (that are un founded and only due to your misunderstanding of the product) - then I will do the same and post negative reviews of you as a customer, post proof of service of delivery of our product and these emails, and showcase you are not a good realtor. Thus saving your future customers from hiring you, since you are unable to understand how to convert leads.

Or - we can go our seperate ways and not damage each others reputations on the web

Rich,

My reviews have been completely honest and transparent, if you view that as negative, then maybe you should take a deeper look inside your company rather than deflecting back onto me, the customer. You have a "shared pool" of leads which means other agents are experiencing the same things as I am and your only way to rectify the situation is to throw us into a "shared pool" of leads. 

If you usually post negative reviews of customers that are dissatisfied with your product then go ahead, but please be aware that under Texas law If you proceed to post any negative review of me online as a realtor with no evidence to support that claim it would be considered slander and defamation

Carley,

I am amazed how your threaten me and my business, and disregard any attempt of mine to help you at no cost.  I will post more negative reviews than you can ever imaging about my experience with you as a customer. They will be legitimate and I will post our entire conversations, what I did you for, all the leads and screenshots. Nothing about it will be slander or defamation. And when people search your name, it will be #1 on Google.
