Doens't sound legitimate to me... you and probably hundreds of other agents are getting these leads.. I would dump them.

Oh God, that just gave me a freaking headache. It's a lot like life. Something that easy has no value. Do a quick cursory scan; anything that looks juicy refer out and discontinue the hell out of that service. Then, get your charming butt out there and show people what you know, which is the best way to get business.

First of all, I would never do that.  My advice to anyone who did would be:
Work a few of them to get a sense of their quality, then make a decision on whether it is worth the time to continue working them and how.    What is the highest and best use of time?

Something is wrong with this picture. Maybe you and 50 other subscribers have the same leads and it is first come first serve for these unqualified leads. Good luck. Have you rolled the dice in Vegas?

What do you think in your experienced head is the true lead percentage? 1 out of 20? 

I would take 2 groups for me & pass out the rest. You said you were mentoring someone - this would keep a noob busy for at least a couple of weeks calling day & night. Maybe use of Slydial would also be helpful.

I would start calling to see what kind of leads they are. Then I would decide what to do next, which would likely involve a call day with the agents in my company. I would also stick them all in my database to receive regular emails and property from me. The latter can be done by an assistant or if you don't have one hire someone for the project. Probably a lot of them are bad leads but there could be a few diamonds in the rough. Good luck! -Kasey

If it's cheap enough to test, run a test. Put them on drip campaign. Anyone who responds could be considered a viable lead. If you get a 10X return, consider keeping it.

I would be pretty suspicious of that many leads that fast. Who else is getting them? I guess you could test a few just to see. Maybe you know a new agent or 2 who likes to make calls.
