Question: How Accurate Are your Lists?
Answer: Very accurate.
Our lists are as accurate as can be, but can never be 100% accurate.
Although our lists are
updated as often as possible, there is no way that we can account
for Real Estate Agents changing e-mails, full mailboxes, Realtors using false
e-mails, mistyped e-mails, and the like. Therefore, we are confident
that the majority of the Agents, email
addresses, phone numbers, and mailing addresses are
correct, but of course, there will be
a minority (0-5% on average) of bounced emails.
Question: Can I use the Realtor Address List for Direct Mail Marketing?
These real estate agent mailing addresses are obtained through public
records and can be used to communicate with agents legally.
Question: Can I use a Real Estate Agent Email List Legally?
Answer: Yes. Of
course! There is no regulation in the law about using public record
e-mail addresses to conduct legitimate business marketing.
Question: Can I use the Real Estate Agent Email List with purchased software like Constant Contact?
Answer: The short answer is no.
Companies like Constant Contact do not allow the use of purchased email
lists, and only allow e-mails to be sent
to "opted-in" customers of your business, i.e. customers that have
specifically asked your company for solicitous e-mails about your
specific products and services
and companies like Constant Contact are incredibly strict on this
This is because you are paying to use the server of Constant
Contact to send out e-mails and when people mark them as spam (because a
great majority, even of "opted-in"
customers, always do), their servers run the risk of being
black-listed. This is also due to the nature of their very business,
sending out e-mails for businesses. Because
of the incredibly large number of clients using their service and
sending out e-mails at all times, they have to be very careful to not
let their servers get black-listed.
It is important to note, however, that although this service
does not allow you to use these e-mails, they are collected from sources
of public record and can legally
be used to send out marketing information for your product or
service, and these potential customers can be solicited to opt-in to receiving e-mails from you.
This means that any customers you collect through use of this
list, you will then be able to use with a service like Constant Contact.
To insure the best sending practices, follow some of these guidelines to get your e-mails to Agents:
- Clear, simple content that lets customers know the exact nature of your business
- A nice balance of text and pictures in a clean, uniform layout
- Do not use spam "buzz words" - i.e. don't market male enhancement products to the Real Estate Market, etc.
- Make sure you are sending information to Agents that Agents would be interested in.
- Have a contact person, business name, phone number, and address of your business included in every e-mail.
Question: How do you verify your email addresses?
Answer: We update our email list
quarterly with a completely fresh, 100% combed through list of Agent
e-mail addresses, Agent phone numbers, Agent
business addresses, and Agent mailing addresses, and update the
list with records of bounced e-mails monthly. Because our lists are so
large, it may seem that you receive
alot of bounced e-mail addresses after an initial email blast, but
that is not necessarily the case. Only a small percentage of emails
have a chance of being bad email addresses.
- Quarterly fresh updates
- Monthly bounced email address removal
- State by state public records match and verification
- Quarterly removal of new duplicates
