LeadRouter & Outgoing Bonus Program Success Story: “The client was originally a Lead Router referral. While showing him houses in the area, we discovered he had not listed his home. We offered to have an experienced agent from Coldwell Banker contact them about marketing their home. He was pleased with the service we were providing and asked us to have a local agent near his home contact him.
