The company hud homes department is a scam! After paying roughly $200 in attempt to increase my presence in the South Florida real estate market, they wouldnt respond to my emails or call!

I was supposed to get REO training material...at least 2 listings every 45 days...and a few buyer leads per month as apart of their package. AFTER I PAID, I COULDNT EVEN GET THEM ON THE PHONE! They sent me a total of 5 buyer leads, EXCEPT 3 OF THEM WERE FOR BUYERS INTERESTED IN NEW YORK.

DONT TRUST MARK AVERETTE. PROOF OF EMAILS ATTACHED!

Reason of review: Problem with delivery.

Monetary Loss: $200.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

Thanks for the info. I won't be following up with them, but I must say they are all scammers until you can convert a lead, but I'd rather produce my own leads.

Below is the email that I received today from HUD Homes. I Googled it first as usual and it looks like a Scam to me based upon the Comments listed below.

I just wanted to share my email in case anybody else gets an email like this. It looks like they directly went onto the Berkshire Hathaway website and clicked on my Agent Profile to send me an Agent Inquiry to want to work with me. Don't fall for this scam where it sounds like you get no valid leads, representatives who don't answer calls or emails and where it sounds like you will have a very difficult time canceling after you sign up. To john.gordon@foxroach.com Message body You have received a request from http://www.berkshirehathawayhs.com/john-gordon-jr-real-estate-agent.

The customers contact information is shown below. * First Name: Nicole * Last Name: Smith * Email address: nicole@homepropertiessolution.com * Daytime Phone (with area code): 2404374883 Inquiry Message: My name is Nicole, and I'm looking for an agent in your local area to pair up with a lender and work with home buyers looking to purchase. We are only looking for One agent and One lender per county. We do not put any agents in competition with each other, or split our buyers between companies.

Because we only need one agent for the county, we fill the area on a first come, first serve basis.

If you are interested in working with our buyers, please contact me directly at your earliest convenience to hear about the opportunity. Thank you, Nicole Smith Property Solutions National Account Manager HUD Homes Dept 240-437-4883

I think I've been with them before and didn't have a problem.

I appreciate this. Especially since we get companies like this all the time calling wanting us to work with them and then pay them to give us trash leads.

I had read some of the reviews found here and I decided to at least try this program out for a Month for $195.00. I am so glad I did.

Out of the 11 leads I received I had already signed 1 under contract and I have another set appointment with 1 to list their home. I have tried other programs before that haven't worked out the way I wanted it to but so far I am happy.

Lead generation is hard to convert for any Realtor - no one has a 100% success rate but this program is month to month and not a long term contract like other programs. So in the future if I haven't had success I can always cancel.

They just tried this scam on me I am so glad we have Google. It's always a good rule of thumb is it sounds too good to be true it usually is.

Unsure! All lead generators utilize the info they're given.

Plenty of disconnected numbers, people not interested, others not qualified or have unrealistic expectations, but if just one becomes a sale, then it may be worth it. Just saying....

For the person that posted that it's like Zillow, I'd take Zillow over HudHomes any day. No ROI and I had clients state they had no idea how I got their info.

Darlene Gopalan advised the prospect would be pre-qualified prior but not the case. I would absolutely advise newer agents to pass.

Just received that same email from Ms. Taylor. Most of these promised systems do not work!

I just got the same email from a new name: Kristen Taylor.

They use a phone system so you'll never actually hear the voice of the person they are impersonating. I'm confident all these people don't exist, someone is just sending out emails en masse and hoping to get a response.

Don't sign up!

This is still going on. Be wary of Liz Queen. I'm based on NYC Metro.
