Run from this company!

This company is big on promises and excuses but can not be trusted! DO NOT BELIEVE THEIR SALE PITCH. They send you “leads” that are not leads because the phone numbers are not valid, the emails get returned as undeliverable, the property of interest linked to the lead is not even for sale. They are charging a high premium for lead generation and supposedly have a system of qualifying leads before sending them that is far superior than Zillow. They also promise refunds but then refuse to issue them. None of what they promise is true. Biggest mistake my partner and I made!

Grant Cooper @ Realpin / Zipbrands reachged out to me to propose a lead generation program for home Seller leads. Grant explained how he had beed with the company for years and what a wounderful and honorable comany it was with strong relationships with their real estate agent customers. Grant also propmised me that they stood behind their garauntee and If i did not receive the 5 leads as described I would get a full refund. After much promising and sales tactics I agreed to a 90 day program with an up-front payment of $1000 for 5 seller leads ($200 per lead) with home values at $100,000 +.

After nearing the end 0f my 90 days and having paid $1000 plus $49 per month and having received not 1 lead fitting the catagory that was spelled out in our agreement I notified Grant Cooper at Zipbrands / Realpin that I wanted to stop paying $49 per month and get my money back. At this point seeing that they do not necasarilly make good on their commitments I also started a dispute with my credit card company since that has to be done within 90 days of a charge.

Grant had more words of promised help to rectify the situation but never followed trhough. Zipbrands /Realpin is also battling the charge dispute and refusing to honor their money back garauntee. In addition they do not return calls or deal with the situation directly but operate like sleezy con people.

Laura Green, a sales rep for ZipBrands and RealPin, (of whom was terminated shortly after I signed up with as her client) had cold called me. After several objections and numerous additional phone calls to me, we started a conversation that eventually led to me purchasing a 4 lead package from her company at a total set up and lead cost of $778 or $194.50 per lead.

The reason for this hefty sticker price per lead (compared to Zillows $25-50 average cost per lead) is, per Laura and her company, these leads are not only screened through a rigorous screening process, but as a result of their superior (her words) qualifying and advertising techniques these leads are real, ready to sell, exclusing to me, and most agents land 1 listing out of 4 leads.

Moreover... if a lead turns out to have gone through the qualifying screen and then later says they are "just curious" or provide poor contact information... that lead will simply be replaced. No questions asked. They say they will verify the phone number, but a just curious or poor contact information is not something anyone is going to fake. They either get the lead and work it or get a false or terrible lead and it is replaced.

At this point, I received all 4 leads. Here are my results:

Lead 1 - Couldn't get off the phone quick enough. Was shocked to even get a call. He said he was just curious and not at all interested in selling any home.

(I requested a replacement)

Lead 2 - I spoke with the potential future Seller... he was a REAL ESTATE BROKER / TRAINER and did not require

(I requested a replacement)

Lead 3 - No response from numerous contacts via phone call, text, and email. I would send one touch for each method over the course of a few days and follow up in a week.

(I requested a replacement)

Lead 4 - Was already listed on the MLS before I received the lead!

So far these leads are not remotely close to the superiority as proclaimed. 4 terrible leads and no help.

I have not received replacement leads.

I have not received a single email response to my multiple requests to a refund for these leads. According to my eamil from Laura Green... her clients are entitled to a full refund if her company does not perform. See the email below:

Full Email at the Bottom...

GUARANTEE If you don’t receive your minimum amount of QUALIFIED seller or buyer inquiries by the end of the 30 day cycle, you will not be billed for another month and will remain on the program for free until the leads are provided. If it takes us 90 days and we have not provided your minimum QUALIFIED lead guarantee, you are entitled to a refund as well! THESE ARE QUALIFIED LEADS THAT HAVE THE HIGHEST CONVERSION RATE! Qualified means they are income and age verified and looking to buy or sell in the zip codes you provided. We do not send out [email protected], and they must be age and income verified before we send them to you. These are buyers that are looking now! EXCLUSIVE All inquiries are sent to you 100% exclusively within 30-60 seconds after they’ve been submitted and verified for a valid name, email, and phone number! They’re then sent to you via email, text, any CRM you’re currently using, and a FREE CRM that you receive with our program as well! The CRM shows you what homes and activity your users (leads) are doing, as far as what homes they are saving, favorites, and specific homes they are viewing. "

I copy and pasted this from the email zipbrands sent me. They changed color and bold typed the everything as you are seeing it.

So I call and email without a single returned response. They are ignoring my request.

Furthermore at one point they said they will replace 2 of the 4 leads. Hmmm. Do any of you think this is correct at close to $200 a lead?

What's even worse... Laura Green said to me on the phone.. and this is what got me to sign up "I will make sure you get a win [listing]. We will keep replacing the leads until you get a listing"

Then she said "Because, if you get a win, you will continue to do business with me"

SOLD! I should've known better, but she had me with the full refund and that she will work with me until I get a listing.

All I wanted was to get in front of a Seller!!!

I never got the chance to have a single conversation with a Seller that was actually interested in Selling their home! How can I get a listing if I can't get people on the phone or someone that is ready to Sell?

I was guaranteed over and over again these people are NOT just curious about the value of their home AND they are expecting a phone call from a Real Estate Agent.

Here's my approach to the first caller... "I receieved your message that you would like a professional valuation for a home you are considering selling"

1st Lead - Nope sorry not interested in selling anything.

I continued to ask: "what brought you to request the valuation? Are other homes selling in your area?

Lead: Nope, just curious.

Me: Ok, can you tell me more about your home so I can be as accurate as possible when putting together your free valuation then?

Lead: Nope.

Me: thanks for your time, keep my number.

The reason one pays almost $200 a lead... is to get someone a little closer to putting their home on the market than this guy.

Therefore, in my head I'm thinking, ok no problem.

I am supposed to get SUPERIOR leads so this one is saying he was literally just curious. At this cost - I expect MUCH better leads than what I could get cold calling people. Wouldn't you?!

Moral of the story, I didn't get a single conversation that lead to even a valuation of their home. Not even just curious wanted a free valuation!

Very disappointed and to boot... they have not followed through on any of their promises and their customer service has been horrific.

How do you treat people like this? We are not cattle for YOU to pick pocket. We are professionals trying to increase our business with help in advertising from people that call themselves experts in the field.

NEVER NEVER NEVER BUY ANY LEADS FROM THIS COMPANY!! SCAM ARTISTS THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY, UNDERPERFORM, AND TREAT YOU LIKE YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!

THEY OWE A FULL REFUND FOR THESE TERRIBLE LEADS

ALL of my Zillow Leads answer my calls and set appointments with me. ZipBrands does the opposite of send you Superior Leads.. They send you terrible leads and then blame it on YOU!

As part of their spiel: An Executive from Zillow and one Executive from Realtor.com came together to form ZipBrands (using REALPIN) because they new they could provide much better leads!

Do NOT fall for this!!!

I am writing this to keep all other agents and agencies from joining this company. I hope you do your research, find this article and SAVE YOUR MONEY!!

Complete and Total RipOff!
