Pierce County's, Real Estate Book is top notch. They have close to 2,000 distribution sites, and willing to go the extra mile to make more sites increasing the production every month. The lead program is like none other, I average between 35-70 leads a month. I prefer getting the lead by text then I can respond immediately or when I get out of a meeting while the lead is still warm. I can contribute 30% more sales a year through this lead program.

We have had the pleasure of doing business with The Real Estate Book for the last four months. Keith and Melissa, the owners of the Pierce County Book, are a great team. They are very efficient, friendly, and easy to work with. They go above and beyond to provide amazing service so your ad will be a success.

The cover listing is one of the fastest ways to get your listing sold with this kind of distribution. When someone is looking for a home online, they see that photo in every store, eatery, coffee shop, and many others and it might convince them to pick up a book. Most of my leads are people that are just getting the process started and something about the book convinced them to do so.

The Real Estate Book has brought us more business and phone calls than we expected. We are especially impressed with their distribution area. This book is a great addition to our business and would be good for any realtor looking to expand their clientele.

I advertise all the listings in our office every month and The Real Estate Book has vastly increased my inventory rollover rate. Houses just sell faster!! Keith and Melissa bring a lot of energy to the contract and they help me alot. They do a lot of work to make my ads professional.

I was so pleased when The Real Estate Book came back to our area. As you know I was the first one to sign up again! I would recommend this to any Real Estate person who really wants to be successful. I firmly believe that the marketing I do in your magazine is critical to my success at building leads for buyers and gaining new listings.
