KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Market Leader (NASDAQ: LEDR) (http://www.MarketLeader.com), an innovator in online marketing and technology solutions for real estate professionals, announced today that it is funding a real estate 'Cash for Clunkers' program providing cash to real estate agents looking to drive their business to a new level.

Agents who subscribe to Growth Leader before Sept. 23, 2009, will receive a $500 American Express® gift card from Market Leader in early December -- just in time for the holiday shopping season. To learn more call 1-877-732-9508, or visit www.MarketLeader.com/Clunker.

"We are encouraging all real estate agents that are spending money on advertising that doesn't work to junk those programs for something that does," Market Leader CEO Ian Morris said. "Thousands of agents across the nation have discovered that they can grow their business despite a down market, and we are so pleased with the results that we are offering $500 to any agents looking to try Growth Leader for themselves."

Market Leader launched Growth Leader late last year, and since that time the product has received rave reviews from customers, industry leaders, and prominent agent bloggers throughout various online communities.

"I had 8 closings in my first 2 1/2 months with Growth Leader," said Thea Agnew, an agent with Avalar Real Estate in Nashville, Tenn., "and none of which I would have sold without the system."

Growth Leader is designed specifically for agents who are focused on growing their business, but do not want to be dependent upon third party lead generation services. Instead, Growth Leader provides agents with the ability to generate active prospects who contact them directly, as well as the industry's leading solution for converting these prospects into closed business. Market Leader also provides its customers with a team of real estate and marketing experts who are dedicated to helping each customer grow their real estate business.
