Market Leader's Momentum Continues With Hundreds of Companies Now Using RealtyGenerator

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - September 15, 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 has entered into an agreement to offer its RealtyGenerator technology platform to the more than 600 real estate companies and 5,000 offices comprising the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® network.

"Successful brokers are in need of technology that delivers a competitive edge, and RealtyGenerator provides them with the industry's most effective lead capture and management software system," said Phil Edwards, vice president of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. "The more than 600 real estate companies in our network are known for being leaders in their respective markets, and we believe that by adopting RealtyGenerator's lead generation and lead management system, they can continue to grow their market share and profitability."

Market Leader's agreement with the large and influential Leading Real Estate Companies of the World network is the latest indicator that, despite a down real estate market, Market Leader continues to grow the influence of RealtyGenerator, its flagship real estate broker product. In just the past 12 months, Market Leader has seen more than a 50% increase in the number of companies using RealtyGenerator.

One Leading Real Estate broker, an early adopter of RealtyGenerator, has already seen significant returns.

"Joining RealtyGenerator has reduced our dependency on repeat clients," said Harris Safier, a multi-office broker with Westwood Metes & Bounds Realty in Ulston County, N.Y. and a member of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World network. "Now we have many new buyers, and our average sale has increased, too."

Leading Real Estate Companies of the World brokers throughout the United States now have access to the many unique tools of RealtyGenerator, the industry's most powerful lead generation and lead management system. RealtyGenerator has a proven track record of helping brokers attract a steady stream of engaged prospects while providing their agents with the tools to turn those prospects into clients.

Among the most powerful benefits RealtyGenerator gives to brokers is the ability to track individual agent performance. RealtyGenerator's suite of easy-to-use tools helps brokers create a profitable online business within their existing brokerage while at the same time building market share and providing an effective agent recruiting and retention tool.

"We are gratified by the success that hundreds of real estate brokers are seeing across the U.S. with RealtyGenerator and are very pleased to be working with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World to bring this program to a membership that includes leading independent brokerage companies from across the nation," Market Leader CEO Ian Morris said.
