BoldLeads Reviews (57)
I feel so stupid. I wish I went to their Yelp / google reviews/ or here. I cannot see anything but 1 star reviews.
Tyler is HORRIBLY rude- as is everyone there.
I had spoke with Gina the sale rep and she was so sweet and even called me after our initial sales talk to tell me she went on my website and saw the photos of how I was blown up in Afghanistan serving as a combat medic and how she read all about my story and was inspired by me.
She told me she read about how I had lost my leg serving our country and how much she appreciated my service and that she would never put me into boldleads unless she thought it would help.
I cannot believe how much scammy tactics boldleads would use to get a client to pay. That phone call is what made me confident in using this company. But now I know it was just a super scammy sales tactic.
Boldleads does not care. They do not care. They are rude and mean. Made me nearly cry on the phone. I’m so stressed right now because of them.
I wish I never signed up.
My family is going to be out nearly $8000 because of this evil company. I wish they had a heart.
I truly thought boldleads cared about me
I need to record a call so you can hear how they treat the disabled.
The leads are crap - I'm paying $649 for a TARGETED AREA, but the leads I'm getting are not in the targeting area. They have automation, so a client asked not to be texted, so the automation says,"I understand, then ask them more questions" so you just pissed off that person. Do you think I will EVER convert that lead?
Do NOT waste your money, time or hassle dealing with this company!
Spend the extra money and go with Zillow, who actually provide LEADS who are ready to buy and who CAN actually BUY!
Not just bored and scrolling and wasting everyone's time!
The leads are complete junk.
I can not stress to you enough not to use this company. I signed 6 month contract and in that time most if not all the leads where bad numbers and bounce back emails. Some Leads hundreds of miles away from the areas we discussed. Ive been in the business a long time and this company is by far the worst Ive ever worked with. Everything from their bill department to their follow up. They need to be reported to the attorney generals office.
I am not here to discuss the leads and their quality, extremely poor. I am here to agree with others that this company is a scam. I was promised minimum of 20 leads per month. For 3 months they did not meet the number. Then support tells me that my sales rep misrepresented this info. When I called Tara my sales rep, she reassured me that support department is wrong. Every time I call, they are always right. I learned that lie to cover their own b... SCAMMERS. I did file a fraud complained. Below is their Concierge service text to one of angry leads. Support is arguing with me that Concierge's response is a proper one. Once this text was sent out, this person called my Broker and Department of Commerce.
Susan I have the same problem. They assured me with results. I paid $700 which I now lost and now I am tied to this horrible company that will not refund me or will cancel my subscription. Please if you found a way to get them to cancel your account please let me know. I just lost so much money to this scam and horrible company. Please let me know about what you did.
Boldleads did not misrepresent our product or expected results We are billing as per the terms our our signed agreement with the client

Mary, As I have stated numerous times to Paul D***, I bought a lead generation productWhen I purchased the product I was told by Paul "trust me you'll get leadsMy office uses real geeks which is another lead generation site, and they deliver REAL leads A lead is someone who is in the market to sell their homeI told him that he is a sales person who makes his money off of sales calls and leadsWhat if every single person who called him or he called wasn't a serious buyer or interested at allThat's not a real, qualified, genuine lead and he knows itI was on their facebook page which they screen heavily and have to approve commentsAnything negative written about the leads not being real are erasedI even had another guy on the bold leads fb page reach out to me when I said "these aren't real leads!"Of course, that was deleted Yes I was only on the site for days when I started complainingWhy after ONLY four days did I complain? I complained because I had received over leads that were OUT of the zipcode which I had paid for as an exclusive territory (a sales gimmick which they can't defend), OR people did not enter any contact infoNo nameNo numberNo emailJust an addressSometimes people would enter multiple times, same address with all fake contact infoOr the few times I actually connected with someone, they said..."please don't contact me I'm not in the market, I was just curious as to what my house is worth." One of them was even my neighbor and told me not to contact him! Therefore once again, these are not REAL, solid, actively looking to sell, leadsThese are FAKE leadsWhen I continued to confront Paul about this he said, most realtors say they start seeing results in 8-monthsSo they want you to pay $a month with no real activity and trust that all of the sudden a year later I will start getting responses from the people whom I don't have email addresses or phone numbers for, or for the people who said don't contact me I am a business personI am here to make moneyBroke people don't spend $a month on lead generation with $downI legitimately believed the sales pitch Paul gave meI wasted weeks of being able to market to serious sellers because of Bold leads This is a customer service industry and for him to make me feel like I'm an it for stating the obvious and for him to deny that this is not TRUE lead generation like Real geeks is condescending and ridiculousThe only right thing to do with such an unhappy customer is to refund all of my moneyHowever, they want to continue to argue with meI am a member of NARMy broker is the President of our association where national conventions are heldI have been trying to give them a chance, but if I am not refunded my moneyI will march right into her office tomorrow and tell her to tell every realtor in Central Florida to steer clear of Bold LeadsAs you can tell, I am extremely upsetNot only by the poor leads, but by Paul's absolute disrespectI hope that helps, if you need more evidence...I can start pulling up more emails, but honestly I've wasted so much time with them....I just want a FULL refundThat is the fair, honest and ethical thing to do

The client [redacted] entered into a 12-month agreement with our companyThe client's file indicates she had a clear understanding of her online marketing campaign and that it would generate unqualified leads in the early stages of the home selling process She was also made aware that it would take time to cultivate the relationship with these leadsAfter only months, the client requested to cancel, stating the reason as "not enough prospects wanting to sell now" We reached out to the client to review expectationsWe discussed follstrategies and acknowledged she was doing many things right We advised her to be consistent in her efforts as that would yield the best resultsShe stated that she did not have time to wait and did not want to spend money on leads that weren't ready to convert nowIn addition, she also requested a refund of her recent paymentAt that time we reminded her of the agreement she signed that states, "I am responsible for paying for the remainder of the contract termNo exceptions made for early terminations and no refunds" (please see attached) She then stated that the contract should be void because we did not provide her leads that were ready to sell now At that time we reminded her of our initial expectation conversation about different lead types and stages, which is also outlined in our terms of service (please see attached)At that time, she told us if we did not cancel her contract and refund her she would file a complaint with the Revdex.com We made every attempt to as assist the client, however, she was not willing to invest the time needed to find success
At first, it was overwhelming how many leads were coming in and I had no idea how to handle the leadsAfter a few months, I began attempting to make contact with the leadsFrom March to May, I have listed homes, and one is currently under contractI’ve earned over $39,in months! This is the best lead system out there!!
Total trash - nothing but out of area leads because FB has changed everything. All you have to do to get out of the agreement is threaten them with bad online reviews and they fold with no penalites. So glad I was able to get out when I did - otherwise I was on the hook for 9 more months. Zillow hotter leads are worth the money, BoldLeads is NOT.
