I am considering purchasing a list from them that is built of all 401k rollovers in my area with balances of 100k-500k.  Apparently they have cold called these people and discovered that they have just recently changed jobs or retired and have over 100k in a old 401k that could be rolled into an IRA.  All of this sounds great but also almost too good to be true.  What has been your experience with this company or any other company that provides lists like this?  Thanks!

I have used sky view management, but I used 150kmin I got an alright response on the mailers I sent, but... I managed to get more apts. set going door to door and using it as a conversation starter. all in all it was worth the money, I tried to have them get me another list but there wasn't enough people to pull maybe I will try in a month.

I've talked with Skyview before.  I was a little cautious because all these lead list brokers get their leads from the same place.  They just package them a little differently and put their own spin on it.
 
They definitely try to sell the 401k rollover leads a lot.  I remember the guy I spoke with said they get their numbers from the credit agencies.  So, if I'm hearing you right, Equifax and Transunion are calling people who are telling them they have 401k's at their previous employer.  I've never gotten such a call or ever heard of anyone else getting that call.
 
If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. 
 
And to add to the suspicions I already had, some guy is spamming this site saying "he used a guy named J.C. and has already closed 12 leads".  It's pretty obvious this poster works for Skyview and could even be J.C. himself.  When was the last time we ever saw a spammer list the specific name of the guy he used?  The company, yes.  The name, not too often.
 
Just some food for thought I guess.  Let us know what you decide to do though.

Hi The reason I used my agents name is because I will get a referal price for my next purchase. And isn't SPAM refered to as an unwanted email? Yes, I do believe thats the term used. So thanks for your input, but it was clearly a bad guess for you, as was using the term "SPAMING".  And from the 400 I picked up I have gained 12 new clients, and have set some apts. for later this month. This is my first day registered and I have been reading some of the fourms, and yes I replied to a few that I thought could help some people out. Isn't that the object of this site?

Where do you work?  You are a spammer.  100% of your quotes are to sell Skyview leads.
 
Answer this question:  When you have a wrap account of C share mutual funds, do you buy the mutual funds at NAV or with a 3 year CDSC?
 
Another question:  What does ICA mean?
 
Last question:  Which of these four does not fit?  Belgium, Russia, India, China?
 
 
Let's see if this "new member" can figure this out.  Very easy for those of us in the business.

How are you going to get a referal if you don't tell us to use you as a referal, and what name do we use bfivestar? I'm sure J.C. will know exactly who we are refering to. Stop the bs really.

Can you answer the questions?  Yes or No?
Jun 19, 2008 1:21 pm

Can you make a profile with a name? Can you actually give some people advice? And for the guy who was so SMART to wonder how I would get a refera l" RIVER KING" Have you ever thought of looking at the member profile the name is there, my god are there really firms out there that hire idiots like you? Thanks for your answers.

You're a douchebag with grammar and spelling errors so severe it's obvious you don't have the safistication nor basic knowledge to be in this business.
 
On the slim chance you are in this business, as you claim Brian from Edmond, OK with EDJ, you are the most retarded broker if you can't answer those questions, especially #2 since you are with EDJ. 
 
You are a piker, spammer, and retard...a true triple threat.

First rule of selling, dip shit, if you don't ask for it you don't get it. You didn't ask us to give you credit for a referal, don't expect us to go do our home work to do you a favor. You're spam... it's as easy as that.

Is that all you passed?  I thought EDJ makes you get the series 69 in addition to the 7?  You must have the 69 to be an "advisor", right?  Yes or no?

Yeah please keep your negitive coming. It makes me think of the old timers that I will be putting out of work! And here is your IP address, thanks for letting me know where you are.

Hey douche - I'm not clicking on that crap.  We all know you're a liar and couldn't even answer the three basic questions.  I'll ask again:

 
1.  When you use a wrap account with C shares, do you invest at NAV or with a 3 year CDSC?
 
2.  What is ICA?
 
3.  Which of following four does not belong:  Belgium, Russia, India, China?
 
Don't use Skyview Management.  We can see the true people that work there:  A bunch of liars and people full of crap.

Where did this loser go?  It's pretty obvious you are with Sky "crap" View Management.  You wouldn't qualify to work at EDJ and someone in another post said, "You just need a pulse".
 
I reiterate:  I don't trust Sky View Management for leads as I don't trust the way they conduct business here.

I Have used a couple of prospecting companies. I used Sales Genie and Sky View Management. One Thing you have to know when using leads is that your not going to close even 30 percent of the list. You have to find a company whose information is accurate. I picked up 274 leads from skyview and i closed 9 accounts. I also didn't work the list as hard as i should have. I forgot how many i closed with sales genie. Another tip, A list is only as good as the person working it.

What kind of list did you buy from Skyview?  And what kind of shop are you at?
Jun 23, 2008 12:43 pm

I bought a long term care list from them.  I figured i could use that list for both LTC and IRA Roll overs. I still got to go through about 70 names.
