No.  I've managed to get a hold of a few people but they weren't ready to move.  Basically a "HOT zillow lead" but a "cold real world lead"

My demographic would unlikely contact a broker via FB. Having said that, one of my favorite clients, a national name, is always sharing my posts. Still, my viable contacts just don't come in that way and FB is basically to establish a presence, not to acquire leads. 
No one who has ever contacted me cold via FB has been worth my time. They are disloyal, unrealistic and not serious. YMMV

High volume of low quality leads. However, it's a numbers game. Add a thousand leads to your database and run excellent drip campaigns and you will get your high ROI.

There is a knack to it. Some people become good at it & others do not. It's really a complicated answer here.

There are many companies now that literally help you out with your ads.

David,

Your experience is not uncommon. One reason is those companies who specialize in FB (SM) marketing have been equipped with analytic tools for which you and I do not have access. Besides, if we are honest with ourselves, we don't have the time to burn on these analytic exercises.

My success is directly related to hiring such a company to get me started.

Be aware, there are several companies right here on AR who can do the same. What is important is to have a clear vision of your preferred client, your 'why,' and some goals. If you have collateral to work with such as CISscore, that makes it even better.

Do you have a facebook "business page"? I announce my new listings, open houses, fun community events, etc. and share on my personal page. New listings and open houses are paid boosts and when clicked go directly to my website with a lead capture. It works pretty well.
