Usually Ginger Marshall a typical response 'I am reasdy to help you' will rarely get the response from the Internet consumer.

The basic concept is - ASK something that they are almost compelled to answer. 

There are some NLP based responses that gets good response rate.

If possible, send a video email - and you are most likely to get a response! (Keep tracking, though...follow up with a text email).

You have to be very personal. Make it clear that you are a person and not an automatic response. Keep it short, reference the day...weather, or holiday.

A personalized question based specifically on what you know about them, the area or type of home that are searching for, then offer free information. You have to do as Gabe Sanders advised. Give them something of value.

I have an auto-responder that goes out soon as a new person hits my web site.  When they return I send a more personalized email stating I know the city they are searching, and can offer advice.    I get about 50/50 responses.

I like Praful Thakkar 's answer. You have to try to get them to respond back to you, and asking them a question they might feel compelled to answer is a good way to do that.
