    Exchanging links can help to promote your site. You need to be careful that you don't do it too much, i.e. don't do it to the extent that you have so many outbound links from your site that it looks like a link farm.

    You will get better results if you can build links that are not dependent on an exchange, i.e. get links from sites that you don't link to. This thread should be helpful to you - Can someone share some link building tips?.

    In theory, SE's don't link link exchanges. It's not a legitimate vote of confidence (which is the entire premise behind backlinks being important in SERPs).

    In practise, there's very little they can do about it. In a huge number of cases, reciprocal linking will happen organically outside of 'agreed' link exchanges or reciprocal linking agreements (e.g. if you get a positive article in the media regarding your site/business, you're going to want to link to it from your site).

    For that reason, SE's are aware that it will happen in a lot of legitimate cases outside of the 'agreed exchanges' they don't want and are willing (or forced) to accept it. They then take the stance of 'as long as it's not excessive' rather than attempting an outright 'can't do it'.

    As long as you take some care on who you link with (as touched on by Fergal), don't 'overdo it' (subjective at best), ensure you only link with sites that your users might/will benefit from (you don't want your users being spammed with non relevant links on your site), don't exchange with direct competition that could cost you business (this is nothing to do with SEO, that's simply competitive common sense) and don't spam other webmasters in an effort to grow your links (again, that's just protecting your reputation), it's a fine strategy that will benefit you.

    Do remember that no two links are the same. If you end up spending a large amount of time gaining links that are of little or no value, you're simply wasting your own valuable time.

    I think everything regarding link exchange is already tackled by Fergal and Paul here.
    Aside from link exchanges, there are still other methods of promoting your site. Some of them includes banner advertising, social bookmarking, social networking like Facebook fan pages, and forum posting.

    Link exchange for SEO

    Link exchange might be helpful for improving ranking in SERP if partner sites are theme related sites.

    Thanks for all, I will try to improve the contents of our website with update and our own analysis. Link exchange will be a part of the works.

    vtidgroup, welcome to Business Advice forum. :) Is your company aligned with any real estate associations or membership organisations? Perhaps you could find link exchange opportunities through them if they have a directory of members that includes their website addresses.

    Welcome to BAF vtidgroup.
    You could also try out Facebook ads. It's a PPC program which targets Facebook users worldwide.
    I have heard that there are companies who get successful in their site promotion using this method.
    Check out this page more info regarding this method: http://www.facebook.com/advertising/?campaign_id=402047449186&placement=pflo&extra_1=0

    Google make billions of dollars every year from the AdWords-AdSense combo. Why is that? Because they work. Ad words are probably the most efficient method to generated raw traffic for your website. In order to get started you should create an account, add lots of keywords that are related your site and set the maximum Pay-per-Click .

    I would say use the advertisement if you willng to spend money. The reason is your website will get better explose and you might get some backlink throught the advertisement.

    Another method to promote your website is to make use of Site maps. It implies giving all information of your site page to the search engines. This helps them to know and rank your website in a way that it gets best possible promotion.

    I give a best point to promote your real estate website, fist of all create a press release about your business and services and then publish it on relevant website. I hope you will get the best result.
