Market Leader Inc. says it’s on track to post positive adjusted earnings this year, after boosting revenue for the ninth quarter in a row and trimming losses during the first three months of 2012.

First-quarter revenue was up 41 percent from a year ago, to $10.2 million, helping the Kirkland, Wash.-based provider of lead management and marketing tools for real estate professionals cut its net loss for the quarter to $2.5 million, down from $4.3 million a year ago.
