Google will offer a method for verification of your local listing.

Choose your verification method and follow the instructions provided. If you choose to verify by mail, make sure to be on the lookout for a postcard from Google that will arrive in 1-2 weeks. Once the postcard arrives, make sure to follow the steps on the postcard to finish your verification process.
