9 Real Estate Agents Who Get Twitter Right Today

9 Real Estate Agents Who Really Get Twitter Right

There are many real estate agents on Twitter today. But I have found most of them just tweet out their own listings. They treat Twitter like a billboard for their listings and their branding campaigns.

And yes, some realtors still protect their tweets. Luckily I have found some great examples of real estate agents that get Twitter today! (It took a bit of time I must admit.)

Why These 9 Real Estate Agents?

The 9 realtors I choose for examples are using Twitter like the social network is intended for. Most importantly these real estate agents are using Twitter to engage with others and become known as an expert in the real estate field.

Many of these real estate agents mentioned have their own blogs and have been using Twitter for 7+ years.

Here are the 9 Real Estate Agents who get Twitter Right!

1 Bill Gassett, of RE/MAX Executive Realty in MA.

Bill doesn’t just tweet out listings, he tweets out a lot of information and engages with others.

Of course he has his own blog and posts regularly on it.

Bill Gassett, realtor

He is one busy real estate agent in New England.

Bill has been on Twitter since 2007 – over 10 years – more than a decade of tweeting!

When you look at his profile and notice, he tweets about every hour and retweets and engages with other users. That shows he is ACTIVE.

Bill has over 292,000 tweets as shown above in his profile!

Of course he has a great real estate website and blog to tweet from. Learn more how you can get a great real estate website too.

Most of all I believe Bill is a great example of how a real estate agent can use Twitter today.

2. Anita Clark at Warner Robbins, Inc.

anita clark

She has been on Twitter for 10 years and is consistent with her tweeting but keeps up bio updated. Anita has her own blog called Anita’s Corner.

She does particpate in various blogging communities and shares content of others on her social networks. She is not afraid of video and has her own YouTube channel as well.

I’ve met Anita via the Tribber network and over all Pinterest.

3. Shannon Holmes, Great Homes Alabama from Birmingham, Alabama.

 

Shannon is my 3rd pick. I really liked how she shares things with retweets and others content on her Twitterfeed.

shannon holmes

She also has a nice blog that she is becoming known for her expertise in real estate in the Alabama area.

Being interviewed in Bloomberg BusinessWeek for her expert knowledge of the Birmingham Real Estate Market makes Shannon an influencer in her niche.

Shannon knows how to use Twitter and it looks like she is growing her following. She has been on the social network since 2009.

4. Erin Alls – Silicon Beach Homes.

Erin changes her pinned tweet with videos as you can see below. She is not afraid to get in front of the camera and show who she is.

People can easily connect with her. Once they meet her in person they will feel like they already know and trust her.

5. Kim and Steve Starry from Keller Williams in Orlando, Fl.

I’ve added this couple recently to this blog post as they have an impressive 90,000+ Twitter followers. (Do note: They are from a large market!) This couple uses some nice emoji’s and personal info in their bio. 🙂

If you look through their Twitterfeed you will see that they share great information on real estate and mix it up with quotes, etc.

This real estate couple also has a rocking blog that is showcased in their bio above.

6. Jim Duncan,  of Central Virginia.

Jim Duncan is a lot like Dean from above with his use of Twitter. His blog looks to be of the same set up with lots of informative topics on real estate in his area.

As a result he retweets often and “likes” a lot of stuff on the Twitter network. Sharing photos of his daily life and not posting his listings is refreshing to see from a real estate agent.

Consequently this real estate peep understands what social media is about. It’s not about selling or being sold to on Twitter.

7. Sherry Chris, CEO of Better Homes and Gardens.

I love seeing a CEO tweet. And Sherry Chris surely does! She really gets and understands Twitter.

And, she is not afraid to show us who she is and what she is about.

Sherry has been tweeting since 2008. Sherry has quite a following too. You can tell she enjoys using the network and continually tweets.

She shares all kinds of useful information about the real estate market and current events and holidays.

Therefore if you follow Sherry you will be glad you did as she covers quite a range of topics that are interesting.

Sherry shares all kinds of useful information about the real estate market and current events and holidays. #Twittertips Click To Tweet

8. Debbie Drummond, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Debbie Drummond retweets, engages with others and uses scheduling tools to tweet.

debbie drummond

She has an active real estate blog (since 2011) that she regularly updates and keeps her as a great source of real estate information.

Most noteworthy on this choice is the Lists. It look to be one of Debbie’s way of managing her Twitter account much like those that master Twitter with ease.

However, timesavers on Twitter are a must for busy real estate agents.

Debbie also has a great follow ratio with over 12,000 followers on the social network. People love to follow when one shares relevant information as she does.

 9. Amy Shair from RE/MAX in North Carolina.

 

amy shair

I really liked Amy’s profile. She explains what she does and that she is an award winning RE/MAX realtor. She includes some of her favorite things that are personal.

Amy has a beautiful website that is linked on her Twitter bio and includes an updated blog.

Having this blog updated gives her more content to share out on the social networks like Twitter.

What More Rrel Estate Agents Need to Do on Twitter:

  1. Engage with others and network. Just tools like Viral Content Buzz and Triberr if you have a blog. If you don’t have a real estate blog, get one!
  2. Share relevant content to help buyers and sellers along the way buying or selling a home.
  3. Be consistent. Use tools like the Buffer, Hootsuite or my favorite Agorapulse to save time and yet grow a presence at the same time.
  4. Have a profile picture and use your name. Using your own name vs. a company name gives you more of an authentic profile.
  5. Furthermore just use Twitter. Like the general Twitter population many realtors just put up a profile and leave it. Like the old saying goes “use it or lose it“.

I was trying to make a point that content was super important here since everyone on the list except Sherry had their own blog – but that Sherry was the CEO of BHG so she had plenty of content to use even without her own blog. Sorry to be confusing!

  • Hi Lisa,

    Bill and Mark are excellent. They belong to a few tribes I’m a member of. Super generous dudes, they often retweet my stuff. They get Twitter, big-time.

    We are free to share/help through our business opportunity left and right but if you help others by promoting them, and if you engage regularly, Twitter gets easy. Really easy. As far as gaining traction on the site.

    I set aside 1 hour daily to respond to a bunch of folks who retweet my stuff. I also retweet others thru the day. I find myself on top interactor lists daily because I do some business tweeting but a whole bunch of engaging and sharing other people’s content too.

    Super post and awesome message for tweeting real estate agents.

    Ryan

    • Hi Ryan, Cool to know – I’ll have to check that tribe of yours. Oh yes helping others and sharing others stuff is key on Twitter for everyone. I fell off a little the past few weeks with vacation but I’m back into it now. I need to engage more with the new followers, It is so important 🙂
      Thank you Ryan and I really appreciate you taking the time to comment here too today.

  • Hi Lisa,

    This is one timely post for me. I am in the middle of trying to purchase an investment property and one agent didn’t even use the phone to call me back. Others went via email to chat. Most didn’t text. And worse of all the websites were horrible. There were no social share buttons.

    Imagine how nice it would be to tweet a message? Gosh these guys are so awesome. Wish I were looking in those places. Have any in Seattle Wa? lol.

    -Donna

    • Hi Donna, isn’t that amazing they done call back or even text? It does seem most love to email these days but tweeting would be so much quicker to start. I’ll have to see if any are in that area. Good luck on finding your investment property. Thank you for coming by Donna and I hope your New Year is starting well!

  • I do not use Twitter much because I truly don’t care what someone thinks of their breakfast burrito. I don’t have time for personal opinions on meaningless babble. Your article is very well written and informative. Great source and examples to make your point. I enjoy Real Estate greatly, I have been in and around real estate for 23 years and I love learning something new every day. Glad to see agents using Twitter and other forms of communication without the need to comment on personal experiences. Thanks for the article.

    • Welcome to Inspire to Thrive Rob. LOL, Not everyone shares their breakfast on Twitter these days. Twitter is a great way to share your information and what you know on our industry to become a leader and influencer. Thanks for coming by with your input and I hope you reconsider using Twitter in the future Rob. Have a great day!

  • Hey Lisa,

    Twitter is the best tool to reach more people. In the real estate business, the best thing which brings more customers is the promotion.

    And Twitter is the platform many agents use. I have noticed many people sharing their strategies about the current market and the value of the apartments.
    ‘Glad to know about some more real estate agents.
