There’s a gazillion real estate experts out there, but not all of them are worth following.
Actually, most of them aren’t worth following if we’re being honest. Some almost never tweet, while others are busy posting pictures of their pets or the last meal they ate.
But many other accounts are extremely helpful to follow if you’re in the real estate industry. They’re run by people who not only know what they’re talking about, but help out their followers by tweeting useful information, resources, and perspectives on this challenging field.
So to help you out, I’ve combed through a ton of Twitter accounts—and I do mean a ton—to find nine of the absolute best Twitter accounts for an ambitious real estate professional like yourself to follow.
It’s a combination of individual professionals, real estate news, and even a humor account to give you a well-rounded perspective on the real estate industry.
1. Seth Williams (@retipsterseth)
Seth Williams is the founder of REtipster.com—a website aimed at providing helpful real estate advice to people in the industry—and a very active Twitter user.
Seth offers lots of interesting tips that might give you some new ideas on how to connect with clients and get your homes sold.
2. Debbie Drummond (@vegashomepro)
It’s always fascinating and educational to get a look at how a successful realtor works in a local market on a daily basis, which makes the Twitter account of Las Vegas realtor Debbie Drummond such a good one to follow.
She links to lots of great resources for real estate agents on just about everything, from something wacky like disclosing haunted homes and murder in real estate sales, to something as obscure as how to upgrade the lawn before selling a house.
3. Xavier De Buck (@XavierDeBuck)
If you’re looking for a little bit of international perspective, a great account to follow is Xavier De Buck, a top-producing real estate agent in the up-and-coming market of Johannesburg, South Africa.
