Overheard on Twitter: "Get An Agent"

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with RealSatisfied

I've shared some of the random messages I see on Twitter regarding REALTORS® or real estate.

Often they've been funny, or inspiration for thoughts on communication, or used to point out why it's important to use Twitter. The message below illustrates the potential power of social media and social messaging to spread messages for spreading good news as well as bad. This is someone who is in the real estate industry but appears to have tried to sell his home by himself. It also appears he's now happy with his real estate agent.

"I was trying to sell house with no realtor for 5 months. No activity. List with agent on Wed & Fri we have serious interest. Get an agent!" David Christopher.

Get An Agent.

Actually registered on twitter last night. At first I thought, this isn't much.  Then I read a few blogs from people who had great experiences with it and now I have changed my mind and will give it a chance. Thanks for the post!

I"m just getting on the twitter bandwagon, I feel late in the game, but better late than never.  Whats great about reading these tutorials is that I will be able to get up to speed very quickly and implement a lot of valuable techniques to increase my blog readership.

I love seeing examples like this. It also shows how someone can use something like Twitter Search to keep up with keywords ot topics on Twitter.

Loved the post ........ I've actually picked up two potential clients who found me on Twitter; one from a potential home buyer, another from an agent in another state.

It' salways nice to see an endorsement from a FSBO. It reinforces the need for using a professional especially in the current market.
