50 Top Real Estate Agents To Follow On Twitter
Here's a roundup of 50 top real estate agents on Twitter. Your feed is only as good as the people you follow. So, let's get started!
Whether or not you’re an avid Twitter user, it remains a solid social network for getting leads and making new contacts.
But your feed is only as good as the people you follow.
To get you going, we’ve rounded up, in no particular order, 50 top agent Twitter accounts for you to follow today.
Let’s get into it.
When putting together this list, we found a few things each profile had in common that made the agent a stand out.
Yes, the number of followers you have does matter, but that’s not the most important thing.
For starters, you need a professional or personal profile picture.
A professional headshot can help enhance your credibility and will create a nice, clean presentation.
On the other hand, using a more personable photo showing you with your spouse, children, pet or doing something you love can really help viewers get a better feel for who you are what you value.
You also need a solid cover photo.
Your logo is your best bet.
You can easily create a custom Twitter cover image at Canva.com.
Next, it’s time to look at your bio.
Your Twitter bio is absolutely one of the most important, if not the most valuable, part of your profile.
This is your chance to make a killer first impression and let users know what you’re about.
You also absolutely want to link to your real estate website in your bio.
Just like successful blogs, you can create a great Twitter bio by being both informative and entertaining.
Let your personality shine through, but don’t let the quirks take away from detailing what it is you can actually do for prospects.
If you’re having trouble coming up with the perfect agent bio on Twitter, spend some time reading the intros from everyone featured in this post.
Once you look at what these users are tweeting, you’ll see that most all of them have a pinned tweet.
The folks over at Buffer saw a 10x increase in their leads generated from a pinned Twitter card vs a non-pinned card, and Post Planner saw a single tweet jump from 120 retweets to a whopping 450 after it was pinned.
Whatever you decide to pin, make sure it has a captivating image and strong call to action.
You can take folks to a Youtube video, popular blog post or web page.
You’ll also notice that all the featured agents here pin frequently.
Feel free to use a post scheduler like Hootsuite or Buffer, but to get the most out of Twitter you should be tweeting between at least 5-20 times a day.
You can go between sharing your own content and retweeting relevant posts.
Even if you only spend 15 or 30 minutes a day on Twitter, use your time to engage with your network and influencers.
Twitter moves in real-time, so don’t wait to respond to folks.
And make sure to respond to their @handle so whoever you’re talking to gets notified when you start or continue the conversation.
From the profiles above, you’ll see that many agents dedicate 1-5 of their daily tweets to interests outside of real estate.
Some are confident to chime in on the upcoming election, while others share inspiring quotes or funny cartoons.
You can also use a link shortening platform like Bitly or Ow.ly to make those needed links fit within your 140 character limit.
