Why I like Twitter for my Real Estate Business

Twitter is a great tool for me in my Real Estate business because unlike Facebook, I can search to see what people are talking about.  Twitter lets me search to see if someone is looking for a home in your area, what’s going on in Politics or at your local board  Association, as well as for National Association of REALTORS® Midyear and National Conventions.  I can build my online relationships in 140 characters or less.  Through the use of Twitter, I have sent out referrals to agents in Arizona, found Virtual Assistants that I have been interviewing, and found my graphic artist that has redesigned my brand for me @ryanzundell.  

I can tweet asking for help with Real Estate or technology and I get quick responses. No other avenue besides Facebook have I been able to in my 16 years in the business been able to get information this quickly and efficiently.

Great RE people to follow on Twitter- @mayareguru, @therealclint, @respres, @utahrepro,@tcar. When I want to look for information I can search by using # (hashtags). Since I will be heading to DC next week for National Association of Realtors Mid Year meeting, I have been watching all the tweets of what’s going on or who’s going by watching the #midyear.  NAR convention has it’s own hashtag for their convention in November 2010 in New Orleans that people are already tweeting about- #nardigras!. Your local Association can use hashtags for any events they are doing. One that I watch for Houston Association of REALTORS is #hartrepac.

Follow me on @amyoutloud and I look forward to your tweets!!
