7 real estate brokerages and companies you should be following on social media
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that social media is more important than ever, both for agents and for brokers. In fact, 44% of all home buyers look online for information about a property first, and for younger generations, that percentage increases greatly. It only makes sense that you’d market your services where your clients are, right?
While there are different strategies and different ways of serving the needs of your consumer base via social media, some real estate brokerages have figured out great ways of doing it. They serve as excellent examples for everyone in real estate. Here are seven of our favorites!
1. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
It’s hard to beat Berkshire Hathaway’s social media game right now. Few companies have presented consistent branding and have created welcome posts for individual agents on their level. They’re also a good example to follow in posting helpful articles, whether it’s real estate news and tips or home styles and trends.
2. William Raveis
William Raveis specializes in luxury homes, which means they’ve got to find creative, innovative ways of describing grand and elegant homes for sale. Using video to explore and sell these homes is an excellent strategy for making a potential buyer more familiar with a home.
3. Sotheby’s International Realty
Like William Raveis, Sotheby’s specializes in selling luxury homes, but their approach is more straight-forward. Every post is high-quality, using photo and video tours that ensures the audience knows just how extravagant these houses are.
4. Howard Hanna
Howard Hanna showcases consistency, using company branding and in-house designs to leave zero doubt you’re reading a post from Howard Hanna. Along with that, they’ll share relevant articles and posts designed to help potential buyers learn more about the process of home buying.
5. Coastline Realty
This smaller firm, based in New Jersey, is quickly garnering a reputation for a smart, relevant mix of helpful articles, videos, home tours, customer testimonials, and more. Their social media represents a jack-of-all-trades, which is a great impression to leave on a potential customer.
There are a lot of lessons to take in here, but two stand out above the rest: be consistently active on social media and create a variety of posts that engages your audience and spreads your sphere of influence.
