Real estate social media groups
Take a look at the educational and engaging real estate social media groups below to join the conversation and grow your network. When visiting these boards, though, consider the following:
- Unfortunately, there will be the inevitable spam posts in many of these groups (why agents post local listings to communities dedicated to conversations about the industry and their careers we’ll never know, but it happens often).
- Open real estate social media groups are open to everyone, while private and closed groups on social networks can only be joined by requesting an invite from an administrator or group member.
- And remember: While these online communities are a great place to gain new real estate agent knowledge and connect with like-minded pros nationwide, they’re also an ideal place to identify locals working in your market and with your niche audience.
Real estate Facebook groups
