Real Estate Social Network: 20 Useful Social Media Groups in 2024

Social media and real estate have gone together like two great tastes since the advent of social media. If you’re new to a social media platform (or to real estate), it can even feel overwhelming. But there’s no need to be intimidated; the whole point is to learn. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help both new and seasoned agents.

Social network for real estate agents

These are networks or accounts that are created and crafted to help real estate agents with different aspects of their jobs. Some specialize in marketing tips, others are for referrals, and others are to help you troubleshoot tech issues.  There are many reasons to join a real estate social network; the best one to join depends on your goals and what you’re hoping to improve right now. There are three main social networks where you’ll want to consider establishing a presence as a real estate agent: Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

Facebook - As one of the oldest and broadest social networks, Facebook is a must-have for agents.

LinkedIn - LinkedIn is more buttoned-up and business-like than the other social networks, and that’s a good thing for agents who want to meet other professionals! That’s the LinkedIn superpower.

Instagram - As a platform largely focused on gorgeous images, Instagram and real estate were made for each other. Start your own account to post listing photos and “day in the life” information about yourself

Real estate social media networking

The ideal place to network with these individuals is through online communities - known also as social media groups.

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:

  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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

Here are the top Facebook groups that agents might consider joining.

Etiquette in real estate social networking

Social media marketing for real estate is about more than just promoting your listings, blog posts, and website — it’s also about engaging with your customers and industry peers. Beginner real estate agents may not realize this at the start of their career, but networking with industry pros (other agents, mortgage lenders, appraisers, and inspectors) is one of the best ways to grow your business. Follow these five tips and you will be successful in creating new social media connections. Good luck!
