As the number of Twitter users continues to grow, recently hitting the 200 million mark, more and more real estate agents are discovering that Twitter is a great way to connect with home buyers and sellers. Realtor’s are finding that Twitter makes it easy to share information with large number of people without having to spend a ton of time drafting the message because of the 140 character limit.
The fact is, not all real estate agents are sending out a steady stream of high quality real estate info, tips and home listings. While there are many tools out there that rank Twitter accounts, we decided to go with WeFollow for our post. The real estate category has over 7,100 real estate agents listed and they rank them on both “Most Followers” and “Most Influential”
For the purpose of this list we used their “Most Influential” ranking as most would agree that having a ton of followers doesn’t mean a person is interesting or relevant. I’m not sure of exactly what is in their algorithm but I did read that one of the factors is how many lists. So with this in mind, it’s possible that a real estate agent with less than 5,000 followers can out rank a Realtor with over 150,000 followers.
That said, here is the list of the top 20 real estate professionals on Twitter with a link to each one’s twitter account, in case you want to follow them;
