Chris: Yes, absolutely. Where so many in this industry go wrong is they seek out FB groups where other RE professionals hang out. Why do that? We need to be frequenting local groups where real estate consumers are visiting and engage in those groups.

I am not, does that work for you Chris?  I have respect for my friends, many of which really are good friends I have stayed in touch with over the years on Facebook.  I dont want to pepper them daily with USE ME, WORK WITH ME, etc.  At the same time, if they dont know I am a Realtor, and have a need I can help with, it is mutally benifitical to us both to make contact.

Yes. I am active in many Facebook groups that share my personal interests. 

Smart real estate professionals create Facebook groups for their home neighborhoods and for the community activities they support.

Used to be but a lot of time can be wasted there. A few are good informational sources, and if there is a real estate agent group in your city it can be helpful to see what they are posting.

#ThinkSink when you need an agent.

I'm a member of about 4/5 and it just seems like a hassel and just a big cesspool of other agents attacking anyone who posts anything about a home, house, rental, etc.......I feel like a shark circling the waters up above........No business generated.  I still post relative info but I don't look for business anymore.
