Twitter members in Northwest Indiana worth following

Home Builder with 219-465-8352

The first list, and obviously some will find it controversial, of Top Twitter members in Northwest Indiana


My biggest complaint is the almost non-existence of Realtors on the list.  I'll be frank, some of you live in communities with real estate professionals who really work social media hard.  So far, northwest indiana has a bunch of real estate professionals that may have signed up for a site, but don't use them and don't engage.


Jeff and Grace Safrin are the exception to this of course, they get it.   A few mortgage people get it, but all in all our industry too is under-represented by actual social types ... and more often than not people who joined because someone told them they needed a profile.


One perfect example, is that in the Top Ten Active Rain members in Porter County, only three are RE agents.  Now what in the world does that tell you?  Sorry to be negative, but it's time for real estate professionals to step it up in the Region.

I also don't understand why more NW Indiana realtors are not taking advantage of AR.  It's such a great place to learn from each other.

hey Steve - thanks kindly for the mention and compliment - just when I think I get of your post coincides with a recent technical difficulty this past week my sprint instinct phone started freezing up whenever I try to tweet from it now?? - so until i get it looked at or can figure out why (or convince Jeff I need a blackberry like his :) , I'll be less engaged when on the go :0

It has been our experience ( since in 1999 we were laughed at about getting a website ( now everyone has one....and in 2007 laughed at for blogging...that it takes a decade or so for things to become mainstream in NW IN - although "blogging is so 2008" already - see featured post on AR by David from Zillow -lol )

Are you going to masterminds NWIConnect this Thurs am? at evelyn bay coffee

If so - see you there
