@ Barbara Thanks I hope it helped


@ Steve Hey Steve great point. The reason I follow everyone is because any person can be a potentail client in the future. You can meet somewhere on the other side of the world who actually may be moving to your area or have a friend or family member that is, so you never know. I also have made friendships with many people outside of Real Estate who have helped me learn new things that in turn help my overall Real Estate business.


I love using Twitter lists so you can kind of sort your followers.

for example here are a few types of lists I follow

A local list
local Real Estate agents
out of state agents (Networking purposes)

Thanks for commenting and I will sure to follow you and addd you to my Real Estate list.

It's encouraging to see Twitter is prevailing in various fields. A very fine resourceful article and good job on that Danny. Maybe someday you can write a testimonial or sharing a success story about how you use Twitter to reach potential clients in real estate. That'll be exciting to read for sure!

Thanks so much for including the link. I appreciate it.
