How To Facebook

Real Estate Agent with Principal Managing Broker, Coldwell Banker Bain

When the words "Facebook" and "business" were first used in the same sentence, we got an inquisitve gleam in our eyes and imagined the possiblities.  Agents started posting their listings-obnoxious.  Next came the Facebook business page-95.8% are boring (imho).

As I started to use Facebook exclusively for my own personal enjoyment, business started to happen.  Here is the full story:

Good afternoon Debra. I get quite a few leads off Facebook just being friends. I don't post my listings although I do say Congrat's to the new buyer I get. Keep Face Book for what it is, Socializing.

I agree Randy!  Plus, when you are "just friends" rather than being pitched, I think you get to know each other better, which does lead to business!

Debra Face book has always been for socializing with friends and associates, if you can generate business from your page, you are doing a good job connecting with your sphere!

If we are honest and open in a professional way, people will either want to work with us or not.  If we attract people who already enjoy our personality, the professional relationship is usually easier and even enjoyable!
