Social Media SOLD my Listing!

Social Media SOLD my Listing!

For those who continue to dismiss the power and reach of social media, this is a testimonial that proves people are looking and paying attention. As agents, we market to each other via the MLS, on our web sites and other real estate driven media. Advertising on Facebook is a great selling tool as well and here's why I say this:

Prado & Kramer Real Estate has a page on Facebook that advertises our listings and posts real estate tips and tidbits on a daily basis. Quite likely, the buyer for my listing never would have seen this home for sale had she not been perusing Facebook.

No sooner than the listing was uploaded to Facebook, there was a show of interest in a comment. I responded back and a few minutes later, the buyer called me. We met, signed paperwork and are on our way to close.

Social media is more than just shared pictures, jokes and recipes, it can be a powerful source for your business too! This is proof positive. Happy sales to you all!

Social media is here to stay.  While I haven't sold a home because of posting it on Facebook, I have closed many happy clients that have found me through Facebook.  Well done!

Congratulations! Most of the agents I know that flatly dismiss social media really just don't have a good grasp of it, or have unrealistic expectations that it's a silver bullet and/or works overnight. Glad to read a success story here!

I too have had some success with FB. Not thru a sale of a listing, but I have obtained a few buyers that were relocating into my market. Simply staying atuned to what people are talking about led me to them.
