I am convinced more every day that social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn..... are the future of Real Estate. The other day I had a lunch reception for 30 new agents that joined our association and when introducing myself to the group I told them to embrace the Internet. Use the social networks and they, along with other board members, looked at me like I was speaking another language. One person out of the entire group came up to talk to me about social networking. Hard to believe. The rest will most likely rely on mailings, open houses, other print media and the name of the companies they work for. At some point they will then try to catch up with the rest and always be behind.
Associates will listen to me at some point. Until then I will stay on this soap box.
