Another month is coming to an end and we are already halfway thru 2018 - how time flies so quickly. I've learned a lot with speaking to different agents everyday, knowing about their pain points and exchanging ideas on how they overcome them.

I always want to share with you guys these ideas I pick up from having conversations with realtors about their struggles and solutions to some of the most common challenges us real estate agents, sellers or even buyers face in this business.

It's no surprise that this month's most popular blog posts cover some of those topics and some success stories from other agents to inspire.

Each and everyone of the Realtors on our list have different strategies and techniques on how to gain clients. Some of them use MEMES or funny pics, using photos of luxury homes and sceneries, using quotes and informational articles, using 1-on-1 conversational approach.

3. 3 Realtors who have mastered LinkedIn

I made a blog about the realtors who are using Twitter as a tool for reaching out to clients. But in this post, I introduced the Masters of LinkedIn.

Linkedin as I have mentioned in the blog is a social media platform which is specifically designed to cater the business community.

Users of LinkedIn are more engaged in a more business type of activity as compared to Facebook/Twitter which is more social.

In this blog we also learned that there's no specific formula or method on how to excel. Different strategies, ways and creativity can all achieve success.

The 3 Real Estate Masters of LinkedIn are:

  1. Bill Gassett
  2. Christophe Choo
  3. Debbie Drummond
