The real estate industry has changed considerably in recent years with the rapid growth of social media. Leading publications and industry experts are now leveraging these channels to distribute content that was previously buried in expensive books and training courses.

Today, people in all sectors of the industry – investors, agents, property managers, brokers, mortgage advisors, strategists – have access to a tidal wave of actionable content. But, as more professionals adopt social media, in this case Twitter, more information is flooding the news feed making it difficult to differentiate the good from the bad.

I’ve put together a shortlist of real estate professionals that are actively sharing valuable content on Twitter. Content covers investment, marketing, housing and economic trends, strategy and a whole lot more.

Follow these 29 experts and you’ll:

  • Learn latest industry trends and forecasts
  • Learn proven investment strategies for any budget
  • Learn how to market your investments and maximize ROI
  • Learn how to generate passive income with rental investments
  • Learn how to negotiate home buys/ sales
  • Learn how to manage investment properties

There are hundreds of real estate professionals that are active on Twitter. However, this shortlist includes the cream of the crop. These people tweet almost exclusively about real estate, and everything is actionable. No fluff, just great content one tweet after another.

I have included a link to each Twitter account, as well as a brief description and quick links to my favorite posts written by each expert.

Let’s jump in!
