Top 10 People to Follow on Twitter for Australian Real Estate Agents – 2010 Q1

There are quite a few lists out there of people you must follow on twitter if you are a real estate agents but they are all skewed to a US audience. So I decided to create ย a top 10 list for Australian Real Estate Agents to follow. I quickly found it pretty difficult to limit this to just 10 people to follow. ย So what I decided to do is a quarterly top 10 list.

With the first quarter of 2010 just screaming past us already this initial list will be slightly retrospective but the next list will be better timed.

So here in no particular order is the first Top 10 People to Follow on Twitter for Australian Real Estate Agents:

  1. @RPDATA
  2. @realestate_au
  3. @RealEstateUncut
  4. @Domaincomau
  5. @nik_nik
  6. @BusinessTwo
  7. @inmannews
  8. @retomato
  9. @RealEstateSoft
  10. @jburslem

If you think you should have been on the list or know somebody that should have been dont despair. They will probably show up in the next list or the one after but just to make sure suggest them to me @glenn_batten

Edit: ย All the top 10 from this list, and future lists can be found in my Twitter Listhttp://twitter.com/glenn_batten/top-10-for-aussie-agents/members

Disclosure: I created and maintain the Australian Real Estate Software website which is a directory of Real Estate Software and Internet Solutions for Australian Real Estate Agents. The twitter account listed as number 9ย @RealEstateSoft broadcasts new additions to the directory.

    I also have to say that Greg Vincent http://www.realestateagentsuccessclub.com has been advising me on the social media strategy for REUNCUT for the last year. He is a genius!

    Great initiative.

    I’m going to take you to task on the selection based on it being an Australian list – or did I read your use of the word Australian incorrectly? There’s a good chance I did.

    @inmnannews, @nik_nik, @jburslem and @retomato are all based in the US. That’s a full 40% of your list. Sure, they tweet great stuff but do we not have great tweeps to follow here in Aus?

    I’ll say one thing about @domaincomau. They’re boorish, negative snobs. At least that’s the way they come across in their tweet stream. Many of their articles paint a dour picture of the future for real estate in Australia. They’re self-absorbed and that’s evident by the constat use of the hashtag in front of their name; an effort to game Twitter search. Finally the only @ reply they’ve sent within the last 4 pages of tweets was to comedian Dave Hughes. Not a single interaction with any of the thousands of agents that keep them profitable.

    How about shining a light on some local guys? Little people that interact and share freely: @prospeter, @aussiehome and @larascott for example.

    Looking forward to seeing next quarter’s list. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just so its clear… this is a list for Aussies… not of Aussies. Obviously Aussie tweeters will have a big presence here but I am not going to limit it as there is some fantastic content from tweeters like @nik_nik and @retomato

    If there is a good Kazakhstani tweeter out there that Australian real estate agents should be following they may make the list ๐Ÿ™‚ hmm.. does Borat tweet ?

    Also the focus is on people tweeting their own content that agents would get a benefit from. There are plenty of agents out there doing great work on twitter but its focussed on their clients and is not so relevant for agents themselves.

    FYI, these businesses can be deleted if you have them, Glenn:
    Anything to do with the Advenda group has disappeared.
    i.e.
    Advenda.com.au
    Vertick.com
    Adcentral.com.au
    + Uniquehomes.com.au website that they used to run
    Now, that’s an interesting and large hole a once successful group used to occupy. Wonder what the story is….?

    Good inclusion of REUNCUT. Kevin Turner does some great work!
    Our MD Kylie Emans was interviewed by him and the whole process was very professional. We are regular listeners now to his podcasts.

    HI Glenn – great article and I am proud to be associated with both Kevin Turner and Glen Vincent. They have both been inspirations in the real estate world for me personally and for the advancement of my business. It’s exciting to know that we Aussies are now up there with the best!! Cheers Terri

    @Mac

    I suggest you get your facts right as Advenda never ceased to operate.
