Earlier this month, Marissa Miley rocked the world of real estate with her eye-opening piece on real-estate companies using the web to promote their business. As someone who "just can't let go" of print, I found myself in tears by the end of her article, simply by the mere thought of my beloved real-estate advertisers moving away from bus benches and billboards. Rather than curling up in the fetal position and crying myself to sleep, I've decided to give this web thing a look-see and explore what real-estate pros are doing on Twitter. Below are just a few of my observations:
I pledge allegiance to Ken for all that he does for America. J/K, Ken, J/K. We salute you, Mr. Pujdak -- you're awesome. Oh, one last thing: You should follow @GOP; looks like you might dig their tweets.
Not only is Mike your agent, he's also mine. In fact, he just sold me Mr. Snuffleupagus' house on a short sale. Apparently Elmo lives next door -- I'm pumped.
Oh, geez! Sorry, man, didn't realize you were on the phone. Look, I'll come back and follow you later.
Mooooove over, @aplusk; here comes @cowlady.
Whoa, MS-DOS on your phone. That's sweet dude! Listen, Tom, I think you're really suave, so please don't take this the wrong way: Your tie is a little crooked. But you're still super cool.
Ten bucks says that you're wearing Bermuda shorts below that suit coat. Seriously though, Alan, this is so funny, I have the exact same wall mural in my office.

OK, so maybe I'm coming around to this internet movement -- damn you, techies. Clearly, there are some very talented Realtors advertising their businesses online. If you happen to stumble across an agent on Twitter that deserves to be recognized, send it over. I'll give it a whirl.
