Why_Social_Media_BH&GSocial media has increased the expectation among consumers that your real estate business will have a credible online presence. Consumers actively using the Internet for their real estate search are making assumptions with the click of a mouse.

Those conclusions are based on first impressions made through your Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest pages. Visitors not only critique who you are due to the design and content found on your social sites, but the approach, voice and tone of the page.

Setting attainable goals allows you to see the big picture.
