Please bear with me for just a few moments, I need to take a break from the awards to talk to you about something very serious.

Hi, my name is Dana, and I’m a Twitter junkie. Alright, the hard part is over, now it’s time to figure out where things went wrong. You see, ever since I began exploring what real-estate agents were doing on Twitter, I’ve grown obsessed with their every tweet. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve actually created a secret account, followed every agent on Twitter and confessed my sickness to @secrettweet, using my new secret account. Whew … I must admit, it feels really good to get all of this off my chest. Now that I’ve lightened the load a bit, let me share of few of my favorites (along with my thoughts of course):

Careful everyone, it appears that Jorge is looking for a pick-up game of “Tune in Toyko”.

Marquis clearly understands what Twitter is all about. Step into his profile page and you’ll be greeted with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and mood lighting. You don’t have to invite me twice.

So there you have it, the crème de la crème of real estate agents on Twitter. If I’ve missed anyone (highly unlikely) who deserves to be perched up (no pun intended to our Bluebird boy) and recognized for their creative talents, let me know. Besides, I really need it.

Twitter Is a Realtor’s World, We Just Tweet in It

And now, for a brief intermission from

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:
