Relocation Agent Network Leads the Way in Social Media

Thursday 23 May 2013

Relocation Agent Network members have been listed in Zoopla’s Property Power 100, a national league table of the 100 most influential estate agents in social media. A number of Relocation Agent Network members made the Property Power 100 due to their high levels of activity and number of followers on social media site, Twitter.

In total, 11 Network members reached the top 100, with five making the top 25, including current Network Estate Agent of the Year, Thomas Morris, who came third. Other members to appear in the league table include; Anthony Pepe (7); Peter Heron (12); Pygott & Crone (19); Gascoigne Halman (22); Petty Estate Agents (55); Northfields (45); Philip Martin (54); Streets Ahead (64); Ryder & Dutton (74); Manning Stainton (96).

Using a points system, the league table identifies those estate agents that are the most influential on social media site, Twitter. Company Twitter accounts must meet a number of criteria to make the top 100, including a high number of followers, re-tweets, list memberships, mentions and replies. Launched in May, Zoopla announced that they will be monitoring additional social media sites at a later stage.

As a Network of independent estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales, Relocation Agent Network is highly selective in its membership, basing its criteria on quality of service, local knowledge, and professionalism. Each member is hand picked after thorough checks, which indentifies them as the Local Expert in their area for buying or selling a property.

Managing Director of Relocation Agent Network, Richard Tucker said, “We are delighted to see how many of our members have made Zoopla’s Property Power 100. Members use social media to promote their national connections and local expertise. Social media is becoming an ever more important part of estate agency, helping businesses to build their brand and reputation in local markets. As a Network of – in our opinion – some of the best estate agents in the UK, it is fantastic to see our members leading the way in this field.”
