2016 Top 100 UK Property Experts on Twitter with 5,000+ Followers

Our 2015 Top 100 Estate Agent list was a huge success in terms of page visits so we’ve decided to release another updated Top 100 list for 2016.

This time, however, we have spread the net broader to allow for a wider range of networking and relationship building activities. Not only have we included estate agents but we have also listed online platforms, landlord and tenant resources, TV Presenters and interior decorators.

Third on the list is Choices founder and Chairman Simon Shinerock with 136,000 Twitter followers.

ByeMould had the privilege of interviewing Simon and found out that not only is he the founder of Choices Letting but that he is also an extreme sports fan and an accomplished author.

Furthermore at ByeMould we also like the chairman’s message that Simon wrote on the Choices website. 

In the article Simon describes 3 interesting stages of development a business (or person) passes through.

In addition Simon also tells of the challenges and opportunities that faced him when he started Choices. The article is certainly worth reading especially if you are in the property sector.

7 Networking Tips networking property estate agents auctioneers

Networking is a two-way street and to access it you must provide interesting and/or valuable information to the other party first.

Here are some networking pointers:

Have a Plan

In order to contact somebody when networking you must have a plan.

First you must decide what the final objective is. This could be getting shout outs on twitter, getting a link on a high DA website, finding a partner to launch a product or even finding a global marketing initiative partner.

As Stephen Covey said ‘Start with the end in mind’. Once you have the end objective in mind you can work backwards to work out exactly how to get there.

Be Helpful

When networking you should forget about yourself and concentrate on how you can help the other party the best. This way the other party will more appreciative off you and therefore more open to discussion.

Start Now

Don’t wait with networking until you absolutely need to do it.

If you are networking because you have to then your approaches will no doubt be too demanding and forced.

By starting with networking now you can talk to people without being rushed. Start building up quality relationships slowly and look back after 6 months or a year to see what you’ve accomplished.

I’ll bet that you’ll be nicely surprised!

Remember; quality always beats quantity

The Critical FewNetworking is an essential part of building wealth.

Not sure who to network with?

Here’s a simple exercise called ‘The Critical Few’.

Think about your business and make a list of all the people who could help your business.

Now think of the top 10 or 20 people who could make a step-change in your business.

These people are The Critical Few.

Keep in touch with them and help them out if or when you can. If you play your cards right your generosity will be reciprocated at some point in the future.

Select Your Next Group

Make a list of the next 20 or so most important people on your list.

This is your next tier group which you should also definitely keep in touch with on a regular basis. The intensity of approach wouldn’t be as strong as for the critical few list.

Be Generous

When helping someone out don’t expect anything in return.

You’ll make the best impression and keep your psyche strong if you truly love helping other people.

Take It With a Grain of Salt

Not everybody will reciprocate your good will. Don’t get disheartened about it. Just move to the next person who is more likely to reciprocate.

We all make mistakes, we are all learning.

If you are having fun it will be seen by the other person.

Property Networking Events

Property networking events are held all over the UK with some of the more popular events being:

From personal experience I can attest to the fact that these events are alot  of fun.

Formats vary from having a single keynote speaker and/or smaller guest speakers to speed networking which is fast and furious.

Great fun and a great way to build your contact list.
