Digital knowledge transfer at the Engel & Völkers Academy

Personal branding: marketing yourself effectively

As a real estate agent at Engel & Völkers, you’ll quickly learn about the marketing potential of your own social media account. Personal branding can prove to be a valuable way to enhance your career. By maintaining a consistent and positive social media presence, you make a lasting impression on your target audience. This helps you boost your reputation as a real estate agent.

Personal branding works in the real estate sector

Instagram or LinkedIn are ideal platforms for establishing and building personal relationships with clients. Many Engel & Völkers estate agents already use personal branding on social media in their day-to-day working lives.

There are various practical examples that show it works: take Martin Rouleau, for instance. He is an international Engel & Völkers real estate agent, who uses his channels to market herself. ‘We are living in a mobile world, there is absolutely no doubt about it, you just have to look around. I run 90% business on my smartphone!’

Instagram and LinkedIn have the biggest potential

Instagram is a social network that mainly focuses on visual content. For instance, images of dream properties draw more attention than dry bar graphs on mortgage interest rates. Apart from Instagram, many Engel & Völkers real estate agents also take advantage of LinkedIn, to great success. LinkedIn makes it easier to network and make new professional contacts. Many real estate agents have yet to recognise LinkedIn’s huge potential.
