Local Real Estate Agency Accepting New Agents Via Twitter, Giving Away iPads

Charleston Your Home Release

CHARLESTON, S.C. – As the Charleston real estate market continues to improve, more people are deciding to become real estate agents. Charleston Your Home, a boutique real estate agency, is taking a different approach to recruiting agents with a new Realtor Roundup campaign that offers iPads and accepts applications solely via Twitter.

Because the owners of Charleston Your Home believe that the use of the latest technology is essential for marketing real estate, they're looking for agents who are knowledgeable of these tools. To accomplish that goal, they have launched the Realtor Roundup campaign, running June 15-July 15. They will be accepting applications only via Twitter during the campaign and will also offer an iPad to any agent who joins the agency within that time frame and upon closing of their first $250,000 transaction.

Additionally, Charleston Your Home will be producing a YouTube video to email to local agents, taking a light-hearted look at the attempts to recruit agents in this market. The email will invite agents "who know what Twitter is" to "tweet" their application.

Charleston Your Home has won a national award for best agent website and sold a home via Twitter last fall. They also write the Charlestonism blog, maintain a Facebook page and are active on Twitter, Flickr and YouTube.

"At Charleston Your Home, we've always been different than any other real estate agency and we're looking for agents who stand apart, as well," says Diane Szoke, co-owner of Charleston Your Home. "By only adding tech-savvy agents, we're reachiing consumers in a way they expect in today's Web-based market place, and that in turn makes for a successful career in real estate for the agent. Plus, who wouldn't want an iPad? They're such a great tool for Realtors on the go!"

To apply to join the Charleston Your Home team, send a Direct Message via Twitter to @Charlestonism with a link to a resume on the Web or a LinkedIn profile. For more information and complete details about the campaign, please visit the Charleston Your Home Charlestonism blog.
