Real Estate Developers
A great place to find especially real estate investors but also home buyers, renters and other real estate professionals is the followers of the Twitter accounts of local real estate developers. Note that developers often have a central company Twitter account but will have individual Twitter accounts for each of their current pre-construction, newly built or established projects.
Here are the names of some of the most prolific residential real estate developers in the Toronto area. Be sure to visit each of their websites to find out the Twitter account names of all their projects.

This sort of research is prized by real estate investors, and obviously many real estate professionals also invest in real estate part time, so look for real estate investor groups on Twitter.

Online Classifieds Sites

Next, go to the major search engines like Google and Yahoo and do searches for local sales reps. Typically people with high ranking in search engines have large numbers of Twitter followers and are therefore good reps to co-operate on deals with. Look through the top 20 results for a number of different searches. For instance, if I was a Toronto sales rep I’d do the following searches to find other reps in my area:
“Toronto real estate”
Next, Follow as many people as you can. To do this, look under the Follow/Unfollow Users menu and click where it says Follow.

Then click the Start button in this area to commence the automated Follow procedure.
From Day 3 onward, do everything that you did in Day 2 every day. Continue reading
