Communicate Virtually - Open Houses and Live Streaming with Clients

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

In keeping with the mandate guidelines and in accordance with other REBNY members, agents should not be showing properties, holding open houses, or taking out clients during this time. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t be a virtual real estate agent!

Communicating virtually has never been so easy and with the rest of the world at a standstill, now’s the time to break through the noise as the expert you are. The platforms listed below are great ways to live stream listing tours and conduct meetings with clients, agents, managers, vendors and other people essential to your business.

Facebook Live

Bring your viewers behind-the-scenes in a way that feels different than any other form of media. Live is the best way to interact with viewers in real time and your followers can receive notifications when you go live, so they know to tune in to your broadcasts at just the right time.
