Real Estate is a diverse industry. It spans generations and numerous iterations, ranging from realtors and developers to buy-and-hold investors and the fix n’ flip crowd. Real estate professionals came from all over  — but not all of them talk about what they’re doing.

While plenty of folks in real estate have reaped the benefits of online marketing through real estate blogs and social media, many still don’t. For those of us who enjoy reading and following the writings of real estate professionals, it can be hard to find those who are both experts in the field and active online.

If you’re looking for solid, influential voices in real estate online, look no further than this list. There are so many talented professionals in the industry and we only have room for so many — so be on the look out for more lists like these down the line.

Not all of these individuals have dedicated real estate blogs, but you can still follow them on social media or check out their company websites and blogs.
