Realtors in general have different reasons to actually use forums like this. And also buyers and sellers. The latter is on here for quick advice or sometimes longterm advice and usually will jump off when there done with there transaction, and might jump back for small detail advice after a transaction has closed. Its not that Realtors have more time on our hands, it is the fact that our main goal in todays market is exposure, and internet exposure is on top of that list.
We are all not naive to think we will be bombarded with leads or one for that matter, but the exposure and branding is a tool. This is a different mindset than any Lawyer or CPA. They are not worried about exposure, and have little need to step outside of there ancient practices. I do think that if a these professionals did show up, they would be in for a surprise of how much it would help them brand themselves. But they donot practice the same marketing strategies as us realtors, or Im not even sure they have a marketing plan.
