Full Episode Details

Buying a home is a huge expense. For most people, purchasing a property to call home is the largest investment they will ever make.

The way we browse for the perfect home has changed a lot since the good old days of newspaper listings and real estate drop-ins. Nowadays, you can search and potentially find your dream home from the comfort of your couch (or wherever you happen to be). Kayla Roofe, the Sr. Social Media Manager at RE/MAX LLC, leverages social media to broadcast new listings and ultimately, sell more houses.

She works with a staggering 130,000 RE/MAX agents from all over the world. Aligning that many team members around social and making sure that they’re doing it ‘right’ has got to be one of the most difficult jobs out there. Thankfully, Kayla is a social pro herself and doesn’t hold back when it comes to sharing the best tips for selling something as expensive and potentially life-changing as a brand-new home.
