Social media is a crucial tool for real estate professionals eager to build their brands. 

TikTok is becoming more and more popular in the industry with agents using the platform to promote their listings, answer questions, and talk about the housing market.

Throughout the summer, agents have been using the chopping dance to market their business and expertise. 

The chopping dance consist of the fist bumping and clapping in rhythm to a popular tune on TikTok called “The Magic Bomb ( Questions I Get Asked) [Extended Mix].”
