Top 10 in Live Video
Congratulations to the top 10 and honorably mentioned Live Video performers in real estate for 2017!
We loved the energy and excitement this category brings. As much or more than in any other category, these people are pioneers, going off the cuff to deliver entertaining and informative performances with a live audience and without any edits. With humility, they weren’t afraid to make mistakes on camera. Being comfortable with imperfection was a common trend in this category.
Below are honorees with live views ranging from the hundreds to the millions.
1 Michael Meier
Meier Real Estate, New York, NY
Michael is an NYC real estate agent and social celebrity. With countless video interviews in a live guest show format, he brings flair and prestige to this category. Innovation is evident in the way he’s broken through as an early adopter of live video. His Facebook page and YouTube channel are filled with live videos both professional and impromptu. Michael’s got tens of thousands of YouTube views; his Facebook views are likely double that.
2 Sue “Pinky” Benson
Pinky Knows Naples, Naples, FL
Sue is a “live” rockstar in her community showcasing local events, communities, resorts, and her interaction with her hometown. She’s very humble and passionate on camera. It feels genuine and authentic – the way live video should be. She is also a personal video connector with nearly 450 videos sent to her sphere. Sue is crushing live video. The pink lady of real estate has 8,000 views on her YouTube Channel but a whopping 30,000 on one of her Facebook videos alone.

4 Andrew and Angela Duncan
The Duncan Duo & Associates, Tampa, FL
This tandem has nearly 1 million views on their YouTube channel alone, which hosts more than 500 videos. They’ve been considered as video influencers for quite some time. As the official real estate agents of the Tampa Bay Lightning and as hockey fans, they know how to shine under the spotlight. Most of the live action is featured over on their Facebook page, but is also included on their YouTube channel. They feature auctions, giveaways, and live radio and podcast shows. Andrew and Angela are on top of their game!
5 Fredrik Eklund
The Eklund Gomes Team, New York, NY
Frederik’s one of the few television personalities in these rankings. Star of the Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Listing, he’s also a bonafide real estate agent and has made a great impact on the celebrity nature and awareness in the industry. He is a live video guru and everything he touches receives a couple hundred thousand views – whether he’s dancing, chronicling his travels, or even just goofing around. Most of his videos are on Facebook and have likely racked up 3-4 million views.
6 Anthony Lamacchia
Lamacchia Realty, Waltham, MA
Anthony showcases excellent live material with his Market Update style videos and his “in the market” style videos.

Beyond the bounds of this category, he also drives viewing of quality educational videos, like How to Get Over the Fear of Cold Calling and The Number One Mistake You Must Avoid.
9 Christophe Choo
Christophe Choo Real Estate Group, Beverly Hills, CA
As a luxury real estate agent, Christophe has attracted quite an audience. With just shy of five million views on YouTube, he is our undisputed champion for the largest number of views out of the 80 real estate video influencers. But his live videos in Facebook earned him a top 10 spot here. Christophe’s video strategy consists of local community videos, “in the community” videos, celebrity real estate news, and live Q&A. He also includes bits on his personal life – it’s clear the man loves his dogs and traveling!
