Earlier this year, BombBomb opened up a nomination process to find and rank the real estate professionals using video to grow their businesses. Hundreds of agents and brokers later – and thousands of video views later – we have your rankings!
We ranked people based on listing videos, community videos, recorded videos for emails, text messages, and social media, and live videos. Plus, we ranked them in one category that encompasses them all.
Here in this post, meet the top 10 Real Estate Video Influencers in the All Around category! Follow their links to see examples.

Top 10 Real Estate Video Influencers – All Around
Congratulations to the top ten All Around real estate video influencers for 2017 and to those honorably mentioned!
It’s important to note that these people were strong performers or top performers in other categories, but we decided to recognize each selected influencer in only one category. The winners in this category are living out an exemplary commitment to their video strategies and are doing so in several channels, formats, and styles. This information, though, does contribute to their overall commitment to connecting, communicating, and converting through video.
