Busy REO agent=never enough free time. You might not have extra time to play around on Twitter, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your while. Twitter is an excellent source of industry news, thoughtful articles, and bits of information that save you tons of time. Use your twitter feed to keep you up-to-date on all things default by following these accounts:



The best part about following RES.NET is they always post about scheduled site maintenance and when the site is down or unexpectedly slow. This can save hours of your time trying to upload photos or complete tasks. If you see the site is down when one of your tasks is due, you can start contacting the right person to alert them of the difficulty instead of wasting your time and energy on a website that just won’t work.


Follow Equator for the same reason as RES.NET. You’ll be updated on network difficulties and outages in real time. This account also tweets advice and news aimed at real estate professionals.
